Battle of Bones and Bolts

Entry for Jazza's Ancient Vs. Futuristic challenge.

A cavewoman against a futuristic droid. Who will win, bones or bolts? I hope everyone has as much fun as I did.

Good Luck everyone!

Looks like that droid is getting an advantage, sneaking up on her like that! Visually, it's great, though the intensity of battle doesn't really shine through, there is a notion of speed in her stride, and yet it feels like they're frozen in a motion somehow. I guess the blur on her left hand should really break that illusion but... there's just something very ambient about it, despite the stance, the brewing intent, the color of action. Looks good though! Nice contrast of colors; vivid background work.

Thank you so much! And I understand what you mean about the intensity not shining through. I've been trying to work on that, even asking people what I can do but it's just something everyone seems to be stuck on. It's something everyone can see wrong but don't really know how to fix. I've tried adding blur in other places but it only sees to make it look weird.

But thank you so much on your comments and critique, if you can think of anything I can fix to improve it, please don't hesitate to let me know! :D
