Though Smoke Shall Hide The Sun

A new piece for Tor.com, this time for a short from Brit Mandelo. This is a slightly different version of the piece from the one shown with the story. There was concern over the foreground character looking too much the victim (which I most definitely agree she should not) and so I was asked to give her a bit of a sly smile. It worked better for the story, though this version works a bit better for me, so here it is :)

Very nice! More great fabric folds!

The only area I don't like is the area between her lips.

I absolutely love your illustration, by the way--thank you so much! It's gorgeous.
