Why would you give up all the credit you deserve for your words?

For a while, I’ve been trying to find tutorials on drawing and designing armor, but I can never find any. Do you know any good armor designing/drawing tutorials I can use?


I’ve looked through my drawing resources tag, and I haven’t found much in the way of armor tutorials (there’s a few that talk about what breasts look like in armor, you might want to check those out).  There was one submission that linked to a blog post by the submitter that talked about designing armor, but the post has since been removed. :

So, I’m asking here.  Does anybody know any good tutorials/resources for drawing and designing armor?  Since, it’s this blog, if there is anything specifically for women’s armor, that would be pretty good for future reference too. 🙂

Of course, I run a whole blog about female armor!

Let me recommend my armor design and positive examples tags.
Also check out list of related sites, especially armor references on Art-And-Sterf, Repair Her Armorria-RHA and Women Fighters in Reasonable Armor.

A friendly suggestion…

…especially if you’re new to Tumblr.

While reblogging a text post, especially a longer one, make sure that it stays in the text form, not the link form (the abridged one with the ugly green bar at the top).

To change the type of post, choose appropriate icon in the upper right corner of the post-making window (the one next to the cog icon).

Please reblog posts as links only when you intend them to be abridged.



Hi, I just found this blog and I think it’s the coolest thing ever. I was curious: What’s your opinion on skimpy armor being an option, but not a requirement?
For MMOs and the like, having a choice between skimpy and practical armor would be great! I should stress though that the option should be available on both genders.
For games with a set outfit, however, characters should dress in a way that fits their personalities.

Wait, that’s an intereting idea if it was also installed in battle mechanics and you could get different accomplishments for wearing different sets of armor. Sexy armor would make you esaier to be hit, but would allow to easier gain rewards for accomplishments like “belly of iron/steel/titanium” (“get hit in the stomach 20/50/100 times but continue fighting without healing”). Protective armor however would allow you to gain accomplishments like “Stop trying to hit me and hit me!” (get hit and have armor take all the damage 100 times”).

Somebody needs to make it happen. Just to have “hardcore gamers” going through every outfit possible to get all accomplihsments.

I like your way of thinking 😉

In-game accomplishments based on the kind of outfit you’re wearing sound awesome!
