In Iran, just flashing an ankle at a man can drive him to madness.

It's the only way to get fanboys to buy anything with a female character, and make a publisher money.

Magic armor doesn't have to cover anything.

Bracers of Defense for example can be used completely naked.

When I was in high school this girl I knew showed me her uterus.  She had surgery to remove a cyst and they took pictures.

What are you talking about? It's not like every female character has to walk around almost naked just to make a show popular. Just look at the success of MLP.

Oh, that's not a costume.

I saw that image and was thinking "wow, that looks like that Sunstone guy's art".  Then I see that, sure enough, it's that Sunstone guy.

By the way may I take this moment to point out that Mr. Sejic has a second Deviant Art account under the name shiniez that may appeal to those of you who like a little pain with their pleasure?  It is the home to a surprisingly insightful comic about BDSM relationships which benefits from being about smoking hot lesbians with a latex fetish.

Despite the eye-candy, it actually does a really good job of conveying the truth about how functioning BDSM relationships work.

Do you want to tell his ladies that their armor isn't appropriate?

I've had an epiphany. My blatant sexism has finally come and stared me in the face. I feel shame and remorse that can only be quelled by making things right.

Ladies, I completely agree that the chainmail bikini is sexist. No man ever wears it. Women should wear armor every bit as concealing and protective as men. To start with I propose some farkettes post pictures wearing some. Below are a few suggestions of male armor that I would want to see women in.

CSB Time:

I met Boris and his wife (the equally talented Julie Bell) at a Christmas party last year, and had a blast talking to them.  I found out what drove Boris into doing fantasy art in the first place.  He was an ad illustrator who got really sick of drawing refrigerators and cars for ads, and began doing fantasy art as a way to pursue a more creative path.  Everyone thought he was nuts when he left his job to draw bodybuilders in fantasy settings, since there wasn't much call for this sort of thing in Peru.  My teenage dreams would have been very different if he had kept drawing cars.

I'm hoping that I have enough money lying around one day to commission a painting of myself from them, just my face on some Conan-type body :)

According to the Top Cow website, yes he does.

I'm not normally one to follow specific artists, but after getting into Sunstone I'm noticing Sejic's work everywhere.

Funnily enough, I got acquainted with his art thru his shiniez account.

Love his wonder woman pics on his regular acct. Specially when she's complaining about getting photoshopped.

And your opinion on an artist like julie bell?
 
2014-02-14 09:12:11 PM
I like dudes.  I mean, I really like dudes, know what I'm sayin'?  Big musclely ripped He-Man dudes?  Hell no.  Who the fark thinks that's attractive?  Give me just enough definition to make out some arm, back, and shoulder shape and that's a good time. Show me strength without telling me how many hours you spend at the gym every day.

Old comic is old, and Sejic's rendition of Wonder Woman is one of the hottest around.
