Warrior of the Celestial Flame by Art-of-Sekhmet Warrior of the Celestial Flame by Art-of-Sekhmet
Edit: Yes the armor is skyrim influenced, guys. I thought this was obvious enough with the link to the song... :P

This would be my "personal" character: an anthro north american cave lioness. Her full name is Pyralis Solara Atrox. She is a combination of all things I like and symbols I identify with: such as big cats & prehistoric creatures, fantasy(weapons and the like), fire, strong female figures, my favorite colors and so on. She's sort of a personal symbol of strength and determination for me. The character is a warrior that has the ability to wield flame as her main power. She generates her powers from stars (such as our sun) , which is why she is the warrior (or guardian) of the celestial flame :B

While I was listening to this awesome song ( [link] ) , I sketched out this image :) --it was my main inspiration for this piece. I pictured her leaving a battle field with her shield in hand and sword sheathed. This was my first time drawing and rendering detailed armor and weapons, it's great fun :) -Challenging with the different light sources, but overall good practice.

Having finished this makes me excited to finish her ref sheet. I am also glad I decided to dabble some more in digital art again. It's always a fun and excellent learning experience.

You will be able to purchase a LE print of this in the Anthrocon Artshow.

Thank you for looking, and I hope you enjoy <3

I'm sorry but this reminds me of a khajiit wearing steel plate armor and steel colored elven gauntlets. the likeness to skyrim is uncanny.

"While I was listening to this awesome song ( [link] ) , I sketched out this image :) --it was my main inspiration for this piece" Perhaps you should consider reading image descriptions more thoroughly in the future? Anyhow don't take this image too seriously. Its just for fun.

I am certainly not hiding the skyrim inspired armor. I thought that was obvious enough with the link to the song :P

lol No, Theyre the same character. I got a bit conflicted about calling her Sekhmet alone because it confused people into thinking she was the goddess Sekhmet(which I totally don't blame them for). I now more see Sekhmet as my "artist name" and Pyra is my fursona's "official" name in her story :) --that way in the story she will have a more original name and won't confuse readers either. I figured it would be for the best.

Thank you :) I am glad you think so!
