the cross belt is meant to support the waist best so it won't fall down due to the weight of the gear carried by it, like a holster and map case, whereas the third belt, the one hanging loosely from the waist belt is meant to carry the sword
Yeah. I got my perceptions from the only female commissar I've read about in Guard fiction is Lady Commissar-General Balshin from the Gaunt series. She's described as being older with closed cropped hair like a man's.
Love the uniform design, and I'm used to your art style enough that I'm aware it's female by looking at her. Put it at the bottom of your to-do list, but it'd be cool if you drew a follow up of her in combat with a gas mask, or something.
Anyway, I like how the design isn't over-sexualized. Great job.
At first, it must have been a guardsman's wet dream, but the new female commissars are stepping away from the past of sexual arousal and are actually becoming the bad-asses that all commissars wish they could be.
I know!! A lot of people think that drawing female soldiers is drawing some scantily clad prostitute, when in a realistic situation, that's just not practical. XD I used to do some training and ours is exactly the same thing men wear save for buttons on a different side!
