Wow..ok, so years ago (back in the 90's), I rp'd a female bard named Pandora. She was more than just a character, she represented my feminine side (I'm genderqueer) and was my way of expressing that side of me in a 'safe' environment. I swear, this looks exactly like I imagined her looking. I burst into tears when I first saw this, because that character has meant SO much to me over the last twenty years or so since I first created her. 

I just want to compliment you on your amazing art..and to thank you for bringing her to life. I know it's not what you set out to do, and I'm in no way claiming this is 'my' character..but as far as ghosts go, your art has stirred an old friend and given me reason to revisit some wonderful memories. 

Thank you...and best of luck with your art, and all the best to you and yours.

May all your arrows find their mark,
And may all your notes be true.
May your muse light never go dark,
May their voice oft speak to you. 

May all your colors never run,
And inkwell never tip.
May your works sold always sell,
And canvas never rip.

Most of all, fare thee well,
May good health be your dressing.
May serendipity with you always dwell,
And love be a constant blessing.

ahhhhh...reminds me of me home back north in Several Winter! ;)
Perfect! Congrats
looks great, nice to have some strong women who don't look like they're pinup girls
I really like this one, and Kajehase's suggestions would make good adds. I especially like that it isn't the trope "sexy" version, but doesn't go completely "berserker" either. It shouldn't look "I can't get nice clothes" but more "In my homeland we live with what we get".
Nice design, and although as a real-world northlander I'd maybe want the outermost garment to have been a bit less tight-fitting, I gotta say I really like the look of it. Feminine without even getting close to cheesecake or worse, and the details all look right. (Might have been nice with some "wolftooth-buttons" somewhere on it, but that's just me starting to overthink things.)
