This is the very start of an illustration I did about a year ago and never finished, I still plan to. She is the main character in the fiction/fantasy series I hope to write (I've started). I'm pretty paranoid that someone will steal my characters or ideas so I'm not going to go into detail about much until I'm more comfortable with sharing.
People who know me who I have shared some of my ideas with seem to think this girl is based on myself and it makes me a little uncomfortable that anything I write about her they will somehow think it relates to me. To be honest I'm not so sure her character is really close to my personality at all. I think because I created her with dark hair and eyes is the biggest factor contributing to the idea because I myself have those physical traits. I think if anything I wanted the main character to share my sense of spiritual purpose and compassion and in a very exaggerated way, she becomes aware of and has contact with spiritual entities, some good and others bad, and I gave her a psychic sense of empathy to the emotional and physical states of those around her. That's her crow on her shoulder preening her hair by the way, barely sketched.
The title is representive of her ancestry, she is descendant from several races.
