    i had an idea about a minoan amazon, (the amazonian and the minoan culture apparently had a lot in common so some believe thats where they originated) jumping over the bull in the ancient tradition of "ταυροκαθάψια" (taurokathapsia). i am taking some artistic liberties with the positioning of the body as, in reality, the dancers charged the bull head on, and leaped over his length using his horns as a "handhold". i might play around with the composition see if another jumbing pose works better.

    here are some further doodles I'll try to work on the character first and then enter a background...probably a battlefield or maybe a forest of some sort, so it looks like the amazons are preparing an ambush...

    Started work on my digital concept now. Took me ages to figure out the right pose then saw my Sylvanas figure on my desk and it was just perfect.

    Not sure if I'm going to stick with by initial norse inspired design as she looks a little too much like Boadicea...

    Another update. It turns out rather messy, but i'm working with a mouse, so...
    Anyway, I'll be working on the backgroung from now, and leave the rest of character until i set the lighting and composition. Any tips?

    First wip!

    Trying to mix traditional amazon tribal with a bit of fantasy. Went with more of a female fitness/bodybuilder build, but not to the point of digust . Still trying to make her more queen/leader like.

    @~baxter: Good start! i think the character looks too male right now, her face and body type especially, she should have more feminine curves along with muscular body keep up, its coming out good!

    Wow been a while since I last posted I have no idea if I'll have time to get any further than this but wanted to post anyway.

    Fascinating work, Elixy, Parsakoira and ~baxter! Looking forward to seeing those develop! I'm not sure about which pose to use here. I thought I'd be laying in color by now. Why must everything I do take so much longer than I think it will? Oh well....

    When a boy was born, they killed him, blinded him or if the boy was lucky enough, it was sent away to live with his father. They were tough woah-men - thats fo sho.

    So we're defining tough as mutilating male babies or sending them away to live with their Dad?
