For that SHES supposed to be a she, looks very manly to me :'D I know its hard to armor a Girl more realistic (heavy armor) without showing off their titts and butts xD The Concept is Pretty cool though ! Shield&weapon
it's annoying when one tries to make a female warrior and either it has to little armor and then has too much armor that makes her look like a he
i tried balancing out things, giving her the curves and showing some hints about it. But i understand that just the lines as they are may give her more of a manly look. Oh well, not that good illustrating girls yet
Well you know it, i did draw a Shemale like this too xDDD just more worse. A thing is to give shape with MAterials, like leather where the Curves need to be a lil more showy or the "important" parts like that make a difference. Thing is to bring the Gender out ! define it ! make the armor look feminine. Not by showing titts and butt all open XD but by defining the shape and have the right usage of materials, that dont "ruin" the godly shape of the Female body. Important is As always the Hips and the face, titts can be showed as "breastplate" . As example the chainmail at the arm is loose, why'? it destroyed the shape of "her" arm. Another thing is.. to think of a realistic design.. another baddie is that her Armguard things that also act as weapon are directly put onto the skin, that would in real life end as horrible skin shaving XD especially with this weapon.
And the face is very manly, study the feminine expressions and face~♥ Hope you dont mind me pointing out the "mistakes"
Didn't mind at all... except for the feminine face part
nah im kidding i know but keep in mind she is a warrior nevertheless, im not looking to make her cute looking or girly looking as i can. One thing i found useful though (of the many things i did, but this was by far the most useful) was the point out of the shield facing her bare skin, how come i overlooked that x.x and i will definitely change that before i start painting.
the rest is very well pointed out, however two things i need to say she is wearing breasplate and second the loose chainmail is that she's wearing a looser chainmail, and i chose that for... well because i liked it quite frankly
oh and even though i may deny half of the things one points out, somethings are indeed quite helpful, some not right now but for future reference, these are the comments i love the most honest to god so please do keep em coming if you have the time
5 "xD"'s counted !! xD Im more worried about you than the fact if i have time to or not, i will do it when i feel like "helping" or torturing you ;'D XD Joke, i personally see it as helping as i think it would help me too xD But i can tell when someone "tries" to criticize or just points out things he "thinks" are wrong. I know what im talking about. thats why i share my opinion.
Anyway, im happy that you "honor" or agree on me taking my time to anger you ! xD
What i would suggest is to send me a message at FB whenever you need it. im the one that commented on the studies xD
Sure lets see~ Well nice way to avoid it, it works ! XD
Cushioned'? padded'? what is that, a warriors weapon'? oO XDDD you know.. Fighters are strong and stuff, they shouldnt care about cushioned stuff xD I would say, Leather strings that connect the shield weapon with the arm. like make slices into it and wrap the leather around the arm and the shield. but you would need to add another thing to the shield, i mean.. if theres leather on the outside adn the enemy hits it, the weapon woul get loose. So you would need to add some stuff like a shildspike in the middle. also, it would be cool to see it redesigned, the shield. "shieldsmash!!" doesnt do much damage if its a flat thing like that. make it badass !! XD and i think you already noticed it, cause its somethign you see with the first look, her breasts arent the "exact" same size.
her anatomy is right trustme i checked and i usually dont make mistakes there (yep im bragging i know)
i would be so sure i'd like to see someone fight her and get his ass kicked by two shields trust me they do damage, they can crack a skull, break bones and break swords so thats what matters in the end. It can also slice since the edges are bladed and it can also work as a mandible or scissors
Loose? can't see that happening 2 leather stripes plus a grip i could wrap more around her arm and make it work but one thing
and this is my number one rule
it's fantasy it doesn't need to apply by normal and regular laws of everything otherwise Ginevra and Asile would die by dancing around the battlefield with a ring blade Martien at age 57 couldn't hold that sword Éron would die due to his inexperience against pretty much anyone who stood in his way
Baterius wouldn't even fight or walk he's blind and his armor doesn't properly weight the same as a feather Ogol would not be the mountain of muscles with 2.50m he's have issues with his bones Ogor wouldn't even exist Mirabell a mage fighting half naked.. big no no Ramzel couldn't hold his sword let alone a spear in just one hand
i think originality is a bit subjective. I don't think there is much more to create or invent, that hasn't been thought of or made already.
Thinking of a weapon that would suit her and her psychological profile was a pain, but then i started thinking outside the box and came up with that. But deep down i think that someone somewhere sometime thought of the same and perhaps there's already a character using the same weapon as her
