Well done! Does it have something to do with Game of Thrones?

Nope, nothing Game of Thrones. I started really random and basically I just wanted to use these horn things a found in a book about african tribal fashion. It's a weird combination

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
