Wow. You worked so many great details into this one and, as usual, you do it without making the piece too busy. The symbols and engravings on the walls behind her add an interesting depth the viewer doesn't need to see but can still stare at forever. The fire is at first invisible but, when I did see it, it provides some balance to your warrior who, while not wearing colors that bright, has a number of various metallic shades adorning her. The sword is awesome. Buried under and and dark are the greave(s) whose detail is amazing. And her eyes, wow, they are quite literally out of this world. I love the hair; its color is pitch perfect and it has the all important braid.
It's fascinating how you can work with so many similar earth tones and still end up with a vibrant image whose elements are so well defined. This is smoking work — as ever and always.
I know this comment is really belated one but,I have to say This scene may cause me take screaming as well The details and realism of that ancient temple walls,her hair-pose and breathtaking beauty are magnificent Tina!really impressive fantasy work!
For the decoration that is a work of high quality and unsurpassed beauty, I say that it is Maya and of prophecy included is the priestess she has to fulfill the prophecy with the sword. It is a beautiful woman, her posture says it all I dominate your destiny. It is an impressive work my dear redhead, I am perplexed only contemplate such a wonder you've created.
Ah, Tina. Back with style! Lovely image, well integrated into background, nice lighting. What's not to like! Especially as the outfit was screaming at you; hoped you screamed right back! Your enthusiasm just leaps off the page!
So wonderful to see you back in the groove! Don't let the B'stards get ya down. Remember, you're a redhead. You have a mighty tradition to uphold.
