Sieht prima aus. Mir gefällt vor allem der Schmuck and den Haaren, bringt sozusagen einen besonderen Flair rein :D. Weiter so!

Der Witz dabei: das Bild entstand überhaupt erst, weil ich diese Hörner als Schmuck in einem Buch gesehen habe und was damit machen wollte :'D

Great style, great expression. and I do like the somewhat more subtle cleavage than 'normal', although it's still there

thank you for these words! I tried to make the whole design not too sexualized, even if I did not hide everything. But I don't like half naked warrior chicks. doesn't make any sense for me and you see it just everywhere, that makes it even boring too :/

Oh great ! For once someone designed a badass warrior woman without using sexy unpractical armor and barbie face ! She really looks like a real warrior lady and not like a pin-up, which is meant as a compliment :)
She looks proud and fierce, I especially like the little scar you put on her upper lip, this is a small detail that really adds character to her face.

You also created a believable design for her armour and gave her a body type not too skinny. Great work !

Oh my gosh... I'm so late again for answering comments. I feel bad ._.°

Anyway, thanks a lot! Seems like I get what I intended! Even if I still had a bit too much fun with the boobs. But at least there won't be any bikini armour around in my gallery as long as I can decide how I paint my female warriors =) I prefer it to show them strong and not being the perfect beauties

maybe a question mark would have been great. I didn't know it was a question, it just sounded very strange. Well, it's kind of GoT inspired, I'm reading the books right now, but this picture has no real reference to the show or the books. I wonder what makes it look like something from GoT

she looks like the sister of theon that i never can remember of her name and i bet that his drawing was a sick trick from your subconscious mind because your reading the books

I think you mean Asha ;)

I kind of feel like it's more a trick of your perception... I mean, I used leather and fur. Very common materials in Game of Thrones too, but as far as I know, it didn't use their style elements. Maybe this kind of situation pops out, as soon was someone makes medieval fantasy armour with a touch of realism in it. But bikini armour for women is just the last thing I want to design. This still isn't useful as a fighting outfit, but there goes my love for women bodies :XD: Keeping a good balance is difficult

Sehr beeindruckend! Mir gefällt dein Stil. Nach modernen Verhältnissen hält sie die Zügel eigentlich falsch, aber ich weiß nicht, wann diese Regel dafür eingeführt wurde... Ist vielleicht für diese eher mittelalterliche Darstellung auch irrelevant.
