lol too true. I just don’t get why some fantasy creators feel they need to sacrifice safety for attractiveness, it’s actually not hard to make fantasy armor that is both effective and sexy.

All you need to do is clad the limbs and chest in shaped plated armor and put chainmail and/or something similar to modern bulletproof cloth over the midriff and areas that can’t be covered in armor and have it go up the neck a bit and you got something that both looks good and can actually catch a sword and arrow. Now everyone can be happy.

Honestly, though, full plate armor wouldn't have stopped those arrows anyway.

There's a bunch of these. They managed some decent penetration at very close range. But it has to be a perfect shot.

funny thing is, this type of armor never was a toe to toe armor, but hide in trees and sling arrows

Just now I was having a discussion about how bad Hollywood is about including realistic female characters, and I went to post my saved text edit from years ago. I'm better about citing sources nowadays, so I Google image searched for the original... I feel bad that it was so difficult to find this one instead of a silly edit I did before I even knew how to add a border to text. ;-;

yeah, but nobody complains when the guys go like Conan, mostly naked, yeah because abs protect you from arrows, "logic" i guess. xD.

Double standars, the problem is because the girls show "skin" aka boobs and it's "sexualized".

Bullshit. xD

Conan fights butt naked because he wants to show off how badass he is and give the impression he’s gotten good at blocking blows to the point he doesn’t need armor, and it adds to the intimidation factor.

 Context is what you missing in bringing up "Conan". I'm not too familiar with that universe but I doubt his attire is ever presented as armor. Some who's more familiar with Conan novels can correct me on this.

You forget Zula from Conan the Destroyer. She had bairly anything on and yet she wasn't sexualized. Infact she was a total bad ass

So? What are you trying to say? Elaborate. She's not a guy from Conan that fellow was referring to.

yes but he said "the problem is because the girls show "skin" aka boobs and it's "sexualized"." that's not always true. and Zula is a prime example.

 Yeah. That is correct. Also if I remember correctly ther's no claim that her outfit is armor. Well aside from that metal cap she's wearing.
Reply
:iconusoutlaw:
usoutlaw Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2018
But she is still a warrior and has what looks like some sort of animal tail as a totem or trophy. So we can assume that that is what she would normally wear to battle. No I would say that Conan look dressing like he did is definitely him being sexualized.

So? What her being a warrior has to do with anything? What all this have to do with stupid "armors".

"context" the guy fight half naked, against other warriors more armored, he dodges arrows and that shit.
Kratos is almost naked too, but ey the dude is badass and powerfull, that's enough.
Yeah "context", nobody care about the context, do you know if the female character wearing that "armor" has superhuman powers or something, she is fast enough to dodge arrows or block them with her weapon, or use powers to defend herself, or being skilled with a sword or a weapon, or another millon of imaginative things a fictional character can do, but nah it's a woman showing a bit of skin,  she is going to die.
No I am not feminist, I just find this thing stupid, for both sexs, a lot of men do the same bullshit but nodoby compalins xD.

 Way to miss a point there guy. At what point in those stories their attire is presented as being armor? But ey got an agenda to push, so you'll just ignore small details like that. If the woman was running naked into battle that's fine, when you give her a chain mail bikini and claim it's some kind of cool armor that's stupid.
 Again context. I have very little tolerance for demagogues, so don't do that.

It's bullshit when Conan does it too.  But don't be under any illusions that Conan is shirtless for the benefit of the ladies, particularly when the character himself is such a dick.

No fantasy artist actually believes this is a realistic portrayal of armour for women. They all know it's the for the sex appeal, just like we do. Putting this image in front of them isn't gonna stop them from drawing scantily clad women (which I'm fine with, personally) ;)

Well, it would just be nice if the portrayal of armour was consistent.  I like drawing naked women myself, but they aren't going to be doing it on any battlefield.

I was referring to the functionality of the armor. Even in the simplistic game Minecraft, both sexes can wear full armor, and wearing less armor means taking more damage. Tony Stark wears full armor, Master Chief wears full armor, the Brotherhood of Steel wears full armor...

Saw this image lying around somewhere random and decided to track it's source, which led me here, to commend you for the brilliant and hilarious depiction of ridiculous armour. 

I was not disappointed when I saw the rest of your gallery. Good work!
