That is literally just a naked lady with her skin tone recolored from the neck down to pretend it’s a skin-tight outfit, with just a couple super pointy “armor” bits thrown on top as an afterthought. Calling this “bodypaint” would be kinda insulting.
While they didn’t detail in her navel or give her a cameltoe, which is so often the case with gratuitously tight “latex” outfit art, the composition DOES put a lot of emphasis on her crotch. I feel like this artwork has an uncensored nude version somewhere, that some creepy developers pass around each other.
So many question marks on the card, cause I don’t even know whether to count the ‘latex’ parts as a pretense to padding or bare skin. It definitely reads more like the latter.
Now, if you look carefully, she got a “Nipple additions” square marked because I’m counting those collar chains resting on her boobsocks. Yeah, this hair isn’t just conveniently hiding the spots where nipples would be, they obscure the kinky chains as well. Not trying to kinkshame, but what the hell even is this game’s target audience?
As we established before, just looking suspiciously erotic doesn’t yet warrant that IP is aimed at/allowed only for mature audiences. And a quick check in the app store tells me it’s indeed rated PEGI 12:
Brown Dust is a mobile game with anime characters. They are worth of bingo cards. Specially this character that has very heavy metal armour on all four limbs, but just a swimsuit for the torso.
New year, new decade, new batch of bingos! And boy we’re starting strong.
What a decently marked bingo card… without striking a single row. Classic “just a literal one-piece swimming suit and tons of overdesigned armor on the limbs” with a bonus od humongous shield that somehow is better protection than giving her full armor? 🤔
“Looks nothing like male equivalent”, cause in no media available for the game any dude character looks ever remotely like that. Here are the two male wallpapers, for instance:
Speedos paired with only greaves and gauntlets those ain’t.
The other female character wallpaper, though… Woofaroonie!
I checked out also
the comics and wow, with the way they depict women, we’ll likely get back to bingoing them a couple of times. After we’re done with that bodypaint demon above, that is.
This is as tame as female warriors in Brown Dust comic get to look. Seriously.
Thank you for the submission, @denilsonsa, it will surely provide us
nightmares bingos for the 2020.
Dragalia Lost Some Clothes, Part 2
While Icy took on a character with obviously exotified outfit, I picked one whose sexualization was prooobably not meant to relate to racial coding. Her name is Malora… and judging by her clothes, she’s cowgirl mage? ¯_(ツ)_/¯
She just looks bad.
Actually, the biggest thing to fix was her face. Dragalia Lost artstyle promotes some fucked up facial proportions, yo!
Not only was her kittyface mouth waay too small and placed on her right cheek, the highlight representing her nose was so teeny tiny and high up that all I could do was to use it as a guide to bridge of her new nose. Including human nostrils.
Costume fix was pretty unintrusive in comparison to facial changes. I just didn’t want her to look so drafty. While I appreciated reasonable shorts under the mini skirt, I decided that a longer skirt fits my plans better, as I reworked her thigh high… boots? stockings? Did she wear shoes inside shorter shoes, and greaves on top? I liked their decorative design, so I changed the ‘inner shoes’ to tights.
Reworking the top part was a bit more challenging, not because of some original idea (I literally just gave her a non-crop shirt), but because between her boobs and her spine there was some subtle @eschergirls anatomy going on and it took a couple takes to make that vest work according to laws of physics on her chest. Hopefully with success.
Not my best or most radical redesign, I still hoped it helped.
Dragalia Lost Some Clothes, Part 1
It’s quite unfortunate that Dragalia Lost ended up being another waifu collector mobile game, cause the gameplay mechanics were fun and interesting (before I got bored, as usual). We picked some of these ladies to give them clothes more appropriate for their station/role.
I personally found this image of Nefaria, who’s described as “a beautiful woman clad in foreign garb.” Now, I’m not saying that I hate this because she’s a woman of color, but it certainly doesn’t help.
My work culminated in 3 significant changes: I changed her face slightly to be less generic, I gave her an actual logical top that connects to her little tabbard, and I gave her cool pants. This was another project where I was trying to make the point that you can have cool designs that aren’t too different from the “sexy” version. It wouldn’t have been too much effort for a higher-up to request the changes I made.
I stayed with the “subtle nose highlight” style but made it a larger highlight, implying a larger nose. Give girls noses! It’s 2019!
Also, some pants.
They’re still fun, they still got a cut down the side, but now they’re waist-high pants. You don’t notice how low the shorts are on her hips in the original until you focus on it, and then it’s just ridiculous.
I also took her heels away, just for good measure. I love ruining the fun, as you all know.
