Edit: Yes the armor is skyrim influenced, guys. I thought this was obvious enough with the link to the song...
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
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
