A loverly fuck-ton of horse-riding references.
So there are a few ways people ride horses. The first way is the “proper way”; the stuff they teach you in riding class where you’re supposed to sit up straight so your spine telescopes into your anus when the horse gets jumpy (*pulls reins on sarcasm* Whoaaa, whoaaa boy!). It would be wise to research this a bit if your character is a riding student or something of the sort. There’s a practicality behind it, for the structure of your riding position aids in controlling the horse. Then there’s the racing pose where you’re ass isn’t touching the horse at all (you rely on stirrups; with this one, you’re pretty much required to have a saddle to make this work… I could conceive some ways one could do without, but I’m not that motivated at the moment). This is something you also ought to read up on. Then there’s the type where no “official” rules were learned, so the person adopted a position that seemed to work for their needs (cue for “get creative, home-slice”). And, just as a side note, if you’re not male and you’re drawing a male riding a horse… Please. Please. Please. Please. Please. For the love of all that is good in this world… don’t forget we have balls, and that those balls on the spine of a horse can hurt like a motherfucker (which is why so many of us keep our asses off the seat when starting out). If the horse is jumping around, and we ourselves are well-hung, it’s not gonna be pretty. We have a little more consideration for our groin, so in most cases, we’ll be elevated from the seat a bit (unless your character is a pro and has acclimatized to the abuse and/or learned how to sit properly). In fact, we usually deal with this problem by pushing our hips forward when the horse’s hooves touch the ground; this way our buns of steal can take the impact and not our hopes and dreams (so it kinda looks like we’re grinding on the seat as the horse is going… but trust me, it’s for a good cause).

Kathryn Bigelow, director of The Hurt Locker, is the only woman EVER to win a Best Director Oscar. Only 4 women have ever been nominated. Women made up only 6% of Directors for the top movies of 2013. There were NO female nominees for directing, cinematography, film editing, writing (original screenplay), or music (original score) during last year’s Academy Awards.

on a textual level, a female character can dress however she wants and shouldn’t be slut-shamed and hated for what she prefers to wear.
on a metatextual level, she might still have been designed with an intention to provide fanservice.
this means that criticising a design, as opposed to a character, is neither misogyny nor slut-shaming. being displeased about the way a character has been designed is not synonymous with hating her.
have i made myself clear?
All right, here’s the next installment of generator-related art *jazz hands* As an elf, she can use magic, but prefers hand-to-hand combat; hence, her conjuring a sword. She also likes dressing fancy… good thing a quick spell will clean up her clothes after the fight!
