*squeals* Nicci! *tackle-glomps*

I always loved Nicci and she was my favorite throughout the whole FOTF book. ^^;

She's what kept me reading it, actually, because I haven't read any of the others in the series. @_@ My dad just randomly bought it and didn't look to see if there were books that came before or after it. :/

At any rate, I still loved it. <3 Nicci is my secret lover and you did an amazing job with her. ^_^

I haven't attacked your gallery yet, but if you've not done it yet or never thought about it, it'd be cool to see a drawing of the statue Richard did! :3

Oh no! You have been done a great injustice! By reading all the books and then reaching Faith of the Fallen, you dont get the same effect! NOOOO!!
But yeah I loved Nicci in it too, but in previous books she was nasty and hardcore evil.

But to the artist: GORGEOUS! I love her expression its so intense and menacing!

I like it. It really brings out her personality. Never liked her much, though...no clue why.

Ooohhh Nicci! At first I was like: BIOTCH! But then I was like "Oh em gee, her mom's a biotch!"
Anyway...
Her dress is supposed to have a laced up bodice, but I guess they never mention that in FoF so, whatever. Also, I always imagined her face being more... unemotional.
One last thing, i thought her magic was a bouquet of roses at first, haha.

In conclusions, wow this is so pretty i love it nicci rocks faith of the fallen was awesome i love seeing sword of truth fanart thanks for posting it.

...:D

Thank you! LOL! My thoughts exactly! This is just what was in my head and thought this is what she would look like. Nicci rocks and FOTF was one of the best books in the series.

that's from the 7th book right? they're named in an other way here. I'm still searching for the 8th book.
especially the coldbloodedness is very nicely pictured on her.

wow! you captured my image of her perfectly, although i thought of subtractive magic more jagged, ahwell, that looks awesome! im definately favouriting that!
Reply
:iconamano001:
amano001 Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2006  Professional Artist
Thanks! I've always imagined subtractive magic to be dark and have a consistancy like tar or molasses where as additive magic is bright colored and soft - but then again this is how I see it.

domo-is-watching Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2006
i see where you are coming from, but then again, i see it as all magic is potentially dangerous and neither is really appealing or prefferable, so i would class both as sort of jagged and malevolant looking, but i see addative as sort of clear and sparkling, and subtractive as sort of dark and smoky, but hey thats just me as you say, one thing i think we can both say is that they are both damn good books, which one are you on again?

amano001 Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2006  Professional Artist
oh yeah - as they say in the books that magic is but a tool and it is up to the user to perceive what he/she deems as good or evil...same way with the Sword of Truth, its up to the Seeker to perceive a potential threat or not. Yes, they are damn good books. I am on Pillars of Creation.

I never imagined their dresses to look like that... though.. it does make sense. Here I was thinking of them in plain and simple black dresses... >.> But that would be more of a confessor thing.

^__^ Nicci looks awesome! I really love your SoT art~

Thank you! I'm sure they have other types of dresses that are more revealing than what I drew. In Soul of the Fire the privileged wives pretty much wore dresses with their chests pretty much hanging out - lol!
