This one took me two days to finish. I used lead pen on paper.

Something tricks me with her upper body -- She looks a little to broad to be female. The shading and face nd hair and clothes and the rest is very nice-lookin' ^_^. I really like her feet, too *grins*.

Hey, the ripped shirt is better than 'bikini armor' (which is perfectly all right; it's just not _practical_ for us battle ajah.)

This lady is really realistic, it's perfect! Only the pants are longer at the left leg, though. I luve your work!

Sarah, if this is what you did in 2001 I would love to see what you can do now Great detail on all your work!

You have some really gorgeous work here, and this piece is no exception. I should have commented earlier, but this one buggs me a bit.

Everything about it is lovely, for all the reason everyone else has mentioned, however if the sword was at that angle, she would be cutting herself.

This is an absolutely fabulous drawing! I'm completely speechless. I love that she looks so powerful. I love that she's muscular and so obviously a warrior, but she's not a stereotypical one. KUDOS!

I like that the sword is at that angle. It makes her look extremely tough and ready without being too masculine. Great job catching war and lady so beautifully in one picture!

I love this... I disagree that she is too broad to be a woman: I myself happen to have football player shoulders and I still look like a "woman" if you can look pass the arms and legs a mile long and toothpick thin from teenage metabolism... *ahem*

Anyway, she is powerfully built and still feminine: I think that the dainty feet really do it. However, the only thing that bothered me were her abdominal muscles. Women really do not develop the "six pack" that men do. Instead, their muscles tend to be a little more streamlined and less bulky. They only develop the really hard, ball-like muscles if they are insanely buff (making them a little grotesque)... She really doesn't look that built up, so the muscles are a little out of place.

Other than that, I love this picture. I hope that I didn't sound rude or flamy.
