Warrior Girl by SvenjaLiv Warrior Girl by SvenjaLiv
This started out as a picture of Eowyn, from Lord of the Rings. Her face didn't come out right, though, and I'm told it now looks like me than like her. So I guess she's an original character from a story I have yet to write, now! This one took me a while, there's quite a lot of detail in it. Hope you like it!

Thank you! :D And I don't really think it does, maybe the stubborn expression more than the actual features. *lol* Glad you think she's pretty though, I was hoping for that! :)

You know, it could still be Eowyn. You could just say that it's her as a teenager. At elast I think she looks like that. :)
And like FalconFan said, beautiful work on the details.

This is so beautifully done. I really like her expression, almost like an internal decision has been made and you've captured it on the verge of being expressed in a strong battle cry. Very nice work.

I'm no good with words like FF there :D, but I love the detailing! The shading looks really good and makes it look so alive. I also love the expression on her face, she so looks determined.
Wonderful piece! :clap:

Aww, thank you! :D Like I said to FF, I'm glad the expression turned out okay, I was trying for determination but wasn't sure if I'd managed. Thanks so much! :hug:

Wow.... **stares in awe** Details, indeed! :clap: :clap: The brocades and patterns in her armor/vest are so beautifully done, and the shading overall is just amazing--that vest really looks like leather! :clap: Her hair is wonderful (I envy those who can draw and shade curls...), and the expression is perfect "battle-face!" A wonderful piece--and I think you'd ROCK as a warrior! :w00t: ;)

Thanks a million! The vest was probably the most difficult part, with all the pattern and the little bits and pieces - argh! I'm glad you like the expression, I had trouble with her face, like I mentioned. So I'm glad it seems to have turned out okay! :D Thank you! :)
And hmm, me as a warrior... I don't think any sane person would put a sword in my hand. :D

My boyfriend didn't like the idea, for some reason... :(
