Note from Keith:  There are trends in fiction, just like fashion or car design.  The trend recently is for artwork to feature “Women of Power”.  A familiar marketing cry has been: “Let’s have a take charge woman on the cover. Women will relate to that”.  Seems to me, that’s a little one-dimensional.  I’ve always thought of the characters that I illustrate as real people and as such, they have strengths, but also weaknesses.  A mix is much more interesting and visually, more powerful. This is nothing new either.  Illustrators have been painting strong willed women for hundreds of years.  The Mona Lisa is a great example.  Does she look like she can kick your butt?  Uh, no, but, she does look very intelligent, a little amused, a little sad, but definitely in control.  That’s real and much more powerful than a picture of a woman being physically aggressive.  In this piece I wanted Polgara to have that appeal.  Yes, she is magically very powerful, but I wanted to show it with attitude and confidence.  That is communicated more subtly through body language and more overtly by the expression on her face.
