I usually draw (horribly) characters' knives/such over their left or right breast (anatomically speaking, not the baby feeders), depending on their handedness, the handle pointed down. Just for ease of access.

Beautiful work. I'm actually quite jealous. Though most of my characters (in NWN1/2, D&D, or elsewhere like in books) are male, if I could draw even women like this, with variation of course, as I would not copy, I would be pleased. Not to mention that one of my OC's, Sir Tegid Tathal (Half-elf bard), is having a romance in the paper/pencil D&D with another character, another OC (my own, admittedly) by the name of Elena. I've already (crudely) drawn "Teggie" as he is known by my mates, but since curves (especially... female curves) are my bane, Elena remains in my head alone.

But I've ranted long enough. Great work, I truly admire (and envy) your skill! Definitely watching you; love the style, and the fact that you rarely (if ever, haven't seen any yet) draw in full colour adds to the awesomeness factor!

This is so cool! Did you do this in graphite or in ink? I can't tell. Its so cool! And, since this is a fantasy picture, no one has a right to dog the bow or arrow, because, in a fantasy, anything goes! XD

What a brilliant picture !! Her look is incredible and I strongly agree with Curuba's comment about her pose. The clothes are great too.
I can't understand why so many people complained about the bow and arrow... they just look fine and I'd even say that considering her pose, she doesn't have many choices on how using her bow ^^; That works out well IMO.
Anyway, very impressive picture, congrats :clap:

I'm afraid this'll sound nerdy, but for all the people complaining about how the bow is drawn:
It actually IS possible to do it this way and concerning the way she is sitting, it's the only way to hold a bow for a short-ranged shot if you don't want to get the bow's tips deep into the snow (which would be horrible for bow and string likewise if they're made from natural materials like tendons and wood without varnish or speed glass fibre toppings).
And stop complaining: It works! As a bowhunter, one can be forced to shoot this way when crouching.
But enough of being nerdy.
I really like the way you managed to make her pose look like it was captured in action. It looks like she just ran close and fell to her knees to finish her prey off in a close-distance shot.
Also the perspective of bow and arrow turned out really nice accordning with her pose, slightly bend over and head tilted for aiming.
The picture really delivers Is as what she is: an archer. For as a traditional archer myself I get the feeling she is really serious about her business.

Wow :XD: Thank you for so BIG and nice comment XDDD
Honestly :whisper: I have a bow and an arrow(sham, but the size of observed) in the real life, I used a photo of myself as a reference. That's why I rrrreally enjoy when people say the arrow is too short or it's impossible to do this and this. I could do it somehow, so everything you see here is possible :XD:
But people always love to show how 'smart' they are :XD:

Curuba Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2012   Writer
Well, that is how people's minds work, I think.
But really, as I read those comments I got up to get my bow (which is just some metres away) and tried it, just to be sure. It is absolutely possible.
And in your picture the whole composition looks just perfectly fine. =) Maybe some people are not happy if they can't complain?
No need to thank me though, I really enjoy your art every time it pops up in my message box. Keep on, you're a wonderful artist! =)

of course and should the arrow with the mist be a little bigger? I am just suggesting so please refrain from being so crude about your answering =3 All in all I think that it is very well done just the arrow look a little small that is all, no biggie :)

As a headsup, in traditional archer form, the string hand draws back with the palm towards the face ([link] An Olympic archer), as opposed to away from the face, as you have it drawn here. Its a rather awkward way to draw the bow. Usually one would draw to their face, so one could look down the shaft of the arrow to aim, but that's just being even more knit-picky.

Otherwise as usual, your work is stunning and well textured. :) Good job!

LOL, thanks gods, my watchers are not nerds :nerd: and understand this is just a fantasy scene, drawn by a dabbler, not some historical reproduction of a traditional Olympic archer.

I'm an instructor, so I notice the little details. Its stuff like that, that makes the piece just that much more. Since Isbjorg is an archer, its worth knowing a little bit about it! :)
