Armor concept by Aerenwyn Armor concept by Aerenwyn
Another armor concept, nothing specific.

I'd appreciate any criticism.

A female wearing armor that actually looks like armor?! My God, what madness is this?

Joking aside, very nicely done.

finally a girl with armor covering her WHOLE body!
this armor is indeed functional

To be honest I'm not sure how well it would actually work but I guess it's better than a chainmail bikini :D

I really like the subtle but cunning decorations on the plate parts of the armour.
My criticism mostly revolves around the fact that, if you think away the metal and the padding, she'd be extremely thin, near skeletal under there.
Other than that, it looks smart and functional to me. Maybe add a bit of plate on top of the shoulders, near the gorget, to lessen the impact of vertical blows there.

Overall a beautiful picture! Well done!

Thank you very much for the criticism!
I can see what you mean, looking at the picture now, some time after I have painted it. She would have to be unbelievably thin. I'm glad you like it though! :)

Yes, your texturing and colours are really pleasing to the eye.

Please do keep up the good work!

I really like the placement of plate, chain and leather (which I assume is probably boiled). It looks like it would offer a decent amount of protection to vital areas (assuming that under the pseudo pennon on the front over the thighs/groin is over yet another set of chain or plates) and I really oddly enjoy the leather in between the "chest plates" - it's a silly detail but I know an SCA female fighter who used to complain to me about women wearing plate and the various discomforts due to lack of movement for.. *ahem* moveable chest areas. It sounded rather painful. Having the plates with thickened leather between would probably do a lot to alleviate it.

Th only thing I can say anything not positive about is the legs, which I'm assuming are a fade away/left intentionally incomplete... given the amount of detail given to the rest.

Really it's beautiful, and you choice of colour palette really brings out her expression-which-while not armor-does tend to lend more weight to any such artwork. A blank faced armor doll is just not as interesting.
