Okay, this is great. I feel like I need to grab a sword and follow her to battle!
Calmly staged and expressive; rococo-like with how soft and humble she is despite her and the horse wearing armor. Nice swooping motion overall for the painting. Colors are on point. Good job!
Beautiful art work here! Keep up the good work. I like how you have the light shining on this warrior and her war horse.
Really cool composition, it is really pretty. The only thing that bothered me, as someone that rides and is familiar with horse composition, is that your horses' body seems a bit off while the human seems dead on proportionally. His head is strangely shaped, and it shows especially in the front legs, which do not connect to the body this way and would not be so wide on a thin horse. It draws attention away from the prettiness of your composition, as the horse is a central part of the picture.
Ah, I see, thanks for the critique. Though I have spent many years painting the human figure, this is the first horse I've painted, so it's not surprising that I got the proportions wrong. Just goes to show that I've still got a long way to go as an artist. =)
excellent work, top-notch shading/lighting, nice colours, and very serene/beautiful face to match with this heroic woman.
nice armour, i might add.(and the stallion was impressive...)
excellent work, do more!
