This is Nezrael, she is a half Elf, half Hezsian from my fantacy story 'Nevermore'. She was raised by the Hezsian and has taken more than a few of there charicter trates, shes as fine a warrior as any Hezsian ought to be, but shes terribly wheckless and ofthen thought to be totally insain. Getting into more trouble than she can fight her way out of is pritty much the norm' for her. Not that she cares, her life seems to mean little to her when measured against the opertunity to kill a lot of Wareck soldiers. Her Brother Draven is constantly vexed with having to bail her out of one problem or another, often at considerable cost to himself. But such is the Madness of his dear little Nezrael, he wouldnt have it any other way.

This Picture was tough to darw, it was not easy to the the face just right, I was going for a preditor look rather than the cute sweet look often affiiated with the animee style. I thin I hit my mark quite well in this case. The bigger challenge however was inking it, it has a lot of detail in the hair, it took a while. I find you have to be very careful when inking women, one line too thick and dark and you lose the feminine appearance. the same goes for coloring, so this picture was slow in the making.

This is very good and I love the way you did her hair.

:-) Michael J Routley replies: "I’m really glad to hear that, it took hours and hours to get it right, it even survived the inking and coloring. which is a nerve racking process."

I’ve bent my rules as an artist for this piece and did a photo shop correction. I just didn’t like the forarms being such a mess.

I see the Manga influence in this one, but it’s always better in cases like this to have your own take on it and go from there. In that sense, I think you were successful.

:-) Michael J Routley replies: "Yes anime magna has a strong influence on my art, but I still let my own style rule, I never directly adopt a new style of art, without mixing it with my own. "

Another awesome piece!

:-) Michael J Routley replies: "I’m glad you like it, this one seems to get overlooked frequently, yet its one of my favorites. I intend to do another piece with her in it, but havnt had a good idea for a kill move just yet."

i think that the thumbs are in the right place for the action of the sword hands

:-) Michael J Routley replies: "Yes I believe they are in the correct position. I’ve been doing this too long to mess up on that. 1"

I am mystified by the hair . . .

:-) Michael J Routley replies: "Thanks, I spent a good amout of time on it. its an old picture but I still love it. I’m posting in Deveiant art now, this gallery hasnt got any of my new stuff. though i really ought to start adding to it again. "
