Here's a nearly-complete greyscale for a commission I'm working on.
I'm really holding myself back from adding color, and trying to get the thing as complete as possible before adding color. I don't normally work that way: it's usually a much more chaotic process. But being able to just focus on values, anatomy, and costume design without fretting over color certainly makes this part a lot easier. My fear now is that as I add color I'll end up painting over everything.

Here's the final image.
"After many years of pillage and carefree overindulgence, her successes and excesses began to take their toll. And despite her unmatched skill in combat, there was one foe that she could never manage to defeat: her weight. Eventually people stopped calling her Red Sonja altogether, and simply referred to her as Big Red."
