My part of an art trade with Pearl A. Hodges.

Verdego is the daughter of a dragon shape-shifter and a Sorceress, she is imortal and has had a few different aperances over the years. This is the form where she looks just like a human, part from the wings and tail.

This was really fun to draw (even though she has wings, lol) beacuse all my recuests and art trades lately have involved long extravagant dresses. And even though I found those very amusing to draw one can tire of doing them all the time.

Verdego is the creation of Pearl A. Hodges.

Mmmh.. Gorgeous armor.. The color and design of it makes me wish I had it. Not that it'd suit me at all but it might look nice sitting around someplace.. *grin* Ach. I'll admit I'm envious.

I'm glad you like it too, thanks for the comment. "

Like it a lot. Her hair is cool and she looks rely tough. Nice job.

:-) Annika Freyah Nilsen replies: "Yes, this was draw in my "long flowing hair"-period, any length of hair not at least kneelength made me unhappy. *LOL*
I think this is the last of those kind of images in my Loth gallery... *nostalgic*"

Sorey for the misspels I have dyslexy, and writing is a nitmar.

2 Annika Freyah Nilsen replies: "Well, you're perfectly right of course. Studying an object closely will certanly make the practising a lot easier. Because I do belive one has to practise a lot.
You must be quite a natural artist if you can just studying somethning and then draw it flawlessly. ^_^
Lucky for me I quite enjoy practising drawing things (even though I complain when things go wrong). And that is what it's all about, for me anyways, having fun when drawing.
Thank you for your commnet and advice!"

I find your idea most curious and beautiful. I would like to see some more of your work. This one is quite unique. Keep it up.

:-) Annika Freyah Nilsen replies: "Thanks, I'm really glad you like it. ^_^
See more of my work? You mean you went through my entire gallery??? *impressed with your patience*
Eh, in that case...I don't know what to say, I keep my best stuff here in the woods, the things I want people to see, the rest of it I hide under my bed. ^_~"

This is definitely, by far, some of the best armor for girls that I've seen in a heckuva long time!

Thankyou for keeping everything "tucked in".


Luverly job!

1 Annika Freyah Nilsen replies: "HAHAHA, well, I do try. Personally I don't mind a little skin showing here and there but I'm also a follower of less is more. It's not a matter of how _much_ skin is showing, is's about _what_ skin is showing. ^_^
Also, I have no problems with nudity, but you can't kid me into believing a half naked woman is capable of beinga serious warrior.
That's just my opinion, right now, and I'm totally ok with anybody else thinking otherwise. ^_^"

I like your pics, but why are they pissed off or sad. You must of had something bad hapen to you for your pics to thern up that way. If nething bad happend to you then cheer up. I do like your pics just don't be so depressing.

16 Annika Freyah Nilsen replies: "  Huh? I don't think all my characters look pissed or sad. This particular one I got the impression se wasn't very cheerful to begin with. In other I just don't think it's fitting for the to grim like maniacs.
I'm sorry you got the impression that I'm depressing but if that's how you feel I recomend not to look at anymore of my images. Ok?"

Your pic is great, despite the fact that her hair reminded me of Madusa. Great! ^_^

:-) Annika Freyah Nilsen replies: "HAHAHAHA, awwww, you think her hair looks like snakes? Oh well, I'll blame that on the fact that this image is so old and declare that I've gotten better (I hope). ^_^"
