I love the PF game (I was hosting this Adventure Path) and I'm hoping to do some work for Paizo in the future. I say all of that so that I might say that this Illustration hits me in ALL the right places! As a gamer AND as an artist. It is excellent. Very fine work that expresses the character wonderfully! You've used such economy in your brush strokes...masterful. I'll be studying this for a while.

It reminds me of the expression that 'An artist never finishes a work...he abandons it' I can imagine that you would have loved to keep going...but then would further detail upset the balance and ruin the beauty of the pure strokes of colour that captures the fall and rhythm that is her hair?

Simply excellent!

Wow thank you for the very kind comment! Yes, usually I just HAVE to give up working on an illustration, deadline is always around the corner, but this is also a cool "device" that helps you focus and prioritize on important things.

Credit where credit is due. In future, I may ask a few details about doing commisioned work for Paizo if that is O.K. with you. (Once I have works ready for submission. I have one WIP at the moment) Please tell me if you are unwilling to do so? Thanks.

Sure no problem. Actually the process is quite simple: once you have a portfolio you have to submit it to Paizo's Senior AD Sarah Robinson (either by mail or in person during some convention) and if she likes your works she will contact you in a few weeks. Here you can find some advice for what your portfolio should have written by Sarah herself [link]
