Nora is a 2d/3d character. You can see the Full Body character Animated HERE:www.artstation.com/artwork/AyQ…
My inspiration was the CastleVania and Vanillaware games.
Done with Photoshop and Maya only. I made the normal map for the character in Photoshop with a Special method.
Thus the armor and other part of the body can reflect the surrounding lights. You can see the outcome by clicking on the link above.
