The Silver Glaive by JessicaElwood The Silver Glaive by JessicaElwood
The nuns of Our Lady of the Broken Heart have a secret. Since their order was founded in the late tenth century, they have kept a lonely vigil over the world, watching for the rise of undead ghouls. The unquiet dead are silenced by a group of young girls: the Quietus Angels, armed with silver polearms and trained to slay the undead. And one of the best and brightest of these Angels of Silence is Alicia Greenscales: she of the Silver Glaive.

Alicia is meant to be a kuudere, this is a very quiet, cold character with a soft underneath. I really like her design so I may develop her a lil more.

Done back in 09

Ok, best way to do this is be fair and level minded, while not taking into account the obvious distractors; which I have noticed to be a trademark of your art style and character design.

Its a definete anime inspired style, but I would also note the amount of extra detail that was put in beyond just merely the character design. The extra designs on the blade, actual speckling to the ground, and even the trees hidden in the fade of it. All these point to and help raise the picture higher than it just being a run of the mill anthro/anime pic which litter deviant art like the results of two horny bunnies.

Also the foreshortening is well done, you can obviously tell that the hands, legs, and ends of the spear are different widths and lengths. They're not overly done and trying to blow the effect out of proportion.

The only parts I would say that appear a little off are the right (anatomical right) breast should be a tad higher and the stripe going down the side of her uniform isnt flushing correctly with the contour of the body.

Those are the only things that catch my attention at first glace, but overall I really do like the piece. I'd want to see line work if there is any just to compare the original design against what using color added to it.
What do you think?

(Sorry. Don't read this if you don't believe in chain mail. I don't take risks.)
WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room

Not to be nit-picky, but technically that's more of a spear (a cross bladed yari to be specific) than a glaive.
