I made this character just before break so that I could have the week I had off to model her.
The background for this character is that she is from a peaceful tribe but two waring nations brought their conflict to the forest that she lived in. Because of this, she is forced to become a warrior to defend her people. The armor and weapons she has are made by one of the nations who trade with the natives during the war times.
For the concept I divided her body in half between defense and attack so half is for armor allowing the other to be faster for attacking.
