This is a drawing I did of Alanna and her cat Faithful from the Tamora Pierce books. If you are familiar with the books, you would know that Alanna was a girl who disguised herself as a boy to become a knight. She revealed her true identity after she finally became one...obviously, this would be after she became a knight. The cat is her pet/side-kick, Faithful...it can talk. She's also somewhat of a mage...hence the purple fire around her. If you aren't familiar with the books...well, I just told you all about it. Anyways, the scanner really screwed up this one. Oh well.
