Imperial Heroine

Some new artwork at last... but first, a big THANK YOU for all the messages of support and encouragement I've received after my last post. You peeps are awesome!

The Imperial Heroine was my offering for the recent MyFX Challenge #344: Booty-full.
Participants were asked to (quite literally) stretch the boundaries of female fantasy and sci-fi character stereotypes, i.e. big gals.
Anyone familiar with John Blanche's Inquisitor Sketchbook will be able to recognise my inspiration for the character pretty easily.

And here she is in all her plus-sized glory.

  1. My first reaction upon laying eyes on the picture above was "Ooooh, wow". Sums up my feelings pretty neatly.

    Glad to see you back!

    1. Thank you kindly, Mikko. Sounds like I struck a pretty good balance, then :)

  3. A very nice piece. As Mikko said, nice balance between two styles!

    Anyway, I'd just like to tell you that you've been nominated for the Liebster Awards! For more info, follow the link: http://questing-artificer.blogspot.ch/2014/04/6-liebster-award.html

    Looking forward to seeing more of your work soon!

    1. Thank you very much, Questing Artificer, for your comment and for the Liebster nomination. That's two now. Does that mean I can pick and choose the 11 questions I like best from both?

    2. You're most welcome!

      And that seems to be what others with multiple nominations have been doing, so I don't see why you couldn't do the same :)

  4. Love this, as others have said, it has a Blanchesque feel but still very much your own work. Fantastic.

  5. I thought I'd already commented on this piece before... Oh well... My memory is failing me...

    Congratulations on another wonderful piece :)

    I was mainly popping by to let you know that I've nominated you for a Liebster award over at my blog Meandering Shade.

    It's up to you whether you'd like to carry it on or not. No harm, no foul :)

    1. Thank you very much for your comment, Jonathan... and also for the Liebster nomination.
      An update on my blog is long overdue, but I'll get to it once I get those pressing deadlines out of the way. Shouldn't be long now :)
