Splendid, Glitch: it really looks like a highly Cassie-appropriate attire, despite using much more muted colors than is typical for her design. I'm usually not one to nit-pick critique someone else's design, but have you considered halving the length of the zipper sticker, so that it only runs the length of the blue portion of her torso? I wonder if that might not emphasize, a little better, the effect of the top (matte grey) half looking like an independent breastplate, somewhat contiguous with the spaulder.

I'm not sure if the brown sticker itself is meant to have appearance of a piece of belting running over the breastplate and then across the abdomen. If so, it does kind of work (utilizing that technique you are so well known for here, raising the impression of depth out of contrasting flat textures and detail work), though the effect is only slightly spoiled by the fact that it attaches to that rather flimsy cord belt that is a part of that loincloth base equipment. But I wonder if the overall effect might not be better if the zipper sticker were shrank slightly and moved down so that it's top edge appears to run under/attach to the underside of the breastplate, and the bottom edge connected with the brown lateral segment near the horizontal line of the hips (the one which you have emphasized with the gold buttons using, I think, the pocket stickers). That way, whether the eye of the viewer interprets it as a) a belt, b) a revealed strip of a lower-level garment, or c) a colored strip of the cloth covering the abdomen, it looks natural regardless, and the breast plate might stand out even better.

That's just a myopic little observation, though--let me re-emphasize that regardless of technical workshopping chitchat on such a small detail, this is a really nice piece of work, regardless!

Thank you! @Rusted Blade you know, this design is pretty old. i made it back in March, but never posted it. i agree, if i made zipper sticker smaller it'll probably look much better. originally, it was intended to be a generic soldier amour design. i didn't really put much thought into it, hence why it was scrapped. i'm glad you like it tho - i might bring it back if i can make it look more presentable 👍

A brief return! i made this design for 2B months ago but i'm just now posting it🤣 . i think it was around the same time that i improved my OC Kiara design. then a week later i created Shani using the same foundation. also this was suppose to be the Human Form of 2B - fan fiction

Everything you come up with is totally solid, but I particularly love the asymmetry here, very cool indeed and it completely suits 2B!

A million thanks! sorry for the late reply, i was very sick. but yeah, i tried my best to make the design look Nier-ish?? because both Nier and Drakengard have some creative designs, as well as some wacky ones lol

Forgive me inserting a reference to my own stuff here, Glitch, but she genuinely feels to me like the boss fight my 'Siege Buster' 2B would find waiting for her in the throne room after infiltrating the...High Castle of Reve..borough..ah..nyla... [that's supposed trailing off into nonsense generic fantasy name].

I love that! i'm just now seeing your Siege Buster 2B - she's pretty sick! a cross over battle between your universe of characters and mines sounds so cool man.😁💖

Thank you! Yeah, I should import the style notes/head canon notes from the original threads into the compiled one; anyway, the whole subtext for that design was the idea of a kind of magitech/modern fantasy notion of an elite powerhouse soldier deployed to gain ingress into fortified positions and clearing the way for regulars. Silly amount of contextual detail for stylization of a creation, but what can I say, these thoughts always bubble up as I am working on a design and oftentimes begin the shape my choices as the process gets further along. Anyway, in that context, I couldn't help but imagine your custom 2B as the real obstacle at the end of an assault. ;)

Ah well, there's also my reinterpretation of Raphael as a brutal and ambitious crusader, 'Rafael of Antioch', who could tonally seems like he could rub shoulders with your Knight Templar. ;)

Nice! i love when people give their original characters unique designs and fleshed out backstories. also, i really like your Rafeal of Antioch. the facial hair is a nice touch, he looks very regal. i can definitely see him and Tobias going to war😁
