Project SH Character, Redone

A new version of a previous Fantasy/Magic-Steam character, with a much better rendering and stance. All done in Procreate on iPad Pro, except for layering in and warping the various clothing, leather and armor patterns, which I had to do in Photoshop. Just as I finished, Procreate 4.1 was released, which has *amazing* Warp and Liquefy tools. Sure would have come in handy! Next time...

Her face is taken mostly from Canadian actress Ellen Wong (Misaki Han on Dark Matter), I hope she doesn't mind. This took a long time: slightly more than 64 hours. The first 12 hours were spent on the very tight pencil sketch, which in pipeline I normally wouldn't do - for a realistic production character like this, I'd paint over photos.

I've included the original design drawings for her arm/backpack combo, sword and tracking devices. I really had fun designing them all.
