:omfg: oh my God, it's a NORMAL woman! :omfg:
It's not one of those million "girls" with almost bare bodies, swinging their swords between thousands of ugly old males. -.- I hate this sexism!!! >.<
Now this is a normal-looking, not-beautiful older woman with a sword, maybe the only one in the whole world wide web.

I LOVE IT!!!!!! Thanks a lot! :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

... But she is beautiful. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoy her! Yeah especially for the Tolkien universe, skimpy amazonian armor just doesn't fit. :)

that's right, but sadly most people prefer the stupid stereotype of female fantasy warriors and such. Hard to find anything else out there, I've tried for HOURS!!

To anyone who reads this:

do you like to design fantasy characters, or do you simply like to draw digitally?

i need somebody that is willing to design the artwork for the cards and the other elements for the game that i’m making. i can’t pay you for it, because i’m only 14 years old, but if i ever get to publish the game, i will contact you to make arrangements. if you are interested in working with me, leave a comment on elphirstudios.wordpress.com  or contact me at elphirstudios@gmail.com.

also, if you know somebody that would maybe be interested, send them there!

thanks in advance to everyone who wants to help.

the game that i’m making takes place in middle earth, so the style would be similar to Alan Lee’s and Jhon Howe’s, although the characters are not those appearing in the books or films. a couple of examples of the style that i like:

I found this and I thought, wow, the details on this artwork are so great, she looks so real. Especially the face. I know how hard it is myself to draw a person this fantastic! In fact, I can't draw a person that looks so real! So, I am saying that I truly LOVE this. Spencer icon :PCO:

Really cool, I'm glad FFG aren't limiting themselves to just cannon characters. It's really cool to explore these less-known aspects of Middle Earth.

Thanks! Yeah, for an artist these kinds of characters can actually be more fun because they give you a little more room to play with characterization. Though with her, there isn't anything too extreme going on. I really just wanted to create a portrait of someone who seems much older and more jaded on the inside than she really looks on the outside. :)
