Phoenix Chosen by phoenixlu Phoenix Chosen by phoenixlu
This is a cover commission for Ekaterine Xia,thank you!:heart:

When a spell saves her life by sending her to her mother's homeland, Estyria finds herself in a world she'd believed to exist solely in bedtime stories – a realm where gods walk the earth, magic is real, and political intrigue strikes close and hard . 
As Scion to a noble House and caught in a competition for the throne, she has mere weeks to learn to navigate the murky waters of court and tangled loyalties. 
More than a crown and the well-being of a country is at stake. Two men are bound to her by destiny and their fates depend upon her choice. Sethalor, who holds secrets and memories lost to her, vows to defy the very gods to keep her safe. Aedrian, who agreed to protect her out of love for his prince, but comes to see in her a ruler he would give his soul to protect. 
Through assassinations, poison, and shifting alliances, can Estyria keep the realm, her heart and the people she loves safe? 
—— Ekaterine Xia

Is her other hand tucked away? Because it appears as though it is missing.

Most likely tucked away because with outfits like those, most of the times, you don't see their hands cause the sleeves are so long.

Corvusanimus Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2015
I understand, I have studied these dresses before. But it looks as though the sleeve has the ending trim. Which is why I questioned it. It may of been left out intentionally as well which is why I asked.

This is absolutely stunning! :faint:
It truly is beautiful in every way. The detail in the people and the background are extremely well done, especially in the sakura flowers. The array of colors in the clothing really bring the drawing to life.
The couple, I love looking at them. Their facial expressions say a lot. To me for one. The way the man is positioned, his hand held out to her. The way he's looking at her. It's as if he wants her to trust him.
But her facial expression and the way you drew her. She looks as if she's not quiet sure if she should. Unsure maybe?

Their skin tones are nicely done, and their clothing design are very traditional and extraordinary!

Absolutely amazing!! :clap: :clap: :woohoo: :clap: :clap:
