Before it all. by rooster82 Before it all. by rooster82
This piece was initially for a calendar project here on dA, but I got the theme wrong and had to set this aside while I worked on other things. Decided to finish it up.

I worked from several references for the background, but I wish I used a reference for the figure. The figure should be slightly more distorted for the low angle shot I'm trying to imply. Ah well, I'll keep that in mind for a future piece. :)

...Y'know, I only found your comic last night ( Which I'm now utterly in love with I may add!) but what scares me is how similar my Warden is to yours...They even look a like. A part from "Nara" is a much prettier name, I couldn't think of anything so I ended up calling mine "Una". But anyway I'm rambling, sorry. I love your work and your Warden! Make haste with the next page!
