Almighty Lady of War by Giselle Almeida

I love the subversion in this piece, where the woman is the powerful figure and the men are just there for decoration. I particularly love how the woman’s drawn to be big and bulky in the way that typical male knights are depicted. And we’ve got a boob and butt pose on the boy on the left. Nice.

The overall piece has good color and value contrast, with the eye immediately being drawn to the heroic knight. The fact that her armor doesn’t hint at her body shape at all really works for me. I feel like if the armor was more body-hugging and curvy, it wouldn’t work as well with the overall shapes. I want this as a poster on my wall.

I also recommend checking out the artist’s gallery. They have a lot of interesting character concepts and illustrations.
