I'm loving the textured look to this, especially the stem. You've done a great job on that, and I like the presentation of it too with your ivy brushes.
Thank you... I wasn't sure what to add to this one as it was a pain to try to involve it in a composition :/
Very nice! :] i like what you did with it
love the texture feel
Really convincing 3-D effects going on with this one!!
