2013 reupload. This is a cropped version of what was once used as the banner for my Weasyl
account. Understandably, it was huge - and even this version is - so it was cut down considerably. The parts not shown are just the wings extending out further; this variation still keeps the core of the drawing, I think, without being ridiculously wide.
This is Vaerthe again, this time with her wings. She is something of a shape-shifter and can manifest them at will, hence their sudden appearance here and being missing in other work. I always liked this piece for its almost symbolic pose and stylishness, and also the copious amounts of the black/blue colour combination. Always something of a favourite of mine, even if rather strange in shape and composition. :]
