Warrior's Maiden by spydaman Warrior's Maiden by spydaman
Cornflower Fieldmouse of Redwall fame. This is less of a pic drawn to coincide with any particular scene in the book, more of just a character portrait. Tried to give her a real homebread, country girl sorta look but with a slight tint under her personality which shows there's more to her. Dunno if I achieved that but ya :p Didn't like it at first but it's growing on me hehe.

Nice pic. I like the coloring on it and the grainy look as some others have said. :)

I like the background.
I like the picture of Cornflower, too!

I love the linework and the shading you did for her fur. This would make a great illustration for the book!

love this piece. If only everyone on deviantART would submit things like this... :heart: There needs to be more Redwall fan art!!! The members hunger for it! :psychotic:

Beautifully done. Just as I imagined her.
hbanana7 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2007
The drawing is right in charcter with animal proportions just right!!! I love the earthy tones, and dear Cornflower being domestic holding a pie. I .....I....drew Cornflower loooong time ago, when I was wee...but it is NOTHING like this!!!! This makes me weep in shame!!! How I adore the Redwall series!! (sigh) I love that outfit she is wearing, hankerchief with skirt the shade of cornflower~~(for the longest time, in my wee days, I belived it was yellow, like corn). And...I love that you added the little touches of the celtic designs. This makes it even harder for me to post my Redwall sketches. Thank you very much for drawing this....and sharing it on dA!!!

Yay Redwall! This is really cute, and I totally think you pulled off what you said you were trying to do. :D
drawbackwards Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2006
I love how you made it all look like an ink and watercolor drawing on parchment. It works very well... :D

She's got that look I always imagined about her - kindhearted but not a pushover. Kinda like a WAY smaller badger. I mean, come on!! She's wife and mother to Redwall Warriors! She HAS to have a lot of strength.

...I cried laughing when I read her playing the ghost of Martin in "Mattimeo"!!

Love it.. such a cute li'l mousie. I like the use of the filter.. makes it look aged or something...
lupidog Featured By Owner May 29, 2006
She is incredibly darling. =)
CopperPenny Featured By Owner May 11, 2006
nice old world feel to it with the texture. I also liked how you erased a lil of the coloring to have the background come through a bit. Maybe a bit of shadowing with the symbols on the page so that they look more inbedded in the paper. The sketch line work is killer too!
GearOtter Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2006
That is gorgeous! I love all of the varying tones in the background and the coloring is amazing. Great work!

Redwall rules by the way. =P
