Reminds me a bit of Aela the Huntress from Skyrim. They share that rough sexy/savage look. Awesome concept. Very well illustrated.

A gladiatrix up to any challenge. I love the way the light tries to flood into the half dark deeper in the fighting pit.

Great art.
Reminded me of a D&D been there, done that moment of mine. See that guy in the left background of the arena floor? That was me.

The armour kind of looks like something out of Skyrim.

Amusingly, it have a dash of history - there is cryptic, small references in roman history of female gladiators, something who offenced the elites...

nice!!.. this totally reminded me a little of Jean Gerome's "pollice verso" (before i read your caption ;P). nice color variation and movement.. I like how you kept your background simplified.. great mood with the lighting.. character feels set in space with most of the information is in her head and torso.. well done sir.. well done :)
