...or 'whoreboar ' as my wife calls it!
It was a dare from her - I have no idea where she came up with the idea but, here it is!
This'll be my last 'hot chick doing something' drawing for a while. It was fun to do this and the martian one (on my site) but I think its time to try something a bit more substantial. As I am a huge fan of hot girls, I will most likely return to this genre in due time

Very cool. Only I think her facial expression could be exageratted more (make her more pissed off).
Right now she's like, "I might get home in time for Bill O'Reilly... Oh wait, I really don't like that guy... Or... do I? Why can't I get him out of my head?"
Otherwise, cool work!
That ain't bad! Nice coloring job. Something looks a bit weird in the boar's snout though, not exactly sure what.
Wow nice axe! I like it, but then I would.
It's interesting the way the curve of the axe lines up with the curve of the horn. I can't decide if it's good or bad, but it's interesting.

really nice work. Very bright. The girl seems a little static compared to the boar and I agree her expression seems a bit to relaxed. Still first impression was " this is lovely"
you are getting more awesome everytime...
Nice job, excellent work. Just one thing shouldn't she be holding onto a bridle or something, looks a little precarious sitting up there on that thing.
I agree with ParkerD. The design is cool but it would be better if the chicks face had more expression. She's holding her ax like she's going head-long into a battle and she looks bored about it. It's not everyday you get to ride a bore! Well, Maybe it is for her.
I am also thinking that the ax lining up with the horn is not a good thing.(as Gilead pointed out) The ax angle should have been changed so that it didn't overlap like that. The gal's body, the bore and the color is done well! Cool stuff.

Really really good work, Spartan. I like the the coloring style so much. Some little thiny details are not perfect. Some things are already told.
My points are the beginning of the fingers (the knuckels poping out too hard), the nose of the boar (he running really fast, so make it more wet with highlights in this area) and the right front leg(his view) is to hidden.. i think putting some snow or some more light/backlight there to seperate it more,
it would eventually give the creature better sprint effect. A lil reflected light from the snow should do the trick actually.
But yeah i like it and if you spend more time on it, i'll love it.
Thanks for checking it out, and for all your comments. I really appreciate the feedback, and I agree with the main points. I was aware of the weird intersection of the helmet horn and axe; also, the axe doesn't seem to have much weight, and though I wanted to give her an optimistic confidence in her facial expression, she does in fact look more like she's wondering if she left the oven on.
Oracrest: What can I say? I always strive for flawless realism ...
Sku: As always, bang on the money, dude. Her knuckles really are popping pretty hard, the boar's snout should be wet, and that leg is kind of lost. I think I'll take a few minutes and clean up some of that stuff - cheers!
ArtisticSchmidt: Yeah - agreed - any ideas on how to fix that axe?
Mr.Pale: A bridle or whatever would definitly be more realistic, but I kind of liked the idea that she just hops on and hopes for the best I thought it would make them look more like partners than a person and a conveyance.
Matt Smith: Yeah - maybe you're right, I don't wanna lens flare it or anything but maybe some glints would look nice - I'll give it a shot.
Rjohn: Thanks man - you know I still look up to you
Smithereens: Thanks man! Glad you dig it.
Spud: I hat eto agree, but I must - she seems a little more subdued than I had hoped. - Glad you like it overall though!
Gilead: It's BAD - make no mistake - it is a bad, bad thing that her axe lines up with her helmet - I don't know how to fix it!! Don't follow in my footsteps!
Quinster: I thought the snout was ok - can you be more specific?
Parker D: Yep - bang on. I hate to revisit it, but I think I might want to punch it up. As I said, I was trying for the uplooking confidence thing but it came out too much like a doll.

Very nice.. I would have to agree with the non-expressive facial expression... she kinda looks like shes trying to figure out what she wants for dinner! anyway.. i really like the way you did her boobs...and the boar looks good also.. kep up the great work!
Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd
Spartan, I still really like this piece alot! Smitherines made a good point about the way she's sitting. I picture her crouching down right before this image was created but at that point she raised her ax into the sky.
1. I think if you just make her look a little more angry could help the face. Add a snarl or eyebrows down some.
2. As for the ax I suggest cutting and pasting it and move it till it looks right. Obviously you can't make it further back because her cape will cover it up so maybe make her holding it up closer to the actual blade (where all the weight is) and angle the spiked end down more...
That's all I have.

Hey Chris, just noticed that you posted this. Awesome work! You know I'm a fan of your girlies. I agree with what people are saying about her face. I think it'd help if her face was pointing in the same direction as the boars. Also I think the whole mood of the bg could be either more dark or energetic. Just doesn't seem like it's a battle bg. It's cool that your wife gives you ideas
Cool painting Spartan, clean and high impact , sort of an early Don Maitz look.
I agree with others that the ax/horn thing should be fixed, the cape on that side also mimics the curve of the breast which could be a problem with the conservitive value scale.
I think lowering the arm with the ax could solve a lot of problems at once. It would eliminate the conflicting contures, give the ax more wieght, and lower the girls center of gravity. You could also rotate her wrist and change the plane of the ax blade from the vertical to the horizontal, but if you did that i would bring her other arm back for a two handed grip.
Other then that, your getting a halo between the foreground and background figures thats a little distracting, significantly where it disrupts the flow of the clouds (between the boars ear and the girls torso.)
Girls with animals always make JERI happy.
Do I get to dare you as well? What I wanna see is girl with crow(s).
Nice Job Spartan! I think you have a refreshingly clean style. I like hoe you can still see pencil in places but it doesnt look unfinished.
I don't spellcheck...
Cool pic. Nice, um, action there up front. dig the phallic rock tower in the background.
Crazy cool stuff, man. You know, I always end up looking at these women thinking, damn, if only more women looked like that. Then I see artists give them such a "youthful" face and I feel like I'm having a bout with pedophilia.
Basically, maybe she could look a little older facially? Hell, maybe that's just crap advice.
He who asks is a fool for five minutes,
but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.
Sorry to threadjack... but this made me laugh out loud...Originally Posted by ParkerDRight now she's like, "I might get home in time for Bill O'Reilly... Oh wait, I really don't like that guy... Or... do I? Why can't I get him out of my head?"
And to stay on topic...
Nice movement, and overall good composition... it does kind of grate on my pet-peeve about buxom barely dressed warrior chicks... but I guess that's the genre you're going for.
Very cool drawing, I agree about the expression needing some energy. Maybe shes angry or in a hurry. Then again maybe shes managed to see something offscreen which caught her attention.
