THE BLACK QUEEN

The GBNR are one of 3 super-states at constant warfare with each other. It is the hundredth year since the forming of these states. Our queen is a divine leader as well as a military commander.
Her appearance should bring together Victorian and traditional Japanese aesthetics but also take into account the 100 years that have passed since the joining of these two cultures.
1 = divine leader
2 = military commander
3 = victorian&japanese mix 100 years later.

Think I might be as well... been a long time away...
Edit: First rough... She's going to have a lot of art nouveau detailing mixed in with the Japanese stuff. Lots of tightening up to do yet, mainly on the the legs, which look a bit poo... It's a bit rude at the moment, but I shall alter her costume to cover her modesty as befitting a queen. Girls with swords huh? There's a step outside the comfort zone...
A bit of colour, to get a mood... I feel I'm missing the Victorian element a bit too much at the moment...
Final pic. I'd love to work on this further and if I get a chance I will, but time is against me for now. Crits and advice very welcome! Some amazing entries this round, and I really look forward to peoples finals! Edit: Altered the face abit more... and gave her a cleavage!
Worship me with fire and blood; worship me with swords and with spears. Let the woman be girt with a sword before me: let blood flow to my name. Trample down the Heathen; be upon them, o warrior, I will give you of their flesh to eat!

I'm in! Sounds neat!
Thumbnail time! Just a couple ideas. I like the one on the right more. The asymmetry is neat. I ultimately want to make the outfit to look like it is REALLY uncomfortable to wear. I started thinking about Victorian and Geisha outfits and how painful they seem. Anyways, crits are welcome and encouraged.
UPDATE: Added rough pencils. Much better ideas coming through here but now I have a bit more Japanese and want a little more Victorian. OH, and yeah, the proportions are off. :-P Starting on the final pencils soon.
NOW...WITH SOME COLOR! Unfortunately, this is as far as I am going to be able to go at the moment. I will finish this up later this week but I have some other things I need to take care of. So I would love some comments on it, especially the color. It has been a long while since I have used colored pencils and I like them but I think I may need to learn to paint digitally, the work some of you guys are doing in the computer is blowing my mind!
