I've reached that point and am declaring this picture done. DONE, I say! I've added those little color details, the beadwork, added some shadows. I'm afraid if I play with it too much longer it will be overworked. It's a more "pastel" piece than I usually do, but it fits the piece. I hope the gentleman that commissioned this will be pleased.
This will be a limited edition print that I'll have for sale at MFF.
See the evolution of this piece!

Edit: Just in case there was interest, I have Stage 2.5 in scraps. It kind of shows the background in mid-transition:[link]
