11 x 14 color pencil
*** This is a repost of last nights pic. Better lighting and camera settings got truer colors and a bit better resolution.
I intended this to be a quick simple pinup piece. That didn't happen, I have problems with simple. It was still quick for me though, under a week from sketch to finish.
Shot with camera so lost a lot detail. Will repost when I get a proper scan. She will be in the MFF art show.
Four years younger than her sister Kesharaexa, Natta took after their mother, a Bengal and was quite petite as far as tigers go but also inherited her mothers magic abilities. Kesh on the other hand, outweighed her by almost a hundred pounds, getting that from their father who was of Siberian stock. Their father started training Kesh in the warrior arts almost as soon as she could grip a sword.
At nattas birth, her mother sensed instantly that she had magic talent, a very strong one, and likewise started teaching her of the mystic arts as soon as she could speak.
By age 14, she was performing magics flawlessly that her mother wouldn't even attempt. At 16, enough money had been saved to send her to a master Enchanter for greater training.
Then everything changed with the murder of their parents….
