"Naked, she was all bone and sinew, with barely a suggestion of hip and breast" from Gimmile'sSongs by Charles R Saunders in which she makes her first appearance. A great sotory, and you do her mofe than justice.
This is such a beautiful picture! I think that I've come back to view it more times than any other picture on the whole Deviant Art.
She looks like a Dahomey Amazon!
Gorgeous artwork. The colours, the lighting, the shading; a wonderful warm atmosphere in this painting.

Wow. I'm really lovin' your work. The idea of doing fantasy work that features people who aren't anglo is so obvious that it's ridiculous, yet so rarely seem. Bravo.
