I’ve been looking at a lot of comics fanart recently. Some good, some bad. But recently I’ve been looking at a lot of genderswapped art. It’s interesting to see how characters get reinterpreted when they are of the opposite sex.
After looking at all this fanart, I think I have discovered the rules which 90% of artists seem to follow when they draw male characters as female.
- Avoid muscular women. Only men should be built like bodybuilders. Women should be built like supermodels.
- The character must have big breasts. Even if they are a teenager.
- No matter how ugly the character was when they were male, they must be conventionally attractive when they become female.
- No overweight women allowed.
- Eliminate or minimize all scars, deformities and blemishes.
- Long hair is a must.
- Make the outfit skimpier. At a minimum, their top should be unbuttoned enough to show off lots of cleavage.
- If you don’t want to make their costume skimpier, make it so tight that it looks like it was painted on.
- For best results, make the outfits skimpier and impossibly tight to maximize sex appeal.
- Feminize the outfit with miniskirts, high heels and frilly underwear and/or a thong.
- Your character should have ripped clothing, but avoid blood and bruises.
- Draw them with their arch-rival. If the arch-rival is male, genderswap him, too. Make sure they’re posed to show off a maximum amount of their sexy new bodies.
- Better yet, forget the fighting and have them make-out. (Lesbians are hot!)
Remember, if any of the original personality survived the genderswap, you have done something horribly, horribly wrong!
I really hope no one thinks I’m being serious with this post.
