A labor of love and sorta hate. This is a portfolio piece I've done for school as well as part of a pitch for a Bioware assignment in which we have to make concepts for a fake video game.

Thanks to all my friends and classmates for helping me on this pic, and putting up with my constant nagging and bitching.

Edit: The shop is officially back up now!

That is my dream; concept art. Only... selfishly for myself. P: 
Haha, there aren't very many are there? Not very- well thought out ones atleast; they usually are made I think based on the ideals of certain pervs. Its like, where's the real story? who is she? And why should she be awesome and why should I care?

Mulan. She is the only epic female character I can think of. 
However, there are many books I've read with strong female leads...
Dragon Spell, and... Dragon's Milk. Two different series... but very interesting to read.
Nah, we'll create epic heroine's ourselves.

Have i commented on this? i don't know, if i have then you get two comments. i'm not a gamer but i would be intrigued by a game with a sweet as hell herd of death-elks controlled by amazing forest lady. Or i would at least look at fanart of it like i already do with TF2.

Gorgeous, gorgeous work. Beautiful details and ambiance, and you did a good job of making her the focal point without putting her in the foreground of the image.

I don't quite agree with you (and I'm female), but more importantly this looks really amazing. Not sure how riding a stag would be doable in a game but I'd love to see it. Would love to have this as a print too.

I like the sense of motion i get when I look at this piece. You immediately hear hooves stomping and chaos ensues........... I really dig your character style as well as the atmosphere. This one has it ALL!!!

It's really elegant as the silhouette and of the young woman and the deers stand out against the clarity. The work on the light is impressive. It tempts to play it.
