    Update:

    I'm not liking this anymore or may be just sick of looking at it. Nuts bolts and few loose ends and refining left to do. Feedback?

    Mózg mi wyparował

    Rhdnor - nice old school atmosphere, the characters have their charm, the colors are too strong - try to neutralize background or characters. I can also specify whether the girl is standing or sitting.
    Stinkfist - as for me some kind of too dark. Little girl also hard to seen. In comparison to the robot she seems to be boring. I like the interaction between them.
    Khokha - I understand you very wall. I would swapped the color of light at the girls on other than green, so it really blend with each other. Her face, it seems too unnatural. Guardian is cool, it reminds me of a really big dog.
    devilminer - I have nothing wise to say, at most: I do not see clearly guardian.
    elephant's stroke - Aoife fabric on the body is placed oddly. Both of them at the moment seem to come from a different story

    I have no idea on the background for my work, it came out the plastic than I intended.

    chocha - This is nicely done. The rimlighting is too strong though, given the light source. I like the look Aoife is giving the guardian, as it in turn stares off stoically into the distance.

    Stinkfist - Very cute piece. An issue with the girl is that the top of her skull is missing, which can be a tad distracting. I suggest also lowering the overall saturation, and particularly that of the background directly behind the characters, as it's stealing their focus.

    Rhdnor - I quite like this one. Only thing that really bothers me is the robot's pose: I think it's supposed to be sitting down, but he doesn't seem properly grounded, so it looks instead like he's squatting to take a dump

    limbox - That's a cool idea, but I'm not sure I understand the guardian's body structure. It also doesn't look very mechanical.

    Kahel - Cool design! Very unique for both the guardian and Aoife. I'm not sure how I feel about the guardian being almost entirely in profile, but that could work with this concept. I hope you get to finish this one.

    Intothevoid & Limbox thanks for pointing out the obvious, after staring at the same thing for 2 weeks I couldn't really tell what was bugging me.

    I joining this challenge terribly late. Might be able to finish it but I fear that it's not to be.

    This Aoife is a modern day sorceress that makes use of modern weapons in addition to spells and potions. She's ended up on the run from all the people that want to use her power for their own ends. Her outfit is just a mix of what she had on at the time and the stuff she's been able to steal off of the people chasing her.

    The guardian is a strange machine and ancient, so it mixes organic elements with plate armor-like exoskeleton and leather straps. It's one eye signifies it's singular purpose. Since it's primary function is protection I made it round and soft in shape so it would seem less threatening.

    The characters are a sort of odd couple in my interpretation. I initially wanted the girl to be realistic in terms of proportion and clothing, but it was really boring so I added a weapons belt, a gun bag, the potion bottle and scar on her cheek. The robot is inspired by the aliens from the movie the fifth element, wich I always found to be brilliantly wierd.
