Anchovy Knight by JohnSu Anchovy Knight by JohnSu
As the certified owner of an A2 Magic Engine, Lidia Engraw is by profession an Anchovy Knight of the State. She would much rather be a banker, though, and spend her time in a secure building doing stationary work at a safe, immobile desk. But nobody is hiring at this time.

Anchovy Knights are primarily known for their speed, being very small and agile. It's like a flying motorcycle. And although the A2 is capable of producing projectiles from its exhaust, it cannot do this while in rocket mode, making it very difficult to aim and maneuver in air combat. Not a very good knight. But the rocket is pretty cute, and is popular with the children.

Anchovy Knights are also sometimes called Anchovy Witches due to their uniform and the magic nature of their rockets. But not all of them are female, and don't necessarily know how to use magic. Also there are different taxes for knights, so they are registered as Anchovy Knights.

Lidia here is shown as under attack by a lot of air guys. We don't know why, but at least it gave me an excuse to draw stuff hitting the grass and some funky smoke. She would probably hate me if she knew I was responsible. And if she was real.

Made in Flash

EDIT: A number of you have asked why she is not wearing her goggles properly. The answer is simple and twofold: 1) she looks cuter like this, and 2) they are MAGIC GOGGLES

Reminds me of Strike Witches. But with Anchovies.

Something about the colors really clicks together on this one.
Badass job on the perspective, plus I love airships and the logo really suits the picture. I love the girl's outfit and, well, everything really just feels like it all fits together.

Unless I missed one, JohnSu has drawn 3 pictures of knight characters (this one, Butter Knight, and Hebikishi (Snake Knight)).

Also, all of them are female. Maybe JohnSu has a thing for deadly women.

This is true. I have failed you.

... ... ...

But... in my defense, the title "Kishitsubo" refers to the pot/jar/land-invasion-vehicle and not the armored man.
So still, all three of your knight centered pictures are of women.

:iconjohnsu:
JohnSu Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
the "Kishi" in "Kishitsubo" can also refer to the armored man
and it is still a picture of a knight character, even if there is an octopus pot in it
