It looks like she only has one leg...I guess that would make me depressed, too!

You might want to move the "lion" shield" away from the one-legged knight a bit, so that people don't confuse it as a "ball arm..." This would also help reveal her "missing" leg, since I think I see a knee joint above the "ball arm" shield confusion.

The figure obviously has two legs. There is chain mail above the lion shield which comes from the waist, then covers a bit of left leg of the figure. If only the author had made a SBS this image wouldn't be so confusing.

Nice source find. However you need some adjustments:

1.You should work out a background. BG matters a lot in giving the context & mood of an entry.
2. You could use some color on her skin & hair - this will be fun and might give a "painting" feel to it.
3.An SBS would help some to appreciate your efforts more.
That's it for know, if you need more I'll be around.

Author I think you have done a fine job, especially with the armor. A step by step would be helpful for those who are curious as to your method. All in all I like your concept and its execution.

PS: It would be nice to see how you achieved the metallic effect on the shield. We're all here to learn.

just add more edge burn to make it convex
.....and I agree, the figure obviously has 2 legs and is covered with armor, nice work author

Colored skin is sexy! I'm glad you decided to do that!
You could also try to color up her hair, make it blonde-ish so that it relates to the shield.
And if you have time, try to experiment with some grass, some sky, like she's sitting on a rock at the edge of a cliff. Maybe you can even find a nice castle stock and place it on a far hill in the background.
You can improve this a lot!
