I KEEL YOU! RAWR

OMFG... This picture just about KILLED ME... XD
I've run out of steam... I can't do anymore! ;__;
*SIGH* I'd like to touch up a couple of details, but i'm drawing the line here. I got other things to do! >D

Anyway! I had some time to myself in between commission stuff and decided to a fanart of Nariko from Heavenly Sword. Who is just.... UH *drool* She has the most impractical hair and sword ever!!! but still... :drool:
I think she's a great character and althought I really want to STAB this damned picture... She was fun to work on!

I think this took around 25 hours!? Probably longer @_@
Sketched traditionally, Photoshop CS2.

Nariko, Heavenly Sword™ ©2006-2007 Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.

THIS PICTURE IS TRUELY AMAZEING I FEEL IN LOVE WITH IT. I ALSO LOVE IT BECAUSE SHE KINDA LOOKS LIKE JESSICA ALBA AND SHE IS BEUTIFUL. I HOPW THEY MAKE THIS A MOVIE AND PUT THIS AS THEIR POSTER. AND JESSICA ALBA SHOULD BE NORIKO.

This is really well done, I can't believe you did this using CS2 and then I saw you posted it in 2007 lol Her hair is beautiful, what brush or brushes did you use?
