Seeing as how I'm a big Tamora Pierce fan (gee, can you tell?) I really had to have the obligatory Alanna of Treebond picture (from the song of the Lioness series). She's probably the hardest character to draw, simply because she's supposed to be a girl who could masquerade as a boy. Most pictures show Alanna as a very feminine character, and my dear friend Heather took a different view of her. So this is my response, trying to make her somewhat boyish, but also feminine. And yee gads, I wouldn't want to mess with her. Done in watercolour pencils and pencil.
