The Lady by NicolasRGiacondino The Lady by NicolasRGiacondino
Hello again, watchers and watcherettes...

I thank you all for the support you've shown to The Sisters Grimm webcomic, of which I uploaded the first page yesterday. We're off to a great start!

However, even when you have Martian Revolutions and awesome Sci-Fi, I still hear many of you cry "When will you post more Warhammer 40,000?" The Emperor portects, and he delivers also, so here you go.

This is a commission of :iconmako85:'s original character, simply called The Lady Inquisitor ( [link] ). I like that. Brief and to the point. Just like the Inquisition.
As I told Martina, this one means a lot to me, not only because she's a great friend of mine and the overseas aunt of Benicio, but also because the image presented me with some challenges. Namely trying to keep some of the flavour that her own style has, whilst making the character my own, in a way.
The colours were also something to consider, because they fit her renderings perfectly, but my style does lend itself more to reds and dark hues, instead of greens. However, testing my limits proved me wrong and these colours have ended up looking very cool.

In the end, you'll have the last word, as usual! Hit that :+fav: button and let me hear some comments!

The Emperor protects!

Big fan of the reasonably-sized plasma pistol. Very well-done!

It reminds me how I pictured Amberley Vail, from the Ciaphas Cain books.
Good work!

I think you have finally outdone yourself with this one, mate. I think Mako85 will love this.

splendied wotk my friend. I agree that the colours are bit of a leap from your usual forte, but worked out very well ^^d as always your work is rich in details. (isn't it sort of heresy to have an inqusitorial emblem dangle there ;) )
I like the detail with the furmantle btw.

Deadly and sexy, the colors match it up well, and the style fits, sure enough. Nailed it m'man.

The contrast between the reds and the greens is great.

I'm liking how the deep, dark warmth of the gun is offset by the cool exhaust vents, and the overall detailing draws my eye to follow it like a labyrinthine pattern, tempting me to check every single last one.

Overall, very good job. :thumbsup:

Zounds, words cannot describe my love for this character.
I need to keep telling Mako she's brilliant, because she is.

Awesome piece! I agree that the colour scheme seems outside of your normal style, but a little variety is the spice of lif, eh?

Now, this is a great piece of 40k art! I really like your style and I love this painting (if it is one :S). What I love the most, whilst it's a simple thing, is the contrast between the reds and the greens. I also think that you're green is really cool, even though you say that it's not your usual colour.

All in all, a great piece of work!
