Fantasy: Female bodyguard

Hi there,

please give me some serious critics about my female bodyguard.

I think you hired her for her looks.

By her expression she looks afraid of her own shadow and her pose makes me think somebody handed her those weapons and said, "Hold these for me, would you?" Also, that sarong is going to fall right off her the minute she starts fighting. I would make her go home and change her clothes. If you want her to be a fierce, capable bodyguard you'll probably want to put her in a more dramatic pose or perhaps give her a look of intense concentration like a Buckingham Palace guard.
As for the drawing, it's pretty well done. Her hands look too small and I think there's too much light on her face since the lamps are behind her. Otherwise it's solid. Are you developing this character or is it just a one-shot drawing?

Thanks for your advise, I would never hire someone for his or her looks I will develop this one further, eventually make a 3D model out of it.

Hi there

Looking at your work I noticed a few pointers.
You have some anotomy problems, her left arm looks bigger than the right one and her right breast is bigger than the other.
The shadow on her chest doesn't look right, maybe you should smudge it down a little or loose some of the shadow and make her breasts smaller, maybe that would make it seem more natural cause now it looks like fake boobs

Good luck

Does she protect by distracting the enemy?

It seems like she's holding the weapons while the actual body guard is taking a bathroom break, kinda like she doesnt know what she's doing.

Also, her breasts seem to be defying gravity(mainly the left one). Although I'm sure there are a handfull of "not so natural" breasts that may look like that, most would have some degree of sagging (only word i can think of describing them)

But keep at it

Thanks for your replies, a new update from me, but didn't correct the anatomical issues yet.
