I had so much fun doing this XD I wanted it to be like the former piece i uploaded a few weeks ago [link]
So i took the Fullbody pic i drew on Evaedeni's Ref sheets and Worked it out so it would look like its sisterpiece. Also, i tried to achive a similar look on the background like in this piece from years ago: [link]
Luckily, it turned out WAY better. I always wanted to draw backgrounds like in this piece but was never able to. Now i finally succeeded!
Now to some explainations to this piece:
Evaedeni is parapledgic but recieved a bond with the Shenta ta Wyvuro (guardian of wind) before she herself became a Shenta ta (shenta ta's can't forge bonds amongst each other exept if it was forged before they became guardians), so she can freely move around without being bound to a chair or anything like that. Since she needs most of her Magic for other stuff, she got 2 enchanted Spheres on her hips ( a big one and a middle sized one ), which are the source of the wind that makes her hover. In order to give the Orbs the correct direction to where they should channel the wind force, theres one small Sphere on each of her shoe.
Because Evaedeni used to roam the lands of Zäa alone before she got her personal Bodyguard, she felt the need to have music to enlighten her, so she got herself 3 Violins, 2 of which also have a little sphere worked into the Scroll, so the wind plays the violins for her. The two that have a sphere are Black and White (I've seen black and white violins on ebay, they really do exist! honestly!) which she calls Evo and Ivo , which also have symbolic meaning to her (look at her hair lol), the third she owns is the usual wood color. The normal violin she likes to play herself, just to pastime and pass boredom.

. I originally planned to just use them as reference for the strokelines but i was too lazy to finish up and i think they do their job this way pretty well too
I think its the first time i ever used formbrushes that you can actually still make out in the final piece since 2005 or something lulz.
Also, PNG and halftransparency is pretty much screwed on the new DA version. So i felt the necessity of adding a background color (for the swirlyness, too). Did the same with "On our Journey".
If i get the muse, i might actually make a series with this style XD.
