Life Guardian by Dualmask Life Guardian by Dualmask
Companion piece to that I roughed up at work today. It's my newest character Lucretia, Christiana's rival, and like her counterpart, I drew her with her hand too close to the top of the shaft. :XD: Anyway, hope you like it.

Lucretia :icondualmask:

Here's a basic design shot of her:

I may write a fantasy novel telling Christiana's story, with 'Lucy' here playing a prominent role as The Dragon to a much more powerful force of corruption.

This is an especially strong picture- the pose is dynamic, the framing enhances that dynamism. The flow of her skirt helps to emphasize both her figure and the movement. Her design is neat, too- I really like the armor style you've gone for.

As usual, your pencil shading is well-applied and adds a lot of interest. Nice work!

Thanks! I'm just as proud of this drawing as I was of the one that preceded it, and I really want to take the time to fully refine it someday.

J, I love this man! This and the Christiana piece are on another level compared to your other works.(as good as they all are) I'm looking forward to seeing both of these in color:nod:

Since you did such a wonderful job on Christiana the last time maybe I can get you to color her again. ;) I've got so many projects going on now that coloring these illustrations is sadly very far down on my to-do list.

It's a good peice in general, but i'd like to see more exagaration in your work. she looks a little stiff, but still a wonderful peice. p.s., i love the shading and lighting on this!

And here I thought I did exaggerate it quite a bit. Guess not. Glad you like it anyway!

Really like this one! The strong diagonal composition / flow plays great.

The only notable thing to criticize, though, is the lower axe blade is visually butting up with her thigh. If the blade(s) were drawn slightly bigger so that they overlap her thigh, or the thigh overlaps them, then it'd be more obvious she's not resting the weapon on her leg. :nod:

I was planning to digitally-ink this at some point to lengthening the weapon's handle (it's supposed to be a spear, actually) in order to resolve both that overlap problem and the hand being too close to the top. But I also loved my penciling here so I wanted to post it in this state anyway. Thanks. :)

By the way, Sally Sprocket will be finished today. Making a public announcement. :D
