Crimson Costume Concept by Kat-Nicholson Crimson Costume Concept by Kat-Nicholson
Just a bit more development on this character I posted yesterday:

Drawn last night while Jas re-played the last few levels of Mass Effect 3. :3

*QueenyProductions :iconqueenyproductions: had prompted me to think about what Crimson's uniform might look like so I doodled this.. - it must be pretty tough to get clothes to fit when your body is that shape! ... she'd have to get things especially made, but I expect there would be a big temptation to just cover the top half and forget about the rest... although it leaves me to wonder if you'd still feel "naked" in the same way, even if your body was no longer entirely human? o.O ... we don't look at horses or dogs and see them as naked... - is that cos they're furry or cos they just don't wear clothes? .. hrrmm.. this character is certainly churning up more questions than answers in my mind!

Made on the iPad using Procreate.

I love a centaur type humanoid every once in a while. This is a sweet design and I love the colours and costuming. She does look a bit like she'd like a bit of lower coverage, haha, but maybe just a bit more fabric where it's going over her back or something. Cool character either way.

Hey ya! How goes? :) Haven't seen or heard from you in a while! :) - You keeping well? :)
Yeah I know what ya mean, but at the same time I'm kinda torn between "coverage" and convenience... - it must hinder movement somewhat if not properly designed/made out of a durable enough fabric, and getting Dressed when your body is that shape must be a nightmare! o.O ... - I would like to have a bit more of a play with her tho.. when I'm feeling the right mood `:]

Yeah, I'm doing well, I just have a bad habit of dropping in and out of things for loooong stretches :) Still, nice to see some familiar faces around when I do come crawling back ;P Though your name change did comfuse me slightly :D I know what you mean about convenient clothes, it wouldn't have occured to me if someone else hadn't said it. I've had enough headaches figuring out how to dress character's with wings :P

Well I'm glad to see you're back... here's hoping you stick around a little! ;) :D
Yeah sorry about the name change... it's amazing how many people still haven't realised or don't recognise me, but it made sense for me to do it so I think it'll all work out in the end. `:] Yeah wings are another pain in the butt type of thing... I think open back tops that perhaps tie around under the wings are probably the best bet, but you'd really have to trust your knot tying to avoid the risk of anything coming loose while you're flying about! ;)

The eternal question of all right thinking people - why don't centaurs/centaur like creatures wear trousers?
Surely if they're bashful enough to wear clothes on their torso they have to be a little concerned (particularly in the case of the males) of their bits being there for all the world to see.

Great work - love the uniform design. It looks like it's being worn more as a remnant of the human half with the style of a military long coat adapted from maybe an original human uniform for a six legged creature.

i actually remember reading a picture book about a centaur who wore a suit once when i was a kid... It first threw up that whole nudity question to me and to be honest it hasn't really been answered to this day o.o

My question is, what kind of bed would she sleep in? Would she sleep on her side, curled up in a ball, in a special hammock?

That's what I always wanted to know about centaurish people.

well, she started out as a human, so I imagine she'd begin by trying to sleep on her regular bed, but I'm not sure how comfortable that would be for the long-term... maybe some kind of massive bed, or just a room with a padded floor! ;) lol ... a hammock is a good idea too although I imagine it could be even tricker to get in and out of w/this form :3 (and the risk of getting tangled up in it could be pretty great too :3 .. it's certainly something to think about tho! :D

That is bleepin' epic, it looks like the old fashioned "Dress Uniforms" that the emergency services used to have :nod:

It really suits her, even the ginger / navy colours match up in that smart-formal way that all good uniforms do :thumbsup:

I really hope you draw the epic mech suit one day, I can't wait to see it :eager:

hey cheers for all the comments and favs babe! ^_^
I'd love to draw the epic mech suit, but I really doubt I've got the skills to realise what I had in mind.. - robots/mech never was my strong point! x.X
Hey, when are you gonna be at AA? I can't wait to see you! :D I hope you're ready to rock with me to Jason's set on saturday night?! :D

Pfft, girlfriend plz. I was born ready! :headbang:

As I sit here with the BADASS COP LADY CENTAUR theme in my brain, my air guitars are neatly racked against the wall. Each one has been freshly polished with the fur of newborn kittens and re-strung with the hairs of Odin's beard. At sunrise tomorrow I shall wrap them in my Sunstorm costume and set off to Birmingham on my Gallomp steed with TEH MULL3T blowing in the breeze :iconairguitarplz:

I'll be there for the entire weekend, so just look out for the toolbox with the silly haircut :highfive:

I love her uniform, reminds me of Commander Shepard's admiral uniform. It carries the right amount of authority and style, she'll kick ass and look good XD

Hi ya! Yeah, i think shepard has influenced her quite a lot.... She certainly seemed to have that kind of power and drive in my dream.. And its very unusual for me to dream of sci fi things like mech suits so i can only imagine that probably all came from watching jas playing me3 too :3

You said she was some kind of "Law-Bringer" before... does she use equipment or weaponry? or is her new body the only weapon she requires?

Love the jacket, but looks kinda like a dress uniform. Very swanky!! =)

She had a mech suit, and some kind of weird lazer-blade thing (which I can hardly remember now) but generally this body in the custom mech was all the close-range weaponary she needed... - not so sure about long range combat though! maybe some kind of bow? (I've never been much of a fan of guns)
Yeah this jacket is meant to be an adaptation of the uniform she would have worn before her "change" ... I might have a play with more casual clothes too.. I would really love to have a go at drawing up the mech but I know my skills in that kind of technical/robot esque drawing are not great to say the least :/
