An upgraded concept drawing for the Polish Women Warrior of the Historically Wrong Sketch Project: Blood and Steel set in the 17th Century era of Warfare. This is probably a darker, and more sinister redesign of Euforzyna's Polish Hussar's costume....I'm not sure if it's due to stress or change of interest, but i noticed that the tone of my work is getting rather darker and more serious.

Her armor and helmet is more stylized as compare to her original concept sketch,
, with the added blood splatters to increase the dreadfulness of her image. The face protection is kept as it is instead of opting for the more historical nose guard, leaving her sole left eye to project an emotion full of fury. What's interesting to me is that, while the original character
is depicted as a cunning and calculating ambitious young lady who rode to battle, kills some foolish soldiers and call it a day...the upgraded version of her depicts a much more bloodthirsty image who are agressive in combat, and merciless in killing her foes. In reality, this could happen, war is a terrible experience and the mental scars from it can make people go nuts.
Nevertheless, the brush has been inked and the strokes have been made, the image of Eufrozyna is currently divided between the noble and cunning princess of the house of Czyrniech....and the Merciless angel of death as depicted in this sketch. You can have your opinion as to which is better to represent the Women Warrior of the Historically Wrong Sketch.
There's no mercy to her foes, pity these warriors that will face her
A much more calming and peaceful depiction of Eufrozyna
