I think I've finally got the smirk I was looking for. Can anyone guess where the face came from?

She looks a little ... well-supported ... for 80.

She's an archmage. I guess they age more slowly...

Still not what I envisioned her as, but yea that's my opinion. Good job on this. Anyone else being re-created?

Well yeah, but I'm very sure it spoke of Erika in even Avernum 3 as looking middle aged, (Redmark Brand Anti-aging Cream...?) so...

Maybe she wouldn't look Halle Berry good, but I think it's safe to say she certianly wouldn't look anything like her real age. It's more fitting for a "powerful" character in my opinion anyways.

Wizards look old. Female mages must not look old, or they're crones, and that's another type of mage altogether. On the other hand, have you ever seen a powerful male mage that looks younger than 90?

I guess female mages are more conscious of what they look like :P .ö

She's 80? Wow. I thought she was a lot younger than that. Where did it say her age?

She's the same age as Rone and Solberg, and she's been in Exile for over 50 years.

Vengeance can certainly keep you looking young!

—Alorael, who also suspects that Erika takes advantage of her skills with altering life. After all, if she could recreate Avernum's ecosystem to make it more hospitable to humans, a little bit of maintenance on herself shouldn't be hard.

Age - No reason she can't look young. Spells, potions, etc.

Support - I think she is within reaonable limits. Besides, those mushroom bras do wonders for you!

Thanks for the positive feedback all. Remember, three years ago I couldn't do any of this. I'll never be a master, but at least I know I have some skill.

Very nice! One small gripe - that red seems to stand out quite a bit from her surroundings, making me believe that she's super-imposed (which I've no doubt she is :-P) rather then part of the picture.

My thoughts exactly, but not hard to solve. Simply a little shading on the dress will give in the same gloomy look as the rest of the picture.

Or does she stand out so much because she radiates magic in a dark place? Hmm....

In E2/A2, Garzhad. Garzhad was a middle-aged man.

Is it just me, or does her head seem a bit small for her body. Also, it isn't just her smile that is Halle Barry's, it's her whole face. Not that I'm complaining, as it is a very nice face to look at. Good work anyhow, its still better than anything I've tried to draw, with or without a computer.

Anybody care to look at her fingers that are holding the ball?

Don't they look…odd?

Yes, I was thinking that too. It's a great picture, though.

OK - I took some of the ideas - particularally about shading, and adding them to this version. This is a 1024 X 768 graphic, best downloaded and viewed at that size. I made it my desktop image.

In my BoE scenario "The Purple Faction" Nerfix,an(badguy) uber-wizard is mere 32 years old and he looks..well 20 at human standards.

Brett, this version is GREAT, though Erika's hair still looks funny. GREAT, anyway. :)
