Why does she wear a school uniform?
Why is her skirt so short?
>mfw women in fake armor
it's all trash, cute or not.
this pisses me off, the first pic is anime enough but no they gotta go full fucking moe and turn an actual dwarf into a loli
>details? who needs details!
Stranger of Sword City.
The art was panned in Japan and sales were bad. The developers scrambled to have the character artist from their normal moeshit dungeon crawler game releases to make new optional designs for all the characters.
>The Xbox version retailed on June 5, 2014; and the Vita version on January 22, 2015. The game has currently only been released in Japan, with NIS America planning on releasing the Vita version in the U.S. March 25, 2016.
I'm surprised there are still video game artists in Japan who can draw something different.
A good number of professional and indie artists from japan can draw more than moe, but that's not what their audience want. Some even gave up on ever drawing anything else ever again because of this.
For whatever reason Experience also released their games on 360 and PC but not on PS3 last gen. I guess they just like the platform, Microsoft wouldn't pay for games that sell less than 30k.
What JRPG this gen anyway, besides compile hearts garbage and "HD" remakes the only JRPG of note this gen is Xenoblade and it's on a console that literally has no non casual base.
also, imagine if Dragon's Crown tucked their heads into their asses and shunned away from their artistic vision because of censor-loving prudes
that is not a world I would like to live in, where creators are forced to bow down and effectively pander to shitty people who will never be satisfied with any stooping change they make
That's all fine and dandy, but simply doesn't work from a business standpoint.
The consumer reacted negatively to a product and the company has fixed what was causing their product to perform poorly.
They also kept the original artstyle in the game. The new artstyle is an option the player can select, allowing fans of the original artstyle to enjoy the game as it was meant to be, while they can reap in the moeshit sales.
And it's still censorship.
Not only is it censorship, but the new artwork is objectively dogshit. The original had some shit animation, but at least the artwork looked fucking ballin' as hell.
Look at this shit (from >>323173423)
>turning the old male dwarf into a loli
My God. Moeshit is the worst. Being a concept artist in Japan must be suffering. I'll take SJW types bitching about cleavage and shit all day over this garbage.
If that concept artist hasn't already offed himself he is a stronger man than I. Such talent being wasted on hackery.
It pains me to say it, but the only quality Dungeon Crawler RPGs nowadays are made in Japan. And then they all have moeshit art.
One of the best selling series, Etrian Odyssey, literally has a loli hentai artist as their art designer.
It doesn't matter if the original artwork is in the game when they're bowing down to a bunch of retarded otaku who only buy moeshit.
Don't give me that shit you retard, you fuckers whine and bitched when people didn't like the art style behind Dragon's Crown and claimed it was censorship. It's the exact same principles applied here except now it's in reverse.
This is the absolute best thing they could do.
Anyone enjoying the old art-style can choose to play with that one and the moefags that enjoy the new one can play with that one.
>Restaurant introduces new menu item
>New dish sells poorly
>Restaurant changes recipe of dish to replace aspect that people commonly complained about.
>But the original recipe is still available if requested by customers.
>CENSORSHIP CENSORSHIP THEY'VE CENSORED THE CHEF'S DISH
>Don't give me that shit you retard, you fuckers whine and bitched when people didn't like the art style behind Dragon's Crown
That's because the reason people didn't like it was because they were offended that the girls had big titties you fucking retard.
Read the thread. The game released with the original art, sold poorly, and now they're releasing it again with the new art as an option.
Also the dwarf and loli are different characters.
And the reason why they didn't like this art style is because they were offended that it wasn't moeshit, you fucking retard.
Nah, it's more like customers demanding you shit on their plate and refusing to leave until you do.
Why did they decide to pay for two separate art styles? Is the game itself actually good but didn't sell in Japan despite that?
Did they just tell the second guy "hey, the art isn't awful enough, better change it to the most generic moeshit you possibly can!"
>not buying a game is now censorship
is "censorship" the new "problematic"?
>they were offended that it wasn't moeshit
They weren't offended by it. Have you heard of petitions and protests and twitter campaigns talking about how this game not being moe is an offense to cultural values? No? Then shut your fucking mouth.
Nobody fucking demanded that they change the artstyle. They did it entirely on their own.
Are you retarded? There's a massive difference between SJWs demanding that Dragon's Crown have the art changed and people not buying a game because they don't like the artstyle, so the company makes an addition to get more sales of their own choice.
You little fucking cretins. Why haven't you bought my game? Are you trying to censor me?
There is literally, LITERALLY
No difference between SJWs demanding that Dragon Crown have the art change and Moefags bitching about the art style in this game.
By this argument then, the SF5 changes are not censorship as well. Since they assumed that since people might not buy the game, they decided to change bits of it to broaden their market and did it on their own.
>No difference between SJWs demanding that Dragon Crown have the art change and Moefags bitching about the art style in this game.
The difference is SJWS DEMANDED THAT THE GAME BE CHANGED TO MATCH THEIR TASTES
MOEFAGS JUST DIDN'T BUY THE FUCKING GAME
>By this argument then, the SF5 changes are not censorship as well. Since they assumed that since people might not buy the game, they decided to change bits of it to broaden their market and did it on their own.
Again, people demanded that changes be made. Unlike with this game.
You're objectively wrong.
The changes came about as a result of Moefags not only refusing to buy the game, but bitching about it as well as the publishers 'suggesting' they change the art style. If you don't think this is censorship then you're literally retarded.
>MOEFAGS JUST DIDN'T BUY THE FUCKING GAME
Not him but if that's the case why did the studio automatically assume it's because the art isn't generic and shitty enough, and not because the story, the characters, the gameplay, the dungeons, the loot etc etc are bad?
The art was panned in Japan, though they didn't demand that changes be made.
The developer and publisher are also well known for making Moeshit games, so they understandably went back to what they know and the consumer wants.
It doesn't matter if the artstyle is optional, when it comes after the original release and shits all over the clearly intended design of the game.
Just because I get a side-order of shit with my game doesn't mean I want to eat it.
I don't have a problem with that. It's not like the art makes any difference outside of just the character portraits.
It's not like those Vita dungeon crawlers where you have to rub them until they cum or fuckin' whatever.
Besides, Japanese artists getting their start doing porn is actually pretty common.
You're missing the context of the situation by a lot.
The publisher and developer are well known for making Moeshit games... including moeshit dungeon crawlers (that sell well).
They stepped outside their comfort zone in the art design of this game and their established consumer base disliked it, along with failing to attract any other consumers.
On the bright side, the original artstyle attracted attention in the West and they may possibly pursue it further for Western markets.
>It doesn't matter if the artstyle is optional
>when it comes after the original release and shits all over the clearly intended design of the game.
The original idea, design and intention is STILL THERE.
Just because NAP make a Superman comic that doesn't mean they are censoring the same Supe in Action Comic #1.
>Just because I get a side-order of shit with my game doesn't mean I want to eat it.
Which is the exact point of this optional content.
YOU CAN CHOOSE TO EAT IT OR NOT.
Is this shitting all over the clearly intended design of the game?
Honestly both versions are fine.
I prefer the more realistic style myself, but different strokes for different
>art is objectively worse, with worse rendering and blending and inferior lighting techniques, not to mention less detailed character designs
>durr hur le wats da problem loli faec XD so cute!
Would you be okay if Dragons Crown had an SJW tumblerite designs option added where there were no tits and everyone was transgander?
No matter what you say I know that if that would happen there would be a shitstorm on /v/ and you would be one of the shitposters
Fuck off with your double standards
I think Dynasty Warriors/ROttK games can get away with it because there's a surprising amount of older people who buy it just because they're huge fans of Romance of the Three Kingdoms. I remember even seeing an anime where there was some fujoshi obsessed with the story.
You do realize that the moeshit art is sales bait so they can profit from it while the original art is kept intact, right?
I bet the sequel will have two artstyles as well, with a reversible cover.
I'm a weeaboo and I think this looks like shit.
Mainly because the faggy twink artstyle for guys pisses me off. Why the fuck is Japan so emasculated.
Yes. I would be okay with it. Because I could ignore the other art option.
You're like someone complaining that an easy mode has been added to a game. Who gives a shit if they left the original difficulty intact.
I agree with your point, but your example ignores the context of when the two shows were released. Sojiro was always meant to be a generic-looking pretty boy, and that just meant something slightly different in 2010 than it did in 1997.
>This new optional artstyle is a violation of it's artistic integrity!
>But the original let the player upload any images they want and they included different artstyle portraits of characters from their previous game.
>Wh-what? Their artistic vision goes against what I want?! P-PANDERING PIECES OF SHIT!
There is still a difference between pandering to your actual audience and giving into a vocal minority who wants to change games into something only they can enjoy despite likely not even admitting to it when it happens and will still look for things to get offended over because that is the only purpose in their life which keeps them from offing themselve you understand?
Top is distinctly Asian and unique looking well drawn and well rendered dungeon fantasy art that is very rarely drawn anywhere but in Japan by some good artists
Bottom is generic shit badly drawn badly rendered moeshit art
Men are tougher to draw and animate than women.
Walt Disney had this big Hero vs. Witch fight planned for Snow White, but didn't think his animators could do it, so he cut it. Eventually the scene was made in Sleeping Beauty, a cartoon they spent 10 years on.
>On the bright side, the original artstyle attracted attention in the West and they may possibly pursue it further for Western markets.
That's a lie
Their next game will be moe shit
Haven't played it, but here's a DRPG vita guide made by people who did play it.
japan is far more okay with sexuality in media because there is no religious soccer moms to say "no".
Which always came off as weird to me, because they also seem to be far more concerned with purity of girls.
I do though, can't say that I am anywhere near being good, I am a complete amateur, but that is irrelevant
Even a person that has never touched a pencil in his life has complete authority and right to express his opinions about any art piece
pic related, practicing right now
All of Asian dungeon fantasy art is unique by default
It is unique when compared to western fantasy art and it's unique in Japland too because it's is in minority compared to torrents of moeshit in the country
Yes, we are looking at same art, yes, it's unique
Can't wait for DT2-2 to come out, I really hope they manage to iron out the couple of flaws certain classes had while adding enough new shit to make it worthwhile.
>Additional art style added as a choice
It's not censorship when you haven't altered the original in any way. It's providing more options, and that's never a bad thing.
Reminder that you can use both artstyles and the cover art for the western release is the original so you don't even need to ever look at the new art in game.
They've said several times on various games that it has less enemies than the US version or it has unlimited continues unlike the US version or it allows them to get more health than the US version, etc etc.
I don't know why you're arguing anyway. It's well known that japs are casuals and their version of the game is almost always easier in some way.
Here's a tip:
Spend some time with the nose and get the angle right. Flipping the image helps if you can't figure it out.
Also this is a personal thing and you're not finished with the piece yet, but I really don't like your use of soft round brush.
You seem to have forgotten where you are. this is 4chan, a japanese style image board, I am sorry you think the game looks worse with these changes, but that is just your shit fucking taste. new art style is CUTE.
>Have a cool aesthetic drawn by well paid artist
>No one cares
>Draw everything like anime
>All of vitagen is preordering the game
I can't blame them, at least you can have the old art if you select the option. It's not like any of you fags were asking for the game anyway.
>you can choose which one you want to use
What the fuck is the problem here, autists?
>I am fucking tired of these types of games
Then don't play them?
I'm tired of seeing brown realism simulators but I don't shitpost in other threads about that. They don't affect me at all.
>I'm tired of seeing brown realism simulators
Who are you directing this insult at?
Do you think that the person you replied to is a COD or AC player?
Do you think that majority of /v/ plays "brown and realism" games?
I just want to understand the thought process you got when you came up with this youtube comment section tier reply.
Pretty much. RotTK art has also steadily been getting better and better. As in, higher quality because it was always good.
