VIVA PINATA WHOA by VCR-WOLFE VIVA PINATA WHOA by VCR-WOLFE
I have dumb friends and they should feel bad. Namely my kawaii bro Deerknight from FA for somehow coercing me into making a piñata character, ew!!

SO I DID MAKE ONE. His name's Irvin! He's a kawaii birdy whose mouth is on his belly. His innards are gross sticky wet gummy worms so if you touch them it'll be gross. Ew. Irvin's a bit shy and awkward but he's friendly if you can get past the scared outer shell into the gooey warmhearted center.

Love this guys design. it's so unique, colourful and unique. Really dig your choice of colours and his paw-print tail. I shouldn't worry about the comments on the hips; it totally makes sense for his little stomach-mouth. It also balances out with his thicker calves and fore-arms. If animation taught me anything, is that good character art is about a unique silhouette, not being identifiable by gender.

I know two men with klinefelter, my ex boyfriend and my stepfather who rejected gender surgery to stay male despite his condition

Believe me, those are some wide hips

The only thing not wide enough are maybe your horizons. Calling someone a bad artist over a body type on a fictional creature is pretty damn mind-boggling

Oh, so now that you know they are male, they are not wide enough all of a sudden? Yet before you were so sure they are ftm (that assumes they were wide enough to pass as a former female). Controversy much?

okay. I'm done.
have a nice day.

when a ftm takes testosterone his hips will shrink but slowly, so I assumed they were ftm taking that and their hips slowly slimming down.
either way, men don't NATURALLY have wide hips unless something is wrong.

no..
males have small hips.
why?
cause they don't hold babies.
he can be androgynous, but that doesn't involve changing his own anatomy to a female. I didn't even know he was a boy till I read the description.
The only reason girls have wide hips is so they can hold babies.

you need to learn how to critique, because you're honestly just being rude telling someone they look like a "bad artist" for stylization.
like i get that you want to be helpful, and critique is fine, but your attitude is pretty lame to be honest.

this critter here is not even human, hes just a character design

Considering that his mouth is on his stomach, there could be other reasons for his hips being so wide. While this is not my design and I don't know how Viva Pinata works, I wouldn't think a pregnancy-capable version, assuming there even would BE one, would even be able to hold a baby there, because... the mouth is there. And his insides are gummy worms.

He's not human. He does not need to conform to conventionally standard human anatomy, regardless of what you think he should look like. Please understand this. R-Wolfe's a great artist, I suggest looking at the rest of their gallery because you clearly haven't seen their actual human artwork.

Rad-Pax Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
well clearly this is enough proof they fail to understand anatomy and blame it on their "style".
You're just picking more things to blame and its quite silly. I don't care how inhuman it is. To me it looks like another ~*kawaii desu shota boy*~ OC that the people just blame their bad art on stupid shit.

I'm speaking as someone who likes to think a bit outside the box when it comes to non-human critters. He is a birdlike piñata, full of gummy worms, with a mouth on his stomach, and you're suggesting he needs to have "proper human anatomy" or else they're a "bad artist". That doesn't make sense. He's not supposed to have a human body, he's a frickin' cartoon piñata, with a mouth on his stomach. It would be another thing entirely if he was actually meant to be human.

But okay fine don't listen to what I actually said, whatever. All that aside, as a sometimes-male-identifying genderqueer who LIKES the idea of being a pear-shaped boy and is generally happy with their wide hips, I don't understand why this is an issue? Nobody said the character was sexually male, that's just his gender. It could mean anything.

it's not a human, it's a pinata. or a bird.
birds start out small at the top and taper out into large hinds, generally.
you're honestly just being a dick at this point like you said, tho.

Just as there's a difference between holding a strong argument, and just being a dick. 

When you're wrong, accept it and move on. We can't all always be right, Pax. You've just made yourself look like a rude idiot.


You you need to chiiiiiill and learn some manners, dude. It's just a style and frankly nobody else but you in the world gives a shit. It's cute, it's better than anything I could do, and it's. A cartoon. Piñata.

I'm just going to chime in this. I don't really see the need to fuss over such a silly thing like a nonhuman character having wide hips??? There are plenty of males irl who happen to have wide hips, whether they're chubby or whatever. However, this character isn't even human, so it isn't going to stick to human anatomy.

OOPS, funny what you find in a 10 second google search

hey guess what some times dudes have huge hips and large fat deposits on their hips, it's not even uncommon, it happens, it's not even remotely anatomically incorrect to give men big hips. Like how few men do you know to SERIOUSLY thing giving a dude hips means you don't know anatomy lmfao

Also a funny thing about knowing anatomy and proportions is knowing how to push it, which has been done here. Or are you going to now say that all cartoons/non life drawings are products of artists who don't know anatomy.

Cripes if you're gonna fight so tooth and nail for something you should at least pick something accurate, or something you have even minor knowledge regarding you know?

it's not a species, irvin's just a pinata

theres lots of pinata characters around, several of my bros have some

i dont own pinatas but irvin is my personal pinata character so if you were to make a pinata that looks too much like a rehash of him(ie. a bird with a belly mouth and so forth) id be a bit ticked but honestly i dont fucking care if you make a pinata character after seeing a buncha other people make them

pinatas are cool

I chose to gave him such wide hips and whatnot to accommodate the mouth on the belly, which is his only functioning mouth and leads directly to uh. The innards since he doesn't exactly have organs.
