Something came up and I won't be home till tomorrow, then 2nd to finish :( such a bummer. I guess my entry will just be some fanart for you. I tried, but I wasn't expecting not to be home.

I'll be home the 2nd and I'll have it done then. I just had a couple little things left and then it'll be ready to post. Not sure what you're time zone is, but for me, I'll get home around 1:30-2pm tomorrow so it'll probably be done around 3pm for me.

thanks for the watch! ^-^ <3

it was a lot of fun to design her.. I tried to avoid using the usual approach of "okay, so what does a ranger look like? what would look cool?" and instead asked myself things such as "what is around her, what can she use, what would she use, why would she have those things and what is their purpose?" =)

hello there! ^^
you can submit the drawing to you own gallery, a syou would upload any other thing, then send me a link to it via comment!

you can buy things on deviantart with points, such as merchandise or a subscription/premium account.
a lot of artists offer commissions for points, too!
20 points are worth about 20 US dollars.
