This has probably been done before, but anyway.
Skyrim is a pretty girl-friendly videogame, as it has many well-developed female characters in pretty much all social levels, from waitress to jarls. Aaand, armors are not silly chain-mail bikinis which is something to be thankful for XDD
I just wished Bethesda would have released a female counterpart for their official poster artwork :_) Soooo I made my own thing, based in my very own dovahkiin ♥
Already on my tumblr. Please reblog, do not repost.
Also, this just looks fantastic.
I know what you mean, I don't buy a single game unless it has a female option, creativity option or a YouTube option, Example: Black Ops 2/Skate 3
Anyways, i love your chara design i particularly like how her hair frames her waist
A well made female version of the original poster concept.
I am one of those males (any others out there?) who likes to play RPG games almost solely with female characters but I am also one who prefers (or more likely requires) to have practical armors to "wear". Chainmail bikini "armor" is something which belongs to Conan the Barbarian but if we talk about serious fantasy (be it books, comics or games) practical female armors are one thing that cannot be overlooked. Now in my opinion female armors can be good looking and if possible have a bit of "feminine" feeling but before anything those must be practical and protect the wearer from enemy blows. Vital areas must be covered, NOT revealed. After all that is just the main point of a body armor.
In this perspective Elder Scrolls games (Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim) deserve a big praise.
My rant ends
Anyway, love, love, love the pic! One thing I hate about games where you can choose your sex is that the canon is usually gonna say the character's male, and marketing is always, without fail, a man. They did it with Skyrim, Fallout, Fable, and Mass Effect, to name a few. I want just once (Well I want it to happen a lot more but at the very very least just once) for a game to be marketed with a girl. It feels kind of like I'm being told "Aww, you can play a girl, sweetheart. Oh, the character is still totally a man, but you can play pretend if you like!"
Well, I like to look upon beautifull female curves as much as the next man but only when it is appropriate. NOT so when we speak about serious female charachters.
I have also always been interested about strong female charachters when it comes to fantasy settings and for example Eowyn from the LOTR is one of my favorite ones. And like said when it comes to games I like female playing charachters better. Be it Dragon Age, Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim etc. I have also made quite much art related to those same playing charachters. Some 10-15 years ago I also created an original charachter named Aldarian (A Dunadan noble with royal blood in Middle Earth settings) and wrote about 150 pages long story about her. With her I tried to create a credible female charachter who had many good and strong abilities but also many negative ones. She is still one of my favorite drawing subjects.
But now I have rambled already too much about myself.
Would have been awesome to see the live action commercial with a female protagonist as well
freaking awesome!!!!! ^_^
VERY EPIC!!!!!! ^_^
I also agree with your comment about the bikini armor. Even as a male, and going waaayy back to my earliest role playing days, I never understood how fighting in a chain mail bikini was going to do much in the way of protection against a longsword. The only stat I think it would have been defensive, and only if there was a "distraction" stat.
