So I happened across this upcoming game in the flood of E3 info.

Behold the Amazon.

I like Vanillaware's stylings and I'm sure this will be a solid game. They really turned it up to 11 with some of those character proportions though.

    Hits don't feel like they have weight. But this game has a long time until release, I'll probably grab it for PS3.

    I'll be picking up this game day one, and have a "Dat Ass" face from the time that I pick it up at the counter until I put it into my respective console.
    Missing Person - There should be a middle ground. But one side refuses to acknowledge the point that being a gamer, being against misogyny, and being for journalistic professionalism and integrity are NOT mutually exclusive, because to concede that would mean they would have to concede that journalistic integrity should be attained and thus they would have to fess up.

    That's just the directors style, Even in his past games you see it a lot, just not so much on the main characters before. It's not really anything unusual.

    I think the Sorceress gave me a boner. Usually don't say this but...dem titties. :eek:

    Game looks fun. But now I'm gonna have to hook up my PS2 and finish Odin Sphere.

    Edit: Amazon's thighs jiggle. That's like a whole 'nother level right there.

    I think it's hilarious that the Elf is the only female character with somewhat realistic proportions... having said that, she's probably 12 years old. lol

    The sorceress pic is funny as hell. You have her rubbing her ass crack with her staff while a skull sucks her tit... :rofl:

    Because, look at them! Even if you look at Vanillaware's other concept art this is crazy.

    I've heard complaints about characters heads being smaller than their breasts but her's is smaller than her shoulder muscles.

    dragons_crown_sorcerer_01.jpg

    The Sorceress has managed to twist herself into a position where she's sticking her butt at the screen, yet we can still see both breasts, and her arm is in such a position that her staff is nestled in her butt crack.

    The in-game artwork looks fine but these two pieces of concept have some major compositional issues.

    dude it's just his style, who gives a shit. It's one thing to complain about the sexualization I suppose, but his style is just his style. He has never once tried to do art realistically. Just look at the side characters like Odin or that other dude, or Raijin in Muramasa. Kamitani just likes to massively exaggerate perspectives and such.

    No way is it close to Rob Liefield bad, I think for the Amazon it was a perspective shot, for the appearance of her looking very tall, but it was slightly off so I do agree her head should've been much larger.

    To Liefield's credit he draws some damn good faces, even though the head and the rest of the body in general is with terrible proportions, allll the time. I was mad, when I would see he was the artist for Deadpool Corps with each issue, then the guest spots shit over him lol.

    I looked at some of the other artwork from the links you gave. It's very exaggerated proportions in general, which is stylized. The way the artist draws perspective though, warps their proportions even more, and that's where it falls apart. I'd say it's less emphasis on composition issue, and more on perspectives and view points that screw with the proportions even more, making the composition look worse. The artist's proportions are already very stylized.

    gg-lillet-blan1.jpg
    Again, I still wouldn't go as far as to say they're almost as bad as Liefield's, cause I have a hard time even seeing perspective in Liefield's drawings, they tend to lay flat, and have inconsistent proportions from frame to frame, with no change in perspective. This guy's stuff has one aspect making another look even worse than should. I'm not defending the work, moreso just saying it's not almost as bad as Liefield lol.

    I have made it abundantly clear that I am familiar with the style. I even posted links to the concept art for previous games. The quality of the composition of these two pieces seems to be jarringly different.

    Even Raijin's head makes more sense compared to the body size than Amazon's 60871520090227_152044_2_big.jpg

    I think the game looks cool. All of Vanillaware's games look cool. I only have issue with these pieces of concept art and that's only because this issue with them seem to go beyond the umbrella of "style." If these were done by Hyung-Tae Kim http://www.creativeuncut.com/gallery-10/mc2-zephie.html it wouldn't be so surprising.

    Edit: Though I guess it is harsh to compare anyone to Liefield. I mean he's kinda in a league of his own. captainliefeld.jpg

    But yeah, I tried to at least give Liefield a tad bit of credit, my bad, I shouldn't have done that. Cause, yeah... man. Ugh.

    i couldnt stand the ps1 rayman games or the later ones. this new one looks lreally great though, might be fun too.

    Also, and this is the pedantic bastard in me, but in the title... shouldn't it be "dethroned" and "thighs"?
