My Inspiration for this came from my desire to draw something for one of my RP characters on GR.  I already had a character claim (Watching Walkers, characters who have a certain precognitive/retrocognitive/etc ability) and I knew what species (sub species actually) I wanted to do.  And I thought about it, thought about how I wanted to formulate this character and frame her, and I knew I wanted her to have pale white eyes.  And you just can't really find that kind of thing unless you draw it yourself.  So I drew her.  And as you can see up above, the only alterations I made that are digital are once again the background colours.  Otherwise, the original sketch is pretty much the original.  She has antlers (an illusion, since her real antlers are larger and more complex to accommodate her true age) and the clothes that she wears are loose and flowy.  Particularly, she wears a series of belts on her, they mark the history she sees and are the ties that restrain her thought.  They remind her of the face that she will and can only ever be plagued by the past.  The is one personal critic I have on this, and that is, her hands are too small! It seems I didn't consider the proportions very well when I drew her.

The brushes for the side (a thing I added on random and don't know if I entirely like) are Starwalt Design brushes.
