flaming sword warrior lady by ktshy flaming sword warrior lady by ktshy
I sketched and inked this last night while chatting with my comic buddy Jason Caffoe [link] (uber colourist of the Amulet series [link] ) and decided to slap on some colours before posting.

Who is she? Where'd she get them swanky swords? What's the story behind the tattoos? Why isn't she wearing a sweater? What did you say to her to make her look at you like that? (You mentioned the sweater, didn't you.) These questions may not have an answer, BUT as always, this was fun to draw!

~Brush and ink, coloured in photoshop

She's wating for someone to come back from the edge of the world.
^First thing that pops into my head when I see the snowy darkness ahead of her. "Oh, obviously the world does not exist beyond that little patch. Yep, just sittin' at the edge of space and time there."
...my head is a strange place...

She is dangerously close to burning her leg, though, lol

Very lovely! And I love how casually you say your comic buddy is the colorist to The Amulet series, I haven't read it myself yet but I just bought the second book for my little brother for Christmas, he LOVES it. Just thought that was amusing. Very well done, you made drawing that pose look so easy XD

I like her fanny pack- thought it was whale-tailling for a minute, but it looks handy for change, pills and insta-smoke to confuse your enemies.

There's something Conan the Barbarian about this, more specifically the scene where Conan and his allies put on war paint and sneak into that place.

do you actually draw these, or just ink them? because sometimes the drawings are amazing, and other times they're very average.

Please tell me this is going to be in a tv show, comic book, something!!!! This chick is awesome. But I have a better question than why isnt she wearing a sweater. More like where the hell are her shoes? My feet would be killing me. But great piece anyway.

This looks SO COOL. I love how you inked it - it kind of reminds me of how the comic Bone was inked, looking very bold and raw.

The sweater had nothing to do with it. Actually, I think she's looking at me like that because I asked why there was nothing between her butt and the snow.


Anywho, nice work. The fire sword seems bent where she's holding it, but otherwise, it's awesome.

Very nice indeed. Just when I thought I was going to poke myself in the eye if I saw another page full of fucking lame anime, even lamer cosplay and the other crap you usually see here, I noticed this. A ray of light in the darkness.

Interesting style with the flat colours and all, I must say. I also like the girl's big hair. I like big hair.
