This is a character sketch of Saraya, she's quite a strange, magical creature who is very closely tied to nature. Her kind can take any form between fully human and fully animal and each of them has its own particular species. As you'd probably already guessed, Saraya's is the Cheetah. When fully in human form they can be recognised by a tattoo-like mark of their animal form somewhere on their body, for Saraya on her left side from the lowest rip down to the upper thigh. Their full animal form is usually distinct from a normal animal by being bigger and overall more powerful. These creatures are very playful and whimsical and it's hard to grab their attention for longer than a few seconds. If you do manage to get them to fight for you in battle though, they make formidable allies.Just a sketch in my favourite medium, graphite pencil, again. Sort of a gift for my boyfriend who likes his cat-girl companion in Oblivion (the computer game) a little too much ;P Hope you like it. I'll try to post her tattoo in my gallery as well. Saraya is copyrighted to me so please don't steal. Made February 2009.
