I've been using this picture of yours as my tabletop RPG character illustration for awhile, but i would like to say from now that i'm doing it with your permission (for this specific non profit purpose, of course) if you don't mind ^^
I love your drawing, by the way, if it's not obvious for i had chosen it. As others have said, the girl is cool because she's convincing and you don't made her skinny and/or busty as others always done. My character is overweighted (a little more than the picture), a wizard and a dragon slave since she was a child, then you can see it fits almost perfectly.
I'll give credits and also put a link to your deviant and tumblr in my character sheet. So i have your permission?
And I love your gift for textures and aging - worn cloak, leathers creased by use, metals that are dull from years of scratches (and maybe deliberate muting for camouflage) rather than being shiny chrome, and the way her spell's power shows in shifting clouds rather than a generic glow, blue flames, or or lightning ziggles. Hell, even her hair doesn't look like she washed it to a nice shampoo shine just before battle. She isn't a cute pinup; she's a veteran who knows exactly what she's doing, and you make her world real from her detailing alone.
(Myself, I'll admit I've mostly seen enough redheads in fantasy for a while, but you draw 'em well.)
wonderful composition! like the cover of a book i also appreciate that your female character isn't a barbie doll. she looks real because she has a realistic waistline and and hips! and she dresses appropriately for dragon-hunting. no chain-mail bikinis to be seen! yaaaaay!
