This is the final illustration for the contest. I changed the initial building in the background to a large door where she stands in the front to guard against enemies. She is a powerful villain with a duty to protect the empire and prevent enemies from trespassing.

This rough concept reveals a wider view of the gate/door that the gatekeeper is guarding. The skull of a vulture at the top of the gate symbolizes the civilization's dark nature.

This is the current look of the guardian, there are already a few changes planned on certain features of the design. So it will be edited before I move on to the main illustration with environment.

Experimented with a few silhouettes to identify the shapes that best fit my character.
