Never Despair, Never Surrender by temiel Never Despair, Never Surrender by temiel
A little something between commissions. Talking to =Dwenda the other night while at a loss for something of my own to draw, she mentioned that we've almost NEVER seen Action!Rian, and that she wanted to see her more badass captainy side. It's definitely true my favorite thing to do is people making googoo eyes at each other, but rest assured, she can hold her own in a fight. She didn't take over as Captain of the Havn for being a moony googoo romantic, after all. ;)

Textures by `Princess-of-Shadows, ~struckdumb, and =cloaks. Brush by ~green-eyed-butterfly.

Again, that is a really awesome outfit, particularly the hat! I love those feathers. And Rian just oozes confidence and adventure here!

Thanks so much! :D I'm so glad you like it. The feathers are always fun to do (well, the lines, anyway, less so the coloring ;)). Yay for flowy lines! :dance:

Thank you! :hug: I have no idea, but that's happened to me a bunch of times, I'll go to someone's page and realize I totally missed something they did and I'll think "wait... I don't think I got that in my inbox!" :XD: So no worries. :love:

"My lady!" *flourishing bow* "You are as beautiful as ever!"
*Puts sword to his throat*
"And as dangerous, of course" *adds, still with a smile on his face*

Nicely done!

Rian looks gorgeous even in the middle of battle! She'll stun her enemies with feminine features and they won't even know what attacked them!

YAY! Pink! :D

LOL, I totally love that idea, and honestly, it sounds a lot like her "strategy"... :roll: Nah, I kid, she can actually kick a fair amount of tail. But all those pink frills don't hurt as far as the distractor-factor goes. :giggle:

Very Nice. also try doing this from a dynamic angle, like if you were looking up and she was pointing the gun at you. That would be cool too. Still nice.

Actually,the whole picture is magical and feels very much alive - perhaps it's the colours you used too. :thumbsup:

I have to say that I love the pink.
The picture itself is really nice and she sure does show her kick ass side but what really gets to me is the pink colours. People should use more pink.
It's not my favourite colour but it's sadly very underestimated... like brown (that's why I have a character who dresses in pink and brown, I guess x'D )

So it's nice to see some pink :D

And the hat is epic. Pure epic.
A pink, epic hat.

Awesome :meow:

I KNOW, RIGHT?! I actually really like pink, but it gets such a bad reputation for some reason! It may not be my favorite color ever, but it DEFINITELY goes underrepresented a lot of the time. =(

BRINGING PINK OUT OF OBSCURITY, ONE RIDICULOUS PIRATE HAT AT A TIME! :highfive:

Exactly! It's really sad... people only use pink nowadays when they have pink awareness and that's just... well... sad :(

This is very true D: I love pink. It's not such a terrible girly-girl color, even though I'm a terrible girly-girl. Plus I think if you're the one holding the cutlass, you can dress however you like.

Somehow that was buried somewhere in my inbox :O_o: the deviations never show up in any order and are just added somewhere it seems... so I never can keep track of any uploaded order D:
But Rian looks so awesome here :heart: her outfit is so dashing and her pose is awesome :love: I want her hat :giggle:

I give her props for being badass not only while wearing bright pink - but while in a corset. It's damn hard to move in those things; my hat's off to her!

:icontemiel:
temiel Featured By Owner May 6, 2010  Professional General Artist
It is indeed hard! Then again, she's wearing a 300 YEARS IN THE FUTURE CORSET, so I wonder whether they've figured out how to get the shape without the constriction? :shrug:
