An amazing take on Susannah. Her expression really warns you that she'll kick your ass despite the wheelchair if you piss her off <3

This is phenomenal. There is a lot of lackluster art out there paying homage to Sai King's works but this... you really captured a sense of vitality in her expression.

Captivating. I love the detail and muted colour used for the figure against the bright background. The kind of painting you can just stare at for ages and wonder about.
