I JUST finished this. That's the LAST time I procrastinate on a project. Good lord.

This is Rafaela Hererra, a Nicaraguan national hero of the 1762 Battle for the Rio San Juan de Nicaragua. She defended the Fortress of the Immaculate Conception against British forces with cannons and willpower.

And I drew her for a fabulous Tumblr blog called Cool Chicks From History.

I've been wanting to do an illustration series of badass Women Warriors, and I think I have found the piece to kickstart the series. :D

Drawn with markers, pens, and some Photoshop.

Great work on the pose, and that DRESS! Dang, firing cannons in a dress like a BOSS.
