Iron Wizard by Rhineville Iron Wizard by Rhineville
And finally, the Iron Wizard and her hawk familiar, the last of the characters I did for Paizo’s NPC Codex.

I’ve been waiting to show her for a while. Most of the time I don’t like my own work, sometimes I think I did alright. This one I like. I took the hawk theme, which was only required for the helmet, and ran with it. More often than not I feel like my attempts to marry the more over the top
aspects of fantasy design with a more realistic approach fall flat, but here I think I succeeded. I think it’s because the main silhouette of the armor is more realistic (form follows function) and most of the embellishment is within those forms. I also got away with a female warrior in full plate without showing boobs for no reason, so I call that a win :)

You can call it a win, indeed!
The design is amazing and i love the character's face, with that nose that's not a dolly one!

This is gorgeous!I love the armor, absolutely love it. I may have to play a PC based on this image, perhaps a follow of Horus-Re in my Forgotten Realms 2E campaign!

Very nice! I like the actually-functional elbow armor. That's one of those details that is frequently glossed over. ;)

The rendering on this is absolutely beautiful. I can't stop looking at the details and how you painted the values. I agree with other commenters, I think you integrated the hawk details quite well.
