This tough lady was drawn for the new' Heroes of the Forgotten Kingdoms' book recently released by Wizards of the Coast.

Thanks to Kate Irwin for her great art direction.

Have I mentioned in the last five minutes how much I love your awareness that cloth, leather, fur, hair, and other materials don't just have textures; they have weight and mass and thickness and react differently to pressure and gravity?

I mean, there are plenty of fantasy artists who at least know that chain mail isn't just a flat patterned shimmer over bare skin, but...!

Always your fan,

I really appreciate your great feedback here, was fun trying to get credible cold weather gear on this lady, your comments are great reinforcement to keep doing this kind of grounded fantasy:)

This is one fierce warrior!  I admire your execution. 

Were I thirty years younger?  This would be a must have cosplay for me!

Darned awesome work! I love the density of detail not just in design and color, but in the trinkets and equipment. A wonderful blend of artistic and utility that I can't help but love! :)

You indeed succeeded sir! I find those little things on the side really add a layer of depth to a picture, bringing it to life in yet another way. Fearsome and functional. Gotta love it! :)

Ben, this is THE best female artwork on the internet!  Beautiful capturing of a whole story from one picture; you can infer her whole life story from one image, a master piece of artistry and storytelling.  Brilliant!  PS  I see she is also in your piece 'The Kraken'; have you any other paintings with Gwenn in them?
