A opinion from an artist who likes boobs, but cringes at the term “T&A”:
I kinda despise game-franchises which sucess is mostly or even only based on slight T&A, which evolves into a huge porn-fanart-community, sustaining the rest of the fanbase like a fundament.
I like fanart. And I like porn.
But if developers choose to have heavy T&A in their games only to feed hentai-artist´s & enthusiasts , which in return enlarge the fanbase massively (- no pun intendet) , I find it…uhm…cunning, yet… sleazy in many ways.
Sex sells, I get it. But that sex sells should not influence art as it does nowerdays, especially in gaming-business imo.
Sorry for the (somehow totally off-topic >.<) rant… But I think to ask a professional artist to “re-create the whole cast to have more T&A-friendly, because it sells better” is demeaning towards the artist/artists/designers and their work.
