turquoise rogue by len-yan turquoise rogue by len-yan
this time i wanted a character with contrasting elements, so i mixed a lithe body frame and light outfit with powerful arms and a heavier weapon and leg armor (for the sake of those who insist on realism in designs, feel free to imagine the metal elements are made of graphene or something..).
this character can fight with exes, lighter daggers or claws alone.
big golden eyes and a long striped tail (helps with keeping balance) were inspired by lemurs.

this work is one of my diploma pieces. i have reached the minimum number of works but i am planning one more character to make it more even.

Love this! How do you come up with such great designs for the clothing/armour/weapons etc? I always try, but it feels as if my creativity isn't... Well, creative enough :(

Let me start by saying this is very nice and I am in no way as experienced as you but I do want to suggest one thing; there's kind of an optical illusion with the angle of the axe near her hand and the way that it's angled toward the ground. The top of the handle looks like it should be coming at you because of her hand positioning and certain parts of the axe head seem like they need to be angled differently to make it appear it's going farther back.

thank you for pointing that out - i can see what you're talking about and i will look out for similar mistakes in the future. this work has already been released in print though so i decided not to change anything anymore - it will have to remain as a lesson for the future. you live you learn. still, i am grateful for your input^^

awesome! I'm glad you took that well. My friend is so analytical and harsh with my art but I still listen because he's right 99% of the time.

I definitely thought her axe was part of her leg for a while... like some kind of giant robot leg.

Oh man, such magnifique's piece of art and wonderful wonderful character's as well.
Truly loving your style, designs and everything, just everything.
I could stare at this for hours and hours long, truly loving her.

If this was appear as one of the character that's not NPC, surely she would be the first one I would have chosen to play. I really love her.

- Two favorite things about this piece: The tail is damn cool and the axe is a BRILLIANT design. I love the crumbly rock look

- Also: Ahh HAH! Is that a hint of WoW Horde design on the axe handle/ball???

Incredible as usual, my only critique would be the glare in her eyes make them look concave, other than that pretty much flawless.
