When you see Vivian like that, better run away XP
I wanted to draw a picture of her in a very different situation we are used to see her.
Here you can tell she is pretty serious, drawing on dark magic, and preparing a pretty bad surprise for her unseen opponent!

I love this picture. The anatomy is absolutely gorgeous, as is her expression. She looks very focused and fierce. Whoever she's aimed at better watch out. xD The tendrils of water create a nice sense of movement and rhythm, but the shading, however is a little lack-luster there. That's just my opinion, though ^^ I like the way you kept a cool color palette, but for some reason my eye keeps looking for pops of color to stand out. Maybe if you had used a brighter color for her eyes or the gem in her staff?

All in all, it's a really nice piece. The composition is really focused and it's all fairly balanced. Nice job C:

Well there is a reason people leave her alone.  She's a 40th level challenge!

Looking good Viv!

So the staff is the source of her power or is it just there to look cool?

Wow, I don't know what it is about this piece but it looks so different to your normal works! Maybe its the colouring? Or the heavy contrast in light? Whatever it is, it's impressive that even after all this time you can still churn out something surprising and so original :) Love seeing you nail the cel-shaded effect too!

E gad!!! She's both sexy and very frightening like that. She looks like a final boss in a RPG....Man there's a pretty nasty sceenerio. You get to the end of the game and you find out you have to fight an enraged Vivian and for once you're wishing you were going to be eaten. XD

theres that scary side to vivian again! she definitley looks super intense here. those sly eyes of her work just as well in intimidating as they do in being seductive :D.
That staff is really starting to look ancient and mystical now with all those added details :)

and its a really nice action pose! you got a really nice swinging movement going on there with her arms and the magic flying fire stuff

It's a rare time when you're actually outright wanting to run AWAY from Vivian...but this is definitely one of them XD.

Compared to how we normally see her, this is definitely a very striking and downright scary image of her really!  It's a very rare occurrence to see this considering how she normally is and how even in the battle in the manga she never really brought out this kind of magic is quite shocking to see heh.  I also really like getting a good view of that scepter of hers and the designs on it here...makes you wonder about what it could mean :P.  Some good touches making her look a little scuffed up too, some signs of the battle she's having heh.

Well yes, I don't think it would have helped much there- I think Vivian is smart enough to know that much as well heh.  I just meant even in one of the times actually seeing her in a magic battle she still played more towards her mischievous personality in ability as well (which is of course how she would best handle that situation as well), while here is an entirely different look at what she is capable of.

This is an excellent piece of art. The background really makes it work, and the character art is spot-on. The way she moves, and the way the background moves are JUST RIGHT. The movements contrast a little, but they come together perfectly. Bravo!

C'est curieux, mais j'ai eu, avant de lire la description, le même sentiment que le gars en dessous , à savoir qu'on a l'impression qu'elle est plus en difficulté que menaçante. je crois que la spirale noire semble aspirer le dessin vers l'arrière, ce qui semble annuler la pose offensive de Vivian.  Superb  as always, man :-)

this is a really wonderful picture. You caught some really good action here. She really does look like she's been pushed to the edge, though usually when someone is forced to an attack like this it means they've bitten off more then they can chew. ._. I think I'm more afraid of vivian's opponent.

I'm not sure the lighting quite suits the situation in this picture. There's also the fact that she kind of looks like she's being attacked by those dark magics rather than giving any indication of being in control of them. On the positive side, she's as beautiful as ever, your knack for drawing attractive body shapes coming through again. ;3 And the design on that staff is quite pretty as well!

This is a very awesome pic!  I feel alot of strength in this pic, not just from the pose and expression, but just how it shows a hurricane of power is coming.

After seeing this, I hope to see Vivian cosplaying as Sorceress from dragon's crown sometime soon, zam.

This is incredible. It gives a powerful feeling of motion. The slightly subdued color palette also adds a more serious tone to the picture.

I love her expression, although I would hate to meet anything that could elicit such a response from Vivian. :tremble:
