Hey, I LIKE the setting and tone for Exalted! (However, I agree that it has rules problems, including rolling buckets of dice for doing stuff when you're using charms.) Incidentally, I also like your artwork for Exalted.
But seriously . . .
Very snazzy pic. I like the lighting effects with the halo, the aura around the spear/polearm, and the glowing portions of her armor. Very eye-catching. I also like the hex texturing for the torso armor and the color shading for the hanging cloth around the pelvis. All of these visual effects are nicely integrated into the image.
I've seen Grant Morrison's 18 Days myself, and Hanami's armor certainly seems appropriate to that book's art style, with its mixture of archaic and seemingly high-tech elements. Hanani has a nice, assertive pose; very heroic-looking. You do a good job of making her look attractive.
However, I'm of two minds regarding a couple of elements. One is Hanani's bust size; her breasts are so big you'd think she'd have back problems. Second, one has to wonder why her armor would expose her boobs so much. (Unless it's part of her character concept that she likes showing some skin?) I'm not trying to be puritanical, and I don't necessarily mind exposed flesh, especially of the attractive female variety (heh, heh). In this case, though, I feel like it doesn't fit. BTW, fellow Deviant Megan Hetrick provides an interesting and entertaining guide on "How to Draw Boobies" at meghanhetrick.deviantart.com/a….
Sorry if that's too much info. I still like your work, including this piece. Keep it up, and happy new year!
