Hi all, I've been crazy busy finishing up at the studio with Marvel Ultimate Alliance (will have a big download of images created for that as soon as legal clears. I decided to revisit this piece, based on all of the crits and comments sent in about it.
I added some tweaks to lighting, details to her armorand the dead portion of her face so it reads better. I redid the sky in the backdrop to be more congruent with the overall piece and punched up some core shadows and secondary light sources as well.
The writing in the bottom I also changed from English to Norse Ruins. For those who don't read Nordic symbols all that often- It is basically the name of Balder -the god that Hel waits most patiently for to fill that headstone.
I also worked on the helmet quite a bit, to fix some of the misreading issues and give it less of a football helmet shape.
