Lady Severine by WesTalbott Lady Severine by WesTalbott
a painting done for class, trying to paint more women for my portfolio.

we had to choose from 4 starting words to come up with ideas I picked "Pinup" because I thought it would be interesting to depict an older woman completely covered in armor but still make her attractive, but in a less blatantly sexual way.

This is excellent. It's SO hard to find a female knight with realistic armor instead of a chainmail bikini. XP

Oh my gosh, I love all your art. The constant element of fantasy in your paintings whisks me away.

This awesome painting has caused me to change the way I think about women in fantasy art. It's good to see the subject treated in a grown up way, and not just over-sexualized vixens designed to appeal to teenage boys. I am going to look for this sort of thing when I start to add more artwork to the website for the game I am designing.

Was there any specific inspiration for her tunic under the suit? I'd love to see what that looks like on its own.

I'm in love with this. And besides the armor, I love the detail on the sword, particularly the pommel and the wrappings around the scabbard.

I really like the touches of turquoise-- that's a color you don't see utilized often enough.

Beautiful. And I like the concept...something different than a female warrior in a bikini with her breasts hanging out. The high-heels...well, maybe not the most practical thing for a suit of armor, but we'll let it go because the picture is so great :). The background's cool; it looks like a graveyard, like she's just come out of a grim battle.

BTW, you should submit this to #Real-Armored-Women. I just found the group a few days ago.

Wow amazing work Wes!!! I like how you gave the armor a very curvy design to make it feminine.

Thanks! Your piece looks great. I've been watching all your little dragons recently, I think they may have subliminally inspired me to include a baby dragon in my last piece haha.

Great job, turned out wonderfully. And yes, I think it can take more skill, which you've showed, to make a more "modest" character sexy, in a modest way, lol. Well done sir!

Who says that "sexy", "elderly" and "armour" can’t go well together at all? I'm probably not the one to talk because I'm female anyway and firmly believe that armour can be hellishly sexy, but maybe some guys will agree with me and consider women in elegant armour sexy just like I consider men in armour sexy ;).
And let me tell you that I really like this armour design. The details are awesome like always and the turquoise is a nice touch of colour. I also like how feminine this design is without being a "plate bra" or in any other way totally impractical. I doubt that high heels are very useful in battle, but hell, let’s pretend not having seen. They look great, that matters more to me.

…Apart from all that, your technical skills are still beyond doubt.

thanks! yeah I definitely agree that armor can be sexy, it's just a more mysterious modest sexy that some guys these days don't understand.
