Piece was commissioned as a gift art from Opifexcontritio: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/opifexcontritio/
Opifexcontritio is a fan of Taylor Renee and really took to her as a character and liked the fact she was learning to fight and defend herself with the bo/staff and martial arts. He was curious about how Taylor would have come to know such skills and decided to ask if he could commission my character with theirs. After hearing the idea and concept, I didn't have a problem with it. So he crafted a story with which his character, Angel Eyes, could logically meet mine and lead her on the path to learning such good life skills. Due to the nature of Taylor, her world, the type of things possible within her world, this is not canon at all to her eventual story. However, it is still a nice read and you are encouraged to head over to Opifexcontritio's page and read up on the supremely excellent short story he has written for this commission gift. Thank you again for this!
