Does Not Illustrate: Archer Archetype get usage counts

Link?
Duck, can you imagine anything that would show the archetype of calm, self-possessed, and analytical? It's not an easy one to find a picture for. We could vote on what we have.

EDIT: this might be a better picture of Katniss.

No, the other one.
[up][up]He might work, but not that shot. I like this a little better, but not a lot.

[up]Her expression is a bit hard to see.

And yes, I can imagine something. There are several suggestions that make a passable job at it, though I probably still prefer the current one. I do know several that could fit (like Hank from the D&D cartoon, most elves, several FF archers, Zelda, etc), but finding a good image is harder. It's not easy to find a great image, but to find one that illustrates the trope is still possible. Literature examples don't tend to have good pictures.

Not sure about these, but anyway:

Diablo: Rogue, Amazon.

Assassin's Creed: Looks calm, but that's it.

Male archer looks kind of okay, though permission is probably needed.

Probably not.

[up] That Link pic is a little better, for being sharper if nothing else. The Amazon pic is decent, too.

Even though her expression is a bit hard to see, it think my suggestion from 27 of Katniss might be the best. She's armed and hiding like a stealthy hunter. That says "calm, self-possessed, and analytical" to me.

No, the other one.
She's hiding?

She's waiting patiently behind the tree so the animal won't see her. Her bow is ready to shoot but she's calculating the best moment to shoot the arrow.

Are we going to vote on an image?

Call me Lekk, for short
why is that page not even indexed?

Because during the rename, the wicks were moved over alphabetically instead of index first.

How's this?
It's no worse than the current. It's difficult to find something that says, "calm, self-possessed, and analytical."

Bump

It's been a month since anyone but me has said anything here. Should we just close it and keep what we currently have?

Second.

Wouldn't bother me. Anyone else?
