jesus christ i leave and i come back to him citing Queens Blade as a base for anime stylization if i didn't know any better i'd call him a troll
Well I don't want to follow this argument forever. I'm going to take a break, keep me abreast of any developments.
i cant believe this argument has been going on for the last four pages. i can't believe how late you are to the argument since kotaku made a huge stink about it a month or more ago. the art style is consistent with the world and canonical universe created around it. these proportions are not exclusive to the female characters. you're all comparing it to other art styles while other art styles have absolutely nothing to do with this artist at all. the people in this thread shouting "parody" are also wrong, because it's not a parody of anything. DID YOU KNOW?: ridiculous proportions for the bodies of different classes in the game help you differentiate among all of the classes and characters represented on the screen, to reduce any visual confusion? did you know that that makes the art style not only [b]already okay because it is consistent but also DOUBLE OKAY?[/b] isn't that great
It's a game you miserable fucks, if you don't like it , don't buy it. Stop whining and bitching over it already.
[QUOTE=MegaChalupa;41656945]What's an ideal for one person isn't necessarily going to be the ideal for the next. Dragon's Crown offers a pretty big variety for both sexes with both the male and female characters having traits which are commonly found attractive. [img_thumb]http://gamerhorizon.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Dragons-Crown-Round-Table.jpg[/img_thumb] Just look at the full roster, each character fits into a certain archetype and can easily be said to be someone's ideal, male or female. IE Sorceress for people who like exaggerated womanly features, Amazoness for people who like, well, Amazons, Archer for people who like more modest depictions of females. Then both Knight and Wizard both have elements of designs which are pretty popular with females. Knight has the typical "bishounen" look found in a lot of Japanese media, as does the Wizard which has more than a passing visual resemblance to characters like Sephiroth who are immensely popular with the female fanbase. Then you have Dwarf who is your typical muscle head which is another popular archetype. Each character in the game has it's own appeal and it's distributed pretty evenly across the board, as each character has its own appeal in both the male and female fanbases.[/QUOTE] For a game, it looks like a fun roster. And as you said, the art director obviously wanted to reach out to the fanbases. And I dare say, he did a good job.
this thread is so fucking weird
[QUOTE=Wizards Court;41657465]the witch of queen's blade(one of the main villains) is even worse for instance. [IMG]http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120330070917/queensblade/images/1/15/Welveria.jpg[/IMG] [/QUOTE] Really? You're using Queen's Blade as an example? A show that's meant to basically border on being hentai? I don't think you know what you're talking about.
Jesus fuckin christ why do I even come to this stupid subforum anymore Literally almost every 2nd thread I click on has some overly pedantic crybaby whinging about some shit that he thinks is misogynist. Come into this thread thinking "its safe, its just about bideo" and get greeted with some retard making a big song and dance about some characters who are so ridiculously and obviously out of proportion that no one but a really select niche would actually find these characters sexual, at all. You'd have a better case for arguing a fucking pile of dog shit as a male power fantasy ffs. Fuck me.
This thread is enough for me to label the game as Dragon's Downs :(
Did I just really read 5 pages of bitching about tits?

[QUOTE=Irockz;41659922]Remember when you defended transphobes Yeah there are terrible people on this forum aside from these "pedantic crybabies"[/QUOTE] I never defended transphobes I defended a select few people who simply didnt share the same understanding as the rest of the posters. Shit I even made a point of pointing out the posters who were clearly transphobic.
[QUOTE=ScratchNsniff;41658612]It's a game you miserable fucks, if you don't like it , don't buy it. Stop whining and bitching over it already.[/QUOTE] Too bad that many people are incapable understanding this, and the simple fact that it's not the artists job to create what you find acceptable.
[QUOTE=Zeke129;41656180]so the artist responded by making a gay joke how classy I didn't care before because everyone in the game was half naked but now I think the artist is a complete dipshit[/QUOTE] why is this being rated dumb [editline]31st July 2013[/editline] i mean you could argue all day about whether having characters with boobs bigger than their heads is misogynist (personally I am past caring; these characters are more caricatures than anything else) but that artist was a fucking dipshit

[QUOTE=Primigenes;41656571]Uh no It is literally because he didn't say shit about the half naked Dwarf. I don't know where you got that gay stereotype shit from You honestly sound like you're just making shit up[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=Mr. Scorpio;41656511]It's not "lol you gay", it's "so the half naked dwarf is fine but the half naked amazon isn't? then have some half naked dorfs"[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=CAS303;41661296]I'm guessing because he completely missed these posts from page 1?[/QUOTE] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/vG5cgWu.png[/IMG] it's pretty obvious what he meant i wish people would stop dancing around the fact it was obviously a stupid gay joke
see guys what you fail to realize is that it's a joke and that developers are not robots, they are capable of cracking said jokes personally i found it hilarious, people threw a fight over the original then they posted an image to retort, it was funny

[QUOTE=Wizards Court;41657120]that isn't the average women in a game and you know it. [/QUOTE] In other words, you're willing to look at the bad examples only, in a biased opinion. Good job!

[QUOTE=MisterMooth;41661470]maybe you should stop defending stupid, immature, homophobic jokes[/QUOTE] What that man said wasn't homophobic, it wasn't even offensive. The only reason this thread turned into a complete shitfest was because you guys decided to waddle in and say something (well, actually multiple things) that sparked a COMPLETELY irrelevant argument lasting for PAGES. I can ctrl+c my last sentence and paste it in almost any SH thread and it would be just as true, too.
[QUOTE=MisterMooth;41661323][IMG]http://i.imgur.com/vG5cgWu.png[/IMG] it's pretty obvious what he meant i wish people would stop dancing around the fact it was obviously a stupid gay joke[/QUOTE] So you say "it's obvious" suddenly makes your interpretation "lol u gay" as absolute fact? You seem to be grasping at straws here. Even if that was the case, there are gay people I know who throw some pretty damn raunchy jokes back and forth that are objectively worse and they still have a big laugh and don't get all upset about it. I take it according to you, they should not be allowed to find said things funny? Who made you the authority on who or what is "immature" and not?
