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.

Cool spear! I want one.

I don't see what the problem is. I think this lizard type looks very nice. The drawing overall has a nice feel to it as well.

Wow I like that spear *0* whats it made of??
shadowisp Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2010  Professional Filmographer
I'm not super against the huge bust or anything, only its the first thing you notice about most of your pictures, which is a shame, cause this is an awesome piece, i love the coloring, and the details, the shadows, and the faint haze of something in the distance, all very good, wish i could finish something with such style. keep it.
humanofprey Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Stunning details on her clothes and blade. And i love the tones of green on her body :)
Nice work :thumbsup:

Interesting pic, especially from a biologist's view point.

Glaives = awesome!

I dunno why but I always like the lizard woman thing for fantasy stories as they always show power, grace and beauty.

Awesome job, the background looks like it was a pain and the coloring must have taken allot of time.

Simply amazing and gorgeous; your art is an inspiration... I wonder if I'll ever be as good as you...
RoninPsycho Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Very nice! The eye patch seems a little out of place, but everything else looks beautiful. And I've gotta say, that's definitely one of your better weapons you've drawn. I like the Celtic knot detail on the shaft.
akaderyl Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2010
Yay halberds!
RoninPsycho Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Actually, halberds are closer to axes. This is, closer to a spear, or as Jessica has noted, a glaive.
akaderyl Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2010
I thought glaives were swords?
RoninPsycho Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
No, a glaive is closer to a spear.
akaderyl Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2010
RoninPsycho Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Hmm...I've never heard this definition for a glaive before. I learned that it was a weapon similar to a spear, but with a blade that was typically fairly long and could be used to cut, and not just thrust.
akaderyl Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2010
Wikipedia agrees with both of us apparently, and I certainly can't call myself an expert on weaponry, so I'll just take your word for it.
RoninPsycho Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Hmm...well, a word is simply a collection of symbols that mean something to us. Define it however you like. I was only stating the definition I know.
PhantomHourglass Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2010
love the glow/shine on her weapon

Oki remind me NEVER to piss her off. I have a feeling it's not good for ones heath. Great picture as always. ^_^

Great work as usual! I like the contrast between the eye and skin.
