Mongoose Lord by KEPZONE Mongoose Lord by KEPZONE
Character for that apocalypto-ladyland Age of Amazons thing. She doesn't really have a name yet, waffling between about 2 or 3 options. :) There are lady lords in the series, of course, hence the title. Armor-wise, was going for more "ceremonial" than "battle-ready" here.


This took me far longer than it should have, thanks to health acting up. In the end, it was worth finishing. There are just some pieces that you have to pull through with and finish up, because you, in some way or another, "level up" by doing them, and I think this was one of those.

I just look how far I've come even since earlier this year, let alone since back when I was a naive 13-year-old girl who though that the burn and dodge tool was the way to shade terrible drawings of Neopets back in 2003. (And you'll get to see my progress meme very soon - ha! :lmao: )

So yeah, I hope you guys like this.


1/9/17 – While this is hardly a repaint, I’ve seriously updated some things that were bugging me to make this more like the character I envisioned, and tightened up rendering in areas.

She is SO awesome. You can feel the power that surrounds her. She is like a female warrior should be. I really like her design. Thank you so much for sharing it!

My god, thanks so much for this comment. It just made my whole morning. :heart: 

I can't wait to design the other ladies in this series. (Just in the middle of getting settled in a new place first - ack.)

I head you were looking for a name for this badass. How about Adia?

That's not a bad name, actually! I'll keep it in mind! Thanks! :D

I am so attracted to her like wow

the colours is what really gets me, you know? It's all rustic and with earth/muddy tones--but it really is inviting to the eye where you placed everything. But then that teal sorta brings the piece out to be more eyecatching too, but not in your face.

really great work!!

Haw. Thanks for such a great comment. :D

I really feel I did "level up" a bit in my rendering and color with this piece, and I'm just so glad someone commented on the coloring. I kept messing with her face paint wondering "okay, how do I get this to work, color and design-wise" and I wound up going with the teal.

So thank you!
