Normal Chick with a Gun by faustsketcher Normal Chick with a Gun by faustsketcher
Some quick sketch i ended up coloring today, not really much into it. But there's something i kinda would like to talk about, if someone feels like reading some lines lol

Some might be wondering why is she showing her bra? Well, it's a chick witha gun, DUH it's obviously gonna be unnecessarily revealing...

ya i'm just kinda joking around but must admit this kind of over-revealing clothing designs for female characters on films/anime/games is getting reeeeally tiring for me. In fact if this drawing was done to be put on some Korean/Japanese MMO she would prolly be wearing a bikini, or some shorts with a micro top.

This happens alot as well on medieval stuff, seing female "warriors" going around on a piece of loin cloth with a tinny metal piece on the knee, shoulder, and each nipple.


Of course seeing some exposure everynow and then it's cool, and hot, the same way for girls it's cool and hot seeing some hot male revealing his nicely built body partially naked... i guess dunno, maybe girls can specify on there.
But honestly the overuse of these skimpy designs, specially on armor, it's getting REALLY tiring and most of the time puts me off the game to be honest.


A good example of this would be ... well, half of the asian MMOs, really.
A good example of a game that does good AND sexy designs without being completely offputting, is maybe The Witcher 2, to name one. I mean, come on, the first time i saw Ves entering that interrogation room i was like DAMN FINE. full dressed, full armor, and yet damn awesomely cool and sexy, without the need to put her on hot pants and a micro bikini.


What do you guys think? I hope I'm not the weird one here XDDDDDDD!!!

cheers-! :iconyeahplz:!

You are right man, they just appeal some times in a lot of games.

We can assume she was just beginning to undress herself when the badguys came around. Or something.

I couldn't agree with you more on ridiculously revealing non-protective lady-armor. It's the reason I can't like Kill la Kill.

So I actually learned the hard way that keeping your shirt unbuttoned or unzipped like that is not a very good idea. I have been hooked so many times and discovered surprises from within that weren't there earlier

While any artistic conceit may be overused, even abused, heroic nudity is not an invalid concept, as this Californian professor of classical Greek would like to being to your attention.

I'm not usually into the bikini warrior stuff too.
And that lady will be wishing she had her shirt buttoned up. Bullet casings are hot and not something you want stuck in your cleavage.

Words like epic and awesome don't begin to do it justice. On another note your argument is valid, and I agree, but sometimes, I'd just rather skimpy be on the menu too.

Good work. Sure I'm not a fan of unrealistic reveal, but still a nice piece. I like how you have her wearing eye protection.

@Godslayer
Most games out there have some sort of war in the plot, meaning your main character is probably a soldier. Most soldiers--especially the good ones--have crappy personalities

I disagree. Drawing women is about showcasing their biggest features: the curves. It's hardly about sex appeal or anything like that--more aesthetics. That said, I personally can't draw crap.

I concur. The occasional skimpy but interesting outfit is OK, but when it's constant... =_= Skimpy is not the only thing that equals sexy. Girls make that mistake ALL THE TIME. And just think of the effect it had on cosplaying *Shudder*

haha, yes indeed. I don't necessarily demand them to put skimpy out of MMORPG, but at least give me options to wear "normal"/"full armor" versions of those.

I agree, in games dome armors can be well .....kind of skimpy. " It's great their crotch and chests is protected but shoundn't their arms and legs be too "
Game developers: "I'm sure they'll be fine"

This is a great image, Faust, but I do feel you do contradict yourself a little with your description and the open-shirt in the image. Unless of course that was the intended message, if so I apologise.

Most women in video games are treated like sex symbols rather than characters. There aren't many these days that aren't glorified breasts with poor personalities and string bikinis as armour. And it's annoyingly considered "fine" by a lot of the male audience.

Just as annoyingly are the male characters who are sexualised themselves are just as annoying (I'm looking at you Twilight). Seems its the norm to have big hulking muscleheads as lead characters with zero personality, or have them blatantly having no shirts for whatever reason and somehow managing to have their muscles all moist and shiny.

Makes you want to walk up to their designers / creators and punch them in the face.

the drawing s obviously made like that on purpose. Was not planned at start that's why she has normal trousers and all.

And yes. In fact nowadays you find characters with good personality and BG story etc... but simply put showing skin on a nonsensical way. I'd simply put it as in cheap, unoriginal character designs, and just taking the easy way instead of working on it.

Mhm. I am guilty of it myself on a few of my OCs, and am trying to lessen the amount of sexualised characters amongst them so I have only a couple to the otherwise ordinary(ish) cast. Gonna require lots of work on my part though :S

fffffff you live your life any friggin way you want, as long as you don't bother other people (and certainly a videogame isn't going to kill anyone, last time i checked) xDD I just stated my tastes, and how I'd like to see games offering more options than going around half naked. But I don't mean it as "you all better do that aswell, or am getting mad!". That's why you all got free will lol- XD

So true.

It's for this very reason that I don't watch anime anymore and I don't play many Asian MMOs.Most games I've played, I rolled male characters because I liked their armor better (because it's actual armor). Most female armor isn't armor. It's a battle bikini or worse. >.>;
