Back in the day I had a few random characters I had created for the purpose of... well, creating characters. This one was named Fire-From-The-Eye, a tiefling by D&D standards and was my favourite of the bunch. I only ended up creating about two pieces of her, and I always wanted to go back and revisit her character in some way.
Obviously, I did indeed, and I began working on this a few months ago. However, I lost my desire to keep at it and so it sat there for some time. But eventually I picked it up again a few days ago and finished it up.
I had a big old Mary Sue-ish backstory to go along with her years back, but in the interest of not vomiting I won't ever make that public again. Suffice it to say there was emo, and abandonment and causing deaths of friends, etc. It was pretty bad.
Anyways, most of you who've followed me over the years know I have a weird thing for tiefling elves with scales, claws, and horns, and Fire-From-The-Eye is no exception. This time I decided to simplify her outfit a tad, and remove some of the extraneous jewelery and miscellanous additions... probably due to laziness but I think it works a bit better than the previous design.
Offtopic, I haven't been very productive with artwork at all as of late. It's been sort of a struggle against myself this year. Makes it less enjoyable than it ought to be and I'm still trying to figure out how to get past it. I always seem to be struggling with some form of artblock or another! Probably self-inflicted...

Painter 9, didn't keep track of time. A lot, probably.
Thanks for looking... Edit:
Clarified my description a tad. Happy power engrish 100%.
