I needed some time to finish the third pose, because I had some serious problems depicting this character. I wanted her to look fierce and not too young and a slightly little bit looney. Still I had to change the pose of one of the hands.

[EDIT]: I am really sorry. I forgot to give some characters information. But I felt honestly honoured some of you actually asked for more, so here it is:
Myrell Rahal Parsley is obviously not a human but an elve, which makes her stand out in a town full of humans. - As a very skilled sword-dancer and member of a formers adventurers group she managed to get inside the university of the rose of Elyvey to teach dancing and a lot of skills that are more commonly used by carneys. But since the university is quite costly, the students are mostly nobles who strive to use their skills at the court. - This is why her lessons are not as well attended as those of the other three principals of the guild (.... the four members are named: Parsley, Sage, Rosmary and Thyme, because this is one of my most favourite folk-songs)
She is Danjiels second-most favourite teacher and since he is also "exotic" Myrell thrives to give him some advise, because she feels the naive young man needs it badly.
She also teaches him the basics of how to use his rapier, which will be his signature-weapon much later.

Thanks for the additional background info. Seems I don't know this folk-song about herbs... :O

:-D Here you go! I love folk-songs and I feel this is a beautiful yet well known one. :-)

Beautyful - I didn't know that one - thanks! :)

You showed me that beautiful BlackmoresNight song once. Time for me to return my favour! :-)

I like your creative interpretation of the pose! And her facial expression definitely is fierce, I especially like how you drew the eyes, they have very interesting colouring. You described this character as "a bit loony" and the look of her eyes gives that impression really well! Actually the entire colour scheme is interesting and harmonious. I like the design of the outfit, it has a lot of interesting details.

I also would be interested to hear a bit more about this character and her role in your story : - )

Thanks so much! I feel like I might have already said that before, but I always try to bring a little twist to those poses, even if just a tiny one and I like the fact that you recognized that. :-) --- The colour scheme is honestly waaaaaaay different from what I usually do, but that's why I like her so much. --- Oh. And I edited the original post to give you some additional information. I was honestly happy that you and Pan mentioned it, so I could see someone is reading my pictures descriptions! :-)

Thank you for the information! It was interesting to read! And her title, "the sword dancer", sounds cool! It shows that she is both graceful and dangerous : - ) I think she had taught Drow a lot about both swordplay and dancing : - )

JuliaMersmann's avatar

HEhehe! Yeah! I wanted her to be the one teaching Drow about the beauty of being dangerous. Of course Drow is more like "the nice boy next door", but her teaching influenced him a lot into using his "being different" and the way people see him as a demon for a carrier. :-)

Sehr coole Herangehensweise, die Pose so für den Charakter abzuwandeln!

Beim Blick auf die Originalpose denkt man ja eher an irgend nen Magier, der gerade eine Energiekugel abschießt - aber die Waffe ist natürlich eine coole Alternative.

Mit den so stark hochgezogenen Augenbrauen wirkt sie ein wenig überheblich, als würde sie auf einen potentiellen Gegner/Trainingspartner hinabblicken.

Hey, dankeschön! :-) Ich versuche nach Möglichkeit und wenn es sich anbietet immer ein bisschen einen Twist für die DEJ-Posen zu finden. - Ich hatte mich bei dieser Pose erst etwas geärgert. Es gibt zwar sehr viele Magier in der Welt in der die Geschichte spielt, aber die Schlüsselcharaktere sind zum großteil nicht magisch begabt, oder ich habe sie schon gezeichnet. Aber da ich neue Charaktere malen wollte fand ich für eine Schwerttanzende Bardin ist die Pose gerade richtig. :-)

Can you tell us more about this character?

I like the modifiyed pose. :nod:

JuliaMersmann's avatar

Uh, I felt so honoured you and Plunder asked me to tell you more. I edited the post and gave some more information on her in the description! :-)
