I'm delving deeper into the relationship between Nulmiril and her near-damn-perfect younger sis, Liniriel. Not sure how it comes across, but Nulmiril doesn't actually want to be more like Lini - she doesn't consider her sister's personality aspects particularly valuable, but does lament they are found to be more acceptable and 'proper' by the society they both come from.
She also respects herself, and takes some pride in being that 'scarred-up monster' - but does realise most of the time it's pointless to expect others to see it in the same way. Plus, it gives her plenty of leverage when people are intimidated by her. ;]
As a side note, I guess I should start sorting this under 'mixed media' rather than 'traditional art' because I apply enough Photoshop voodoo that I can't just use the latter category with a straight face…?
