The Masquerading Warrior

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

I did this piece for a couple reasons.  First of all, I wanted to get back to the anime style that I really love, and then I wanted to work with my black marker.  Secondly, I wanted to try drawing a warrior that looked like she could be a boy, but was really a girl.  She would have to be a bit slender (and not have the same muscle tone as a man) but still strong enough to hold her own.  Thirdly, I wanted to play around with a bird motif in the armour.This piece is of course inspired by Tamora Pierce's Alanna of Trebond from the Song of the Lioness Quartet.  I really like how it turned out and the contrasts I got with the black marker.  I hope you like it!
