Again for a weekly forum contest at ImagineFx titled Ace In The Hole. Used photo reference from falln-stock [link]
and dragon-orb [link]
at deviantART . both have some really interesting and useful images to work from. So here is the lovely Callisto "Calico" MacKenna grow up in Buckskin, a wild west town that never was in the Colorado foothills. Mother was a noted beauty and owned the best saloon in the region. Her father is unknown but is rumored to have been in the army and now is playing politics back east. This wild west world has a true indian nation on the west side of the Rockie Mountains, magic and things left better not said in front of children and wimmen folk. So when trouble comes a callin in Buckskin, Calico not only wants an ace-in-the-hole but a fist full of them. Makes things more easier on everyone that way. Amen.
Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls
