Mistborn by pandasuze Mistborn by pandasuze
Vin of the Mistborn series, one of my favourite characters for her badassery.

Mostly a painting exercise, started as another faceoff attempt with painter which I quickly abandoned for photoshop again TwT

Background city is from here ([link]žion=&q=rooftops#/d27gfts).

Edit: The face on this had really been buggin me, so I went in and tried to improve it. Also added some glowies!

Definitely what I saw Vin as, though I'm surprised to not see any weapons on her.

Vin has proven herself to be amazing at using the environment to kill her foes, but she did on occasion use non-metallic weapons. Primarily glass and obsidian knives, if memory serves me correctly.

I love her expression and the shape of her face. I think you totally captured what Vin looks like.

ha ha, you know, when I first joined deviantart, I saw this picture and thought 'what? cool picture, but what?' and now that I've read them, it's fun to see this and actually understand it.

Yay Vin!

I love that her vials of metal are glowing.  Kinda gives the impression that I myself am a Mistborn looking at her, and can tell which metal is which.  :squee:

This is almost exactly what I pictured Vin to look like. Do you think you could draw Valette?

I was having trouble getting the kind of gauziness I wanted, so I ended up lassoing off areas in photoshop and using a big fuzzy brush.

Uh, Vin. Might not want to drink those metals. I think they're radioactive!

Haha! Just kidding! The glowing vials look so cool! Wow, that's such an awesome picture of Vin! I love the mistcloak! Have you read anything else by Sanderson?

Yup, I also really enjoyed Warbreaker! And right now I'm working on the newest novel in the Mistborn series. After that I'll have to track down some more, I love his writing style :)
Also, thankyou very much!

I agree with AndrePaploo: gorgeous lighting, and a really innovative use of stock! I especially love the lighting on her face! Simon was telling me about Mistborn and I think I'm going to read it after I finish this darn degree!

I second his recommendations! I think it's the only 700-page per book trilogy I've ever read twice.
