I keep getting this question a lot and this still exists in tutorial books, concept art etc. Please stop doing it.
edit: It’s not about realism, more about common sense over fashion. How can women admire and relate to “strong female roles” when sexiness is valued over everything.
Every time we share a parody tutorial like this, part of me worries that it will be mistake for real advice due to the general state of media that includes female armor.
Bringing this back simply because while we’ve talked about glass cannons and engineering – it’s important to remember that it really doesn’t take much effort to avoid the many bikini armor cliches that plague modern media.
