I love how clearly you (and your commission-er, I assume) use specific details to make this a particular person, not just a general type; she's clearly not some generic mage illo for a new roleplaying book.

I'm particularly intrigued by the contrast between the softer colors/textures of her face, hair, and robe, and the sharper/deeper/richer shades of her gear--the bold solid bronze/brown of leather and wood and antler hilt, the tempered green of her pouch, and the bold solidity of her beads--the kind of beads we associate with the ancient past and/or the poor, rather than the glittery gems of a high lady's court display.

I'm still musing on that striking color contrast of her & dress vs. gear; if you were a bad artist and I was in a grumpy mood, I'd probably think it was a bad combination, but instead it adds a particular energy to the picture, as if she were a creature of the misty moors whose--hmm--duties focus her into the specific times and places she is needed.

Brilliantly done!

Thanks for the feedback, the commission was very specific with the look, items and clothing as it's a game character. I always enjoy bringing the textures and and overall character together, hopefully hitting what's in the imagination of the commissioner. While painting her I had a similar feeling of her being slightly ephemeral, hence the nod towards this in the background. 

Thanks again for the comment, always appreciated.

Oh, I did assume the details were the commissioner's, but it's the work you made of them that caught my eye, and that etherial vs. solid contrast most of all.
