I drew this to make a point with a player of mine. He argued that if there were metal studs and leather then it can be considered studded leather armor. I disagreed and drew this as an example. How does such skimpy armor protect her? Thats simple, its magical, hehehe...

Can I make a negative comment?
I agree with all the comments here, but I think there's one detail to improve: the maid's hair isn't accorded to the rest of the picture, its seems you were longing to finish your drawing. Apart from that, everything is cool I think (and that's why the hair caught my eye in fact ;P )

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Your correct in your assumption about the hair. I had suddenly been hit with a case of artist block when I got to the hair and just drew in what you see above. Thanks for liking the rest of the pic though."

Lloyd, this is awesome....I love it....Your pencil work and girl are stunning!

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Thank you Renata! I've always enjoyed reading your comments in my humble gallery. I'll have some milk and fig newtons next time *smiles*"

All I can think of at this moment is this: WOW.

OK, I can finaly speak again, it doesnt look like it would protect much and its not how I see studded leather but I supose she could be a kensai... Yeah, I will just imagen she is a sword saint, they dont need much armor so it seems very fitting. The armor would actualy be a very good defence now that I think about it, Everyone would stand there drooling rather than attacking. A very good defence... Well i certainly wouldnt stand a chance against her, I would be one of thoes that stand there drooling.

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Thanks Ben, if this is what you call a loss for words then I would love to see what you'd write if you found what to say. This is a great comment you've left me and I hunbly thank you."

Omg like this is one of my favorites of your drawings. She's alot better than I can do. I mean I can draw good, but not anywhere near this good. Plus I always have problems adding backgrounds. Even simple ones. Anywayz I figured I would also let you know that I colored it on my comp with Adobe Photo Deluxe just for the fun of it and because I hd nothing better to do. Plus I need the practice anywayz. But yeah. If you want to see it colored you can go ahead and e-mail me. Just make sure to put in the subject like "Studded Leather" or something cuz I don't bother with e-mails from ppl I don't know. And I swear I didn't ruin her. I'm not sure if the colors I used are the colors you might've had in mind. But she still turned out pretty good. And omg I love that outfit. If I had the patience I might try drawing with as much detail as this but sadly I don't. I always get too impatient and end up just wanting to finish the drawing. But maybe eventually I can work on that one tiny problem. lol. Anywayz I'll most likely be back in your gallery later seeing as how it's one of the best I've seen.

2 Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Hi! I am very happy that you liked my Studded Leather drawing enough to color her and I would very much like to see how it came out. Your comment was so thoughtful that I am curious if you have an Elfwood gallery. If you do i'd really like to see it.Sorry it took so long to answer this as i've been very busy lately. Again thanks and I will be looking forward to your reply."

This is a great pic!!!! Wouldn't want to mess with her!

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Thanks Cindi! I spent quite a bit of time on her outfit even though there really isn't a lot of it."

All I can say is.. Inspiring as all He**! Wonderful work here, Lloyd. That armour gives me ideas, despite it's impractical nature.. hehehe. top notch details, mate!

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Thanks Mark, I'm very happy to see that you thought of this one enough to comment on. I'm curious to know though what kind of ideas?"

how in gods name do you get time enuff to draw such detailed pics with two young lads in tow? I am ever more impressed. *sigh* I am so not worthy.

You know; that's something I've always thought might be possible with MAGICAL armor.... that it gives little cover, but because of the magic it does give protection... and we all know that magic armor HAS TO BE hornate and beautiful...

So maybe that's what she's wearing?

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "LOL!!! Thank you. I was trying to teach one of my RPG players a point but I like your views on it a lot better. Great comment."

LOL the thing that rocks the most on this picture is the simple fact that you "Drew it to make a point" and a darn funny one. I'd like to know what you RPG buddy said afterwards. I remember often making illustrated points when I was DMing to try and show my players... "Now see, that's how it works". Very nice art Lloyd and very creative idea

1 Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Thanks again Jason. I had a good time doing this one and my player was none too happy about poking fun at his words but he did like the pic although he thought I was getting too sarcastic, hehehe..."

I LOVE IT! This is EXACTLY the sort of thing I'm always attempting to create!
You are a master!

13 Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Thank you for saying so but believe me there are many more artists here in the woods that I can't even hold a candle to but at least I had fun drawing this one and designing her armor. Thanks again for the great comment."
