Daughters of the Moon by kunkka Daughters of the Moon by kunkka
A stylistic take on Dota2's Luna and Mirana.

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.

"ruined by the obnoxious and horribly drawn"
"her chest sacks and twisting her spine just degrades her power and degrades the whole artwork"
"the unattractive anatomy just cheapens the overall artwork"
"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.

lol not really. It's just feminist banter. The pose he did was more accurate than -->hideouslydisfigured.deviantart… You say you can pull that off in the mirror but bull shit, humans don't bend that way. And the whole thing about luna's ass and tits, not everyone's built the same as you.

It's not "just" feminist banter because I have very valid points. I literally got up and went to my mirror before replying and attempted both poses - mine was possible (if you look properly, you can see she isn't even bent in her spine and her entire torso is facing forward) while the Luna pose was painful on my spine and I couldn't get my ass to sit flat because my spine wasn't long enough. Also, my boobs were affected by gravity; shocking right? Women's bodies just don't look like that in real life! I'm not attacking you by stating that, I'm just saying a lot of us are sick of seeing ourselves represented in painful albeit sexualised poses. Yeah we have different body types but we all have the same amount of vertebrae and women's breasts do not look like that nor would anyone make a top that would or could sit like that on a busty woman's chest.

Luna is just wonderfull on that draw.... I love this hero.
Mirana is not as beautyfull as Luna to me on your work but she's really more beautyfull than in game, I just hate her skin on Dota... x) I think she has a pig nose, not really pretty hair cutt... Fortunatly, her mount cautching up the all.

How you incorporated the crescent moon is very clever. It's nice to see some interesting problem solving and design decisions in a piece that would otherwise be just some ladies looking pretty serious about their cats.

It's good to see new work from you in my watch! I love how you did the crescent moon around the goddess's head, and how all of them facing to the left adds to the composition. If I remember right I think you said you like Global Underground mixes. I'd recommend Nick Warren's Lima, disc 1 (disc 2 is meh).
