Female Knight and Griffin by dashinvaine Female Knight and Griffin by dashinvaine
A piece commissioned by :iconmdkblackwolf: of his character Terra d'Arcy.
'Terra is a hero in a troubled land, and while not entirely bitter or sarcastic, she's not a happy person either. Her lands have been invaded, her cities in ruins or under siege, and her best friend died in an adventure, her captain in another. She gets troubling and cryptic visions regarding the prophecy... visions she keeps to herself. She was sent by one the gods, an angelic being named Mya, to stop an evil god that they had once kept prisoner.'

This is a photoshop rendering.

Hey there, would it be okay if I used this image on my site promoting a modernised version of chivalry?

Unfortunately I would have to say not, as it was commissioned by someone else.

The armour looks great, too.

I love love love this picture! She's very regal-and-judgemental looking, which I think fits the background given like a glove. That is, a well-fitting glove. ;) (Wink) What jumps out to me the most is how the griffon's wing is framed behind her to make it, at a quick-glance, give the impression that the wing might be hers. Amazingly well-done. +1!

Thanks, yes, that was semi-deliberate, the positioning of the wings.

Yay, her attire is appropriate for battle and the weather. I like the muted colour scheme, it underlines her sadness and the gold on her sword.

I like seeing warrior women who aren't clad in leather and iron bikinis.

It helps this is beautiful as well. If you still do commissions I'd love to commission you.

I hope you do more female knight pictures (well especially ones wearing full sets of armor without boob plate (See this: [link] ) and of course without wearing a skirt like this one...

Maybe you could do Female Vampire Knight pictures perhaps? Although I still haven't seen you do pictures of Vampire women in street casual clothes like leather jackets, jeans, etc.

Nice painting, dashinvaine!! :) It is nice to see a female warrior attired properly for combat- let's be honest, a metal bikini is NOT what you want to be wearing when dueling skeletal warriors or slaying dragons.

Metal bikinis are weapons of mass distraction.

Awesome looking character, very nice colours and great character.

the only thing is that the griffin would look more regal like the woman if he had his beak shut.

It's with her, hence she turns her back to it...

Grey Wardens are from a video game. They used to ride Griffins into battle

Guess that means you won't kill me lol

The skirt does not seem the most practical thing to wear considering what she's supposed to be dressed for, but outside of that I really like the armour. It actually looks fairly realistic which makes a nice change. :giggle: I love the detail in the sword hilt.

I like the gryphon in the background, although his expression kind of reminds me of Sam the Eagle. ^^;

dashinvaine Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013
I disn't know about Sam the Eagle before, but I certainly see it now. The impracticality of the skirt only occurred to me as I was doing it, but I like the mixed look anyway.

Skirts used to be manly clothing in ancient times. Especially pink skirts.

Of course. If you see an army of warriors who are sufficiently secure in their masculinity to wear pink skirts then you know you've got problems...

Hey, even if she is wearing a skirt, at least she's wearing actual armour, instead of a the metal equivalent of a bikini. Now -thats- impractical! :P
