Even though its digital, I love the traditional feeling bit in that the circle is not crisp and clean. It speaks louder and works well with your composition especially where they are breaking the borders. It's uniform and comfortable rather than jarring. It could be a book illustration I think.
Thanks! Silly me, I didn't even made the connection XD The character is a redesign but she always had red hair, and I chose to make the guardian a wolf instead of a bear, very recently. I have to pay attention to those things in the future hehe.
