A more completed piece :), this was influenced by one of the recent animated feature done my disney that went straight to DVD : Tinkerbell. It was a surprisingly well done film. I really liked it. The message behind the story was knowing where you belong.

amazing character-- her courage and strength glow. Just out of college, one of my room mates was a female blacksmith. It's physically hard work, and tough on the hands. I still love to hear the ring of a hammer on the anvil.

Kind of reminds me of those WWI (or was it WWII?) posters with the Women factory workers wearing the kerchiefs, and the "We Can Do It!". :-p

I love this. She's so strong and confident but absolutely beautify and feminine at the same time. Great job.

So awesome! I love her! :3 Blacksmithing and mining are kind of awesome. You get a really good workout swingin' those big hammers, take it from someone who knows! -flexes-

I like the message of girl power you've got going on here and the man in the back almost looks as if he's waving to a friend, "Heeeyyyy!" I love Disney despite some of the things they produce.

Coolshizzle! I just love paintings like these where pretty rough strokes can end up looking so great together. The colour and lighting is very accurate, and it sets a whole mood here. Great job.

Gorgeous! Just looking at it I can hear the clank of metal and roar of fire :clap:

This is fantastic. She's kickass, and I love the muscle definition in her arms, not to mention the lighting.
