This is a prize commission for Shagster on the CoH forums for his mission arc #5909 'Amazon-Avatars' which was in the top ten in the contest I held earlier this summer. Artemis is one of the protagonists you fight in the arc. She's nasty piece of work, hope I managed to get that across :D

*puts on his nitpicking cap* Okay, the fingers pulling the bowstring should be holding the arrow's notch between them. Also, Artie will be in for a nasty cut along her nose from the way the shaft looks so close to her face. Finally, the squatting stance is a bit, well, odd; as if she's taking aim whilst shaking her bootay at a club.

Positives include all the details of her armor and the good job of foreshortening you've done. Having done archery before I'm just picky about it being drawn proper =D

Thanks for your comments, I really appreciate it. The cast shadow of the arrow on her face was one thing I thought about correcting, there's no reason it should appear so close to her. When it comes to the fingers I bow my head in shame. I actually practiced some archery too about 3 decades ago, but only remembered holding the string with two fingers below the arrow but not the fact I had one above it also. I really should've looked up some archery refs.

The squat is just my lame attempt at a super hero pose. Having her stand in in a proper archery stance would never land me a job at Marvel :p

I'll probably work over the hand and arrow once I'm done with a couple of other WIPs. Thanks again for spotting.

*finally remembers to return* If you wanted a dynamic pose I'd suggest a leap-to-the-side pose like this [link] or even a John Woo slo-mo dive :XD:

Thanks and my pleasure! I didn't know you were on dA also. Saw the art for your other arc too, very impressive. I'll definitely try out 'Escalation' this weekend.

If you do give Escalation a try, hope you enjoy it.

Thanks again for the artwork. I'm keeping an eye out for other COH inspired art you do, and trying out the arcs you draw art for, as well.

I wish there was something simple, like cookies or money, to motivate me. Mostly it's just about available time and other stuff limiting how much I focus on actually completing a piece. I have tons of WIPs on my hard drive, some 10+ years old.

Yeah i hear ya. Though if any of my characters inspire you.....ya know....;P


Well put some WIP's up then, i'm a big fan of your stuff and would love to see those!
