Daughters of the Moon by kunkka Daughters of the Moon by kunkka
A stylistic take on Dota2's Luna and Mirana.
Both ladies are warriors of the moon goddess, Selemene.

Something different from my usual style, I had lotsa fun experimenting.
Also thanks to :iconartgerm: for his pointers towards this piece.

This piece is ruined by the obnoxious and horribly drawn "breasts" on luna. I'm constantly amazed at how much people feel the need to sexualise the women they draw when it's totally unnecessary - luna is already gorgeous and giving her chest sacks and twisting her spine just degrades her power and degrades the whole artwork. It could be so beautiful but the unattractive anatomy just cheapens the overall artwork. Sorry for the rant, this is just my personal opinion.

Oh wow. Just... Wow.

That was almost enough to make me want to go find someone who fails to meet modern expectations of beauty, then shame, mock, degrade, and verbally grind them into proverbial dust, then finish the whole thing off with "don't worry, that's just my personal opinion" and mail a recording of it to you, just to properly illustrate your own hypocrisy.

But, for some strange reason, I'm doubtful even that would be enough for you to realize it.
Maybe it was the nearly identically posed submission of yours which twists the spine even further and strips her of all clothing, or the entirely necessary sexualization of the children's cartoon character you drew here.

Take your hypocritical social justice warrior bullshit elsewhere, mate.
Not only is it not needed here, but it would probably be best reserved for -oh, I don't know- the person who actually designed the character.

The poses are not identical. I went to the mirror and was able to pull of my character's pose. Luna's pose is anatomically incorrect in many ways, from the structure of her breasts which do not appear to be attached to her chest, to her bottom which is sitting far lower than is possible - she would need a few extra vertebra for her ass to be down that low. Her thigh would also need to be reduced in length by about a third in order to be a believable length. Just try to imagine her standing with her body the way it is. I attempted Luna's pose in front of my mirror and immediately felt pain while recognizing that I wasn't able to get my breasts/chest area facing as upward and my ass as far back. I also noticed how much shorter my thigh was, even though I'm not a short person. My character's spine is not as twisted. HOWEVER I do recognize that my drawing, which is almost 3 years old is a product of me being influenced by the pervasive art trope of constantly portraying women in a sexualised manner. I drew it BEFORE I was fully aware however I did try to give her a full body with space for organs. And I don't see your problem with my Shego artwork, it's imitated from a screenshot of the actual show and even though it's exaggerated (it's CARTOONY) it's not twisting her spine so much that it looks broken. If you see it as hypersexualised then you are grasping at straws and forgetting about truly problematic hypersexualization that people are exposed to and affected by. And no, it's the critique I posted is for the artist who drew the character in this way. The original design of Luna is fine.

This one is very good. I like the background of Selemene on a moon, I like the way they fly.. This picture give so much moon powers. Especially the Selemene's eyes.. Really wonderful!
