This character is created by Laurel Biles, and it's my first art trade! I designed a new outfit, and I didn't realize until _after_ I scanned and uploaded the picture that I completely left out the wings! I'm very sorry! *-.- Well if you have questions about this character please ask Laurel. :)

kaiwen I think you mean "never ceases" hehe 12 because thats definately what her art does to me, never ceases to amaze me 2
this picture (and all of them) are awesome, I think you have a definite future in art if you choose to head in that direction. Not sure if the character is meant to be half black half white or if it is shadows, if it is shadows maybe around the chin, stomach, breast and nose the line could change a little (the bits that extrude would recieve more light to one side, making the midline at a different to on the bits more inside her like the neck etc) Otherwise this is really, really, really good. I wish I could draw manga as well as you ^_^ Thank you very much for the comment! The character isn't mine, but she was meant to be half dark and half light. Of course looking back at her gallery, the skin is one color! *cough* My bad. But I did try to add shading (very light shading as to not combine the dark/light sides) Thank you for the comment though 2 Soon I'll probably replace this picture with an updated version (that fixes the mistakes/adds wings!) Heh.

I see imp[rove ment with every picture, i cant wait to see more. This picture i think is my favorite. She has such charcter. Thank you Racheal, I feel privileged to have been able to do an art trade with Laurel Biles and draw her great character. It was most fun! In my next gallery update I'll have a hodgepodge of pictures, not a lot of color included, but it shows a wide range of different styles. I can't wait to scan them, eh.

*squeal* The half shaded, half line-art thing is SO COOL!!!! And you pulled it off so well! *_* I still think you draw very pretty hair, and such excellent faces! I rather like the folds on her cloak, too. Thank you! Faces and shading seem to be my strong point, so I'm very pleased you liked her hair and the cloak! Thank you very much for the kind comment. 2

Wow... this is a really nice piece of artwork. I love it. Great job shading! Thank you very much, I spent most of my time just shading so I'm extremely happy that turned out well. 2

That is so awesome, your shading is wonderful Thank you Brian, I love shading and sometimes spend too much time doing it heh, but I'm very pleased that you and others appreciate that part in a drawing. Especially in this picture where most of the time went into shading, so I'm thrilled to read this comment.

Neato...Even without wings! I like your works, they're very good
*evil demonic grin* hey...Would you do an art trade with me...If i ask reeeaaallly nicely? Of course! I never put down art trades or anything of the sort. (I probably can't get hold of a scanner, but I recently bought this camera..) Email me on what you want to draw/trade/etc, it's too hard for me to pick something. ;P

Coolios! I really like the half-dark, half-light effect. I like her hair a lot, too. 1Yea, I liked that idea too, it was very interesting. 2 And I'm glad you like her hair, thanks!
