Like it a lot. Nice to see practical armour on a heroine character (Royo could take note). Only thing I'm not sure about is the creature, which doesn't seem formidable enough. The Dragony head seems a bit big for the snaky body. The body seems a bit weak.
oh noes! that poor dragon.. even if it was evil. I love how you haven't made the heroine generic, or in any case girly, I love her face how she's like don't-make-me-kick-your-arse tone. Real Seriousness! Though There should be gore splattered on her face and/or armour to make it seem like she had a real fight and not just stabbing roadkill she found
The reflections on her cheeks/jawline look surprisingly crisp to me. I hesitate to call this 'wrong' especially because I know a contrast issue on receding planes like that might look less dramatic on another monitor, but as I look at it here, it's almost like an 80s synth pop make-up job...Annie Lennox circa 1983 or so.
But I like it. The pink of the dead dragons neck has a very creepy effect.
I'm certainly old enough, but no, you're right, she really wasn't a part of the 80s British Invasion. Looked her up on wiki though and thems are some nice wigs. If she had made it over, I might have had a Toyah phase instead of a Boy George phase.
Makes one wonder how many other Bowie derivatives didn't make it to the US.
