so I’ve been thinking a lot lately about armor for people with curves and big breasts, and a trend I’ve noticed among “anti-boobplate” circles where the positive examples highlighted tend to work best for people with flat or smaller chests. It’s definitely a conversation we should be having, since most boobplate looks ridiculous, and as it’s been pointed out by many, many people all mostly quoting the same article, could kill you if you fell forward. However, I worry sometimes that people take these arguments to their logical extremes, and lump breasts and curves in with the problem, or make boring outfits in the name of “practicality.”
So I wanted to draw some armor that is at least believable, if not practical, and works with a curvy figure without sexualizing it. Would this actually work in real life as real armor? Probably not? But I’m not sure that’s the most important thing to focus on, unless you’re making a gritty, realistic, historically-accurate work. For fantasy? COOLNESS is what counts. I’m all for seeing non-sexualized, diverse ladytypes with functional armor, as long as the coolness factor doesn’t get lost!
So I tried to find the picture of it, but there is a game called Conkers Bad Fur Day, This sunflower, you have to get these bees to tickle her, and then you have to jump on her tits and bounce on her boobs to grab something. Ouch.
Sunflowers with balloon boobs…. eeeeughhhhh.
so yeah this is from the game skullgirls, and…
i think you should get your spine checked out cerebella
Oh my god. She’s a table. She’s literally a table.
As seen in Blizzard Entertainment’s WoW TCG expansion, Drums of War. I suppose there might be some extra lift from the tentacle? But holy shit that spine.
Shoutout to @applecidermage for turning this up!
Groped by a vine is a new one for me…
I’ll be honest, I can’t really distinguish any body parts here at all…
That last picture you posted reminded me of this one from Galaxy Online 2. I normally don’t pay attention to these type of ads because most of them feature female characters with huge boobs. However, this one called my attention because it was the first one I saw with a practically naked chick.
This was like two years ago, now is normal :s
Unless that “armor” is physically welded to her body, that ain’t gonna cut it.
Note the bendy spine and what I like to call the “squish pose”- arms tucked forward and in to maximize cleavage.
So, I found this while looking up images for Saki. Something tells me that boobs don’t act like this…
Boobs- independent living and breathing organisms that latch onto your chest. Like squishy barnacles.
Just noticed this while watching Black Lagoon (episode 13) and immediately thought of this blog. Unless she’s trying to smuggle cantaloupes into that bar, something tells me that boobs really don’t work that way…
Is that what I look like leaning back? I didn’t realize
