An old pic that sat around unfinished for the longest time. Inspired by this awesome pose (the bottom one) by *fevereon: [link]

I had some trouble with the foreshortening on this. :p The usual, start to finish in photoshop.

This has inspired a character, that has been bouncing around in my head for ages. I finally put it into words, base on the world of "The Exalted" pen and paper, rpg. Aressa

I love the sense of motion in this, and the expression is wonderful. You can tell she's greatly enjoying this and she finds it entirely effortless, which gives the entire image a bit of some dissonance, since she appears so serene and relaxed, while actually performing something quite deadly. Great job!

OMG WOW. I still get surprized by how amazing of an artist u are. Wow this is just so awesome! Its so beautiful & flavored with action. Its elegant, energetic, striking......I could go on.
I just LOVE how u made the swords blur to imply speed, & the whirling shape of her garments & hair as shes spinning just make it so much more awesome.

Oh wow. The flow of this piece is amazing. The dance pose of the character together with the movement of the hair weapon and dress are incredibly beautiful.

I totally love your style :love:

this is a fine example of full viewing as mandatory... when I first opened it I was confused, then I looked at it properly and was quite pleased. Lovely perspective and movement. Nicely done.
