She looks fabulous! I especially like that you let her cleavage take a back seat to a more delineated pectoral muscle- she's very sexy, but you kept her aesthetic in line with orcs, not humans. Well done you! Love the scars (especially the bite!), the fantastic lighting around her inner thigh and left hand, and the facial expression. The only thing that bugs me is her lack of tusks, even little ones, but it's a minor complaint and maybe your client didn't want them! Fabulous.
She is badass and beautiful, I love her hair and that wicked scar on her thigh. I know that you're probably basing the armor off existing armor in WoW, but... it still makes me sad to see the hypersexualization. I know it's not your fault but I just wish we could have some gorgeous badass ladies who aren't designed with metal g-strings.
Yes, hypersexualization is such a broad spectrum that it needs context - in this case my intent at portraying sexually is more of strength than that to be discriminated. This artwork sits right within the conflict zone and easily misinterpret, so it's ashamed that my attempt is easily overridden by the society's default mindset. Plus we haven't even skim the surface of fantasy and aesthetics, those easily invalidate the metal bikini "issue"! But since we live in reality we have to deal with the issues of the real world.
lol. Just for the record, I couldn't paint a thing 3 years ago. The drive? Don't focus on solely trying being good, it's an unfulfilling goal. Think about who you want to inspire - as human beings we can do that timelessly
