This is kind of a random and possibly annoying question, but would you mind terribly if I used this colour scheme for a drawing of Carmelita? I really like how the colours of her fur and hair look against each other.
Aah, thank you. I haven't drawn Carmelita earlier because I used to dislike her. She's grown on me recently, when I shifted my opinion and realised that my issues with her actually had nothing to do with 'her' and everything with the development team's need to follow certain convictions and occasional poor writing. It'll be fun to draw her, because I love her hair and tail. : P
I think my main problem is that the games never really showed more than glimpses of who Carmelita is when she isn't raging and shooting. I would have liked to see more of her sense of justice and ability to do detective work. The whole 'always angry' thing is another stereotype, and I want to think that she's more than that.
Plus, I think that the end of the third game was a really poor one. Sly's idea of how to start a relationship was really REALLY bad, but Carmelita wasn't acting any better either. I see a huge moral problem in lying to an amnesiac person about his identity just because you want to date him. Not a shining moment for either of those two. You can't base a healthy relationship on lies. But I don't really blame them, I blame the writing.
