Defiance by liiga Defiance by liiga
A personal painting for a change. (Last one was in August, wtf.)

The dialogue between these two would go something like this, if anyone was around to hear it:
"It is your time to go, please step off the scythe so I can collect you."
"Nnnnnnnnnno."

Had a lot of fun with this. The scythe even got a name - Weeping Wind. 'Cause there's a sort of squiggle on the blade that makes it look a bit like a face. Also, she's not naked. She's merely wearing Spirit Spandex. It's all the rage in the spirit world, you know.

And yes, the title is one hyphen short of a horrible pun. Keke.

Wacom Intuos 3, Corel Painter 9, not particularly long, but too scattered over a few months to tell.

No you may not use it for derivative works, trace it, put it on a sandwich etc. etc. May be reposted for as long as my name and a link back to my gallery are provided along with the image in a clear fashion.

Definitely one of the better dark elves I've seen out here on dA, and as we all know there's an awful lot of drow around so that's got to count for something...!

Are you a R.A.Salvatore fan?
I'm reading his "War of the Spider Queen" and this looks like it could belong to one particular scene in the series.
Definitely beats the pants off the cover art anyway.

I think Venus Williams was wearing some spirit spandex at the Australian Open recently. You always concentrate so much on details in your work and I appreciate that even if I can't see it that well at this size. This piece is much too dark for my preference but it does not mean that it isn't impressive.
