What the **** are you talking about, seriously. I have no idea. 'Accurate' to what? It's a T&A pose, it's not in any way a fencing or fighting pose, and prior red posts were about the fencing accuracy of Fiora's model animations, not about her splash art.
Words fail me.
OF ****ING COURSE a swimsuit is inappropriate in many settings.
Again...FFS. Even if we take this vaguely expressed idea of vampirism and predation as gospel (when in fact it's garbage lore), when you look at Vlad as an example of the male vampire archetype, you cannot seriously argue that Eve is a fair treatment of the female vampire archetype.
Your viewpoint is far from reasonable or objective. It is in some ways ignorant, in other ways pure denial, in all ways intensely frustrating because refuting you point by point over and over and OVER again is simply tiresome.
As I said... artist failed to properly depict her waist.
In regards to Fiora.. claiming it is demoing her **** is just crude, and while it is demoing her ass the only real difference from a fencing pose would be her leg positioning. Nothing wrong with minor *** appeal (and that is certainly minor.. yet you claim it to be excruciatingly over the top).
I am not saying swimsuits are appropriate in other scenarios... but to claim that a given style of attire is acceptable in a singular instance and no other is ridiculous. I mean Akali is a ninja with her own culture and traditions and who are we to claim that a given attire is explicit or too extreme. You should be more open about the topic. It doesn't even disgrace women. Such attire does exist in given environments/cultures/classes and is not considered inappropriate. I won't claim it to be the norm though... that's for sure.
Vlad is not a vampire he is a hemomancer... and the point of the theme is lore >.>
