Sleepless Guardian by Sadyna Sleepless Guardian by Sadyna
New princess for my ''warrior princess'' project!! This time Sleeping beauty - Aurora : ) Her staff is kinda boring but there wasn't much room for bigger staff when you have only A4 paper size :: D My scanner made this picture little bit too bright....Also her face looks too long... and her hair -- OKAY IT'S FINE blaah blaah :B I made her flag colors from her both dresses blue and pink and those three color strings are from her godmothers ;) I HOPE YOU LIKE!

DOne: Copic markers, white/black inks

Very nice. The staff and the fact that you named this piece "Sleepless Guardian" kind of reminds me of W.I.T.C.H.

I love Aurora, she's my favorite Disney Princess.
You did her incredible justice in this!! <3

Omg she looks like Joan of Ark :D she's wonderful. Would I be able to use this for a tattoo?

I like the roses on her leg guards. The staff looks like something to do with Maleficent.

I love how you drew her hair :love:
It looks so soft and beautiful
xXTsumoriXx Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I love how you do non hypersexualized warrior women. It goes to show that they can be both beautiful and awesome-looking without being nearly naked. I really appreciate that because it's not easy to find art like that these days. :)

These are absolutely amazing!

For cosplay reasons, is her armor white or REALLY shiny chrome?

The staff was a nice thing to add, it has a little bit of Malificient in it.

My fave of the warrior princesses. :heart: 
Simple yet elegant design.

Here's a question, are copic markers lighter than normal art markers? I bought a set of art markers and I could not color as subtly as you do with these
Sadyna Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2014  Student General Artist
Copics are alcohol based markers so I think that's why they are easy to blend smoothly. Also you need smooth paper so they will blend nicely.
ladyknight1991 Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh! Ok good to know. Thanks!
MOM0KI Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2014
Could you make layers for this one as well, so everyone can see hoe it all goes together? It's so well done *_* Great job! I really am considering cosplaying this... Heheheh!
pennydrdful Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2014
It's funny to me that you think her staff is boring.  It was actually the first thing about this piece that caught my eye.  Because of the black metal and the sharp design of it, it immediately made me imagine a backstory where warrior princess Aurora storms Maleficent's castle, kills her, and then steals this staff from her castle and hangs her own blue/pink banner from it.  So, I'm a fan of the staff.  But I'm also a fan of the kickass armor you created here, and her hair!  The hair is just so pretty!

Jarven IV from league of legends?  xD
auroraborn Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2014
First of all, this is amazing! I found it via tumblr (where you are properly credited for it. So you know) But would you be against anyone cosplaying this? 
Sadyna Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2014  Student General Artist
I'd love to see some cosplays : )
RomanticStelma Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Epic! If that banner (i don't know) be like spear it will be better. But still EPIC!

She reminds me of a cooler version of Hilde from Soul Calibur.

Hello !

I really love the work you've done on those armored Princess. They're really gorgeous !

I was actually wondering, what kind of paper do you use ? Is it a specific paper for copic markers (I think it's named lay-out ?) or is it something else ?
Sadyna Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2013  Student General Artist
(sorry for taking so long) But the paper is Bristol Board Extra smooth ~~
darkzizanie Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2013  Student General Artist
No problem at all !

Thank you for your answer, I'll give it a try :)

Good conitnuation !

This is so awesome. *A*
I love the shoulders, and the whiteness of the armor.
She looks very.. timeless. Or something. Like Sailor Pluto or the guardian Heimdall from Thor.

You just displayed why I am craving for Copic markers... but they are just so dang expensive. And btw, this project of yours really catches my interest. I love this so much.
