Gina Nackiomi- Naginata leap slash by LavenderBlade Gina Nackiomi- Naginata leap slash by LavenderBlade
Here is a piece I drew of my character Gina Nackiomi™ preparing to slash a foe with her trademark weapon the Naginata. For those who are not familiar with my characters, Gina Nackiomi is a righteous warrior monk girl.

Thanks for looking! :meditate:

I like how you combined dynamism and simplicity in this one.  The bold and clean outlines of the figure contrast greatly with the softer lines an organic 'splotches' of the background and really make it 'pop' well.

Thank you for the kind words. This character, Gina Nackiomi, is fun to draw. I'll have to show her in action soon. :nod:

I look how she looks muscular! Yay for strong women!

Also, I think the background goes really well with this pic, much better than if it had been some landscape or place.

Yay indeed, thank you! I try to give my female characters a good balance of strong muscles and soft feminine features. This character, Gina Nackiomi, is a warrior monk (nun) and has spent years training in various fighting systems and needs considerable strength to wield her Naginata with deadly precision. I appreciate your comment!

That is so fun and intense. She is so deadly but I like how she feels like she would prefer to injure someone then actually kill them.

True, Gina ties to refrain from killing as much as she can. But if she is pushed too far she'll certainly bring death to an evildoer. Many thanks my friend. It's always good to hear from you. :hug:

Very well done!! Gina impresses with how she is able to wield such a long naginata. I dig your action scenes.

LavenderBlade Featured By Owner May 29, 2012
Sweet! Thanks a lot! This naginata is nearly twice her height. Gina is well trained with naginatas of all lengths. In this piece she is leaping and building force to maximize the impact of the blow. This turned out to be a fun piece to work on. My little monk girl isn't to be messed with, lol. :)

Epic pose and great background. The pattern gives the impression of movement, like speed lines would've (but your pattern is better). I don't know if you've already tried this or not, but cropping the image so that Gina is a bit higher than the center of the image would give the appearance that the viewer is looking up at her.

Thank you! I haven't attempted that approach but I'll give it a shot. :nod: I was toying around with poses the other day and this is what came together. :)

very dynamic indeed LB. great pose, great anatomy as usual.

have to say that background is tops. :thumbsup: i really like the texture you've put through it.

Thanks for the kind words! I was going to do a drawn background for Gina's leap pose but later thought this type of textured background would work too. It was fun to draw my Naginata slashing warrior monk girl again. :D
