This is pretty much Lady Liadrin, her armor looks so amazing here.  I wish the sword and shield were available in-game!

Very nice, I dig the perspective here mostly cuz I suck at perspective.. You're one of the few artists I've seen who makes blood elf women look good. The in-game model is a bit too skinny I think, hehe. ^^;

Don't use phrases that you don't even understand what they mean...

And quit making stupid replies to posts that are 2 years old.

Saying they're never protected there is a bit of a stretch because they do carry that massive shield with them.
Real history tells us that most killing strikes were aimed at the head and at the legs against shield wielding soldiers because of how the shield blocks many lines of attack simultaneously, yet they're head and legs from below the knees are often exposed. So, I'd worry more about her exposed head than her waist.

Good luck blocking that arrow you don't see coming with a shield....
Arrows were always aimed at the body as it was the biggest target and it was hard to be accurate, so that armour is pretty useless.

I've seen men wear even worse armor, so I don't know why you're complaining.

That's a argumentative fallacy. By your logic I can't complain about a murder because it's less horrific than mass genocide.
I am well within my right to complain about poor design, irrespective of how any other thing has been designed... Let's get this straight, the artwork is great, but the art direction and thusly the design from Blizzard is awful.

When women wear impractical armor, they get bashed; when men wear impractical armor, they get praised. I've even seen female warriors wear better protection and show less skin receive more criticism than a shirtless male warrior.

What the hell are you talking about and how is any of that even remotely relevant?

The armour is impractical and would NEVER be worn by anyone actually wanting to go into battle. Everything you wrote is just an irrelevant anecdote that has no bearing on this piece of art.

Face it, the design of this armour just looks stupid. It has nothing to do with whether a man or woman is wearing it, it would be just as bad on either.

If you have nothing further to say to me other than whatever I'm saying is 'completely irrelevant', then you'd only be wasting your time with another reply.

How is it remotely relevant, you ask? Because I only find these types of comments on women, but never on the men.

Take a look at this [link] Do you see anybody criticizing his exposed upper body? Now compare him to this [link] This female knight does have her flaws, but you and I can both agree that she's certainly wearing better protection than the man is, yet who received the most criticism? The female knight received criticism, but the man hasn't received a single one. Even this female warrior [link] has been criticized for her exposed legs, yet this man hasn't received any criticism regarding his exposed head, arms and chest--and if you look closely at this guy, even his legs are just as badly exposed, at least to a blade. So, really, he shares the same flaws as these women plus more, yet he received no criticisms.

You honestly think nobody would wear that sort of armor into battle? Dude, the fucking Celts went into battle naked, their only 'armor' was their war-paint, so I'm pretty sure there would be those willing to fight with their stomachs showing. Hell, the Aztecs fought in pretty little armor didn't they? So, if you're saying that nobody back then would wear such armor because it's too impractical, read your history books.

By the way, I just love how you're bashing this artwork for being 'impractical' and something that nobody would wear when you have this [link] in your favorites. Yeah, nobody would wear armor that shows off their bellies, but they sure would strap a sword to their backs and wield a double-headed axe into battle.
Honestly, I find you as hypocritical as the guy who drew this [link] Why, you may ask? Here's a quote from him in regards of the original Red Sonja's bikini-armor, "Nevermind the gut - that bleeds like crazy when stabbed or, I dunno, the rest of the chest"
Now how about you compare his Red Sonja to the original's [link] Granted his version of Red Sonja isn't as sexualized as the original or the numerous of fan-arts there are of her, but they both still share the same flaw: exposed guts, exposed chests, exposed arms and legs.

I disagree, I don't think the design of the armor looks stupid at all--I actually like it and favored it.
