I've never imagined her quite so 'thick.' She was a shadowdancer and they were chosen for grace and suppleness of movement. Mayhaps I'm mistaken. But then lots of SE's character appearances are really 'in the air' sorta. hehe

This painting depicts how I imagine her now, after having been a Red Blade for a while, battle-hardened and tough. Her grace and suppleness is still there, only more subtle :P

And yeah, you're right about that!

Just gorgeous! You've obviously put a lot of effort into this portrait. The lighting, her expression and bone structure are really impressive. I'd like to see a little more detail in her hair just to finish it off but sometimes enough is enough, I realise. I think this one is worth framing for the bedroom wall.

Wow, you've really been on a commenting spree:D I like it! It's good to have you back:)

Thank you! :hug:

I'm really happy with this one, think it turned out pretty good. I just hope my next one will meet the new standard I've set for myself:D

lol I really have. I was just struck by this sudden energy to plow through my deviation stacks and share the love. You've been on my watch list for years too so I definitely wanted to tackle yours. :D At any rate, you're welcome! :heart:

Beautiful eyes... But hasn't she got blue eyes? I don't remember exactly...
Tattersail's avatar
I'm not sure, actually. But I always paint blue eyes with dark skin, so I decided to try something else:)
