Shield Maiden by giadrosich Shield Maiden by giadrosich
Size: 11x17
Medium: Brush, Quill and Ink
Copyright Notice: Image: 2006 by Bob Giadrosich/Sharayah Press. All Rights Reserved.

    This was mainly inked while sitting behind the table in the art show at Dragon*Con in late summer, and then finished up in the studio. Two different brushes were used: a #2 for the mainline, and a 10/0 for the finer detail. Both hawk- and crow-quills were utilized for the extra fine lines.

    Originally, this was meant to be a rendition of Eowyn (from J.R.R. Tolkien's classic tome), but I liked the idea of the darker hair on the figure, so in the process, it has become a female warrior. Name her what you will.

    I don't have a clue how long this took to finish, as it was part of a week long inking marathon of ten finished pencil images that have been hanging around the art board (some for as long as a year). All of these are spec pieces, done in-between assignments.
