(damn ur good!!!dude....first of all.....that's one of the ten greatest drawings i've ever saw (i know it's a bit too much) she deserves legs....i can only think of a big black gothic skirt.....second: you have to make a 3d model:D (someone have to do it)...and third n last :if it was me..i would charge 300 bucks....i mean....when i used to paint i charged like 100 bucks for each painting (i live in brazil so it's not that much - but it's a lot!) and they were smaller...so..that's it....she doesn't need any changes and u should take a better shot, so it can go to the gallerie...seriously man....awesome - front page work!!

COOOL... love her weapon and the shoulder armour. what medium did you use to draw on the door by the way?

How much is the door worth? Instead of painting over it you should take it off the hinges and sell it and then buy a new door.:airguitar

Very badass. I'm curious what you used also. Picture looks a bit monochromatic.

Those are some big-ass hands for such a sweet faced girl...

Thanks for the comments ppl :)
AlteredState & earthworm & everyone else who was wondering, i drew this with a HB pencil.. i'm not sure how its called in english, but one of those pencils u put a 0.5 lead in & click on the top to push the lead out.. mechanical pencil maybe? anyway, i used that.

& about the time it took me, its very very hard to tell.
i started it about 7 months ago, did all the outlines in a few hours.
then i didn't touch it for about 3 months (i wasn't home alot because of the army).
then i started filling it in, a few hours - again.
then again i didn't touch it for 4 months (army again).
& a few days ago i came back home & decided to finnish it :)
i'd say overall of about 8 hours.. maybe a little less.

oh, & the lack of proportions is intentional.
little girl, big armor.. just decided to try it out for once after drawing all the big dudes in even bigger armor..

Really nice pic. Only problem I'm having with it is that the arms look kinda like battering rams and as such are positioned oddly.

I edited your scan a little so that the shadow doesn't take away from the full glory of your pic. Sorry if the edit is a little bright.
