This is Lainnir, one of my LARP characters. Her name is Scottish Gaelic for 'Falcon', for obvious reasons. She is a falconer, archer elfling and she rides a Shire (note the britches). This piece was done over the course of three days, with intensive work, and I'm very proud of it. A lot of credit must be given, however, to a gentleman named Hian H. Rodriguez, who greatly influenced this piece, as it started as merely a study of one of his pieces. Oh, and a comment about her falcon: yes, I know she's much too heavily built to be a falcon, but this is fantasy. In actuality, I needed a reference and I used a goshawk and changed the markings. But I like the results, and even though she'd never be a good stooper, she could certainly be a good fighting bird. Her name is Puithar--Gaelic for 'sister'-- and the aforementioned horse is named Comhalta ('brother').
