Burnt Ochre by Ice-brand Burnt Ochre by Ice-brand
Sheeva from Mortal Kombat, fourth in my series focusing on (and redesigning) the ladies of the MK series.

The Shokan warrior, Sheeva is of a proud race, half human and half dragon. I can honestly say she is my least liked female but I enjoyed painting this picture more than any of the others. Twas a headache trying to find a setting for her, I started painting fellow Shokans which I didn't like so I replaced it with Sindal's throne room which then changed to Shao Kahn's, then to the Shao Kahns arena, then the arena with lots of other fighters, then a training ground for Shokans and then a Shokan army, not too far removed from the original concept ha ha Oh well. The concept of half dragon inspired the toothy pieces to her design and she is ever so slightly less manish, softening her features somewhat compared to her original, standard look from the MK (2011).

Visit my tumblr to see a very rough step-by-step of how I did this pic - [link] :D

This. All of this. I have seen so many variations of Sheeva and, while there are certainly excellent ones, they all look like the classic Sheeva. This one that you made is unique and breathtaking, and shows a great deal of variation that I wish artists used for Shokan. SHe looks like she could be an entirely original character. A beautiful rendering, and I applaud you.

Sheeva always gets a bad rep, but a design like this I wager would launch her into the stratosphere.

Oh, and Sheeva is my main in the game. AWESOME!
