Within a lot of content these days, women are not well portrayed. So I wanted to design a female soldier that would wear just slightly more than a G-String. I see no reason why they can't look just as cool as the male characters, and frankly all you have to do is google "soldier" to realize they look just as awesome in the same gear.
I had to exert a great deal of self control not to over blend this, I like the result quite a bit, and I'm going to keep going in this direction. I think the painting classes have been paying off a bit.
