Brushy brushy

Artist's comment: I watched a video tutorial about using Photoshop's gradient maps for coloring images, and wanted to try it. So I painstakingly painted this scene in greyscale in order to color it. Yeah, it worked, but I didn't end up using this workflow again. Maybe some day.
Anyway, the characters are my fursona Azure and their alternate universe counterpart Carmine from this silly dimension-hopping story idea I sort of have.
Please look at the rug. I painted that pattern by hand; no copy-paste, no clone stamp, just hours of pointless work. Never again. My hand hurt so much afterwards.
