Finally! Someone gets it. Alanna is not tall or medium height, and she and Kel are muscularly built with relatively broad shoulders from years of hard training. Though Kel is like 6' 1" by the end of her books.
I love the way you draw Kel and Beka, cbut Kel especially. UuU A lot of the time I see people draw her more ... traditionally feminine, I guess? I'm not quite sure how to describe it but, yeah, she looks really great the way you draw her. Exactly how I pictured her when I read PotS!
This may have just been a height comparison, but I think you got a lot more in there than just that. Their stances, the colors, their facial expressions speak so much of their actual personalities. Kel being one of my favorites and you have her down to a T. She's one of those people that is like a solid pillar, and you caught that, with her being the allest and bluntest pose. Youve gotten something like that for each of them. Aly's kinda throwing herself out there, Beka's turned away liek she doesn't really want to be in the public eye, Alanna's there but not happy about it, and Daine just going with it. Great Work!
