A cleric in my campaign. I think I drew her lopsided? Anyways the armor and mace she has are enchanted with strong magics, especially the mace which destroys most undead on contact.

This is beautiful , love the shading the background,
backgrounds are always hard to do, and you do it well 2
i like how you made the metal shine 2

good job 2

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Thank you, I'd tell you how I did her armor but you probably wouldn't believe me if I told you. As for the background, I just kept layering stuff in until I filled the entire page."

A great piece of work! I like her expression; it's very thoughtful and seems fitting for a cleric. The shading is great. Since the background is more hazy than the priestess it makes her stand out more 2 The metal really looks like metal, and very polished metal too 12 It's very nice. Hope one day I'll get my shadings up to your level 2
One thing I might critize a little bit is that her skirt should perhaps have been slightly more "pronounced", that is I think it's a little bit too light compared to the shading you did on her armour and the chainmail. It sort of blends in with the background instead. But anyway, that's just a minor detail.

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Thanks for the compliments. This was my first try at doing shining armor and as luck would have it it turned out OK I think. If your interested I could tell you how I did the armor just e-mail me."

Dennis for your first attempt at armour this is amazing!!
I never tried drawing armour i always seem to focus on faces portraits but visiting here in elfwood galleries
and viewing artwork like yours inspired me to at least try,
and now i really want to now how you draw this since you say i won't believe it...LOL

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Thanks Katerina, this was actualy my first attempt at shiny steel armor, I've been drawing armor for awhile. Well here's how I did the armor, I used kitchen supplies! After I drew out the line drawing of the armor I stole a ladle, a couple of soup cans and a metal wisk. I used the steel ladle for the shoulder and elbow pieces, the soup cans were for the layered upper arm and hand, and finaly I used a silver filigree ring for the forearm piece. I didn't actualy didn't use the wisk but I kept looking at it while I drew. Plus the wisk, for some reason, gave me confidence and I have absolutely no idea why."

The attire (especially the chain maille!!) drawn in this picture is AMAZING!!!! Excellent job...it literally pops up from the page at you. Uber-cool & impressive.

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Thank you, after all the time I put into this one I'm glad people like it."

This is a very beautiful pic. The armour looks fantastic. But as someone has noticed before, her face does not seem to fit the rest. It looks almost 2-dimensional compared with her hair and clothes and strangely inexpressive. You might have done it on purpose, but as a person obsessed with faces, I must say that a little bit of shading and detail could do wonders and make a character much more alive.

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Hello Jelena, and thank you for commenting and for the critique. I did get a sense that something was amiss on this pic when I first drew itbut I just couldn't figure out what it was."

Way to pull off a character who looks ladylike in armor!

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Thanks, it took me a long time to get that look down so I realy appreciate it when someone notices."

The shading on the armour takes my breath away - fantastic!

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Thank you! I'm always greatly flattered when someone as talented as you likes my stuff."
28 Apr 2007:-) Gali Lutski
Great piece of art, you obviously can make a real armour on paper! I also love her pose and the background.
You also very good at realistic shading, although her face could use some extra shades near her nose and cheeks.
Well done!

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "That armor took a very long time and I thank you for noticing it. I also agree with your crit of her face except that I dislike not only the shading job I did but just about the entire thing. Maybe i'll do something like this again but we'll have to see."
23 Jun 2008:-) Andrew Cryer
Very nicely done with the armour especially eye-pleasing.

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Thanks, I should tried to put more effort into her face but the armor just seemed to take all of my attentions."
13 Sep 2008:-) Hannah Angelicus Peat
The armour may be I pleasing but its not doing its job if the easiest way to kill some one is left completely protection free

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Yeah, I think I was concentrating more on form than function on this one."
