The guards caught fleeting glimpse of the lithe figure sprinting away from them and unleashed a hasty volley of bolts and arrows at it. Without breaking stride and with rapier in hand the suspect vaulted over the low stone wall. The female liani looked back and her eyes met those of the watch officer. In that brief instant a sly smile danced across the rogue's face; The watch officer wasn't a mind reader but he knew what the suspect was thinking.

    Better luck next time.

    Then the rogue vanished into the shadows of the city.

    Another of the characters our 5th Edition D&D campaign that :iconcaerdwyn: is running. Also it is a Patreon reward for him, and it is one of the pieces from my last Picarto Picarto Icon  stream. The character's name is Piq and she's been an important part of the party dynamics. Oh and don't let her throw a rock at you or anything you value.

    This piece also shows the differences between planned art and spontaneous art created on the fly during the stream. When started laying out the drawing during the stream I accounted for the figure and their pose on the paper. however about three quarters of the way through the underdrawing I realized I'd forgotten one very important element. Her rapier. Let's just say that sword goes to the very edge of the paper and the blade is bit short for that type of sword.

    My next Picarto Picarto Icon  stream will be 10/27/18 starting at 5:30pm Pacific. It will be a Halloween themed all request stream. So start thinking of ideas, but don't tell me until the stream that night.

Many artists like a cup of coffee. I like coffee as well. If you enjoy what you see here consider buying me a Ko-Fi Ko-fi (2017) Icon mini

I bet as she leapt over the wall, the watch officer was thinking, " I sword wish we could catch her."

Gotta love that smirk. It is like the escape was not difficult at all.

I can only imagine what a meeting between her and Sly Cooper would be like...

Time to go out on a limb here, but to stave off the temptation to string me along and nock me off my pun-pedestal, I will take flight lest I get shafted.

She is one agile thieving feline beauty. :)

Has anyone in the party tried romancing her yet? Or has her response been to toss a rock in their general direction?
