Although her sword would speak otherwise, Rinalliah is quite the quiet elf. She would be called diplomatic by many, never one to lead, but very trusting to have at your back, quick with her magic, quicker yet with her sword, and yet not prone to uncalled for slayings. Her sword is quite magical, as it has bonded within itself a pseudo-dragon. She is what we would call a wizard elf, and quite near becoming a Bladesinger, one who is quite adept at intertwining a spell with the sweep of steel. This piece was a commisioned drawing.

Hey I have to ask. You do know what the knot designs mean right?

They symbolize two things. 1. That heart, mind, and spirit are all connected and 2. that all life is one inter-connected spiritual quest. I am sorry for given lessons here but I am really getting sick of people using this type of designs without knowing their meaning. Especially since it is such a big part of my me and my heritage.

:-) Stuart Gormley replies: "I am from Ireland, born there to be precise. The knotwork has been a massive part of my countries heritage for countless years. You never mentioned where you are from, but I can tell the knot work has a lot of meaning to you, as it does to myself. Aside from its true meanings, I find the celtic knots beautiful in their own right, and are an integral part of my fantasy based work."

this is an excellant piece on so many levels.. i particularly like the shadinf and pose of the figure you have really captured her in mid stance just before what it appears to be that she will throw the fire at her assailant! the flow of lines and material are wonderfully fluid and i love the celtic knotwork... i have noticed on many of your p=ieces the triskal is used frequently! being of irish decent i too love all things celtic... i am a fan of Brian Boru in particular and have drawn a tribute to him... your pencil art i think is exemplary! keep up the outstanding work!

Oh my...She is so realistic!!! Damn she is beautiful! (And I am not a gay woman either) it's just that watermelon breasts get so OLD, and it's nice to see an artist with a real eye and real interest in what real women look like...sniff...Thank you

A beautiful piece! It's not that I have anything against large breasts, but there is such a shortage of art featuring small-chested women! Hurray for someone with a body type more like mine (lacking curves)! I love the swirly flame she's holding and it's cool that her hair isn't perfect and shiny. It looks like she's been roughing it out in the wilderness and hasn't had time to preen (she still looks pretty though). I also like her distant expression. It looks like she has a lot on her mind. Again, great work!

LOVE IT!!! ecspecially the pose. Maybe next time you draw the pose you could put the tip of the sword on the ground. and like Tatharwen said, Hurray for the lack of curves(like me!) ^_^
