Vin is very well done.  They sky could be more hazy or have ash falling.  I believe at the point in the story when this scene takes place there is always ash falling.

There is no ashfall.  Also the sky seems to much like, well, like a real sky instead of the misty/ashy sky of Scadria.

Ink, your mistcloak is amazing.

Thanks as always, guys. I feed on the praise, but please don't hesitate to call out the weak parts if you feel 'em.

The meh gradient and the world of sin below her knees that I hid with mist are the reasons I refer to it as "not quite finished". That BG definitely needs something, whether it's ashfall or silhouettes of buildings or enemies or something.

I think Miyabi has recognized something about the context, but I'd suggest keeping it a surprise until the limits of my ambition are certain. I thought that this figure stands well enough on its own so I dressed it up and spit-polished a few of the stains and Bob's your mother's brother.

Consider it, for the moment, an exclusive for the fans here on the board. I probably won't make even this fragment fully public (posting it all the other places I go) until I've done a bit more with it.

All in all it was amazingly well done though.  I wish I could draw human figures that well.  I draw them well enough that you can tell what they're supposed to look like, but that's about it.

Love it. Great work, Ink. It almost looks like sand behind her.  :o

Pretty sure I don't understand the question. Do you mean digital painting? In which case, yes. Photoshop CS2 on the Cintiq21UX.

Ink, you never cease to amaze me. That is an awesome image of Vin.

As for this newer version, I seem to remember that not only was there ash falling, but snow as well. The section of the book with the siege in it is titled "Snow and Ash" for that reason: because the white and black of both snow and ash must have just clicked for Brandon as an image.

Ink....you are amazing. The sword is very very cool. I really like the mistcloak as well. The only thing that bothers me is I don't think Vin's shirt would be open like that.

SO! EPIC! i luv u!!!!

I'm wondering if those are scars on her face and arms? If they are, then they could be more defined?

Splatters. Mud or blood, your choice.

Vin never got scarred up, did she? Kelsier has those defining arm scars, of course...

I think Brandon played down her scarring, but Vin got hurt a lot. She's bound to have some scars.

I think it's hilarious that you put "splatters" on her cheek, because she does have a scar there and that's what I thought it was. :) In fact, by the end of WoA she had a matching scar on the other cheek, courtesy of Zane.
