Hello, Laiyla! It's a very impressive scene, for real. Her history touched me and sometimes i feel like i been there. She was a great woman and strong warrior! Nice work! :)

It reminds me of a song by Enya - it was called Boadicea - presumably after her :P

Hehehe.. but I'm not that good at french, though.
I still want to learn Icelandic, Irish, Gaelic, Breton, Norwegian, Swedish, Estonian, Italian, Slovenian and Japanese :P

But I don't think I'm going to succeed..

I love the tattoo on her head, tho the eyes kinda freak me out, how they're just white. Love it, so much detail.

ps: redheads rule :P

They're not just white, it's just that you see your irises from the side too, so they look flat-ish.

Mostly watercolor, but also pencil and calligraphy pen for extra shadowing.
