"You see these scars, heathen? They are proof of the Emperor's protection, of his mercy and his love! Dare you deny him, and force me to reveal to you that same touch, when roused in hate!?"
Subtelty is not common in the Imperial dogma.
I drew this character because I just needed to get her out of my mind and on paper, so that I could move on to other characters (more valid ones) that needed to be sketched out. I was asked to come up with a character for a potential Rogue Trader RPG (which I'm kinda picturing as Pirates of Dark Water in The Future while In Space) and came up with a deranged Imperial Missionary. Sadly, I was later informed that it was expected that I would play the Rogue Trader himself, so I came up with a new concept and moved on (figuring that my fellow players would not appreciate a leader whose solution to every situation was "if it can be set on fire, it's not a real problem").
I still like this character, though.

Cleaned up the lines of the Image so as to not doing a late detail guessing and estimating. (I hate that, and it leads to a lot of unwanted compromissing, ie if I showcase armor details then remember the character needs to be cloaked.
Another thing to remember, if your preparing line art for painting, KEEP the construction lines (if your working with layers). This helps with keeping the form, especially with characters like this with lots of layered armor.
