Thats.....just brilliant. But I imagine the big dagger may be a let down for stealth, right

I agree withe most of these comments she doesn't seem to be a theif as much as a fighter that relies on speed in a fight rather than full armor this is a very unique rendering of a theif though her weapon doesnt seen to fit her as much as a dagger I would be much more plausible if the metal where gone and her weapon wher more dagger based rather than a short sword based weapon

Should have known: Search Deviant Art for Thief Armor, first result pops up and you find an argument in the comments about how wrong the picture is. Personally, it's not a bad drawing, but it's definitely not fitting for a thief.

For all of the hater of this awesome artwork, be quiet. It's call fantasy for a reason.

It may be fantasy but seriusly. even in fantasy worlds their ahs to be some form of actual laws that go into the world. laws of physics and stuff. no self respecting women, be she a thief or a assassin, would wear this little amount of armor casue a well anything would be able to actually kill her. she would die wearing this for battle. you may as well send her in naked painted neon bright colors and give her a stick to roast her self with. i respect females and believe that they deserve to wear something that would actually keep them alive. i do not belive, fantasy or no, that any self respecting women would wear this to fight in.

No it's not...
It's a semi-BDSM fantasy targeted towards teenage audiences, that's what it is.

Yeees, thank you... It's supposed to be fantasy, of course, but not THAT kind of fantasy. XDD

... And even in a SFW fantasy, it wouldn't work that well... =u=; One, it objectifies the character. Two, it just looks kinda, well, silly. XD

If she's a thief, why she is a wearing single metal shoulder pad and a metal buster...or the metal leg armour for that matter?

Those pieces wouldn't be very flexible, and the belt looks pretty clunky as well. The sheer amount of gaps in the armour would leave her with no protection; in fact her heart abdomen are completely exposed. Even in fantasy most thieves will cover those areas, they just use lighter armour with more give. I get wanting something to look unique and all, but a lot of this outfit makes very little sense, unless the main focus here is for her to use seduction based abilities.

So true. Just because it's a fantasy world doesn't mean it's gotta be 100% illogical. I mean, come on.

The problem is the outfit sticks out like a sore thumb. If someone saw a person in that outfit they would remember; they would likely be able to act as a witness.

Thieves are about stealth and remaining unseen, or making a quick getaway if needs be. This outfit has so many bits that could get caught on something- such as the weird cufflinks and the smaller undone belts, that it would be more a hazard than anything else. The fact that the main colours on the front of it are red and sliver (from the armoured bits) wouldn't be good for sneaking about.
