This is a picture I drew for the... September, I think... Art Duel with the Evil Undead Ninjas. The theme was something about creative characters and/or elaborate costumes, and this is what came to mind.
Here we see Elethia, a character from a story I'm attempting to write, sadly examining a mark on the back of her neck. (It's a bit hard to tell, but it's actually a symbol, not just a pink blotch ^_^) The mark is a sign of being 'bonded' a spell used to sort of tie two people together, making it so they can always track each other down, among other things. There's really too much that I would have to explain for everyone to know what's going on, so I'll just simplify it-
She's bonded to the villain of the story and runs away in a desperate attempt to escape from his evil scheme. He tries to hunt her down, but while she's in hiding, she meets the hero of the story, who at first doesn't know she's bonded to this guy. Then he finds out and... things get complicated...
I'll leave it at that for now.
Done in Prismacolor pencils, using a photograph of me (which was taken in front of a mirror at a store in the mall) as a reference to get the pose and reflection right.
