    She-Ra

    Yes, you read that right. I, Northy, tried drawing She-Ra! I've gotta' keep surprising you guys somehow.



    I kind of was going for a valkyrie style here... Not sure how well that worked. I welcome critiques and constructive comments whether you like the picture or not.

    To people who've looked at my other art, note that this is not meant to be part of the loosely-linked "series" I had started recently. Sometimes a drawing is just a drawing. If She-Ra appears in that series she'll look quite different...

    She-Ra looks awesome, I think you made her into a great looking Valkyrie warrior!
    I only suggest a gold trim on the costume to tie it in with She-Ra more, it would also add just a slash of color to bring the whole drawing to life. I especially like the "wings" on the Sword of Protection, and eagle on the shield.

    I have been enjoying your Frazzeta-like take on the female MotU characters. This one rocks!

    It looks great, but there is something amiss..

    Honestly, and I can't beleive I am saying this, but I think there is too much skin showing.

    I think either connecting her "bra" to her skirt would help, or adding dark leggings (aka pants) from skirt to boot. At the very least, adding some sort of small design right under her cleavage, above the abs, but below the breasts would help the design.

    Cool take on She-Ra.
    She reminds me a little of Teela in the old mini Comics (that is a good thing).
    I like the muted colors, and her new silver weapons.
    Nice job.

    i like it, i think it is more closely related to the original He-man concept than Filmation ever was, they did a lot of "Feminizing" to She-ra to get the girl audience. that being said i still love filmation She-ra as part of my childhood

    Gee, you'd really be upset if you'd seen how she looked *before* I decided to cover her up better! I think I, like others before me, may be getting corrupted by Skelepimp! Yeah, that's it... it's all his fault, not mine.

    I agree that she maybe needs more decoration on the torso somewhere, but I just didn't see how to do it at the time.

    Thanks for the comments, everyone.

    Hmmm

    She-Ra as a valkyrie....Teela as...Red Sonja?

    I like, I like.... your linework and drawing ability has definitely improved in the eight months I've been on here. Your girls/women look sexier than ever!

    I'll gladly accept any responsibility for any of your great works, Northylander!

    Excellent, work! I really like your Barbarian style and this is another great design.

    Great work!

    Don't worry, that version is definitely on the way sometime. I've had plans for redesigning She-Ra like that for a while now. This one just somehow got drawn first.

    I love the norse look you gave her. And her physique (while I don't like girls who are all ripped) looks GREAT on her.
