This is about half of the image, with glass/metal breastplate, dragon katar dagger, and a partial dragon body tattoo. I have added a bluish hue to the image (I like the tone it gives). I still plan on putting a glass vambrace on the arm that is left to draw, adding a long braid intertwined with a ribbon, making the second dragon katar dagger, and finishing up the bottom half of the body, with boots and all. My thanks to Karl Lines for not telling me how to draw glass! *LOL* I apologize for the scan lines, but this image is huge, and it took seven pieces to form the image you see before you. I was hoping to making an image good enough to actually send to Blizzard or some other gaming company, on the hopes they'll give me a shot as a concept artist. Guess I'll try with another image. Oh, well.....

GULP...Sir Richard, Master, Sir, um..."I'm going back to the kitchen to learn how to cook all over again"..."it would be easier for me to break into Coca Cola's main office and steal the secret formula than to learn how the hell he does this"...

Oooh. I love that tattoo! It's very haunting. And of what she's wearing (heh) is cool, I like the thing around her throat, and what..is that part of a cloak or something? Hmm. It's neat, yup. Her hair is very nice, and I love the hand! That tattoo is the greatest though. I would say that this looks great so far! ^_^

Wow, there is something seductive about the twisty turney sharpness of the metal, which you have conveyed very well. also, you are brilliant at faces.

I am truly beginning to despise your pure talent. Please, i nearly beg of you, tell me you went to college for this? For if not, then i truly have no hope as an artist. *whimpers*
But putting my self pitty aside, the work is brilliant.

She's trying to trick us! She isn't wearing a bra at all, just some body paint over a Dragon tattoo. Sneaky assassin - she thought she could fool us. I dare her to come over here and try that, I, no, wait, I was just kiddaaaaaaaagh...
