Previously a struggling wizard-in-training, Ara Bovary attempted to sabotage another student's project to buy herself more time to complete her own. While she ultimately did not go through the act, the high elf was felt so ashamed of herself she left the school and attempted suicide. She was saved by a passing monk who nursed her back to health. Inspired by her saviour, she tried the monastic life for a time, but was unable to master their craft so she was advised instead to go on a hermitage to find herself. It was through that journey that Ara was changed forever.

The challenge on this was definitely how to make blue skin look realistic. It was an interesting task balancing the vibrancy of the blues against the rest of the rather desaturated colour palette. I think I most enjoyed painting the base.
