Girl with Guan Dao (or is it a Pu Dao?) by G4MM43T4 Girl with Guan Dao (or is it a Pu Dao?) by G4MM43T4
either way, she has a short polearm.
i know, i know... i haven't posting, but inspiration is sparse right now. just trying to force myself back to the groove of things.
not sure if costume goes with weapons, but whats the fun of matching things?
i must be in a all-girls-must-wear-boots mentality
actually tried making circular eyes (whats up with that?)
for some reason, i like drawing Chinese weapons.

for some reason, my weapons are Chinese, but my costumes are more Victorian/Steampunk 
somehow it works together

Sorry, my hand flowed in the keyboard and I made a mess.
I love the way u fade the characters into the background and I wonder if that's a setting or if u redraw it(which doesn't seem logical but oh well)

well, curious deviant, i am happy to answer your inquiry for you!

after i finish all my coloring and shading stuff, i add a layer behind it and go to the image tab and near the bottom hit that apply image button, so then i have a duplicate image. after that, i just ctrl+t and grab a corner of the image (while holding shift down) to scale it larger. after that, i put it into a sketch filter, change the color settings to multiply, and a bingbangboom. btw, i use photoshop cs5.1

OOOHHH ok that makes sense. See on my tablet I have a problem with my layers merging together after I save and I have failed to try and fix it :P
But thank u for taking the time out of your busy schedule saving your planet to answer my query

Wow, I adore her outfit, hair and eyes. Great look for a character, she is dressed fairly sexy though not in a ridiculous way. I wouldn't expect a woman with a pole arm to assault me in stilettos xD

i don't like to draw my fighters in an oversexed way, there are other artist that do it, so why should I? plus i hate drawing stilettos, for some reason i like my girls with boots. curb stompin' boots

SESauvie Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
You and I think very similarly on that front then. Ever since a kid I have been very against most comic heroines and their spike heels while fighting...great way to snap an ankle. I grew up as a wrestling fan, so nothing screams beat down to me like a good pair of flat boots and their stomping prowess.

yeah, i've seen some, well, to put it nicely, interesting designs done by artist (*cough* Nameco character designers) that make me wonder what were they thinking (Ivy from soul calibur, comes to mind). even though she's not armored, she's not coming to the battlefield looking like a stripper.
Reply
:iconsesauvie:
SESauvie Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah... Soul Calibur, Tekken and Dead or Alive are notorious for that kind of thing. Soul Calibur 5 fixed it for the most part, but still...they have some issues with what is supposed to fighting gear and sexy time gear.
Reply
:icong4mm43t4:
G4MM43T4 Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
well that most's fighting games in general (im surprised that Hilde has armor on).
yeah... and soul calibur 5 also nerfed a bunch of characters, made kilik a mimic, and changed tira's voice (which made me the most angry).
Reply
:iconsesauvie:
SESauvie Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hilde's thing is that she is a no nonsense knight. The nerfs were for balance, Tira's voice was...a decision... and yeah, Kilik being a mimic was dumb.
