Shadow Dancer prestige class

This was was of those oddball classes that didn't really have a niche in classic fantasy, and was pretty open to interpret however I wanted. Sure, the classic Paizo level of detail was there in the art order, The dagger, the studded leather armor, the scroll cases, the sword, and the cloak, but the pose and body language were up to me, and with this particular class, I knew it was going to need to look agile and fast, so I wanted to show her in a kind of dance pose, spinning and flourishing her cloak at the same time, in a kind of dramatic entrance (or exit). It's a wonderfully interesting class to draw, full of implied ability and personal style.
