Sirida 3.0 by bchart Sirida 3.0 by bchart
I thought it was about time to come back to some of my old original characters...

I could never really land on a design for Sirida throughout the years. I had a pretty established role for her as a mature captain of an elite guard unit, and a former war refugee who assimilated into an allied country when her kingdom fell in her youth.

Anyway, she's certainly gone through some generic knight designs that I wasn't fully convinced of. Here's my first attempt from 7 YEARS AGO on conception. This one was the most recent one from 3 years ago.

I'd say I'm pretty happy with this design. Gave her a bit of a Middle Eastern vibe with the darker skin, hazel eyes and bastard shamshir. The unit she leads specialize in a specific form of magic that I haven't really named yet. I won't bore you with details yet ;)

Anyway, enjoy! Also, commissions are open :dance:

I can really tell you've put a lot of time and effort in this painting. The shading and highlighting is gorgeous, you can almost feel the cold, hard edges of the armour!

I love the dark, yellow-y eyes you gave her - it goes so well with the suit. Not so much to make them identical, but enough to pop together. : D

I'll be frank: I had the worst time trying to match colors on her! I had the outfit down just fine, but it took several hours to settle on her color scheme :(

I'm so glad someone likes them haha! Thank you so much!

I'm no artist but I'll say this much: I find it funny that the best colors for a piece come to you in either the first 5 seconds or three, four weeks after you're finished. XD

Yep! You either go in knowing exactly what you want, or you have to beat it out of the piece, hehe.
