Thanks man. Can't wait to finish it either although it'll probably take some time. I really like the hand-painted style, but haven't got around doing something proper of that in quite some time so feeling a bit rusty which just makes it about time I got around doing it.
So here's the current progress. In the awkward state where some things are nicer than others but it's starting to take shape. The biggest issue right now is balancing the colors of the armor and coat. The face is also going to be a challenge as I'm looking for a somewhat attractive tom-boy look of her so it'll be a balancing act.
Additionally I'm designing the details as I go which I would not really recommend. For this project I wanted to try to make something on the fly without a concept which really slowed me down and not that I didn't know it before but it's a healthy reminder of the importance to resolve any design issues on paper before moving on to actually build the thing.
