Luyinda Ngozulu, a Bayombi huntress, has grown worried for her little brother Mayele's safety. As their community's healer, Mayele has gone off to collect some rare herbs, but he's been missing for half a moon now. Luyinda, who has recently heard the terrible roar of the steeltooth (T. rex) echo near their village, fears the worst may have happened to him---but it may not be what she expects.

Both Luyinda's personal and family name are derived from the Kikongo language of Central Africa; Luyinda is a common woman's name for the Bakongo ethnic group (Mayele on the other hand is a male name), whereas Ngozulu means "eagle" (though in her setting it would probably equate to large pterosaurs). The arrow she's just nocked is supposed to have a huge steel point for piercing tough skin all the way through dense bone.

As for this art piece, I doodled it to kill time while waiting for my parents at hospital. I chose flat colors this time to give this the look of a DeviantArt "character reference sheet".

I really love it!!!!!! The only thing I found remotely off was the knife and the way it rested. It felt like it was defying gravity a little. But overall, this is fantastic!!!!
