Original tumblr post Here

"Hi, annon. There is a difference between having a character in personality who isn’t afraid to express their sexuality, and outright drawing naughty things for the lolz. Having a “sexy” character does not make them bad, they just look bad because that’s what society has taught us. A woman’s status now a days is measured by how “ladylike” and submissive she is. That is the value of a good girl. In all honesty, I don’t think a good girl should stand by if she’s invited anyone into the purgatory of her hips, but how she carries herself in the manner of confidence. Why can’t we show a little skin once in a while? Why do we have to censor a lady’s chest but not a man’s? Why is it that when a woman has a slightly bigger bust size than average that she needs to hide them, and is considered a slut? Why are we so afraid of the sexual image that we force women to cover up things that aren’t even hurting anyone.

I draw my characters in the image of their personalities. My character Cain has confidence in her body, and really isn’t afraid to show it off, and I draw her as such. This doesn’t make her a bad person. She just appears that way because of the box society has put her in. It’s as Jessica Rabbit said, “I’m not bad, I’m just drawn that way.”

As for followers, that doesn’t really matter to me. I just draw what I like, and whoever happens to follow, follows.

On a lasting note, please don’t make assumptions about a character based on their looks, because a book is not always it’s cover, darling."

I never was a fan of boxes.

Of course it's not bad to be sexy =v=" Whether you want to show skin or not, on a real person or not, is to be within your OWN boundaries, but these boundaries shouldn't extend to other people C:

I think Cain is a really good example to pick, especially as the character has evolved and progressed so much >w< Had the pleasure of watching that happen in front of Frank :'D
Plus, Cain is a beautiful person and it's a good thing she's sharing her beauty with other people~
Ha ha, you tell them!
This brought a tear to my eye....

well it is true, it's not bad to be sexy. ; v ;b I see most of this happening in video games nowadays. I actually think showing skin is empowering.
