BlueWingedCoyote Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2007
Graceful and strong like a sword with a unicorn horn handle, cool and deadly as the lady who holds it. Wow, again I am amazed, I could comment on everything but I'm trying to restrain myself to just the ones that really catch my eye. Love the outfit and the ripples in the silk. Love her hair, the braids and the ornaments and the way it's flowing.
Rezuri Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2007
I'm going to be a sheep first-off and say this is beautiful, lol. ;)

You've got some really nice character/costume design going on here. It's so light and flowy...

Pui-Mun Law? Awesome! You were, like, my absolute favourite when I used to hang at Elfwood, and now I stumble on this picture during a random search! Methinks it's time to start adding some favourites... :worship:

As for this image, I like it allot. I'm weak for the combination of beautiful women and swords, and I love the outfit you've given her.
Skogflickan Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2005
Amazing! :aww:
Amichan10 Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2005
This lady looks like a wicked sorceress! Love the obi sash, and dress sleeves dress! Her braided hair, and serious demeanor, just looking at her, you can tell she commands great respect and power. I wouldn't want to mess with her! EVER! She'd whip my BUTT! ;) Your style of watercoloring has this etheral, other-worldly quality aspect to it, which makes it look translucent, very nice.

I know this is going to sound creapy, but this painting is like my ego. I've been practicing kendo for a while, and this is so... I don't have a word for it really... That's how it feels to practice! :D

I love your artwork and this one is my favorite :floating: I love her sword and I love her Kimono-like outfit. I wish I had an outfit like that :D I dont know where I'd wear it though...
Eboshi Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2005
You are, by far, one of the bests artists I've seen on here so far. Your pictures have so much thought and feeling, let alone talent, behind them.
Color me TOTALLY impressed ;)

As always, lovely combination of colors.

Awesome! Yours is among the best artwork I've seen for a long time. Extremely high caliber work all around. I'd fave it all, but this really takes the cake on my interest in the area. Simply stunning work.
Hettar7 Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2005
i like her pose on this one. so noble. the outfit design really adds to the feel too. i like your choice of material for the hilt of the sword. different. looks like unicorn or some other kind of horn. or a material made to look like it. she's got really strong facial features and hands.
puimun Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2005  Professional Traditional Artist
She is of the Unicorn Clan in the game, so that was intentional! :)

though i know that my comment will most likely be piled beneath the many you have received thus far and are receiving every day. i would like to say that seeing your artwork is a shock of reality to me. it shocks me into recognizing how far i have to go to make it so i can reverberate what lurks in the sands of my mind. i hope i don't sound too foreward in this, i just think that your artwork is one of the most lovely i have seen. thank you.
puimun Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2004  Professional Traditional Artist
I do read all the comments, so I appreciate it! Thank you very much!

Oh god, I'm in love with this.. I love how you have the unicorn appearing in her robe.. With the sword taking the shape of the horn. Just amazing.

Oh yeah, how did you get that great erm.. Splotching effect in the background? It almost looks like you had used salt on it, or maybe just plain ol' water... But I'm curious, anyways.~ It's a truly beautiful effect. @_@
