Even years later, I'm constantly finding myself in awe of your art.  I'm also so glad you have this one here...I think Paizo intended it to be in one of the books where this character appears (Book 5 of the Iron Gods Adventure Path - "Palace of Fallen Stars"), but I did a to of looking through my Iron Gods books and couldn't find her anywhere!  The groups I'm GMing through that AP are about to reach the palace, so I'm happily going to be able to show them this soon! :)

Most artists diversifies a lot their designs , RPG books are full of designs of this kind between others . You would know if you werent too Focused looking for pictures of Big cleavages.

What I follow is artists of roleplaying books , I check their works oftenly and your comment was the second most recent so it was right at the Gate when you enter the deviation.

Fancy meeting You here then. This here is a well thought design and armor actually looks like armor.
Because of that i didnt mention that silly double headed spear. In this case combining
those two tips into single halberd like blade would be far more efficient and stylish.

A good Armor design is that one were the armor pieces adapt properly to the Body and doesnt collide in a way they will make Basic movements Impossible ( most World of Warcraft armors are examples of Bad designs) .
In roleplaying books the armors are almost always well designed becasue of that , not becasue they cover more or less , there's real armors that covered very little and Cloth armor still considered armor .

That's true about the weapon , putting a Big blade or blunt head in both ends is so Impractical that even hardly looks good , I like fantasy designs even if they are not 100% useful but those kind of "Double Weapon" designs goes too far . The only way those could work is by making those blades much Smaller , or at least the one in the gripping end.

It's always good when angles go a little off the body, adding some extra protection without adding weight. Most of the times(if not always) having secondary blade facing opposite side is a bad idea,
again, dont use stuff than can hurt or even kill You.

This picture is somehow even more gorgeous than your other great work; something about the lines and colors just resonates like a bell.

Your fan,
