Thessa by JessicaElwood Thessa by JessicaElwood
"Come on, you lazy slugs! Keep those halberds up! Keep those knees high! I want to see moonlight under your lazy feet!" Thessa roared. The powerful bovine female stalked back and forth in front of the serried ranks of halberdiers marching in circles around the castle courtyard. "The Orcs don't sleep, neither should you! If they attack at midnight, you should be ready to fight them at midnight!"

Jehane shook her head as she looked out the tower window at the young recruits marching back and forth in front of Mistress At Arms Thessa. It hadn't been so very long ago that she had been a recruit too, in the Paladins of the Silver Dragon. She watched as one hapless young knight fell to his knees in exhaustion. "Corwyn!" Thessa roared. "Get on your FEET, soldier!" Jehane smiled and mouthed the next words along with Thessa: "Lose your footing in training and you'll lose your head in combat!"

"Watching the recruits?" Simon asked. Her mage partner came by and stood next to her at the window, stretching out his arms. "I can understand. I can watch them all night."

"I know," Jehane said, a bit wistfully. "It reminds me of what it was like to be them."

"She certainly is inspiring," Simon admitted.

"Yes. She has this warrior spirit about her that no one else can quite match. . ."

". . . and sometimes," Simon smirked, "her top slips a bit, and you can see her nipples."

Jehane's backhand was sharp, and it stung a bit.

One of two sisters.

A really bad habit of mine is to come up with character designs without giving much though to backstories (or even names) until I am nearly done with the picture.

Maybe I should come up with a single setting and stick to it, to stop coming up with "one use" characters =P Personally I really like this design so I will see what I do with her.

Last picture I did in 09

Awesome job on this.

Critics? Hmm, maybe it wouldve had more impact if the tiles on the floor were larger? They look like bathroom tiles. No biggy tho and its solid all around.

So nice to see this unlocked from storage again. Jess, a lot of your artwork from that period was a big factor in inspiring me to start drawing again, so thank you!

And then there will come a time when the warrior is no longer needed; the wars fought, lost, and peace reigns over the lands...
What now, warrior, having known only combat? What becomes of the warrior now that there is no enemy to defeat, no foe to foil, no thrill of the heat of battle, no need to overcome one's own limitations? Gone are those who made we warriors great, gone are those whose sacrifices, we vowed to not let be in vain. No longer are there the cherished friends, and fallen comrades to avenge, as we have avenged them all. Gone we are from the battlefield, now that we serve no purpose, aside from our instinct to do battle. No longer wanted are the old ways of war and battle, now that peace fill the land...
Some will refuse to disappear, to fade into the nothingness that once was filled with the need to defend, when the peace becomes too much to stand, some may try to bring about 'order' to that which needs none. One accident is all it takes, for the blood-lust of some, may prove too much to contain forever...they may lose their way, and possibly become that which they vowed to defeat all those years ago...all because of this 'peace' we have fought for? For what good is it to we, the ones who know only of war and victory and death?
"...good god, what have I done??"

The cycle begins anew.

(Seriously, wtf am I on? Ohhh, 4am, and caffeine...figures XD)
I rambled enough as it is, sorry about that, Ms. Elwood! I love the art as always :ashamed:
Good morning everyone! n_n;

What a big axe.
I like axes.
I hope you draw a rocker monster chick one of this days.

Not entirely random remark.

I like so much of the hips shape!!
So curvy and chunky!! ^^
Schazmen Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2010
Just by looking at her (not to mention the short story under), I can tell that she's skilled with that axe of hers. But she's also drop-dead gorgeous, and that makes her all the more dangerous.
Yumell Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Nice colors ^_^ and so sexy character! congrats!
