Sorsha Nouveau by kishokahime Sorsha Nouveau by kishokahime
Sorsha, from the movie Willow :)

This took way too long to finish, but in my defense, finding references was a paaaaaaain for her. most of the screenshots are fuzzy, if there were any at all, and i was limited for detailed armor.

At the same time, I had to include her, because despite going through most of the movie as an antagonist before switching sides, she remained badass the whole way. even when her dick of a mom turned her into a pig. a badass pig.

and that sword, omg. OUCH.

i adored this movie as a child, and continue to as an adult. also, if you watch this movie at least once and not recall the name of Val Kilmer's character? you had the movie on mute. cause it gets screamed forever.
MADMOOOORDIGAAAAAAN!!!

I really, really like this whole series (and i love this one in particular!), EXCEPT that the font you're using -- Boecklin -- isn't particularly pretty or authentic; it's like a generic "Art Nouveau-ish" font, rather than anything particularly nice.

Compare the lettering here, for example; it's still ... roundish and swashy, but less so: www.codex99.com/design/images/…

Some fonts I'd recommend for these that are free:

Edda Caps: www.fontspace.com/sam-wang/edd…
Isadora Caps: www.fontspace.com/sam-wang/isa…
Rudelsberg: www.fontspace.com/david-rakows…
Sarah Caps: www.fontspace.com/sam-wang/sar…
Shangri-La: www.dafont.com/shangri.font
Greeting: www.fontspace.com/sam-wang/gre…
Gismonda: www.fontspace.com/sam-wang/gis…
Ambrosia Caps: www.fontspace.com/sam-wang/amb…


Please, please, please do NOT take this as criticism of your work -- these illos are beautiful! But I'm a historical typography geek, so i thought i'd offer you some suggestions to make the actual lettering more accurate and lovely!
