Novel cover for Hits~!

Ahh it’s so nice to be commissioned to draw novel covers!
Even if the theme is not exactly what I work with, I wanted to give it a try to maybe improve and get some practice, because it’s good to go out of your comfort zone ^^
I sure took a lot of time to draw the crossbow, aahh I’m not used to drawing weapons or armors, so it was hard.
Besides that I kept the concept simple since it’s just the beginning… Tried to give it a vibe of “getting into a new adventure”~ Would you go with her?

Timelapse: ~12x speed
Original time: 9h (in the span of 6 days)
Finished drawing: http://fav.me/dczelhw
