'I live in a world of fire and sand, where blistering heat is the companion of nights long and cold, where fear-filled darkness rules the night...' - The Wanderer's Journal. Okay, this picture is a complete departure from my normal anime style. It's a portrait of a character I made for a Dark Sun game, and anime just didn't seem right. This has to be the first time in a long time that I've drawn anything meant to look realistic, and the first time since the Animal Twins picture that I've done something with pencil shading. Akana is a half-elf Psychic Warrior and an ex-gladiator. She is wearing Chitin armor and weilding a Lotulis (though I forgot to draw the barbs).
