I love, love, LOVE the fact that she's wearing the same basic armour style as the men (well, I assume they're men; can't really tell) instead of something that conforms to the shape of her breasts! Such "boob-breastplates" are a popular style in fantasy art, but they would have been absolutely terrible in actual combat (especially the kind where all the character wears is a platemail bikini, leaving the rest of her skin uncovered).

Lots of kudos to you for the beautiful design! :clap:

She looks like one of the Clayre, from Garth Nix's Old Kingdom series. The Clayre are blonde women who live in a fortress in the glacier. They see the future, and take care of themselves. There is a Captain of the Guard who is mentioned several times in the 2nd book (Lirael) so I thought it was meant to be her until I read some of the comments.

This is such a lovely piece of art. I love your other concept art too, it's beautiful. Is this just for your own project or is it part of a trading card series or the like?
