Alright, catching on with the last few pages. Concerning the character everybody is talking about, sure it looks young. But again, it's an anime character playing on some of the same anime tropes that were discussed at length here. Does it have issues? Maybe. Is it worth discussing? Absolutely! But I feel people were unfortunately missing the whole context under which it was posted. Honestly, I feel super bad for . She put herself out here, posted a design she was obviously super proud of, and people reacted with the same hostility as if it was a lolicon character from a cheap gacha game they've just seen pop up on social media. Or like she was one of those boner culture trolls. None of that was warranted. If I was her, I would have left here running to never come back. There are ways to discuss a design, especially if it's the design of a member posting it in good faith, without needlessly and aggressively demolishing it. On this site, and especially here in this thread, I think we demonstrated we are capable of emotional intelligence and empathy. Let's not forget it. We are better than that. I'm sorry if this post offends some people, but I had to say this.
