There are still more males than females as playable characters in video games. It has always felt sad for me because there are many girls out there who want to be able to relate to a video game hero. Because of this I knew from the very beginning that I wanted to design a female hero.

She is a princess but she is now completely fed up with all the princess duties. Life of a princess is so formal and boring! She decides to become a knight instead. She gathers up some equipment she can find in the castle, also using some parts of her princess outfit to make an outfit for a knight. Her loyal companion, a royal ragdoll cat, is joining her on this journey!

This is a part of Jazza's challenge of the month. Here is a link to a work in progress -picture: http://i.imgur.com/7ilvvxS.png

I've drawn digitally for years but only recently I have been interested in digital painting. I wanted to challenge myself and paint this insted of drawing. I think it also gives it a more concept art look! I learned a lot and designing characters was so much fun. This is my first time entering Jazza's challenges and my first time uploading on Newgrounds.

While I think the argument that there are no female frontwomen in games is very tired and parity is coming along well, more badass females is always better (I mean, I really like women, lol). From an objective standpoint though, I really hope there's some plate behind that dress or our hero is gonna be pretty heartbroken, perhaps literally, when she gets run through. Or maybe since she's just starting out she'll level up later on.

The cat concepts are overshadowing the background a little, but I love cats, so I don't really mind the addition. I just hope our furry friend doesn't get hurt!

I never said there were none female in the main role of a game, I said there were less female than male characters in the main role. Thanks for the comment though!
