Below is the preliminary sketch. I filled in the silhouette over this as a mask, and then let textured brushes do the rest of the work.
Rogue Archer Sketch by Wildweasel339

The bow is loosely based on a traditional Japanese design.   4.bp.blogspot.com/-lI59P4ddaCw…
It is consistent with the theme of asymmetrical balance that I was going for in the pose.

Hi! I really love this picture, you're a great artist! I am an archer and a bowyer, so this image is very significant to me. Would you make a version of this image with a bow that I made? I would love to buy the design to get a tattoo ^^

Really cool and dynamic. I love how her leg is lifted to kind of form a bow shape of its own. Great work!

Lovely.  I saw it in MJWilliam's favorites.  From the thumbnail I assumed it was a photograph of a bronze statue.

I like it even better this way.

The full-size version is stunning.

Brilliant sharp lines combine well here with the crayon look.

Really neat new style. Different from your typical work, but just as stunning.

Have you thought about doing several of these?  You have the archer (awesome, by the way), so now I think we'd need a swordsman, a fan-dancer, a pole-arm, all those kinds.  They'd look good as a simplistic japanese art collection!

That's an excellent idea! I just find myself with a shortage of time. Waaaah! 

Thanks!

So now that you've had a few years, ever think about returning to this and making it a series after all?
