Wow, that chestnut of a conversation again. I would totally wear that outfit if it existed. There is nothing wrong with women looking 'sexy'. We do it every day. There's a whole multi-billion industry revolving around female fashions, makeup, magazines, etc... and almost ALL of it revolves around sex, or sexiness, attraction, etc... Women use allure as a weapon against men and have done so since the dawn of time (well, probably, but I can't say for sure since I wasn't there). If looking distracting allows Remy to drive her sword into some guys chest because he was too busy staring at her boobs to notice, then the more power to her. That'll teach him to underestimate her resolve.

All the people out there who want to remove sexuality from female characters so that women characters are not about their sexuality but about something else are hilariously wrong. Not that I'm saying that sexuality is the only thing that matters, but it's not something people should eliminate either since we would end up with an equally unrealistic depiction of people. Sex drives a lot of things we do in life. Attraction, for both men and women, is an important facet of our everyday life. I'm sure people will point out that the average female out there, in the workforce, isn't exactly 'sexy'. In fact, most women are average (a statement that is impossible to disprove). But then again, one could probably say that the average women probably dreams of being beautiful and sexy, which is probably why magazines and media selling fashions and makeup and the such are doing such an impossibly good business.

The picture above is obviously not some over-the-top female stereotype as often depicted in the media. I see the picture above as a futuristic derivative of the traditional femme-fatale. The one legged pants are reminiscent of the slit dress which showed some leg.. When I look at the picture above, I see a woman stuck in a tough world, a woman not afraid to use her looks as a weapon in her arsenal. If looking and dressing as she does generates the level of distraction she needs to get the upper hand in a dicey situation, then great for her. I hopes she shoots and slashes her way to success (and I'm sure she'll be highly amused by the looks on men's faces in their last second as they realize their mistake) !!!

The shoes though are a bit stupid, I'd never wear that and I'm fairly confident that no woman I know would.... Combat boots would be nicer and more useful! The hat is totally awesome!

I really like the technical execution off this model, the materials are really shiny and crease well and the skin is realistic. I think the face is the weakest element in some of the closer shots the eyes seem too wide open. Also i have a feeling the shoulders are to broad for her petit frame.

You've heard the comments and opinions about the heels, about the pants and such enough. But I do think you need to hear that you're an excellent designer more! I love your work, no matter what others say about it you have such gorgeous detailing, and exceptional visual appeal.

I hope to see more 3D work from you.

I'm loving the texture of the leather and its wrinkles. It looks so realistic, yet glamorous. I do have to agree with some other commenters: the half-leotard and those platforms make me uncomfortable. She looks more like a cramped cosplayer than a badass action hero. I mean, I know 98% of female game characters prioritize fanservice, but I can't look at her without thinking "ow, ankles". Save those two elements, the design is very nice and it's rendered so realistically.

Judging by her outfit and the personality she's giving off, she's probably an active woman, right?

An active woman wouldn't wear a half-leotard. The edge of it would constantly roll and ride up inside her ass and ladybits, causing a huge distraction.

The shoes are just . . . no. I think if every man tried on high heels for a day, they'd never design an action woman wearing them again. Those shoes will break her ankles and/or leave her dead in a day. You just cannot run around fighting baddies and jumping buildings and kicking ass when you're literally walking on heel stilts.

The constricting top is pretty good, though. Bouncing boobs are as bad as wobbly heels, so she'd definitely want to make her top tight to hold her boobs in place.

Interesting design. I like the texture differences in the material; the hat, holster and shoulder straps actually look like real leather, and you've got some nice detailing on the sword.

The screw pattern on her left leg makes me wonder if that limb isn't prosthetic/mechanical, which would partially explain the choice for the risque outfit design- mislead the opposition to give you the element of suprise when you pull out the nifty tricks from the hidden compartments or use special abilities granted by the graft.

As posted below, I do believe that you could have selected a more natural choice for her footwear- twelve inch stiletto platforms aren't the most enabling for a sword or even a gun fight. Simple low-cut cowboy boots would probably have been a better choice.

Good job, though, and congratulations on the Daily Deviation.

Bitching doesn't really do much. Just a waste of time really. If the artist is open for suggestions on how to improve the character he would clearly state it in the description. It's just personal taste is all. Noticing that most of the people complaining about the design are female... I wonder if the same relevant design applied to a male would be less offending. I already replied to ScotsDragon with a better explanation.

I could make a female character that never wears clothes, uses dual katanas to fight and can fly. Most people aren't going to like the character obviously but who are they to just personal taste? People can design characters how they want. You can't change it so what's the point in complaining? There isn't a point to it at all. I'm not defending the design because I like it. I don't find it at all attractive but it's just silly how people are getting offended over it. How do you get offended by a fictional character that wears skimpy clothing that is in no way related to you?

I was trying to be nice and not be jackass like every other person on this site.

Short and simple. I'll say it again. You can't change other people's designs. I said it before, complaining is literally pointless. Constructive criticism is welcome if the artist asks for it. If not, if he obviously won't read it and take the advice then what is the point?

If somebody told me to change one of my character's eye color to brown all because their green eyes seem too weird should I take the advice and change it? No I shouldn't because it's their personal preference.

But thanks anyways for taking a stab at how I type. I'm sorry I forgot to break up a very small wall of text when I was half asleep and I'm sorry you don't have enough patience to read about 5-6 sentences.

You were hardly being "nice".
Self-righteousness of that sort is pretty much equivalent to guys that think the "Friend Zone" (A) exists, & (B) is a bad thing.

Commentary, whether in the form of appreciation or complaint, is a vital component of artistic feedback.
Criticisms of specific design choices are perfectly valid commentary, especially when they are focused on trends that are incongruous with logic and ethics.
(Unnecessary sexualisation of female protagonists, particularly choice of clothing detrimental to combat effectiveness, without a male equivalent is outright sexism)

As far as "asks for it", no.
Comments are enabled, so commentary is allowed.
That simple.

It depends entirely on their reasoning.
If it's personal preference, fine.
If it's because the character is of a specific genetic background & that eye colour is not found within that group, then yes you should probably either take the advice or adjust the character to compensate.
To not do so would be personal choice but also poor design.

You're absolutely welcome.
I'm glad that I have the patience & intellectual fortitude to respond to someone being self-righteous and fallcious while still expecting some measure of minimal respect & literacy.

I stopped at "outright sexism". Gee wow, a female character with one pants leg missing and some odd looking high heels. That's really sexist LOL. So If I had a female character that wore shorts would that be sexist since it's showing off some leg? Maybe the character doesn't really worry about protecting herself during combat? Maybe she likes being stylish? You don't know her personality so you can't say anything lol.

You don't see many people complaining about Bayonetta's design even though her design is way over-sexualized and doesn't make much sense at all. Shit I could go on with a list of female characters with crude, weird designs that people don't nitpick at.

Why is that? Why is it that these weird designs that don't seem fit for "combat" are well accepted by dozens of men AND women? Because most people don't care. They care about how the character looks in general along with their personality and how they interact with other characters.

People that nitpick at little design flaws are usually the people that can't create interesting characters at all. Sometimes being a little unrealistic is the key to making characters that are lovable.

Gorgeous textures and a vary well made model, the detail such as the seams and creases in the fabric are gorgeous. it is refreshing to see people making their own models as opposed to using poser or other such programs.

However, in my eyes, the fact that you are such a skilled independent developer just makes it sadder that you are part of the problem making s*** like this the norm, the commenters below has been polite about it, but I'll just say it as it is: that costume design is f***ing stupid, and I have taken a look at the rest of your gallery and the trend is that the women are dressed in stuff like this, while the men are dressed in proper body armour.

Listen, I am not trying to attack you, I tend to make my statement and try to start a conversation with a lot of people that shows the same tenancies in their art, and I am very interested in learning what your thoughts behind your character design is. Going the slutty road with your female characters has always been an easy road to go, but the way women are portrayed in media (video-games are notorious) ultimately hurts us and makes it harder for us to be taken serious as people. In any case portraying us like sex objects hardly brings more women into the beautiful world of gaming.

As game developer of the future, I beg you to keep this in mind and think about the reasons for and effect of your future character design, be part of the solution in stead of the problem

Congratulation on Daily Deviation :)

While I understand your argument, you do understand that these types of images are part of a genre of character concept/development? I play video games, and no, I do not feel less adequate as a female because a grouping of pixels is bouncing around half clothed. On the same token of your argument, in what part of the contemporary world do men walk around in full plate armor?? These are fantasy images, meant for the unreal world of gaming.

I am fully aware of the trends my dear, and yes I play video games too, I do it despite the way women tends to be portrayed and yes while playing it doesn't bother me so much, but it does annoy me to no end if I put just some thought into it.

I don't think your point of men not using full-plate in real life holds up, if you see a person on screen in full plate (or Kevlar armour for that matter) it brings fourth an image of power and capability, after all videogames are to a great degree wish-fulfillment and that's where the inequality comes in, a guy can be a cool character with armour and a sword or a gun, but I have never heard a girl say "I wish I could be a slutty bint that is too stupid to understand how armour works". I can appreciate a sexy woman, I really can, but when I see things like this I can only think, she can't possibly have an IQ level over 75.

By all means, there are problems with portrayal of men in games too, mainly that 99% of them are white strait manly-men.

Whatever is the issue, I don't think it's inappropriate to ask game designers to think about these things and perhaps help better the games of tomorrow

Using a phrase to answer your question: sex sells.

As much as I tend to agree with you on the matter, it is statistically proven that skimpy/unrealistic = sales when it comes to female characters. You can trace the data all the way to Laura Croft of the original Tomb Raider and Tifa from Final Fantasy 7(pixellated over sized boobs and impossibly tiny waist with short shorts and a tank top.)

It is more-or-less accepted that the majority of the market for video games are teenaged to young adult males, and seeing scantily dressed females gallivanting around in 'fantasy armor' is one way to pique their (hormone-driven) interests.

The marketing strategy of video game girls aside, the manner in which you presented your statement is not one that provides for an atmosphere of civil discussion. Agressive tone and use of profanity is more likely to repel the people who are most able to answer your queries and provide intelligent discourse on the subject. Just a thought for the next time you see a picture of FFX-II Rikku in her Samurai armor, or something of the sort.
