A labor of love and sorta hate. This is a portfolio piece I've done for school as well as part of a pitch for a Bioware assignment in which we have to make concepts for a fake video game. I'm so glad to be done this image, even with its flaws. You can check out my process on my blog over at : [link]

My main beef (among MANY) with video games these days is the severe lack of strong female leads. At least half of the gamer population is made up of females and I find more and more there are fewer games that even attempt to cater directly to them. The best we can hope for that aims specifically at a female audience is RPGs out of Japan, which I'm sad to say, have been kind of sucking lately. SO, I wanted to make a strong female lead with a compelling plot, good character/emotional development and (what I would hope to be) engaging gameplay. /end rant

Hopefully I'll upload some more from this mock game, so you can get a better idea of what I mean.

Thanks to all my friends and classmates for helping me on this pic, and putting up with my constant nagging and bitching.

v a s i l i c a by `lone-momo. The Suggester said: "The energy in this image is absolutely fantastic. The rendering and attention to detail is breath taking!". I absolutely agree. This gorgeous piece gives off an enigmatic yet powerful aura I adore. The scene, character design and motion effect are just impressive.

That is my dream; concept art. Only... selfishly for myself. P: 
Haha, there aren't very many are there? Not very- well thought out ones atleast; they usually are made I think based on the ideals of certain pervs. Its like, where's the real story? who is she? And why should she be awesome and why should I care?

Mulan. She is the only epic female character I can think of. 
However, there are many books I've read with strong female leads...
Dragon Spell, and... Dragon's Milk. Two different series... but very interesting to read.
Nah, we'll create epic heroine's ourselves.
