I was wondering the same thing because I had faved your art a while back and then saw the article. It surprised me because I knew from your comments this was not the Dagna from Dragon Age. How annoying that they didn't ask you permission. :/
I agree! There's so many ideas that I never see used in the fantasy genre (e.g. any character who involves bats/snakes/spiders and is remotely GOOD), and lack of gender balance is probably the most common problem with the genre IMO. I've seen a few feminine Orc/Troll/Goblin type characters and was glad to see such originality - but it's an unfortunately rare occurrence.
--- CUDDLE BUG HUG BECAUSE I LOVE YOU I've heard it said, and I´m sure it must be true, that receiving hugs is really very good for you. There´s a hug that says, hello, how are you? one especially to cheer you when you´re blue, A sad hug that says, I love you so, The really nice thing about hugs, I o admit, is the more you give away, the more you get, And this little cuddle bug has brought you agreat big hug from me, that´s long overdue! -J.
