Elf-taur perhaps? =P

The pic doesn't give it way, but she is meant to be like 6,5 tall and -very- strong, while having a pure, brave heart and an almost innocent way to see things.

Desc by Mocaw!

*****

"Do you know how I started out on this journey?" Skade asked, leaning against the table, her battle-axe held in one hand. "Actually, when I started, I wasn't very happy about the idea at all. I mean, why would a Shield Maiden like me want to leave the Northlands and travel around behind some fourteen year-old priestess of the weaker gods? The All-Father would turn in his grave now if he could see what I have been reduced to."

"But. . . the law is the law, and my life is hers. After my brother was killed, I took up his axe and armor to avenge him. But my enemy was strong, and cunning. I was defeated, and I was stripped naked and chained to a millstone, made to push it forever like a beast of burden, as a punishment for daring to oppose the Horned King. If she had not released me from my chains, I might be pushing it still."

"As for how she did that, and how I came to recover part of my brother's armor and axe. . . that is a story for another time," she says. She sits down at the table in the summer villa, and she smiles at us as she pours a glass of wine. "So. . . who wishes to tell their story next?"

Another fine work. I really like the Celtic symbols on her ax. You did a very fine job with those.

I so love this picture and the innocent face and expression on her, also just love that axe and her attire as well. You have such amazing artistic skill that is just so beyond amazing!

She's just a lovely mix of sexy, cute, cuddly, and strong, all the traits that drive me wild. Few people do lush curves like you do, Jessica.

Her nose does seem a bit low and to the left of where I'd expect it to be, but I wouldn't have even noticed if EmotionlessBlue hadn't mentioned it.
