My half of an art trade with ~jellalxerza
. In color:
I really wanted to take the opportunity of having a character with a sword to try a dynamic pose. I almost never draw characters in dynamic poses and variety is always good. It was fun. Also I drew a nose. Just pretend her sword's blade is completely hidden behind her.
I might color it later if I feel like it.
To possible critiquers: I did not use any sort of photo reference for this pose. If you know where I can find a stock photo of this pose, I'd totally love to see it so it can help me. Thanks.
