Daja Kisubo, from Tamora Pierce's Circle of Magic books. For Seagullsong, who described her as "a lesbian mage who can stop forest fires, make living plants out of metal, and basically own everyone when it comes to staff fighting." Again, in honor of International Blog Against Racism Week
for a reference (and to get that pattern in the frame), so this is a young version of her. With a rose made of living copper. Because, seriously, how cool is that?
(Sidenote: I got a tiny plant when I was in New Zealand this past semester, but it had to stay there. This drawing is making me miss it ;_; )
