I Will Not Bow by Tsuzukikun I Will Not Bow by Tsuzukikun

@__@ Holy crap its done....Seriously people the amount of stress this put me through right when work was getting STUPID (see: wanting to tear my hair out) it was just INSANE trying to get her done!!

I kid you not, this was done on FOUR separate sheets of paper that I had to piece together in photoshop (PAIN IN THE ASS) cuz my scanner wasn't big enough. And even though I didn't change the settings, ALL the blues scanned at different shades so I had to adjust EVERY SINGLE FREAKIN' THING!!

I have this silly dream to one day see this sculpted so I wanted to give her a proper base, and if you'll notice, her left foot (our right) and the tips of her wings connect with the ice spiked base for stability. The base I think would look just sexy in clear resin.

ANYWAY.....Here she is. My Girl, Shaelynn Sinclair of the Serpent Guard Pantheon. She started out as a mere bounty hunter/ranger, but through everything (and a wonderful little plot device known as a Prophecy XD) She and her sisters became Goddesses, albeit Lesser ones, each gaining an elemental power. Shaelynn drew the ice/water card. LOL The Higher Gods had their little rivalries with each other, some subtle some not so subtle, but noone would do anything about it or the wars that broke out in all the God's names.

That is until the Serpent Guard came along :XD: Shaelynn couldn't stand the Gods and their fake interests in what went on in Their names, and was the first one to stand up to them and fight back in the name of the PEOPLE, dragging her siblings along for the ride. Needless to say, she garnered herself a reputation. The People Loved her, and well over half the Gods didn't, but noone really dared to act out against her, as she had no qualms about biting back, usually harder.

The only man to ever put her in her place and actually make her doubt herself and her abilities, is her Great Uncle Drogan, the First Vampire and half brother of Amon of the Egyptian Pantheon. (Shaelynn is a direct descendant of this pantheon, her Grandmother is Isis)

Drogan chose to single her out, but instead of directly going after her like everyone else, he attacked those she cared about, killing off friends and family and succeeding in turning her husband Randel and their daughter Reina against her. Only then did he engage her on several choice occasions that left her near death and mentally broken down. She was then deemed "unfit" to lead the party due to her emotional reactions and sent away for a time to pull herself together. When she came back, she had a renewed strength when she fought against Drogan and Randel. She managed to regain her husband from the Vampire's mind control and with his help very nearly defeated Drogan until he struck a fatal blow and killed Shaelynn. She was eventually brought back to life and the rivalry between her and Drogan seemed renewed, though with a healthy level of respect by both sides that it hasn't come to quite the same sort of violence yet.

She usually she dual wields Katana, reversed (and by that I don't mean the blade itself like Kenshin, I mean she holds the swords so that the blades run up her arms, not pointing down at the ground), but she does have several pairs. This particular one belongs to her obsidian set, one of her favourites. The other one, she's probably lost in battle for the time being >.>

I Will Not Bow by Breaking Benjamin


Now the dark begins to rise
Save your breath it's far from over
Leave the lost and dead behind
Now's your chance to run for cover
I don't want to change the world
I just want to leave it colder
Light the fuse and burn it up
Take the path that leads to nowhere
All is lost again, but I'm not giving in

I will not bow, I will not break
I will shut the world away
I will not fall, I will not fade
I will take your breath away


Watch the end through dying eyes
Now the dark is taking over
Show me where forever dies
Take the fall and run to heaven
All is lost again, but I'm not giving in

I will not bow, I will not break
I will shut the world away
I will not fall, I will not fade
I will take your breath away

And I'll survive, paranoid
I have lost the will to change
And I am not proud, cold blooded, fake
I will shut the world away


Warned you there were a lot of words XDD Kudos and cookies to anyone who actually read them all.

Like the wings.
I just really admire your work. Great stuff. I'm just learning. However, you have some bold colors, impressive technique and skill. Thanks for just being on deviantart. I'm just learning. But, love your perspective and how you capture your characters movement. I need to learn more from great artist like you.
