Could I provide the link for this to my party in an up and coming D&D campaign when they first meet the antagonist? I need an antagonist that is not a mage, a warlord, a dragon, or a god. My party has gotten used to those and bored with them.
By provide the link, I mean link specifically to this page.
The look of her eyes reminds of some kind of spectral warrior, one of the undead who are less than kind in their opposition to evil. I like how you have just a few strands of silver hair showing from the hood that looks vaguely Egyptian. She could be one of Anubis folk.
omg Oo! I mean, man, I just looked at the character you named.. you know it’s really funny – someone has told me that my last illustration – a girl with a sniper rifle looks like some sniper girl character from LoL – I honestly replied that I never played the game, just heard about it, because my colleagues showed me art showcase video from the game… I had a look and it wasn’t rly close, but had something in common (as if I did some redesign for a character in sci-fi setting).. Now you tell me about this archer girl, I just googled it – IT IS RLY CLOSE.. like the hoody and some other stuff.. damn I just can’t believe it, it’s a proven fact that you rly can’t design some manga or anime character without copying some other existing character that you don’t even know, but this is not anime or manga.. I guess it’s just the time when all the ordinary mmo-classes-archetypes designs are so well formed and executed that , when you just do a character without trying to make it original – you will inevitably subconsciously repeat the most successful cliché ideas – I might work on that, thx for interesting observation btw)
once again, excellent art. I like the way you convey her sense of power, and mysteriousness by hiding her eyes in the shadow. I also like the fact that while she shows a little cleavage, she is fully dressed. I wonder why so many of the female wizards, witches, Warriors, etc. are half dressed, while the male wizards, warriors, etc. are always fully dressed.
Since you want the male consumers still be somewhat interested in playing/watching female characters.. There's a huge psychology behind guys playing as girls... U rarely will see some guy who's new to gaming (which is, well.. rare by itself), choosing a female character to play, unless it's the only option. In MMO, for instance, guys usually play male characters for a couple of years and only then can switch to females) Guys tend to relate to their female avatar in a slightly different way as opposed to female characters, they both percieve them as their tool to perform certain actions in virtual world AND they appreciate esthetics of female body at the same time (it's a payoff for not being able to fully associate youself with your character).
