This is my submission for the 'Kick Your Own @ss' Contest. I goes under category three for the traditional art section.

Link to Images:

Attempt 1: [link]

Attempt 2: [link]

To make a note; I did draw the second image last year, but I wanted to submit this to show how much I changed from 2004 to 2008. Also, I'm also submitting a second entry that I did recently to show the difference of 2008 to 2009. =D

Both images made use of Micron Pens, Markers and Colored Pencils.

Now a critique between the two. First off, I didn't draw the first image entirely by myself. ^^; The concept is mine, as is the horrible figure and coloring, but a friend (and much appreciated mentor) of mine at the time [link] drew out the hair and tattoos for me. As for the work that I did, I had no sense of weight distribution nor any real concept on how the armor would actually be worn. I also have her floating in space without an environment. Plus there really is no sense of value with the coloring.

The second image on the other hand was done entirely by me! I actually thought of how the armor would be worn when I redesigned it, and also added a bow and arrow to her arsenal. I put her into an environment and gave her an action of hunting something from the tree tops. She also now has a gesture and sense of weight. My use of color schemes and of value has also improved.

Obviously, there are things I would do to fix it now a year later. But I thought it would be fun to bring this to the surface once again and show the improvements I made for one stage of my artistic development. Plus I really, really like her armor design and concept! =D

And ya'll know the drill!! Please do not use, borrow, distribute or reproduce without my distinct permission. Thanks you so much!

so... pretty... love the costume design and the colors, very earthy.

Thanks! =D Earthy was my goal since I wanted her to be able to camouflage!

Thanks! =D That was the intention so she could camouflage better!
