Uh... well. Lesson learned... it's usually a good idea to make sure the paper you draw on fits into your scanner if you think you're ever going to scan up the drawing. Well... too late for that. The sheet wouldn't fit into the scanner and I didn't want to press down too hard for fear of creasing -- and not to mention 100 lb paper doesn't like to change shape too easily.

However, my scanner made a butchering of it regardless... so to see anything at all I had to keep pumping the curves. Now it has lost all its subtleties... I'll most likely replace it with a shot from my EOS as soon as possible.

Just wanted to focus on the details of the Myling chest armor, with its pronounced neck 'scarf' armor. Didn't focus too much on the face at all and left off at the legs and arms [the actual paper has more; had to crop off a bit post-scanning]. Can't remember what else I was going to write.

Around 1 hour [mostly getting stuck on my old references for the collar].

I love all your work, it's so modern and up to date with what look is popular but you still maintain originality, which is skillfull. But this one, to me, distinguishes itself from the others. Probably becuase it has all I mentioned above but a human face as well, which is kinda rare for your work posted here in dA allthough it isnt the only one. It's a nice contrast between the intricate sharp, geometrical armour (which is awesome by the way) and the soft face and look of the girl.

Fantastic work!

Thanks. It's been evolving for the last 2 years but only recently has it really amounted to anything. The neck collar thing gets more and more pronounced but I'm starting to really like it hehe.

I just had an absolutely terrible dream last night about the drawing getting irreversibly bent.... straight through the middle. I woke up in the middle of the night just to make sure the drawing was in fine condition xD
