It's horribly impractical for ladies to wear bikini armor while leaving their midsections exposed...or is it? Artist Stjepan Sejic reveals the "truth" behind half-naked women warriors.
Sejic says that this has been a long-simmering joke between him and his wife about fantasy illustration. Sejic draws plenty of lady armor himself, as an artist for the comics Witchblade and Artifacts, among others.
Update: Commenter Marasai points us to the sequel to this comic, featuring a trio of scantily clad heroines.
