this is badass and my irrational hatred of swords that are impossible to get out of their sheath shall be put aside to enjoy just how awesome it is to see this. I myself have a particular love of barbarian elves and that you used my fav color for the outfit, which i love by the way.(obviously not for me but i still love it, and seeing so much of it in the rest of your work rocks-that style of blue just makes me happy) Ill just imagine she left her cloak at the door and that she has absolutly no intention of paying for that book while sitting over in my little corner.
I really like this. Both the concept and the execution - there's something about the line-quality you get when inking with brushpens that really appeals to me, and you picked some really nice colours for this. I also like that kind of smug look on her face. "Haha, I am both smarter and stronger than you!"
