Judge of Karma by Blind-Leviathan Judge of Karma by Blind-Leviathan
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!

I may be biased because I love both drow and purple colour, butthat picture is still amazing - the level of detail... everything! I love the folds and the details on her outfit - especially those feathers at her belt.

Hehe! Thanks on both comments, some of the artists I really admire have done work for drowtales. But I can't say I've taken the time to read any of the comics. I really should! It has some really stunning art!

I LOVE the texturing and 3D-like POP to her outfit! The depth to this image is amazing! And all those details in her outfit?! @.@ Damn girly! Amazing! I like how the "strings" almost resemble a spider like web, considering the fact she's a drow, without being an outright web just like that. She looks almost smug with the appearance of cool confidence and poise to her. And beautiful as always! Very very gorgeous darling!

I love Antha for all her quirks. For all her not drow nature - when you think about it, her jobs ability to dictate the fate of others is kinda drow. At least she does it for a good cause!

she's definitely a very interesting character that's for certain! And indeed, there are...subtle drowish hints to some of her nature but she's hardly a typical drowess. I always love how incredibly beautiful you guys depict her too!
