~UPDATE!~
Holy crap I had no idea so many people would like this picture! thank you so much for the faves and comments everyone!! It really means a lot!

This is Katsa from the novel Graceling by Kristin Cashore. She's a Graceling which is basically a person born with different color eyes and a "grace" (or an inhuman talent) which can literally be anything. Not all people are Gracelings and if you have a Graceling child, it's kinda bad because if they have a Grace useful to the king, you basically wont see your kid again. If they aren't useful then they are socially outcasted and feared. Basically its a story about a girl named Katsa who is Graced with killing (or so she thinks) and she meets this Prince from another country nicknamed Po. She and Po go on a journey to save another country from their graceling king who is graced with making people believe anything he says, and unfortunately likes to use it for not very nice things. On the way Katsa digs deeper into herself and discovers theres more to herself and her Grace then just a murder woman. Yeah, awesome book :D

now to the boring stuff

I almost had a heart attack! That really fits Katsa's personality, too.

please don't actually have heart attacks over art, if you are prone to them perhaps you should see a doctor?

My family does have a history of heart attacks...

But it was the eyes. I love them!

Aside from the hair, which should be black, this is quite close to what my perception of her looked like! <3

What page says her hair is be black? I couldn't remember what color it was, and I want to cement it in memory. I already keep forgetting that Hagrid's hair is black and not red, and I can't imagine why I keep picturing him with read hair. :no:

I don't have my book right now, so I have no idea what page. It was, however, shown pretty clearly on the cover that her hair's meant to be black. ;)
Hagrid with GINGER HAIR?! That's inhuman! Why?! :O

This is closer to the way I pictured Katsa. The actress used in the novel trailer and book cover doesn't fit AT ALL.

This almost exactly how I pictured Katsa. I love the clarity of the eye color here, they're gorgeous,especially set against her pale skin.

You did great on the eyes, but i don't get the mask

It was just something xD in the original photo of the model she had blood around her mouth and since katsa isn't a vampire, I used the mask to cover it. Plus it adds emphasis to her eyes which is the main point, and it makes her look pretty ninja xD

Tis an excellent portrayal of Katsa. Deadly and beautiful. Mysterious and alluring. This is a book that deserves to be a bestseller, not Stephanie Meyer's crap.
