Boku H’s fleshy female lead is to be transformed into a huggable pillow – thereby combining terrible artwork, with equally awful subject matter, for an overall dreadful product remembered only in shame.
It’s too late for the recipe, this is disaster already – there’s plenty of problems, all the way down to her basic sketch. Her outline disregards weight, or thickness, remaining a solid width all across her form consistently – and this is simply plain ridiculous. Line weight is an opportunity to enhance or develop a sense of depth – and the artist here did not take it. Nonetheless, one could excuse such if it were only one of few meager issues – yet this dakimakura has a plethora of them, and they’re all colossal in significance.
Secondly, the lines move awkwardly and very erratically in the sense that they’re hilariously off from reality. They don’t even have a synthetic appearance so much as they nearly portray a species other than human. Look at the arms for the clearest instance of atrocity – stiffness seems to override all the shapes to the point that they’re incoherent.
Yet don’t be mistaken and think that such is as awful as it can get – it certainly does indeed still drop another tier. The shadows appear spilled onto her figure without any serious consideration of a light source’s actual output. The intensity does not vary amongst the assorted spots of value as it should – and the transitioning is frankly inconsistent, or more precisely, absent. With the elements being implemented to a coin flip of effort, the outcome certainly corresponds with the input.
One would have thought a series which bases itself around breasts would at least excel in displaying them – though evidently, there’s no exception to what is slopped together for sake of profit.
