This started out as a simple sketch but ended up being a practice session for my sense of colour and lighting. Turned out quite alright in my opinion.

Done in photoshop cs. Comments and crits are welcome.

:) beautiful! the sense of light and atmoshere is lovely, and the whole thing feels very Pre-Raphaelite, with the old medieval clothing and setting. the sheen on the armour is especially nice - and the ships in the background make for an interesting detail as regards to backstory. :)

You definitely succeeded in your experiment! And her face has a lot of character too. Does she have a backstory?

Really splendid use of light and contrast on this one. I love it when studies become more than studies.
