Hey, this is awesome! Great action, nice colors and I love the blurred coloseum in the BG. Nice job!

Adrian Ropp said...

I love your work Sarah, because it has such a wonderful sense of whimsy. Great feeling of motion and power here! I love it!

Sarah, I love the colors on this. Your girly gladiator is awesome!

Wow. This is fantastic. Well done. I'd tell you what I like about it, but it would take too long. Let me sum up: motion, coloring, character design, background.

Great pose... great motion... and I love the colors. You always do amazing stuff.

This is the type of drawing that has you smiling as soon as you open it. Agreeing with the other posts and adding- those legs they convey so much movement and energy. Really beautiful

Peter said...

*gasp!* Amazing! She's elegantly whimsically awesome! The pose makes me think of Bugs Bunny and some classical music playing in the background, but the art style is all Sarah.

I was disappointed when you missed last week... you totally made up for it here!

Ditto on the background, colors, and pose.

"Whimsy"? Oh, Adrian!

Is she in a musical production put on for the heads of state, or a battle to the death with a cyclops? The world may never know. Either way this is an awesome post Sarah! Exquisite movement throughout. You go girl!

Stong line of action. I like the attenuated limbs, and the evident brush stokes make the drawing look efortless. Save directly to inspiration folder

Wow, this is inspiring! I love that leg and foot coming down. She even has a feminine sword. I love the rhythm of it, too.
