Archer by Wildweasel339 Archer by Wildweasel339
Below is the preliminary sketch. I filled in the silhouette over this as a mask, and then let textured brushes do the rest of the work.
Rogue Archer Sketch by Wildweasel339

The bow is loosely based on a traditional Japanese design.   4.bp.blogspot.com/-lI59P4ddaCw…
It is consistent with the theme of asymmetrical balance that I was going for in the pose.

Really cool and dynamic. I love how her leg is lifted to kind of form a bow shape of its own. Great work!

Lovely.  I saw it in MJWilliam's favorites.  From the thumbnail I assumed it was a photograph of a bronze statue.

I like it even better this way.

The full-size version is stunning.

Have you thought about doing several of these?  You have the archer (awesome, by the way), so now I think we'd need a swordsman, a fan-dancer, a pole-arm, all those kinds.  They'd look good as a simplistic japanese art collection!

When I saw the pic, It remembered me immediately of Kyudo, japanese Archery. The 2/3 at top, 1/3 at bottom asymmetry is good, but the top part of the bow would lean a bit forward and you'd get an even more impressive asymmetric design - more accurate i'd be, too. The arrow is a bit too high. It should touch your cheekbones - or even lower, depending on the school.
But never the less, it's a very nice picture ^^
