Essa with rifle by RedShoulder Essa with rifle by RedShoulder
This is the cover illo for a client's science fiction novel. I'll post up the info on the book later, but this is his character Essa, who's a tough girl in her early teens who takes on her foes with a "smart" rifle and a "smartsuit". I did the drawing back in '12, but finally finished the color version this year. Damn, I'm slow...

At any rate, Essa's look is a little different from my normal style, at least I think so.

Drawn in carmine red, inked in Manga Studio, and colored in Photoshop. Enjoy and comment!

[UPDATE] The book "Essa: an In the Real of the Gods novel" can be purchased for the Kindle via Amazon: www.amazon.com/Essa-Realm-Gods…. Check it out!

Essa created by R.P. Bird, artwork by me.

Essa looks like quite a badass there. A very battle-hardened female Space Marine-type one.

She reminds me of Samus Aran, but different.

Thanks man!  And I'm also glad that the client liked it a lot too.  BTW--I'm still working on Blazeflare; it's just taking a while since I'm trying to work on commissions with close deadlines.  I do hope to have something soon.
