A big part of the problem is that the vast majority of these artists clearly aren't drawing from life when making these design choices, and often refuse to do so. Women can have squarer jaws, broader than average shoulders, and be muscular, but that doesn't mean that those features are going to look exactly how they'd look on a man. There's a ton of subtlety and nuance to how features translate on both sexes while still being identifiable as male or female, and humans are absolute masters at instinctively picking up on those differences with very few real life cases where those sensors are 100% fooled, and capturing those kinds of nuances in art is definitely a skill.That being said, it is a double standard that I have to agree is wrong. I saw so many people complaining about how men don't "understand women with square jaws" or shit like that and that's really not the case. Yeah, you don't need doubles d's and wide hips to be considered a women, but these people seem to believe that if every trained woman doesn't look like She-Hulk it's sexist. Like, no. Even the most trained women still look like women. The Samus I saw earlier didn't even look like Samus. Where's her blond hair? Her shoes? Hell, they even reduced her breast size in the pic too, making her look even more manly. When I first saw it, I thought it was some genderbent Samus, which could work.
What I'm trying to say is that I'm tired of these people clearly drawing men as women and trying to play it as progressive. It's just another form of conservatism. Reduce the breast size because big breasts are somehow sexist, but ignore how other girls with big breasts don't appreciate these guys acting like having huge boobs is a bad thing. These people give women manly frames despite the fact that even the most well-trained women body builders still keep their figure.
that's, exactly my point ...Those are hatch-marks indicating the top of the cheek and the bottom of the lower eyelid. You can even see how they bend as she opens her mouth. They're far more than just "random lines", they give information about expression that are important when you want to convey emotion in subtle complex ways that less detailed kawaii desu animu can't do. That is to say, they look good because they mean something.
I hate to spend Valentine's Day with her jeez Love is technically a core part of what makes us human though not to be rude but there might be something wrong with you if you can't feel love a basic human emotion I mean if animal's can do it
Well, you might count the pointless fanservice being thrown into the Archie Sonic comics when it reached the anime-esque era in the late 90's and early to mid 2000's.
