The daughter of a decorated warrior and an imperial courtier. She has many talents in many fields. Beautiful, deadly with a sword, and possessing a keen mind...but she is discontent with her lot. Feeling unchallenged, she seeks out greater and more dangerous tests of her ability to prove her worth to herself. Ultimately, it may be her undoing.

Great. Very good indeed.

The face and hands are very well executed, and, though it does not follow in the vein that my work does, I must say that I am rather impressed with your drawings. Just a note toward improving future drawings, though, this one's shoulders and torso seem just a little small for the head and hands. Perhaps it has something to do with the odd angle of attack, though your others don't seem to really have the same problem. *shrugging* It's a minor thing, really, and I can't criticize much, because almost all my humanoids have problems with some part of their body being unworkable anatomically. *patting the good ol' copy of Gray's* My humans still need work.

Keep up the good work, and particularly that that involves one of the greatest game systems ever to come down the pike, L5R First Ed.

As far as the proportions go, she is a young Asian girl, after all (actually, she's about 16). And what's this about an angle of attack? What attack?

She looks like Zhang Ziyi from Crouching Tiger,Hidden Dragon???

Looks fantastic. I love the way the wind makes those threads move...Very beautiful, well done.

I like the serenity of it. One observation, though... it might be only me but the positioning of her right hand and wrist seems to be somewhat... off. My hand at least would hurt a bit...

Once again, you have done a beautiful job on the hair and the wrinkles in the fabric. And the texture on the blade is BEAUTIFUL!

After having looked through your side I have come to believe that this is one of your best. The detail to the clothing, her expression and particularly her hands is positively lovely. Great work, I hope to see more.

how do you draw such beautiful people!?! It's not fair, I tell you! Not Fair!

Wow she is very dreamy, one can almost feel a sense of longing in her eyes. Of course, this could just be wishful thinking on my part. I did lose the sword against her sleeve so some more defined lines in that regards would be a good idea. Well done.

:-) Sean C. Riley replies: "Quite right. I really need to re-scan this and touch it up a bit. It suffered from a bad scan, as well as being a fairly light picturei n the first place. Once I get my hands on a working scanner, I'll see what I can do."

Wow she's lovely. I love the way her hands are sort of twined around each other, it makes it look so romantic!
