Windswept Beauty by staino Windswept Beauty by staino
This image has gone through some changes during the design process. Early on she was an elf with short light colored hair. The head was tilted and the face completely different. Her consume had no contrasting elements and the leather was studded. I was not pleased so I gave her a new face with regal windswept hair. The unusual rock shapes were probably formed at the seaside and I imagine her standing at the edge of a beach facing off against assassins. From the look of her I would say she is a mix of ranger and rogue. I have some story ideas for her but they are not fleshed out enough to share them with you in great detail. I can say it is discovered that she is the right full heir to the throne and the current king is looking to get rid of her because of the threat she poses to his power. Sometimes I will have a story idea and I will design a character for it. Other times, like this, I will cerate the character first and then decide who and what they are afterward.
The original drawing is around 11 inches tall and 9 inches wide.

I suppose I like girls with sword too. :laughing: I'm not sure I got the proportions of her body right on this one but folks seem to like it. The funnest part to draw was the hair.

i dunno if the proportions are realistic - but they look fine to me ;) I can imagine your hairy worries...it is a very difficult thing to get them right & dynamic
