EGS:NP now, other stuff laterz.

Would’ve been earlier, but there was a glitch and I failed to realize it >_<

Incidentally, if people want to see more male “fan service” (for lack of a better term), just let me know that it’s wanted.

Why do you always censor girls' nipples somehow Dan? If you show boys' nipples? How come girls' are "naughty bits" but boys' aren't?

Ask society. If I put female nipples on my site, it’s suddenly an issue for a number of reasons (including monetary ones). The reason I don’t draw such things for off of the site is basically because I’m so conditioned to not show such things that it would leave me feeling uncomfortable. Well, that, and I’d rarely have cause to, anyhow.

Didn't you decided not to draw nipples on exposed chests of male characters?

That was in greyscale. In greyscale, it was really subtle in a way that made it look too much like shadows and not worth it. In color, I found it just looked weird without them.

What's Grace 's point when she said the cute voice was auditory? Was she just being nitpicky about voices not having physical appearances?

Her point was Tedd was basically suggesting relying on change blindness to not try and fix the situation, and she is boldly assuming that change blindness is entirely visual. She’s actually incorrect, however, given experiments people have done.

Elliot and Tedd kissing? Bah! That would require some sort of THIRD non-canon device that would generate a field resulting in them being wildly attracted to each other!
You know, because neither of them are impulsive enough to do that based on the attraction they totally already have for each other and avoid talking about at all costs. (Not canon) (Maybe canon) (Cannons go boom)

Elliot not being super beefy by default has the added benefit of meaning he can be transformed to such a state with far greater contrast.

Why are people complaining about Elliot's muscles/nonmuscles?

danshive:

People have preferences! Some people want Elliot to be beefy when undressed. Other people are just happy to see him undressed. All the time. Forever o_o

You've drawn Nanase with more well-defined muscles than you have Elliot.

danshive:

I’ve also drawn Elliot with more defined muscles, but super defined muscles aren’t really natural unless flexing under the right angle of light / a bunch of stuff body builders do to get that look right before a competition / photo shoot.

For example, my lower leg muscles just look bulky at rest, but when flexed and properly lit, they kinda look ridiculously toned and beefy. I would rather my arms worked that way, but at least something on me does :P

danshive:

Some have expressed that they would have liked Elliot to have more defined muscles in the latest sketchbook. I found that attempting to add too many lines didn’t get good results, but fear not! I intend to acquire this artist’s model to help with future such moments!
