Right now, creating photorealistic artworks is possible with the aid of powerful graphic software. Among the most popular of these software are Photoshop, Illustrator and the powerful 3d modeling and animation tools, 3ds Max and Maya. With the improved graphic and animation technology comes the introduction of high-quality 3d fantasy games.
These kind of new entertainment became an instant hit which led to the production of more games and even movies of such kind. Before these artworks become animated figures however, they were first drawn and rendered in realistic appearance. There are many tutorials for digital paintings in the web thus, artists have the convenience of learning it at their own pace. Oftentimes, these illustrations and digital paintings portray medieval or some ancient warfare concepts with sword wielding and armor clad warriors as protagonists.
In general, you will notice a stereotypical depiction of heroes as extremely muscular beings with extraneous accessories and intricate armor plates as the ideal. In female warriors on the other hand, you will notice a ubiquitous portrayal of women as skimpily clad vixens, with uncommonly large frontal appendage, holding oversized swords or battle axes. In real life, such kind of physique is a rarity and such outfit was unlikely to have been actually worn in combat even in ancient times, which perhaps make them, as they are – matters of pure fantasy. Even then, we heard of some quarters saying that such depiction of women is tantamount of making them sexual objects rather than fierce combat warriors as they should be in the context. Whatever your take on the subject please share with us your thoughts. Meanwhile, here are some of the female warrior illustrations and digital paintings which are beautifully designed, creative, and which really do justice to their role as warriors, without being prudish nor too revealing on their outfit.
