Anita Blake by Laurell K Hamilton has been my favourite book character/heroine since I was about 14 and to this day that hasn't changed. There are 3 parts to this shoot. The casual outfit, the 'Assassin's Chic' Jean-Claude styled outfit and the portraits.

Wiki Attack

The series takes place in a parallel fantasy world where vampires, shape shifters, werewolves, faeries, etc. exist. Her night job, and primary source of income, is the legal profession of re-animating the dead. As an "animator" in a parallel St. Louis, her job entails using magical abilities to bring temporary life to dead bodies in order to question them for legal purposes. She is a necromancer, which allows her to control the dead, including vampires and zombies, but not ghosts and ghouls. She is also a licensed vampire hunter/executioner, with eventual empowerment as a federal marshal. In her world this profession involves tracking down and killing vampires who have murdered humans. She is also held in retainer for the Regional Preternatural Investigation Team (RPIT, pronounced Rip-it), which investigates supernatural crimes committed involving magic, vampires, werewolves, and other supernatural creatures.

Blake is very direct, flippant, and highly competent in the professions she is involved in. She is trained in judo, kenpo and knows how to use several weapons, but is most efficient with guns (as the series begins, the Browning Hi-Power is her carry gun of choice, though later in the series she switches to the Browning BDM). She is also a devout Christian which often creates moral dilemmas for the character. She is currently of the Episcopal faith, having left Catholicism since the Catholic Church has excommunicated all animators. She is of mixed heritage, her mother having been Mexican and her father's family German.

Oh fantastic to hear!! I'm happy I was able to do a reasonable stock tribute to my fave character.

Definitely a wonderful tribute! I've been wanting to start doing stock based off of my favorite characters, I just haven't had the time or resources yet.

This shot is great! Looks like you stepped right out of a big battle in a video game and won and I would imagine you looking out over a cliff to the sun rising or setting. :) That is what I picture when I see this photo.
