Great art concepts here, Ralph. If I may add a friendly and constructive critique here, you should try exploring more "eye shape" ideas. All of your characters (both men and women) have the same eyes, lenght, corners and details. Doing something different would make your art EVEN better.
That's not the point. I made a joke referring to "lord Brianne"s feminime look. I don't really care about the gender, I find the artwork itself more entertaining.
Do you find any interest in medieval times? A lot of women were knights in a real world (Isabel De Montfort for example or the famous Fastrada). Why can't women be called lords, kings etc in a fictional world? That's not fiction, the name for the office has just changed over time. Search for Jadwiga of Poland or Irene of Athens.
