2010 - HILDE by Vandrell 2010 - HILDE by Vandrell
Commission to :icontzarsectus:

I always loved the concept of the warrior princess, and Hilde it's a great example. I have a lot of hours of fun doing this one, remembering some old movie posters of my childhood and trying to give a lot of sense on her face and some epic feeling on her actitude .

Although Hilde has never been a character with I feel very comfortable playing with it, doing this illustration I have learned to love her XD

----------------------------------------------

Siempre me ha gustado el concepto de la princesa guerrera, y Hilde es un gran ejemplo. La verdad es que me lo he pasado realmente bien pintando esta ilustración, recordando algunos carteles de películas antiguas de mi infancia y tratando de dar cierto sentimiento en su rostro asi como un tono épico en su actitud.

Aunque a la hora de jugar a Soul Calibur IV, Hilde nunca ha sido un personaje con el que me sienta muy cómodo, gracias a este retrato he aprendido a amarla XD

Reminds me of a red-haired Eowyn from Lord of the Rings

This is amazing. Which is an understatement. Square-Enix don't even put this much effort into most of their promotional artwork most of the time, and I adore their work.

It's amazing how well you nailed the metallic shine. Most people just settle on splashing monochrome gradients, but you actually got an actual location reflecting off of her.

Wow! Really love it. I especially like how you used very simple brush strokes on the armor yet still retained a metallic look. The rest of the detail is especially great and her face has a very realistic quality to it.

It's almost as if Hildegard herself posed for this picture. Something about your works give the characters so much life. In my humble opinion, your works are among the best for Soul Calibur art
