I wanted to do something equal parts nouveau and cartoon to print out as one of my sketchbook covers, so here's Valeria.
The title is one of her nicknames and has to do with how people see her during her journey. While they don't dismiss her word since she's part of the Dragonblood King's party and honor is expected, people tend to be struck by disbelief at such a young pixie of such tiny frame to be the one making a legend of herself with feats of great courage and skill. It just isn't normal of someone barely past her 16th birthday and quite below average size even while sporting such footwear to willingly enter haunted places and hunt for legendary beasts to spare the people of their terror.
But she does.
for the frame.
