this is a great piece of art and it is amazing to me because how you put it together from the big to small details in it , to the rich color color layout with the sharp edge to smooth edge it make it pop out to the screen and with the well play warm to cool colors willing catch my eye and the flow of it again amazing beautiful piece of art
She's missing a leg and I really dislike the passive expression on her face. Literally nothing about this says 'War Goddess'. She doesn't look ready for war (and I don't just mean the silly sexualized armor), she doesn't look tough, she looks like someone's sexual fantasy waiting to be consumed and she has no engagement in it. The sword is also angled poorly and doesn't seem to actually be held by her, maybe it was added after she was drawn? That's what it looks like.
Sure she's beautiful but finding beautiful women online hardly takes any effort. The artist is clearly skilled which is why it's sad to see them spend their time on making such a bland, sexualized image that does nothing but titillate and it's value as 'wank material' is minimal. I like that she doesn't look like she was drawn from porn, and nothing pisses me off more than a woman drawn with an O-face in a scene where she shouldn't. Still she isn't engaging the viewer, she's just being passively viewed and sexualized.
In contrast the men in the background have a strong firm stance and even with their eyes hidden the angle of the masked man on the right suggests he's looking directly at the viewer. They look like they're ready for a fight while the 'goddess' is just posing for a swimsuit calendar.
