there is no such thing as a gamer girl just a gamer 
gamer is not gender specific any one or thing can be a gamer

While i understand where you're going if she's a girl who identifies as a gamer girl then there's no reason to dance around the issue. It's just the nature of our society to add gender tags. Whether or not they are to be used is up to the individual.

Getting touchy about every mention of femininity in this sort of context is just as bad as treating it like it's special, I'd say. Making a big production of something that *should* be considered ordinary is only going to prolong the arguments about it.

It's not usually necessary to specify when you're talking about a hobby that's stereotypically considered a boy thing anyway, but I call myself a gamer guy a fair chunk of the time, partly because I like alliteration. My point is that making a stink about the turn of phrase only gives your perceived problem with it more power.

no it does not it giving every thing a name cause racism like calling a person gay just call them a person or a dancer a dancer of a footballer a footballer and not a gay dancer or gay football and how does putting girl  on a word gives the more power that only shows that u rather call them a girl and single them out for a life choice

Words are only what you make them. If you choose to regard "gamer girl" as some sort of separation label then that's what it'll end up being. I choose to regard it as no more unordinary than referring to a street lamp as a street lamp. I could just call it a "lamp" but I use the word "street lamp" simply to denote which exact lamp I'm talking about. And that was all it ever meant to me until someone started raising a stink about how the word shouldn't be used.

Instead of making a quibble about words, argue in favor of girls being recognized as a norm in the gaming community. Then it won't matter if they get called "girl gamers" or not, because no one will MEAN anything by it.

Awesome job. Like how you mimicked the art style of each game. Borderlands and Gears of War have pretty different art styles, but you captured them pretty closely.

I think my favourite part about this is that the characters behind her aren't all female; male and female gamers can play male and female characters, their genders don't matter. Strong characters will always be strong, and a gender won't change that. I think that's beautiful.

I love it! Especially the white, outlining light.
It's maybe not what it's about, but to me it kinda  underlines the idea that no matter how small you are, in games, you can be whoever you want.

This is totally rad. The colour scheme is amazing, the warm, almost threatening reds and the bright light that shines on the player. And the expressions are just perfect. Well done!
