Warrior by Aerenwyn Warrior by Aerenwyn
This is an armor concept and also an experiment if I could paint something so elaborate. It took me a lot of time to finish it so I'd like to know what you think.

You can find the steps to this painting here: Warrior - steps by Aerenwyn

It's just a matter of practice; as long as you keep on drawing, there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to do this too :)

I like how you made the metal and background textures, they complement each other nicely. The metal sheen and the almost absorbent matte-ness of the sunset somehow blend in really well. The very deep neck shadows make it look a bit like some hair got stuck under the leather shoulder strap but I don't know what you could have done about that. The feet could have been a bit less thin ( in keeping with proportions ) but based on the perspective this works too. A very nice drawing overall. It's something that could easily fit into a game portrait pack or as an illustration for some fantasy book.

I honestly wish all armor women came this close to having complete armor!

I love those myself, I used to play the game all the time. I'd really like to make portraits like this one day. Guess I'm getting there, you're the second person that told me that :D
Thank you for all the favourites by the way :)

That armour design is great, not only beautiful but also practical. Also that expression of hers is so strong and determined, I just love how you depict your females :heart: Once again a wonderful work!

I hope you don't mind some criticism: Very good, vivid lighting , face has lively,firm character but in my opinion legs(being too distinct from environment) draw unnecessary attention, partially stealing it from important,strong places such as face, highlighted chest and sword (which i think lacks highlights), also legs show some stiffness of pose.
Rembrandt in his later paintings often leaves legs in shadow, only lighting one if the character makes step forward, Jason's Manley artwork for Icewind Dale is made in similar manner, and Frazzetta rarely shows feet too.

Thanks for the feedback! I did try to cover the legs with some dust but it didn't work I guess.. I should have left them more unfinished.. The sword really could use some highlight now that I look at it.
Thanks for taking the time to come up with some criticism, I really appreciate it.
