Maria Ivanova, Mechwarrior from Tikonov, former member of the Tikonov Reserves and CO of the "Maria's Muties" Mercenary Unit. Seen here before she left the Capellan Confederation Armed Forces, she was stationed at The Mercenary's Star (Galatea, Lyran Commonwealth) in an effort to use the fame of an elite unit to hire mechwarriors to fight for House Liao.  While ultimately unsuccessful, the mission did lead to her defection from the CCAF and the formation of her own mercenary unit in late 3027.

The piece was done on Manga Studio 5 with an old WACOM tablet. Sketched from a photo reference with each section layered up from a base color and lots of blending. The Tikonov Lancers unit logo I pulled from Sarna Net.
