I have noticed that most of the comments where aggresive to the fact that the armor was revealing for one I dont think this armor is as revealing as you all say most of her rear is covered by her cape and hair while the front doesnt cover as much as it could at the bottom but that is justifiably as it could allow for a slightly wider range of movement it may not have been the correct fitting as for her chest it is covered much better than about 80% of the other chest peices I have seen for females and moving on to the charactor herself she is a MAGE to be exact an elementalist so she doesnt need full body covering armor as she would m8st likley be in the rear and depending on how she casts spells she may need some skin showing because she may draw energy frow her surroundings and the material in her armor may limit her ability to do so and you are all missing one EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FACTOR Maybe... she likes it she is a girl after all she could feel more attractive in it giving her pride and confidence as this to may be importent in casting spells

Now aside from my rant I think this armor is extravigent and beautifully composed the armor itself is a work of art and it still would be if it wher made with crayons but its not and it is one of the best styles of art I have ever seen needless to say I FRIGGEN LOVE THIS

I hope you don't mind me quoting you so as to make a few points.

" I dont think this armor is as revealing as you all say most of her rear is covered by her cape and hair"

Erm, this "armor" is actually very revealing.
The definition of revealing clothes is: "Of clothing allowing more than is usual to be seen."
This "armor" looks more like some sort of undergarment or something that a stereotypical prostitute would wear.

In a real fight, she would be the first person to die, because the "armor" does nothing to defend her.
In fact, this thing isn't even armor, there's only a few pieces of metal, and the rest of it looks like nothing more than thin silk.
One of the main tactics in medieval combat was to go after the one with the least defense, that way you wouldn't have to worry about multiple people.

With that in mind, the outfit she's wearing offers literally no protection whatsoever; making her the prime target in battle.
Spellcaster or not, it's very easy to get overwhelmed in a fight.

Also, it doesn't matter if her rear is covered or not, she is still showing far more skin than she should, and she is also showing every last one of her vital points.


"the front doesnt cover as much as it could at the bottom but that is justifiably as it could allow for a slightly wider range of movement"

It's a very common misconception that plate mail, or any form of armor, was incredibly heavy and offered little mobility.
Yes some armor was heavy, but not so much that wearing it caused you to struggle just to move.
If armor didn't offer that much mobility, they wouldn't have worn it back then, as the point of combat is to be able to move without restriction so as to avoid your opponent and help your weapon meet it's mark.
When people say "all in the footwork", there is truth to that.


"as for her chest it is covered much better than about 80% of the other chest peices I have seen for females"

If you've actually seen outfits/armor that are more skanky than this, than those outfits/armor must be borderline pornographic; and the women wearing them deserve to get impaled by a spear.


"moving on to the charactor herself she is a MAGE to be exact an elementalist so she doesnt need full body covering armor as she would m8st likley be in the rear"

Mage or no, wearing that little of armor is still going to make her a prime target.
Especially for archers, who can simply hide in bushes or sneak around her so as to shoot her in the back.
If she's in the rear, that also means the others wouldn't see the archers going after her, so staying in the rear would also be incredibly dangerous.


"depending on how she casts spells she may need some skin showing because she may draw energy frow her surroundings and the material in her armor may limit her ability to do so"

That sounds like an excuse that a perverted man would use so as to make his mage show this much skin.
Also, the possibility that she needs to show some skin, has a keyword in there.

That being, "some skin".
If all she needs to do is show some skin, she doesn't have to go practically naked.

Also, material doesn't seem to be much of a problem, as if it was, she still wouldn't need to show that much skin.


"you are all missing one EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FACTOR Maybe... she likes it she is a girl after all she could feel more attractive in it giving her pride and confidence as this to may be importent in casting spells"

Alright, as I am a guy, I can't really speak for women, but I can say that I highly doubt that any woman would willingly dress like this in battle, just because she likes it and/or wants to.

Women would more than likely look at this, and see how impractical it would be to wear into battle, and would probably ask for something that wouldn't make every enemy on the field go after her.
Also, without trying to sound rude or sexist, if a woman needs to be practically naked so as to feel pride and confidence, than I feel very sorry for her, because that doesn't sound right at all.

Well, that's all I've got to say.
Fantasy or not, this "armor" is still highly impractical and would lead this woman to her death sooner or later.

I love the artwork, and I enjoy seeing such creative and beautiful designs!

Although I must ask, why is it so revealing?
