Deviant Art member *ghostfire created a truly inspired all-girl version of the Team Fortress 2 characters that has to be seen to be appreciated. If you guys at Valve are reading (and we know you do) this is a pretty damn good idea, don’t you think Gabe?

I heard Valve was going to release something similar when the spy update included the ability to disguise as a dispenser...

They're awesome drawings, for sure, but the appeal of the TF2 character design is in the easily identifiable silhouettes of the characters. Even if all you saw was a shadow, you'd be able to identify each class in a millisecond. All of these characters look the same.

Kick-ass!

All we need now is to get a few hot models to put it into real life. :D

The whole "I want female characters in TF2" thing has been overdebated, it will never work. Lunch time cant explain.

My fiance would love this. So would all non-penis playing players.

Evolve with the times or continue to wine as a company "gosh why can't we get girls to play... i just dont understand why they dont want to be a 300 pound heavy"... come on... use your brains.

valve has a history of listening to their fans... it would be great!

it would be even neater if it was tied to the sex of your account... unless your a gender bender lol

I'd rather Valve takes the time to do more achievement/unlock packs for other classes, rather than waste time on this. It serves no purpose, not to mention you have to make the models fit the same hit boxes (or the game would play oddly for people using the other model). This would make the female models shaped very similarly to the current models, just with some longer hair and small breasts. Also, Valve spent a lot of time trying to give each class a specific silhouette so that just the shape was enough to identify the class. The illustrated models all are too similar, and if new models would be made, they would break some of the simplicity of TF2, or would also have to fit the same silhouette.

i've always thought it would be a great idea if you could choose a gender the same time you were choosing a class.

hmm... so having female gamers play female characters serves no purpose?

so your hands haven't left yourself yet have they? or do you like the hunky dudes so much you can't expand your mind for female players?

some of these reasons are a joke. a 3d editor could probably pump these models out one per week or day even.

3d process:
1. stretch
2. skinny
3. add boobs
4. lengthen hair
5. add pms lvl 10 weapon

Yes but what a lovely silhouettes they would be :)

I honestly wouldn't mind seeing this in game...

I think you could have the equipment make the characters bulk up a bit to give the ladies their own unique silhouettes...

Although the artist did a fantastic job and I would love to see this in TF2, I can't see it working. In order to have hitboxes work correctly, all players would have to be either female or male - no mixture. Should something like that be implemented, do you honestly see anyone playing in anything other than female character servers? ;)

Even the heavy is super thin :p Female characters are great, but don't let 14 year old boys do them...

This one is much superior. It's a bit rough, but the characters retain their original style, are somewhat unique, and don't look like like they were drawn by some creepy 4-chan neck beard who watches too much porn.


Agreed. The original one linked for the discussion is far too stereotypical; at the VERY least, the HW "girl" should be, ya know, Heavy. Cause it's, ya know, in her name...

Not all the man characters are "hot" so why should all the woman characters be "hot"? It would be cool if they implemented female versions of the characters but it wouldnt be cool if they were all stereotypically hot Jane Doe's. The girls should be just as weird looking as the guys.

I think you're missing the point of the internet.

If it's a question of the hit boxes of one set of models being unfair when compared to other set of models...just make it a server option to either use all male models or all female models. Just my opinion :)
