Started this very late (yesterday) mainly because of my inability to sleep. Wasn't going to enter this contest at first. So, it definitely looks sloppy.
I chose and modified Character 4 from the Resource Package. Ended up being this slightly creepy bird/ice princess outfit. Not sure if I like the outfit or not.
One thing I like about my lack of commitment to a style is that I can try lots of different styles. I haven't drawn a picture with lineart in such a long time, and also haven't drawn a very manga-ish picture in a long time too, so it was nice practicing the stylized anatomy.
She's casting an ice spell (sorceresses can cast lightning, fire and ice spells according to the Fantasy Zero website).
Overall, fun picture to do. Even the lineart was relaxing to draw, and I think it turned out better than my usual fail attempts at lineart. Not expecting any results from this contest. Critique always welcome, I just won't be able to make corrections since this is a contest entry.
