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,

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! :)

I really wanted her to look capable, and well provisioned for the environment, was fun to do. Cheers !!!

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?

Good spotting on seeing her in that other piece:) I don't have anymore drawings of her. She was a lot of fun to paint and I did really want her to look real and not fantasy based as much as possible, she does look pretty capable and dangerous:)

Great work! It's amazing that you have made the clothes actually seem warming in an otherwise cold climate.
