Often we see female character design veering toward a predictable set of characteristics; unrealistically sexual, scantily clothed, and carrying a large gun outweighing her manyfold. It's cool and all, and it has its place.

But I think it would be nice to see some more thoughtful design choices happening. Give it a shot!

haha okay, most people saw this as a male...dangit. Well, it was supposed to be a female...

I agree with your concept. I'm developing a game where the female characters wear similar body armor to the males, there's no "boob windows" on their armor for no reason. It makes no sense.

I totally agree with you. I don't like all of the unrealistic characteristics. I get a lot of inspiration from these kind of drawings and things like that ruin it for me.

P.S. I could tell it was female by the physique :)

Yeah I agree, I too fall in the predictable characteristics too often. I should give it a try.

-Her eyebrows gave her away, btw. X3

no no. it's definitely female... i don't understand people sometimes... its easy to tell male from female... even from far away... look at how the hips flare out... guys hips don't do that...

and you're right when it comes to females carrying a large gun that has to be at least 3 times their body weight... i always see those and think "WTF?!?!?!?" (^^,)
