i like the left one (knight) but the shield looks kinda off.... putting another string to hold could be better than just one... the thing that is missing in the right one is that she doesnt have any armors on... clothing is not an armor... putting some kind of armor could make better weapons looks great btw
Yes, hello. As I've already told Eudetenis, I'm very pleased with the piece. I'm even tempted to ask for work with Kimiko holding all the weapons I've had her use, but that would be... something over a dozen different items. Maybe after I have some more interesting ideas for such a composition, or it could be a bit boring.
To respond to this comment in particular, as the player of this character, I asked for a picture of her with armor, and with just her magical girl outfit. It's now my best character reference, so naturally this was needed. In-universe, though, don't worry! The armor is magic. She summons it reflexively when attacked. Not the shield, though. That needs conscious thought. And ideally, it would have a solid grip in addition to the strap, which may be hidden by the angle of the shot. A second strap would be more useful were it not a curved shield.
A slight correction, also. She is not precisely an OC. She was first drawn by Mura Kuroe in an extra page of Puella Magi Oriko Magica, a manga spin-off of Puella Magi Madoka Magica. She is the magical girl who would eventually, (in most timelines,) become Virginia, the Witch of Armor, which appears in that manga. In the terms used where I play her, she is an OFC, because she is not wholly original, but I extrapolated almost everything about her (including her name) as the canon was virtually nonexistent.
Oh ok... so i didnt know that... the idea is pretty cool "magic armor" putting all the weapons might work... if you read fairy tails (manga) character erza uses a magic that summons bunch of weapons around her. Maybe she can or you can use that kind of idea to draw/ask for commision to draw your idea.
