This is my fanart of Ryomou Shimei from Ikki Tousen (Battle Vixens) which is a series about some Chinese Emperors (?) being reincarnated into busty school girls that fight each other till their clothes fall off. It's story is supposedly loosely based on the classic Chinese novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms.
Truthfully I really didn't like the series, it's art was dated,it's main character Sonsaku Hakufu is a total retard, and the story for some reason or another really came off as really boring. I was only able to make it to episode 8 before I gave up. -_-
The fanservice wasn't really a draw for me either.
Then why would I draw fanart from a series I didn't like?
Well, that's because one of the thing I did like was Ryomou Shimei who really struck me as cool when she first appeared in her unique maid outfit while using wrestling moves with a pair of handcuffs to beat a muscular guy into submission. Also her character seemed more fleshed out and less generic unlike most of the cast. She's totally cool!
Also the eye patch adds to her coolness.
As for the picture, I actually drew this a few months ago and just got to finishing it.
I experimented a little with the colors, like her outfit which I first colored in with colored pencils but then colored over it with the regular paint tool instead of what I usually use (like I colored the hair for example). Her outfit is a combination of a few of her outfits she's worn.
I also decided to add a background. Background aren't my strongest suit but I think it came out pretty good. :)
Anyway, I how you all like it.
