Let Them Eat Cake

I've been dying to colour this image of Marie Antoinette and her cakes from Aurora Wings for a while now but to be honest, I was a tad scared of her! I thought she would be really hard to do, but in fact she wasn't at all. Just a bit time consuming as there are so many little parts to her.
