Princess Aria by JessicaElwood Princess Aria by JessicaElwood
"The curious tale of Princess Aria has always been an embarassment to her kingdom, and especially to her royal family. Although born into wealth and privilege, she squandered her advantage and chose to travel as a vagabond. Her black sword, with its silver roses inscribed into its hilt, would give her the name which she would make infamous in the circles of treasure hunters and brigands: Aria, the Black Rose."

A wandering princess with a magic black sword looking for adventures.

Sounds good enough for me ;P

Done back in 09

Also, something my friend Toby wrote for this! ^^ [link]

This promiscuous princess could really use a hard lesson in modesty. I mean seriously, no one should be dressed like a two dollar whore.

The character design is there, but emotion this piece puts off is about as moving as the color beige.

The design of the outfit is decent, but the fact that all I can see in this picture are two massive mammary glands, it detracts from the entire experience. But the fabric looks like fabric (which gives off the impression of spandex) and the metal looks like metal.

Other than the generous bust and the superfluous curves on this kind lady, the anatomy of the body subject is quite good. Although I'm finding it hard to believe that this slight woman could heft such a large sword with one hand.

The coloring technique will be as good as cel shading will ever be. There is not much more to it.

The background is really quite lovely, although it's level of photorealism doesn't match up with the subject's, I wouldn't say it detracts from the piece, it adds to it somewhat. The placement of the subject is well done, too. I could believe that the subject was standing there.
What do you think?

As always Jessica your work is a vision of beauty that just makes me fall in love every time you post something new.

The character is quite beautiful, drawn immaculately, not necessarily original, lots of furry characters out there but the colour and shading is just divine. And your characters though overly busty sometime (OK a lot of the time) are not the commonly seen skinny things with huge boobs, they are more like women than the skinny girls or preteens that seem to be the norm.

The atmosphere of the background is very nice, raises the hairs on my arms as though something is about to jump out at you, but though the design, colours, shading and angle is very good it seems not to fit with the character, her colour and shading makes her pop out rather than appear apart of her surroundings.

All in all another stunning and sexy piece of work, and seeing some new creation of yours is always the best part of logging into dA. :D

Great work but I think the perspective of the pose could have been better planned earlier on. My only criticism with it is that from her hips down the pose looks like an exaggerated perspective view from a high angle, whereas from her hips up she looks almost straight on.

Other than that it's awesome.
