Dark Sun-Oba of Gulg

This is my rendition of a character from the Dark Sun setting of the Dungeons and Dragons game.

She is Lalali-Puy, the Queen (or 'Oba' in their language) of the City-State of Gulg: Oba of Gulg Wiki

One of the things I've always noticed about a lot of fantasy settings is that they tend to be very 'euro-centric', for want of a better term.  In other words, you never see any black people in them (Do all the Black Hobbits live on the south side of hobbiton or something? ^_^)

At least in Dark Sun there is a one entire City-State that seems to be populated by black folk (but of course it seems like a fantasy-africa style setting, so there's that :-)
