I like the overall design of it, but I might need to make a note that when it comes to black operations you have to be quick, unnoticed, and as discreet as possible. To that effect, the armor for BlackOps needs to be compact, light, and easy to maneuver in. As with reconnaissance and stealth reconnaissance one has to be able to get from point A to point B without drawing too much, if any, attention to ones self.

As I said, the over all design is amazing. The visor is well made for minimal light, the chest and neck armor are very good for both maneuverability and protection under fire, and the arm pieces are linked together for maximum maneuverability. My only complaints are the thigh pieces seem a bit bulky, especially for BlackOps, and the ammo and supply pouches seem a bit too big. Beyond those points, I love the design. ^_^

Should have put less armor on her thighs and arms. Make it more feminine. :D

Femenizing armor is against policy :P

Well, I'm only mentioning it cause the wearer IS a girl...

How do you achieve that, blueish tint toward the centre of all of your work? It adds an amazing layer of definition and style. Would love to be able to do that..

If you have Photoshop it's nothing fancy. Using a levels adjustment layer, you can play with the individual color channels to add color. Particularly the dark ends of the red and blue channels.

pretty awesome, like the odd proportions, usually when a female version of any form is drawn, people tend to emphisize the more "female" parts, but you seem to have made a good example of how it can be avoided and still achieve good work. Is there a human under this armour? guess it is not important. nice work!

In proper realism you wouldn't be able to tell it was a girl. But indicate some boobs or a petite form under the load and it's all too easy.
It is a human, but I messed up the neck/shoulders.

agreed, the neck is out of proportion, but I still like it, in my mind it could be any female creature under there.
