Ah, where to start… This will probably be one of my more memorable commissions for a couple different reasons. First off, this picture marks my very first repeat customer ( *XullraeZauviir ). Secondly, it was commissioned by one person as a present for someone else. I’ve never had anyone give my art as a gift before and it’s totally flattering that anyone would even think about doing something like that. It totally made my week, and I was more than happy to do this. Enough of my blubbering though, on to the details!

This picture was commissioned by *XullraeZauviir but the character belongs completely to *CrypticStar. I truly hope all parties involved in this picture are happy with how it turned out. It was a little difficult to do because I had so little to go on and we couldn’t consult *CrypticStar because (as I understand it) this was to be a surprise for her. I wasn’t sure about the characters personality really, so I don’t know if the pose or background fits her. Especially that background, I’m thinking it might portray her a little more darkly than she is, but I don’t know for certain. I had little to go on for her clothing as well and after getting some suggestions from *XullraeZauviir (which hinted at something with an Aeon Flux feel to it), I pulled this costume out of my ass. I wanted to include her crossbow, but realized I had never drawn one before. After a few bad attempts to draw one, I decided it was better to exclude the weapon from the picture. ^^; I really enjoyed doing the hair though. I’ve never drawn hair up in buns like this before. It was kinda fun!

I hope all parties involved are happy with the end result though! Thanks again for being such an all-around awesome person *XullraeZauviir!

I really lurve how well coloring on the leather garb turned. And a nicely balanced background too. If it were busier it would've just thrown the whole thing off :eyepopping:

I'll be honest the boobs bother me for some reason :hmm:

Eh, sorry the boobs bother you (for whatever reason), but I don't like crits on my commissioned pieces (as is stated in the pictures description and in the comment box).

I'm not trying to be mean or anything but since the piece has already been approved and paid for by the customer, I just don't like people picking it apart.

:heart::heart::heart:LOVE IT!:heart::heart::heart:

She turned out perfect! Amara started off as a EVIL assassin sent to kill the party she traveled with which ended up converting her to the ways of good. She retired as a Void Incarnate and just as sexy as before!

I love the double buns! You did great with her hair! The outfit is GREAT! :w00t!: Amara would have worn it in a heart beat ;) Amara tends to come off as dark any way and she likes it that way. :D Excellent piece!

THANKS SO MUCH TO MY DEAR SWEET XullraeZauviir and to the very talented DarrkestDrow!:worship: :blowkiss:
