Agreed. I'm also sick of female athletes being dressed up. I have no issue with swim suit issues of SI, but I cannot stand when there is a story on a female athlete and she is dressed scantily or dressed for a night out. I want to see them as they would be on the field.
If you haven't already, play Witcher 2 as Saskia is both a central character and as fully clad as I've seen in a while (her armor is plausible in the world at least).
I am no skilled artist like many on this site. I just enjoy art, skill and the female form. I like the idea of a worrior in armor, haha great job. I love the elbow piece, really sick.
^This is my thoughts. This is why everytime I play a game with scantily clad females I try my best to mod them into something a lot more logical!
You're blinded by hate, so the forearm seems too long, bicep seems too short. Eyes and mouth are too big for that head, etc. Not your fault, but anything motivated by hate will always self destruct.
Side note, you'd rather see men in scantly clad armor? You do realize we're equals already right? We only like that look on females because the female body has the beauty to pull it off. The last generation ofhate is dying off. I would be honored if you could rise above yourself and be something new.
a) Run some measurements; perspective and distances are correct - (I know because I did the line planning for them).
b) The female body might have the beauty to pull it off, but the motivation for artists making over-sexual characters is due to sexism, to turn female warrior/fighter types into sex objects to push their narrative. It is cheap and shows lazy design by the artist.
c)'We' don't like that look, guys do, you should know that I'm a male and as a character artist I'm not a big fan of armor designs that do not make any sense in terms of practical defensive abilities.
I agree with your take on female warriors in fantasy. Most would just cover up and put on male armor to keep from being singled out if defeated.
P.S. The anti-paladin is a blackguard
