I'm not used to drawing girls (in fact, this is my first speed of a girl iirc), as some of you might have noticed.. anyway I hope she look "girlie" enough. Either way she's supposed to be a badass. ~3h
Update: Alright guys, I didn't remove the extra makeup but I did make them straight. The face doesn't look warrior..y enough without them.
Update #2: Just realised I overdid it with the unsharp mask the first time, so I made it a bit smoother.
My paladin character Yelena. I guess the definition of paladins is that they are knights who have been considered heroes or champions working for a divine power in some sort of way. RPG fans, correct me if I'm wrong.
I realized that the color scheme and certain elements may look like previous pieces, but this was practice for me again on getting rocks, metal and skyscapes. The color scheme and composition was begging me to repeat this time. I'll change the whole look in my future stuff, promise.

A fairly typical paladin type warrior; had a lot of fun studying old knights' armor for this guy and am fairly happy with the design. Working the motif of his sigil in to the armor was an interesting challenge; and also dark skin is a ton of fun to paint.
