This started as a paint over of my old Principalis Portrait, but soon became a new pic, I kept only the general pose.

She looks a bit like Elisha Cuthbert, that was not intentional and I didn't use a photo of her as ref :D

For everybody to explain:
INFERNO M41 is a fanproject of mine to create new and alternative Rules for Warhammer 40k.
Its currently german only, but after BETA is finished there will be english rules, too.

Die englische Bezeichnung ist übrigens "Canoness", Principalis ist die Übersetzung von GW Deutschland ;)

Btw: schönes Bild, ich mag ihren angespannten Gesichtsausdruck.

The expression is golden! This is one of the best Sororita-portraits I've seen!

So maybe you have used a photoreference for the fale and then got a little lost on the rest of the piece? (constructive critic) Anyways, I like it.

I wouldn't call it lost, it's just that I put way more emphasis on the face, because the "goal" of this illustration was face practice and sadly I don't have that much time currently for privat stuff, so the rest is a little rushed.

Actually I used a couple of references and I always appreciate critique, thank you!

This really is the pure essence of a Sister, the expression, the demeanour, that glow of beauty that you know will tear you a new one without a second thought should you give her reason to... just simply put... this is a perfect portrayal.

The,"I'm clearly so above you worms!" look of distaste.
Stunningly brilliant.
