I tried to spend a bit more time on this image than usual, I hope it shows... I know "swordstress" isn't a real word, but I couldn't find anything better to call her :)

EDIT: Wow a Daily Deviation ! Thank you this is awesome ! :la:

Excellent character design! Swordmistress is more proper to assign a character like this! Her name would be something like Hong Jin Do (Red Gold Sword).

I don't know if it is all the red, but she reminds me of Azula from Avatar [AirBander] when she is about to strike. Great flow and I love the armor.

It should be, there isn't a female version of swordsman, so that'll do...

Nice work on the swordstress...

Awesome piece! Love the armor design and the overall detail work. Also an interesting design on the sword itself, some kind of cross between a sabre and a jian?

I guess you could say that, I just tried to make a cool design, but it did end up looking like what you describe :D

I love her face!
It's like, "Yeah, I'm here, AND I'm badass. Who wants to take me on first?"
I'm glad you were able to make her the focal point of the piece, considering the colors used for her were used in the background as well [just toned down]. I guess it's really not that hard of a thing to do, but still. . .

Thanks ! Actually it helps to tie the picture together if you put some background color into the subject.

swordswoman works too, she's great. I'm especially impressed that she's wearing sensible shoes wahoo no breaking the spikey heels for her. The colours are great and the background is marvelous. I love the detail in the armour.
