Following up from a previous popular piece "Nora Valkyrie - Levelled Up" I will be doing the redesigns of the main four characters from RWBY.
About this levelled up design. There's something about Yang that just wants to throw on a big leather duster and walk around the town like she owns it. That was pretty much my whole idea really, plus add a hat. The shin guards and boot plates were secondary ideas that followed along Yang wanted to protect herself as much as possible. The idea being as her story continues and she develops a phobia of losing another limb so she protects her body more. Even though it's cumbersome and restricts her movement; when she hits, she hits hard!
There's also a few other things about the design that I won't mention here. (Like what her pose is referencing) I'll just leave some things up to people's imagination ^_^
