The last page started off a little negative, and we had a bit of difficulty finding a good, new topic to work off of.
This time, let’s work a bit off the Equestria Girls idea, but mix it a bit with an underdeveloped topic from a little while back.
1 – To you, what is an acceptable level of anthropomorphism/humanization?
2 – Are certain traits entirely unacceptable?
3 – What exactly do you like about the human body that you would want to see emulated?
4 – Do you prefer a sexy part/whole human or a standard?
5 – How would you deal with sexualization of it?
These are, of course, opinions. Let’s not attack others over them unless they’re knowingly and intentionally being jackasses.
Okay…. Let’s roll with that.
Fine with most levels, provided it looks GOOD. Heck, even if something falls into the uncanny valley I usually just laugh. But if it looks bad it looks bad. The level of humanization, Anthopomorphic-ness or even the reverse of those two doesn’t factor into that, but whether one understands fundamental principles of “What looks good” does. Which is why I’m fine with other artists doing the “Almost Human” thing with the ponies and leaving the skin as the pony colors, but rage over the fact that the concept vectors for Equestria Girls look off.
None, again, it doesn’t worry me… Unless someone has no understanding of biology or it just looks bad. Equestria Girls needs to fix the cheekbone problem for example, real cheekbones barely stick out at all, and if anything should be considered part of the eye details, considering when I feel it, it grows off the eye socket bone and if anything goes forward, not outward.
What Human parts I like
Well… I suppose it depends, though usually I think the Bipedal thing and the hand thing is good. Though Any number of features are interesting if done well. Even Quadrupedal but with a human like torso is good if they work it well. Really, I guess I like every feature of both humans and ponies so flexibility is good. I don’t see much of a point to human feet though.
I have no idea what four is asking…
Hmm… Not sure if asking if it’s bad… or how I would do it,,,
But anyways, I don’t mind sexualisation, provided it’s tasteful and not some gross out affair with fluids everywhere. Also… Provided it actually looks good.
Though for my own preferences, I tend to go with the ponies in Underwear regardless of level of humanization. The whole spectrum of underwear is also acceptable, but the often overlooked “Boyshorts” which are pretty much boxer-briefs for females except shorter, those are nice. And Sock or Stockings are nice, but the length should be adjusted to account for how much the underwear look like they cover; sort of an inversely proportionate thing.
Too much detail?
