Hi guys, here's the personal illustration I've been doing past two weeks after working hours, hope you like it.

FEAR. She could sense it, smell it, taste it. it lingered in the cold air, tantalizingly vague, yet just enough to track. Her eyes remained closed, relishing this almost forgotten scent. After so long, to be able to experience this sensation was almost sexual. It was her drug, her addiction, her manna. It was the sign of a masterfully laid plan, an additional bonus. She knew she had to follow it soon or it would fade, but she thought "just a little longer... then I will continue."

The sun wore it's eons-old course through the sky, reminding her of how much time had passed. She lowered her head in shame, suddenly regretting how much time she had spent relishing the fear. But a small smile began to show, revealing her thoughts. "It was worth it. It will all be worth it, in the end."

that's my humble offering to this very well drawn creation. Personally, my attention is torn between her and the mountain in the background, giving a sense of expectancy, like she is pausing briefly on a journey.  don't know if that is what you intended, but it moves me nonetheless. 
With the battle's conclusion, our heroine kneels in the snow. Tired, she begins searching for her missing contact lens. Though certain she lost it near this spot, the cursed thing remains invisible against the shimmering snow. She makes a mental note to find a diviner who can cast a finding spell upon her next pair of lenses.

Elegant piece, by the way. I struggle with backgrounds and remain envious of those who can paint them effectively.
It is moments after the climatic fight scene and she is injured. Her foe(s) are dead, but now she has paid with her own life.

Wow! This is very beautiful. I was wondering if I could use this picture for my Fanfiction Cover? :)

Great job, first of all :-) Well, considering she's no visible wounds on her body, I do think she's just done something she hadn't ever imagined to do at killing a dear person/friend of her she have known for a lot of time (a master, tutor, childhood friend). The point is: she is a sort of knight, a some kind of ancient order knight, who had to kill that old friend/person who had undertaken the "dark way" and become a very bad one, a menace to all the free people of the world she lives in...
This is my "ten seconds made" idea :-)

I think I know her story. She looks like a character I have been developing. This would be the scene where the monster of a man who owned her for years of her life is at last dead by her hand, and every horror that had haunted her for years was at last washing away.

Very, very good. I thought of A Song of Ice and Fire.

 Quick story...   Her strength faded with the felling of the last raider. Kalah dropped to her knees in grief over her  fallen loved ones.
