Anastasia lights up the night by falingard Anastasia lights up the night by falingard
The lineart is here, and everyone is welcome to colour it, with any colour scheme they like! :D


Lady Karess, after setting some ships on fire. She's a pirate, arr, she can create mayhem in other ways than by slashing people with her gauntlet, don't you know. And no, I don't know if her dress is fireproof. I guess she'd better hope so. (At some point while I was working, she was completely surrounded by fire - I thought it better to change that.)

I sometimes get the feeling that I always resort to fire when I don't know what to put in a background, but... I couldn't find many recent pics with fire in them, so I guess it can't be that bad.

So she obviously has one closet for gowns. Does she have another one for murderous gauntlets?
An armoire maybe.

Nothing like a fancy dress and manic dress to make a girl feel foine.
Also, ruffles + flames usually ends in giant fireball.

Someone knows how to wreak havoc in style!

One can only hope those feathers are fireproof. Otherwise, one stray spark will start a fashion disaster...

Wow the lighting effects are really nice! It must have been troublesome with all the gold and the orange/yellow floating around. Great job!

Well, fire tends to be a bit less boring than a blank background :V ... or rather, it takes more effort to do, so you FEEL like you've done something! :XD:

...actually nearly all the shading was done before I decided to add the fire ^^; ... I just added an orangeish tinge on top of the character to make her fit in, and made it all more contrasty

They're actually meant to be golden eyes :XD:

Oooooh, I get it. Sorry, I wouldn't have figured that out on first glance unless they looked more metallic.

Makes sense, and that is the best emote ever. And on a side note, the fiery background is too perfect, glad you went with it.

Something tells me she wouldn't be overly perturbed even if her dress did catch some fire.

But her leg, I guess behind it is missing a shadow. It’s just doesn’t look right in that spot.
