Thank you :) There was a backstory for this once. Maybe I'll type it up, hehe

Do that, if it's a fun and inspiring idea. =)

Thanks :) Did this with ink and quill back in 1996-97 while participating in a musical (school production of FAME) Being one of the actors, there were long periods of down-time and little to do.

Mmm.. doesn't she smell nice!! :sneeze:

I remember this picture as an image that got stuck in my mind cuase of the book I was currently reading, while I saw this for the first time in your gallery. heh.. one of the first books in "Isfolket" there's an highly respected shaman (well dah) who's really capturing.
Tho u never read it, I always think of her looking like this. :psychotic:

Aaaanyway, she totally rocks. The ornaments and bold shadowing makes this pic brilliant.

Very very nice.. love the face.. however.. I think the hair could use a little more variation in value.. more highlights or something.. to distinguish it from the cloak/clothing..

:heart: Lovely work though..
