Well then, you're very welcome. :D

In fantasy, "less armor, more speed and dodge" is often true, apparently. :)

I prefer this over the threadkini, it lets one focus on the more important parts of her.  Like her FACE.  You've drawn her so beautifully here.  Her expression is raw and fierce, very fitting for the warrior she is supposed to be.  And I am in love with her armour, the detailing is excellent!  Thanks for sharing this!

Jinkies!
That look on her face... I pray i will never see that look IRL.
Amazing work man!
Almost  perfect! Why almost... i dunno.. That body armor seems out of place somehow. cant put my finger on it but its bothering me somehow.

Nevertheless :+fav: Because never before has a facial expression scared me on DA.

It's got something to do with the texture. When something is "exactly something" I tend to get lazy. Too much law and order. Besides I have never learned how to use any texture-twisting methods. (I don't actually even know if there are any texture-twisting methods in the PSP7!)

This is not Red Sonja but just a red haired girl wearing sensible armor!
Why?
Because Red Sonja never wears sensible armor! She often wears her trademark scale bikini or blue furs or a mail shirt and hot pants, but never sensible armor. ;)

Wow !! She looks so badass and beautiful ! I love her hairstyle, her expression. Her armour is pretty cool (I imagined it with a similar appearance). The blood on the snow is really well done too !  :D (Big Grin)
 
You are an amazing artist ! Thanks !

Ermegershomg. Oh my Gosh. No Bikini. She looks like a legit badass. I love this, I love you for making it. I /like/ the bikini if it's a pin up, but when it's the actual character, all I can think of is how impractical it is and loathe it.

This is a killer piece of art. Pun, completely intended. ^-^

It's a Japanese Onigiri. It's a type of rice ball. So yes (in a sense).

Great work. The outfit reminds me a lot of the one she wore in her later Marvel appearances. FWIW, I like the scale bikini but I like the idea of Sonja wearing different clothes in different environments or for different missions and contrary to popular belief, Dynamite went that route a lot in the latter half of her last series. In one story, she even wore a basic vest top and leggings, about as plain as you can get. The bikini's part of her legend even in her own stories and helps with her intimidating opponents - in 'Red Sonja Blue', she wasn't even recognised by robbers because she wasn't wearing the bikini. As for the lack of protection offered by it, well, Sonja's just that damn good in battle, it's virtually impossible to tag her! I went with the bikini in my own Sonja pics but this is a really nice piece of work. Well done.

She INTIMIDATES people when she wears the metal bikini? Quite a woman! :D

conradknightsocks Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2013
Yep! Bad guys associate the metal bikini with pain and backside-kickings! Like I said, in the Blue series, a band of brigands held up Sonja. She told them who she was and they hesitated, scared to attack her ... but then they decided she couldn't be Red Sonja because there was no metal bikini in sight. True story! It's a really good series that, actually, the best Dynamite have produced so far IMO.

She should also carry a bow and a shield to be a practical multirole warrioress, but I wasn't able to add them thanks to the cloak. A helm would be useful too.

Actually, Sonja's worn a variety of outfits- even a blue bodice- but the bikini is the best known.
