Might as well leave this here.
The sash/skirt thing could be due to the lack of a neck tie, a jacket, demin preferably, would give her a rougher look, especially on top of the otherwise feminine corset. Shades are for rule of cool, as well as the fact that she is missing a way to shield her eyes, something she might be needing if she goes - flying in the sun, and gain her an advantage in gear wars, as she outside would be able to navigate with the sun in her face, while she inside, in darker buildings, would have to adjust her eyes from darker to lighter, and not lighter to darker, which does take a while.

I am a big fan of these suggestions!

1) I'll figure out a way for the sash not to completely conceal the tatt.
2) Denim jacket, totally.
3) Shorter, bulkier gloves.
4) I may have to think about the shape of the shades.
5) What should I do about the chaps? And the air tracks... how do I make them look more... cohesive?

4) Yes, I didn't quite manage with that, I just imagined her looking over the top of the shades.
5) The chaps and the air tracks works, at least in my opinion. The air tracks could get more "boot"-y with some stitches and a more tough toe, but otherwise I do think looks great. Perhaps search up a western style boot to locate the patterning better (I believe it's on the side normally), and for colouring, either keep the entire AT in leather, or at least the shin part of it.

The results of the second round of edits:

Note that I also increased the width of the belt. Extraneous straps on the gloves are such a manga thing. While Crimson's emblem is a heartagram, her secondary feature is the rose: this'll feature in the design on the ATs, as well as on the rotating joints and the clasps that hold both the sash and the chaps to the belt (I still can't get comfortable with an actual leather boot AT... leather boots don't flex at the ankle at all!!!! I'll think about it.)

Once we reach an agreement I'll line and colour it. I think I might even bump up the resolution so I can get some REAL detail work on it haha.

She is going to kick our butts with her eyes closed...
It looks good. I do agree about boot-based AT, especially in leather, would never be a good idea. If it wasn't clear from my comment above, it was mainly to try and imitate the design, while the jointed parts seems a lot better, especially considering the design of an anthro horse ancle and foot. You might want to remove the soal.. sole? of the boot ont the ATs, it looks clumpsy, and the previous design of the footing part of the ATs was probably the best for her, as it looks far more graceful.
Other than that, yes, she is going to kick our butts. Or do a wheel spin in our faces or something similar.
Good job, she would be manga worthy.

I'll run my road into your face!!! (Sounds a bit like Agito, that bishie creeper).

Yes, I quite like the way this has turned out, I'll do a bigger version and pretty it up and all. I doubt a tartan sash would work, but we'll see.

Guys, I have a confession to make.

...

I freaking hate doing clean lineart.

Note that the hair and stuff is uncleaned lines from a prior layer. Oh god this had better looking awesome coloured or I am going to rage!

She has to have proper hair, doesn't she.
Or at least not sketchy lines.
(And yes, I did reline that entire picture just for that and some details.)

We're finally starting to get a little somewhere.

There's still a very long way to go, though.

What colour should the gloves, chaps, and boots be?

Doubtless some of you are getting sick of daily updates on this... but hey, fleshing out a concept takes time!

Wonder what colour the wheels should be. After this, it's time to render and detail! Piercings, glasses, hair, leathers, jacket, corset, sash, chaps and gloves, boots... each with their unique material characteristics. And then what to do with the background...
