It would be many days and nights of travel after leaving the hot jungles of the South that I would come across the first human civilizations that had survived the Great Fall. It was here, in the city of Laodecia, that I met Sophia the blacksmith, the forger of weapons and the slayer of men.

Laodecia's major exports are twofold: steel and gladiators, and Sophia had mastered both crafts. Her youth had been spent in the arenas, where she had become an expert in the paired falcatas. Seventy battles she had one, and twelve men she had slain, and her beauty and her skill had made her a desired bride among the city's men. She had chosen, as her husband, the blacksmith Cassius, who would teach her her second craft, that of the bladesmith. When I first arrived in the city, she had retired from the arena and taken up a life as a smith full-time. Would that she could have lived her peaceful life forever. Sadly, the events after my arrival would cause her need to call upon the first of her professions as well. . .

- Simon Magus, the Last Ancient.

She's beautiful, deadly, and has impeccable balance!

The backstory was like an epic prologue I'd read right before playing a game. (hat's what it reminds me of.)You've got quite the writer on your side, Jess!

I do a little writing myself, sometimes... I wonder if anyone will find it appealing?

Great detail. I like the pose, and not just for the obvious reason ;). Her stance almost tells her story before you even read the interesting text below. It creates a very vivid image.

Keep up the good work!

A lovely pose for a lovely warrioress, I see very little wrong with proportion or design.

Obviously she is independent of her background but obvious effort was made to "merge" her with it and it does honestly look like she's standing on something.

The best thing about this picture though are the nipples. Compared to your other pictures, where you seem to fuzz out the areola, her's seem more defined and realistic. I like these a lot better, and you should work on defining them more often.

when i first seen this pic, i thought o myself "dante, is that an ill placed mole?" then i looked at it, and realized it was dirt. the only real complaint i have with this is the not so tight cloth material has no reason to be traveling up her ass. not stringy, not somethign that would really be doing it. Now i'm looking again, the arm guards shouldn't b shining so brightly in just some areas then go to normal color. you have variant light sources. use them to your advantage, the shadows are inconsistant. sorry if this hurts, but i still love your work

I love the way you drew her face, and the pose you put her in. But maybe you could have used a little less red when it came to the armor?
Her swords are cool, and the background (especially the feathers) look awesome. The color contrast, with the background is perfect.

you could use a little less light work on this one becuase to see the details you have to strain your eyes against the very bright bits of this picture (eg lumious bits and bright colours) very nice shadow work by the way, very god picuture as well i hope this helps

Those swords look simply kickass! I may prefer the good 'ol katana over most swords, but that is a simply wicked design. You must really be keen on swords.
