For me, it looks like Nico Robin learned some ninjutsu stuff. LEGIT!

The first though that came to my mind was that she's very simmilar to Nico Robin from One Piece. I love it, especially the eyes.

Your work is amazing, dear. ^^

I can't believe this only has 300 something favorites. Usually when you see something this nice it's has thousands. It's art like this that keeps me working hard and practicing so I'll someday be good enough to bring my artistic skill to this level.

This picture is absolutely gorgeous and has a cool kind of mood to it, I mean you can even see his breath because of how cold it is in the picture. I love it :D

I love the mystery in his face. Its like you don't know what he's going to do next. Beautiful shading and I love how the eyes look electrified =]

Very nice!
terminalcondition Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2007
This is slick - loving the atmosphere you have created here, your attention to detail with the clothing and yet another iconic image using the raven.

I signed in just to comment on this! The texture in this is BEAUTIFUL, and the colour...ah! It also has a very interesting composition; I like how everything doesn't immediately jump out at you all at once, because there are several aspects to this picture which call to be admired on their own, I think. <3 The fur on his jacket, I want to just reach into the monitor and run my fingers through it. Anyway, that was a bit long-winded. Great job! I'm definitely going to watch you now. :P

prismadragonfly Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2007
Oooh, I like this one a lot! Your attention to the detail in his hair and eyes are wonderful. His eyes look fierce. His hands look very nice to, you even gave him shiny fingernails. Usually I don't like animals put into drawings because a lot of artists can't pull it off, but you sure did! The faint breathe cloud was a great touch to, some arists seem to forget that.

Another fav!
Carolelyn Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2007
gaah :dies from the sexy look: that look rocks! love the eyes the most

You've been kickin so major ass here!
TriannaMaxwell Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2007
Is that the red string of fate? And is it connected to the raven? I can't help but jump into the symbolism of ravens as the spirits of the battle-dead.... whatever it is, this is a neat work. I love the twinkle in his eye!

loriya Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2006  Student Traditional Artist
I love how the eyes especially came out. When I draw that's sometines my problem. The eyes just sometimes don't seem right.
