I've only been on this series for about 4 months, and have been looking at art for it for even less time, but this is by FAR the best depiction of Anita I've seen yet.

Best Anita I've seen yet! Most forget her scars...which is such a large part of her! The face is perfect! The character is mexican and german, and you show that beautifully!!

This actually is one of the better portrayals I`ve seen of Anita Blake:Vampire Hunter.You`re right,it can be hard to be attractive with scars,but you pulled it off for Anita Blake here.

better than a lot of the official ones, IMHO, which look like Anita is made of superhero material.

Beautiful, just beautiful. I usually visualize what is described in the books with a different look for her than the comics one, but this is great. By the way, great work on the scars. I know from experience it's hard to make someone look attractive while drawing them scars.

Yay, Anita. :) She's one of my favorite literary characters ever. I like how you made the left arm more scarred than the right. Hooray for attention to detail. :) Great job, thanks for sharing this with us.

I don't know. I stopped reading the series a while back, so I wasn't really thinking about it. I remember planning on painting Asher, I probably will eventually :)

Glad you liked the picture, by the way :)
