There is something a little more European about this image than the rest of my Motherland Chronicles pieces, I thought that was kind of nice. Then I realized that the pale hair and lashes reminded me of Ayami Kojima's work a little, which I thought hey, was pretty cool too, didn't see that when I was shooting. 

On set I had one of my favorite artists Lucong hang out and assist which was super sweet and kinda made me nervous, because omg someone I admire is watching my ghetto set where I take 10294828 hours just to get one picture. But, it turned out to be a really pleasant experience and we chatted about ways we work, old forum days and all that. :D

Super backlogged with posts and stuff but working on it! Excited about BlizzCon tomorrow!

Etched gorget armor by ArmStreet

Choker and circlet by Harlequin Romantique

First guy for personal work in 3 years! Dedicated to my love for 80's and 90's Japanese fantasy anime, or maybe just mostly Amano's work. Also may or may not have been thinking about Laurent from Captive Prince by S.U. Pacat a lot? The possibilities are endless. :D

So happy I finally got to shoot a piece of armor from ArmStreet! Thank you Misha for lending me this beautiful gorget.

Crown and choker by ArmStreet
Backdrop from Savage Paper

Did this on a Sunday night in my room after my trip back from Toronto. A lot of Game of Thrones comments on Facebook,  made me think I should've probably just title it Arya instead. :D 

Many many thanks to ArmStreet for the beautiful crown and choker, and Savage Paper for the gorgeous backdrop (collapsibles are so handy)!
