I submitted this a while ago, but I’m not sure it was received, so I’m submitting again.

When I saw this photo: http://eschergirls.tumblr.com/post/99071161796/cataradical-submitted-i-have-never-submitted I just had to do something about her poor hips. I gave her an actual pelvis and arranged her legs so that she’s walking toward the viewer (which would make the hip tilt and arm swinging make more sense), instead of just standing there swaying around. I also tried to make her face a bit more symmetrical and give her a more determined expression, tweak her outfit slightly, make it so that her hands are actually *holding* the swords (which I admit is tricky- I have no idea why the hilts turned out so huge), and moved the knives on her belt so that they weren’t right on her crotch (also got rid of the pouch flaps, because if you have knife handles sticking out of your pouches, HOW CAN YOU CLOSE THE FLAPS?) I also made her “shirt” collar follow the line of her chest instead of forming a weird two-dimensional square, and actually attached the cross to her neck piece. Just a series of tiny adjustments, but sometimes it’s the small things that make all the difference.

I really like your take on this!  You kept a lot of the details and outfit, but your adjustments really make a huge difference, in my opinion, and I really like it!  Thank you for your submission :3
