So I decided to see how much I could fix of this with a very hasty (like, two minutes) photoshop job, and… wow.
Two minutes in photoshop. TWO. F&#%ING. MINUTES, and she looks like a person who could actually exist without being in constant pain.
I just find it sad when you can change one thing just a teensy bit and it has this much of an impact on the overall look. It’s like when an airline maintenance team comes tragically close to discovering a flaw in a plane shortly before said plane explodes in midair and has a terrible crash that kills everyone on board*.
Also, I’m beginning to suspect the original was drawn by someone who knew at least a little bit about human anatomy (although the arms are absurdly skinny but then again so are mine so I’m willing to cut a *little* bit of slack there**), but then someone else came in and said “NOPE NOT SEXY ENOUGH and… yeah. I don’t know.
*I’ve been watching too much Air Crash Investigations lately.
**but not much
It’s amazing how much of a difference that makes.
