Just as an exercise, here were some my goals with this character design:
◘To create a costume that appeared both functional and somewhat memorable. It's really easy to over-design fantasy costumes, to the point where they're no longer practical. I aim for something an actor could wear in a realistic setting.
◘Use soft lighting. Slightly cool primary in the foreground, with a warm secondary kick light.
◘Stay loose with the brushwork wherever possible.

The idea for this came about during a very busy week, but I couldn't wait to get it out. I'm fairly happy with the figure, though the environment may be a little lacking by comparison. I wanted the foliage to seem out of focus, but it may simply appear rough and unfinished. If I get some more time, I might noodle on some more.
