Done for the :iconlolth-scourge: Mini-contest - Drow with Unusual jobs. Also for my own enjoyment. I liked the picture and wanted to flesh it out as far as I could to make a new main portfolio picture.

For a drow, Antha Taulka is just odd period. Her job is as a Judge of Karma, which is pretty much the same as saying she's a Judge of the Supreme Court.

Her title in particular is given to the member of the monastery she was raised in, who is thought to be the wisest and most neutral in all things. Usually this is a male Southern Elf. But from a young age it seemed that the Antha was very attuned to the ebb and flow of the strings of karma and she has always been good at what she does.

Ever so often, she gets called in to precede over cases and disputes and when she's in port will offer to act as an administrator for minor cases. She's well known as being utterly fair and completely unbiased in her rulings; always calm and cold in her mannerisms.

Then when she's going from port to port she plays Quartermaster to the Enoch, the ship that she travels with. Her life is one big law and order story.

I got some great arm posing ref from the awesome *mjranum-stock [link]

A very beautiful piece of work!  Love the color and detail of her robes of office, the scales in her hand to show she maintains the balance of judgment, and the wheel of judgment carved on the wall behind her. And how she holds the strands of disorder in her other hand to show that all judgment must come to her.  Well done!
