Commissioned for :iconchime-elf: of her original character Tory.

A personal favourite of mine. It was quite time consuming (and it took me a long time to design the dress) but over all I'm very happy with the outcome. I was told that the character must earn the eight elements and Chime-Elf particularly wanted a picture of her with the element of 'light'. This was a bit of a challenge to portray, but I knew I had to do something with the light spectrum and crystals... it ended up as you see it now.

A Bit about the character: Tory is a typical high school girl (17 years old) who gets transported into the fantasy world of Aerth (a world like Final Fantasy X/XII/XIII). She is Chosen to earn the eight elements, and use them to save their world.

Please No Critique Desired !!!
