Inspector Fox by a3dp Inspector Fox by a3dp
My take on Inspector Carmelita Montoya Fox from the Sly Cooper series.

Working on my children's book project helped me to gain my confidence in drawing animals. So I wanted to practice and hone my skill a little bit more.

As you can see, I changed up Carmelita's uniform a little. I went for a more sporty, practical look. Let's face it, when you're chasing down criminals, you need to wear clothes that are more functional than fashionable (C'mon Sanzaru... a mini skirt and knee-high boots? What were you thinking?!?).

Forgive me for the piss-poor shock pistol. I don't draw weapons much, and this was my first attempt at drawing any kind of firearm in a looooooooooooong time.

Anyway, hope u like! I might draw some more Sly Cooper stuff in the future. Maybe some SlyxCarmelita fluff... Who knows.

Well, wish me luck on finals, and I'll have more for you guys soon!

Carmelita belongs to the Sly Cooper franchise/Sanzaru/Sucker-Punch

Props to you. I think wearing shorts makes more sense than a mini skirt. Think of the wardrobe malfunctions she'd suffer. XD
Although I'm used to it; I'm sure Sanzaru heard the complaints. And if they make future Sly gams; they'll take that into consideration.
Nicely done my friend. :)

Looks fantastic, and I agree with you on the outfit. I remembered Carmelita being a strong cop who was always focused on her work. Now.. Well now she's just there for her looks. She barely had any missions in Sly 4 conspired to 3, and after playing the belly dancing episode just made both Sly and Carmelita look bad. Sly went from being a respected young man to an old pervert. Carmelita from a tough cop to a sex object.  

Anyways, I'm sure your sick of the rants, so let me tell you about the actual piece of art. 

Your skill in drawing cartoon animals is fantastic. The colors are bold, and the style is unique; it looks very professional. The gun kinda looks weird without the details like the trigger ( Being the FPS snob I am), but I wouldn't worry too much about it. As long as people know what it is, it's still good.

Overall, great job :D

Hahaha!  Thanks! :D  I'm gonna be drawing more Carmelita Fox for sure.  So I'm sure I'll be able to get the hang of drawing the shock pistol soon enough.  Practice makes perfect, right? Thumbs Up

Thanks, dude. And no you didn't sound creepy. That's what I was going for: Cute and sexy all at once.

I'm definitely going to try and draw more Sly characters. I'm actually going to be doing an art trade soon where I was recruited to draw Tennessee Kid Cooper. If that works out, I might try to draw more of Sly's ancestors and of course Sly himself.

Yeah, that was one thing that bothered me. The style of Carmelita that Sanzaru had placed really bothered me as a whole. I felt like they designed her specifically for the male audience.. She was one of my favorite female characters in the Sly series because she was portrayed as a strong female cop, and her outfit was very functional.

I like what you did. It's still shows that she can be girly, but it's much more functional. I also like your style, it's cartoony but shows she has a personality. Also, I wouldn't worry about the shock pistol, it really works out with the style you chose. XD All in all, it's a really cool take on Carmelita.

Thanks so much! :D

I agree. Sanzaru didn't have to do that. I know that Sucker Punch kinda gave them full creative control in redesigning the characters and stuff like that, but they didn't have to make Carmelita's outfit so... revealing. Not to mention dysfunctional. What female cop goes around beating up criminals while wearing a mini skirt and high heeled knee high boots?

You can still be pretty wearing combat boots and a bulletproof vest, right? Lol.

Liano-Sensei Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The boots.. I am ok with, though they might be a tight fit around where the leg bends, but they seem a little more functional.. than that.. miniskirt. I was kind of hoping they would have stayed with the jeans. I was also bothered by how her anatomy was around sides. As if they had to exaggerate that she is curvy. XD /sigh

Oh, of course. If anything: I think it makes her have a tough, sexy appeal. Haha. Being a female myself, I would have preferred something like that because it shows she is protected from some harm. XDDD

This style, I dig. It comes to me as a mix of Crash and Sonic's old styles. :D

Though it's also similar to some other style that I'm not quite certain of.

Neat character! I'd love to draw Rio for you!

And in return, could you draw my Sonic fan character Chaos for me?

Here's what she looks like:[link]
You can do whatever with her costume. I give you full artistic freedom with that.
