Valkyria Chronicles Paints by Higalack Valkyria Chronicles Paints by Higalack
Just painted Audrey Heitinga (left), Rosina Selden (middle), and Nina Streiss (right) from Valkyeria Chronicles.

I remember hearing that a few of the female soldiers were pretty strong in their bios:

[link]

but lacked any sorta obvious indicators of that...so decided to do something bout it.

SO kinda threw the three of these in a picture, compositions a bit lacking. Main focus was on getting 3 painted figures, consistently detailed. Which im happy with the level of fidelity in this.

Took about a months work in SAI, probalby wouldnt have had this level of composition for a paints in the past, so im happy with the progress made

Anways Valkeryia Chronicles belongs to Sega (copyright icon thingy)

Well Audrey's specifically said that she didn't look strong which is why it was surprising...and I think Nina was more athletic than body buildy? Morning twenty mile runs or something. The faces and armor look amazing though, really nice work.

These women clearly don't need a tank to take on the enemy! Each one is a virtual one woman army!

This is a really nice bit of painting. The figures of the women are beautifully detailed and shaded, and their gear looks real and distinct from the way you have painted the skin.
You have already heard my thoughts on composition for this one. I think the next time you spend a month painting on something, you may benefit from working out the composition first.
Overall, good work, and I look forward to seeing your next step in painting!

Thanx, Jebs

Your advice regarding paints has really helped as well as the critiques.

I'm happy to have started to hit a stride with this medium, and the rough start i began from last years, starting to pay off.

I'll be sure to see where i can go with this and start to take into account the composition before i start painting.

And thanx again for all the help!!

The only hole I see in it is that Audrey's strength is packed in a "svelte" or slender form. It's mentioned in the bio. It just sort of seems awkward to think that it is her.

As for Nina and Rosina, while I do think the are a little overdone in the upper body and arms (mostly arms) it is certainly a hell of a lot better that looking at those pics of overly fat characters :puke:
You've managed to give Rosina a Feminine face though and that's an immediate thumb up.
As for Nina it makes me start looking for either Mk. V or VI MJOLNIR armour. Honestly that's probably fairly close to a Spartan-II without the armour although she's also arguably between Brock Lesnar and The Hulk. All that said, if they had different equipment then ol' Jann Walker would be all over them.

Nice detail on the weapons and on the half of the uniform that is shown. However the dimensions of the barrel of the Edelweiss and the colouring of the vehicle are a little strange.

Okay sooo, I exaggerated on that part, heh heh
Gotta understand where I'm going with this is personal aesthetics towards the female form. And everyone has their own sense of aesthetic beauty and I usually go with the "let live" policy for the most part (even the fat lovers).

And in general i find any fan works will always take the artist own sense of aesthetics into recreating a popular or well known character.

Still thats some interesting incite into the level of muscular development and thanx for the compliments on the uniform and weapons, both were something I wanted to emphasize along with other elements of the piece.

And ye I agree the Edelweiss was added last and exhausted, meaning i wasnt working with it properly and probably didnt pay enough attention to really make it authentic.

I dont' know anything about the source material, so I'll just comment on what I see in front of me, w/o context.

Strong effort in using a paint-like style. I like how their midsections are thick and sturdy. The center figure grabs my eye, probably because of the body angle and the insanely big arm draped over the lance.

Great work. The only crit that jumps out at me is a lack of expression on the faces, esp the character on the right. But that's a nit, really. That is something to be proud of.

Thankyou, im still getting the hang of painting forms, but i'm getting tehre i tink. SO expressions are still something im dealing with. Getting faces up to this level painted was already a challenge. Ill still need to figure out how certain expression are produced in a painted format. So thank you for teh critique.

Ill be sure to look into it for future attempts.

the woman at the right in the black tank top

Ic thanx for the crit. Ye i see teh biceps dont quite match. I was thinkign unflexed biceps tend to be more tubular and less rounded but guess her right arms not fully extended

This is pretty outstanding! It's one of those pictures that makes me glad I logged on today!
It's not often you see muscly VC fanart unless you count like the bara following Largo has. It's funny because I always thought shouldn't Rosina look like that because of her profile.
The musculature and the uniforms are spot on. The Lances and Machine guns look perfect especially Audrey's Lance. Their Faces look perfect too. I do think Audrey looks a bit off without her big smile though.
My only other complaint is that you misspelled Valkyria but other than that your picture is really amazing.

Largo looks a bit too hairy for me so ill pass XD

And ye some of the descriptions like crushing watermelons with one hand and "Princess of Muscle" seemed sorely lacking in there character model, kinda understable but had to rectify that mistake... so ended up attempting 3 girls at once so hoping the quality for each girl is up to snuff.

And as for Audrey i didnt know she had a big smile on most times. I havnt gotten aroudn to play the game yet. I just gave her a cute little smile cause she didnt look like the bad ass type like teh other two. I'd tweak it but paints is such a pain for me so rather move on to something else.

Also thanx for the well worded comment, i appreciate teh response ^^

I'll go about changing teh title too

Rosina Selden is my favorite so far, because of the bodybuilding mantra. She enjoys working out as much as I do. Excellent work on the picture.
