Ala unclad .. by Presteza Ala unclad .. by Presteza
the purpose of this scrappy collage is for artist's reference of Alacrity's torso.

yes, she pushes the extremes of human parameters;
but in fantasy or scifi worlds, Ala is not quite human (eg some hybrid of pixy, elf or alien)

Alacrity is supposed to be petite ~ small bewbs~! (well, normal is ok .. just not her most imposing feature), an elfin but muscly torso - shiny set of abs please~! of course when she is clothed that won't matter much, but if unclad that's one of her distinctive features.
[Ala's muscles aren't big, they are just very defined. For those artists who don't like to draw women with abs, I'd prefer she be drawn clothed or from different angles.]
Her limbs are not as powerfully developed, but still lean and ropy ~ Alacrity is built for speed & agility more than strength.
Her hands and feet are tough and callused (but still a woman's hands) - she can kill with them, not to mention perform all those acrobatics she enjoys.
*If I had to choose, I'd prefer a pixylike Ala than one who's capable of killing you with her bare hands .. of course a combination of both is ideal.
[ie, Alacrity is meant to be ripped .. but trim & lithe, NOT bulky. Or you can just paint her well-covered]

At first glance, or from a distance, Alacrity might be taken for a dainty little girl.
But on closer look, she more resembles the tiny ferocious predator she is.

*screenshots are of Alacrity in ArenaNet's GuildWars (nekky here, normally wears more clothing~!), though Alacrity's concept existed way before then ..

thanks, I only wish the dolls showed more expression~!
.. but that's where art comes in :}

True... besides, Ala looks best in that facial expression where she exudes silent calmness and beauty!

I often ask artists to make her look characteristically capricious, but actually some of her best portraits show her looking fearsome, like your own "Alacrity's Ready" [link]

I'm glad I didn't specify any expressions for her then, the effect would have been spoiled with a smile, everything came out perfectly~!
