1 – To you, what is an acceptable level of anthropomorphism/humanization?
I’m an “everything goes” kinda guy. Whether or not I find it appealing is very circumstantial, largely dependent on the art style, the artist’s skill and a whole bunch of other unquantifiable factors. Always been kinda annoyed with humanizations, though. Oh sure, they can be quite nice to look at, don’t get me wrong, I just think it’s a bit creatively bankrupt. The market’s oversaturated with human characters already, you’d think people would be bored with that particular shtick already. I certainly am.
2 – Are certain traits entirely unacceptable?
Pah, no such thing as “unacceptable” in my book. And I’ll bet I’ve seen things that would make the most horrifying thing you lot can imagine seem like cute kittens and rainbows. In fact, I admire the artists that deliberately incorporate what people consider unacceptable into their works, since that takes solid 30oz brass balls.
3 – What exactly do you like about the human body that you would want to see emulated?
Well, hands. It’s just about the only redeeming quality of the human body if you ask me. Sure, they’re just as boring as the rest of the bits, but at least they’re a degree more practical. Everything else can be substituted with better stuff from other sources.
4 – Do you prefer a sexy part/whole human or a standard?
As ZeroBlue4 pointed out, this question is rather confusing. I’m guessing you’re asking whether we prefer sexy or cute? If so, I don’t see why we can’t have both. In fact, there’s not a whole lot of difference between the two if you ask me. Considering how attractive people usually get described with a wide variety of words synonymous with both “cute” and “sexy”, the divide is a false construct, born out of one nonsensical reason or another.
5 – How would you deal with sexualization of it?
How do I “deal with” sexualizations? Hah! I make sexualizations.
or at least I would, if I could get me some privacy ’round these parts
I’ve always been baffled by the folk who can’t take the heat. Yeah, sex involves lots of bodily fluids, bizarre acrobatics and emotional turmoil. I thought we came to terms with the reality of that about a century ago. Guess I gave humanity too much credit, as usual. Heh, for something so intrinsic to our very being, we sure demonize it a lot.
Then there’s the yahoos who think it ruins the innocence. Pah! Sex can be perfectly innocent, you know. Well actually, I guess you wouldn’t, considering how you ‘murrican folk have been spoon-fed various flavours of bullshit about it since childhood. There’s a reason Europe considers your culture to be rather backwards, you know.
