Why is this not a set in the store. I will happily pay 5 dolla for it. MAKE IT HAPPEN PEOPLE. 
tengizi Featured By Owner Edited Apr 3, 2016
Will this or the other one ever show up in Dota 2 store? :( I'd gladly pay for it
Law-lie Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2016
I would love to cosplay her as your concept! (And maybe the Lunar Oni too)
But I have some questions :/ I can't guess the fabric of the armbands. Are they made of wood or leather? I think it's in wood but I don't want to make a mistake! And I think that the bodice is adorned by golden brass... Isnt'it? 
Thank you some much if you accept to answer me ^^ Heart 
TrungTH Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
First of all,I'm so glad that you chose my concept to cosplay.

Those bracers are leather. And yeah, bodice things are sort of copper/brass.
Law-lie Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2016
You're welcome! It's really beautiful!
Thank you for your answer, It will help me a lot!  
Copper seems better for this part. I'll do my best! I'll begin the fabric in few weeks.

awesome set 
I wish to have it..
X31r Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2015
Unfortunate that the actual set doesn't look as good as your art :(
TrungTH Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, the reason is the budget of polis for her is very low, so we can't make anything too detailed. But don't worry, she has a new slot now. We're going to remake it soon.

SnowRosette Featured By Owner Edited Jan 18, 2015
ok I got so excited that I posted twice... huh
SnowRosette Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2015
Just, just wow.
I've become a fan of yours when I first saw your PA and WR drawings a year ago (I watched the progressing videos and just thought you're freaking amazing). I'm a crazy TA fan who plays TA a lot and has purchased every piece of TA equipment and when I saw a TA set in workshop with your name mentioned I just had my mind blown. I visited your dA site again hoping to see something entirely awesome again and here's this... just wanna say, OH MY GOD I love this concept art so much especially the face <3... I'm sharing this to everyone I know.
ok the in-game TA face will probably still be creepy but... anyway hope to see your set in game soon! I was just too excited so I had to post such a long and redundant comment.
mugenrider Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2015
I waited so long to see this set turn into reality, but man, it's so rushed. I'm extremely disappointed. It's missing so much things from the concept art. It doesn't even have the shoulder piece! Textures are so low. I can't get myself to support this :(.

Fucking. Yes. Absolutely AMAZING! <3

QueenMaveric Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2014
Looks cool, but why is a "Winter" Wolf not wearing pants and exposing her chest? You'd think she'd be cold.
TrungTH Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Same question goes to every crystal maiden's sets. Haha xD She is the assassin man! She's trained for this :D
QueenMaveric Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014
Seem like gross pandering. It's really nice looking for the most part -- easily the best TA set -- but it's also yet another example of women being sex objects first and actual characters second. Men get to be big and muscly and powerful, with either huge abs and forearms showing, or covered in badass armour; women get to look sexy for men, be skinny and small, wear next to no armour and generally look weak and inferior.
TrungTH Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That depends on which perspective you're seeing. Let's talk about the perspective of art. The human body (especially the women's) has been the most standard structures and shapes for over centuries. It represents the beauty in every shapes and curves. It's so perfect that it gives us boner (I'm just kidding xD haha) But many designs were based and inspired by those shapes, even mechs and creatures. So the more curves it exposes, the more beautiful it looks. And base on that we can even tell the character's personality.

I bet nobody wants to see their character looks like the eskimo with tons of thick clothe and the only thing on her body that revealed is the face (or eyes). And can we get the actual character out of that?
QueenMaveric Featured By Owner Edited Nov 3, 2014
Problem is, women are made to look sexy first and foremost. "Good" design for a female character is one that shows off skin and looks good to men. Good design for a male character is one that looks badass and strong. The message is clear: a woman's appeal is her looks, not her strength or character. Her armour, her weapons, her personality - all of it serves how she looks. It's the opposite for men, with their looks serving how badass they are and powerful. Women are viewed by how they look to men first, and what they are second; women are considered in relation to others, not themselves. Designs like yours reinforce that and the cycle continues.

If this was a man, he'd either be large and badass, or his clothes would actually cover him. But it's a woman, so regardless of the icy conditions she is apparently meant to be in, she shows off her body. Women, again, are created to look good to men. And that's not only tiring as hell to deal with, it's sad.

EDIT: I mean, she is literally impossibly thin; her breasts are so far forward and her posture is painful and her wast is absurdly narrow. The ideal image of a woman - small, thing, fragile, non-threatening. It's not even just the negative impact this impossible body image has on women and girls, and the wider affect that has on society's view of women, it's also just a huge handicap on artists and gets extremely boring to see. When people draw men, they can be fat, tall, muscly - just look at how varied the bodies are of the men you've drawn (you're an amazing drawer, btw) and see how interesting they are. The women all have the same body and their clothes are fashion shows to show off their figure and tits.
TrungTH Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Umm so your point is we should not make the characters look more beautiful and attractive but more realistic or what?

Speaking of the design, I don't agree with you. Just look at all the male characters in Dota2, not all of them has strong looking design. Like witch doctor is short and has potbelly, thin like shadow shaman, small like riki or sniper. And the designers still have to adapt with it. In fact, there are still many awesome sets for them. Same as the females one, medusa, broodmother, do they look sexy to you?
QueenMaveric Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014
Yes, the male characters are varied. That's the point, though. The women are all thin, all the same height, all with the same body. The best counter to that is a spider and a snake cursed by the gods to be hideous, because beauty was a- nevermind. Read the Greek mythos if you wanna know why Medusa looks the way she does and how that is the exact same story of female objectification.

Do you honestly not see what I'm talking about? Look at your art. Scroll through Deviant Art. Look at the women. They are ALL sexualized in the same ways. While there's nothing wrong with *a* sexy woman, that's not what happens; women as a whole are objectified and each single example adds up to a culture of sexism.

Think about the mentality behind a good looking character. If you are drawing a man, he can be anything, right? But a woman will almost *always* be stupidly thin (again, your TA's waist and bust is literally impossible) and *always* designed to be sexy to men. That's how we as a society think of women and it's so strong within us that is crosses the line between reality and fiction, resulting in a world where talking spiders, walking trees and giant orcs exist, but women are still smaller, thinner, weaker, busty and wearing skimpy, revealing clothing.
DarckArchon Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I agree in most part with your Argument and yes we might need more diversity when it comes to female characters. However its worth mentioning the following: 
-Lanaya(Templar Assassin) is technically an assassin so theres no point in a. Clad her full in plate Armour cos it hinders her mobility and agility and b.  while indeed may not be realistic and apply all the time her Sexy look can actually work as a weapon because it can distract her opponents (especially Male ones)  and it only takes a second to ave your eyes fixed at her chest for her to jab a knife in your face. 
- You didnt take in consideration Tresden(Legion Commander) , (Phantom Assassin), Luna(moon Rider) are  actually very covered in armor so they compensate.  
- Lina and Crystal maiden are both Spell casters, meaning they don't need/want armor, so they can afford to wear less covering clothing (do i will admit its silly for CM) if they like it that way (Lina atleast is a daring and strong in character woman so its fitting for her to wear 'taunting' clothing)

Before you bring counter arguments i want to say that yes im aswell against over sexualized women in gaming especially, weather if they're personality is flat and or non existent, or yes they're sex toys ( Dragon's Crown comes to mind....)

in regards of medusa's appearance and mythology.
