Hey, this looks a lot like Thelana. Maybe too much so. But I imagine a naked girl with a bow can't be that uncommon, so I won't sue.  ;-)  What I might do is take you up on a commission if you're interested.

This work is absolutely breathtaking, her face and hair are wonderful (and her tummy is gorgeous).

She reminds me of the goddess Artemis, or a nymph...

Thanks! I really wanted to get the "huntress" aspect across in a very ancient way. Classically nude, no need for any signs of civilization but a warrior's cloak and weapons. Glad it showed through :)

You have really done an outstanding job with this piece! At first I thought Aquila must be a Roman name, or title for Artemis or the heroine Atalanta and it took me a few moments (and reading the description) to realise that she is in fact a character from a fantasy setting. :D
Also, the way you handled her nudity is excellent. Although she wears nothing but a short cape and the straps of her arms, she does not appear naked or exposed, as there is no explicit nudity shown and it only becomes apparent at the second glance. I think this presence of strength really adds to the Aquila's heroic/divine impression. :)

Thanks, Aquila is actually an ancient concept of Scorpio. She along with the rest of the mages from Isle of the Unknown RPG (some posted here and more to come soon) are all based on astrological symbolism.

That sounds cool. I'm definitely looking forward to the other ones. :)

From what I gather that book seems to be quite good overall. I think I'm going to buy it eventually.

Well done! Her left biceps looks a little bit weird, but I had to look at it for awhile to notice. The weather feels very real to me, again, great job!
