Amra and Iria by tjota Amra and Iria by tjota
Another work for Paul Leone (paul-leone.com/) :iconvaryar77:
click here to see the steps: www.artstation.com/artwork/amr…

I was given a degree of freedom here, so I went for how I like it best :D
Amra is the taller, more bad-ass-but-beautiful elf warrioress with dark hair and attitude.
Face is based on EveBeauregard
Her armor and weapon is a hybrid between phoenix-based elven design and real world medieval knight armor.
The studies I had to do was ouchie.
Bits of influence from Skyrim and Dragon Age there.
Iria is the human spellcaster. Paul wants to make her look more thief/rogue rather than the usual mage garment.
I was given a choice for the spell too! not many people do ice powers, so there you go :D

How did you learn how to draw/shade armor?

tjota Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
hi ! erm.. the short answer is.... one by one. lol
well , i studied real armor plates and how they reflect light, memorise it and just apply it every time i render shiny metal.
i use photo references, of course! ^^

Well you do a fantastic job!! This is the best metal work I've seen on DA so far! How long did it take you to be at this level (and do you have speedpaints or tutorials that I can look at)?

Lol sorry for the bombardment of questions.

i started to get really serious since 2012, this is from 2014. i went a bit slow on learning since i didn't have much guide in the beginning. Tutorials? well i do have my youtube account, though it's just a few timelapse vids. see here: www.youtube.com/jacksontjota

It's always nice to see a practically armored woman, but it's especially nice to see a practically armored elf, since elves usually end up drawing the short straw as far as armor goes.
As for the Mage it's great to see a female caster who looks neither like a heavily robed nun nor a scantily dressed stripper, so kudos on both characters

These are amazing works and I love them. I would like permission from the Artist if I could use this picture as a Wattpad book cover that I'm working on right now and this image fits exactly what I need :) If you don't want to, that's perfectly okay :D No worries at all :)

hello~
what's a Wattpad book cover? this is a commission work for the client's book cover too, so the characters are exclusive ;(
unless it's a personal, non-trademarked cover, that is :D

I apologize greatly for I didn't know it was for one of you're clients book covers, it's such an amazing work. And Wattpad is an international writer's webpage, where writers like me can show their stories off and see what everyone thinks. Wattpad let's us do our own covers or they provide us with covers and such things like that. It isn't professional or anything, but some of the writer's get recognized on there and also sells their books by adding links to them and such things like that.
