"Through a select, worthy few shines the power of the divine. Called paladins, these noble souls dedicate their swords and lives to the battle against evil. Knights, crusaders, and law-bringers, paladins seek not just to spread divine justice but to embody the teachings of the virtuous deities they serve. In pursuit of their lofty goals, they adhere to ironclad laws of morality and discipline. As reward for their righteousness, these holy champions are blessed with boons to aid them in their quests: powers to banish evil, heal the innocent, and inspire the faithful. Although their convictions might lead them into conflict with the very souls they would save, paladins weather endless challenges of faith and dark temptations, risking their lives to do right and fighting to bring about a brighter future."

I love that you do powerful, badass women without the boobplate. Your contributions into the fantasy genre are appreciated.

Someone needs to take all of your characters, design impressive character models for them, and make the ultimate video game of all time (not including legends like Halo, because almost nobody could top those).

Whoa, is she a paladin? She is either a possessed paladin, or very much a no-nonsense one.

I mean, her hair AND her eyes match the armor! She may as well be called "Kavina, the Platinum Paladin". Or "the Fullmetal Paladin". Or "the Holy Terminator". Or "the Silver Savior". Or... you get the picture.

Speaking of armor... and am sure you see it coming. Congratulations! For making a warrior woman dressed like... GASP a WARRIOR WOMAN :omg: !!! Now GO TO CONCEPT-FREAKIN'-ART.ORG, WHERE YOU BELONG! For real, the glowing yellow parts intrigue me the most, they look like they're burning hot. As is the light outlining her. Looks like there is fire around her.

I am truly amazed about this paladin. She carries a curious, yet solid-looking halberd, a realistic sword (which is not even fullered, making it a bit heavier), a shield AND a bow. Surely she does not intend to go to battle unprepared!

And for the woman herself... I don't think she even needs any of those weapons, what with those big, thick arms and a realistic, strong waist! Then again, she may very well need those for carrying all the weapons, so... yeah.

Her legs seem kind of stubby, especially the feet. Guess it's an effect of the perspective. And those (fortunately, not too high) heels. Also, there is the armor, so it is hard to tell.

Anyway... this paladin doesn't smite evil... she pulverizes it! ARE YOU EVIL??? HUH???


On an unrelated note: how come dA doesn't show the mouse-over parts in comment formatting anymore? You know, the dotted underline it used to have. I leave plenty of them in my comments, look them up.

I absolutely love that the armor doesn't have "boobs". So many people draw female warriors in armor that either does little to protect them in means of coverage or have "boob holders", which not only would draw swords to that spot, but actually weakens the armor.  I like this very much!

I agree with Shiovra.  While a Boobplate (as I usually call them) is better than, say a chainmail bikini, I still much prefer to see armor like this wonderful piece.

glad to hear that! boob holders are a bit inaccurate, unpractical and out of fashion haha
