I am personally intrigued by the proportions and look forward to seeing the completed version.
Though I might explore different compositions for the final.
Shoulders are a little wonkey. Also, for being an amazon warrior, her muscles could be a bit more defined.
I really like what you did with the collar.
I enlarged the head and tweaked the legs a bit to tone down the bulkiness - thnx for the comments guys spot on ( ill work at lower her head to shrink the neck too)
I disagree...amazon's have thick thighs and long necks. maybe just a bit too long or am I seeing a revised picture? Maybe you could just add those like neck stretching rings that are sometimes seen on african tribal women.
JMorris: This is an updated version where the legs are a little tweaked.
Before they were slightly more chunky
Overall, I like it. Quite a bit. But somethings stand out to me which are...
1. the right hand almost looks like a claw, gripping the...
2. Spear? or staff? Can't tell cause both ends are cropped off
3. Placement of both hands/arms and staff/spear and shield. Staff bothers me I think cause it's a straight on angle, if it had a little perspective I think it wouldn't feel flat.
4.Left leg could maybe be developed a little more, to me it feels a little flat also. Where the staff crosses the left leg feels really flat.
5. Her exppression, what's her story here?
You are a level 8 ninja and even though you have a lot of weapons sometimes your ninja moves are your most powerful.
Im not too worried about what is portrayed in the image, but it seems like youre trying to be painterly but still keep the strong angles. I feel that you might need to find a safe ground where the viewer is aware of your choice in style. Some of the elements are inconsistent with the rest of the work as far as cleanliness and style.
Aside from that, you seem to want to work on some part more than others. Maybe even eliminating those elements might help? Things like the staff are under worked in comparison to the fur of her boots or the jewelry on her neck. Maybe you should be more specific about your staff? let us know what kind of wood it is, dark wood, light wood, cracked or varnished, blood stained?
Chordate: Yeah its a WIP id like to work equally on all parts eventually - colors also but im juggling tons of stuff. This is a 2 hour WIP.
The staff is still in initial stages. Ill keep you guys posted thnx for the comments.
So, some of the lighting seems inconsistent so I did a quick paintover to demo out some stronger lighting. Also, your torso and hips are on the same planes, too parallel, so I showed with boxes the difference between stiff torso and active torso.
At least Icarus tried!
