Sword Art Online’s girl-focused spin-off begins in Dengeki Bunko’s 32nd volume, issue of July 2013 – the so-called “more deban” brings ample bishoujo action, but not a hint of loli satisfaction whatsoever.
There is a bit of Silica-chan in the first chapter of this continued conquest of awful – but casting aside the manga, because it’s foreseeably horrid even if strictly centered on the females, the estrogen-exclusive spin on Sword Art Online includes a complementary bikini art poster to celebrate the new, wonderful beginning without a loser main character. This included item is easily the best artwork output by Sword Art Online ever, which doesn’t say much admittedly – but make no mistake, this is a fine artwork.
First of all, just ignore the busty girl with the deformed face, and lacking fashion sense, seen in the background. With that, one is left with none other than Sandwich-kun – and surprisingly enough, the tempting nectar in this illustration is, indeed, Sandwich-kun.
While her ass(ets) has been once filled with two-years worth of semen according to the official novel series, and the anime has shown her further violated by tentacles, and touched by strange men, this artwork shows why man and monster alike go to such great lengths to dispense their ranch dressing inside of Sandwich-kun. Even with virginity long lost, her ass(ets) is still looking appetizing – particularly so in this art piece.
Although that creature behind her wasn’t as fortunate, somehow, the artist gained a moment of prodigy skill when he sketched Sandwich-kun as per this artwork. Her form is illustrated to incredible precision, most notable around the abdomen region as very slight but substantial variations in line direction exist to capture natural human figure. The excellent use of line is also prominent alongside the waist of course, as well right below the neck and following along the bust.
Her oppai aren’t just some artificial balloon-like spheres – an aspect exemplary of how the drawing was given deep contemplation and regard to proper proportion and shape in the process of creation.
All over, the element of line has been utilized to top caliber throughout this artwork. And capitalizing on that, the artist made ideal selection of skin tone and appropriate shades for darker places. The mid-range skin tone can be seen smoothly applied across her visage and other areas of the body, with farther edges, or covered spots, receiving a darker overlay. Lighting value was also explicitly employed to define very critical details of her physique, like the spine, which one can notice is composed of a boundary of darkness.
In addition to bringing out key features, this superb use of value also established an always-essential sense of depth.
This sandwich has a lot of delicious meat on it – which both entices, and also once again goes to show why dear Sandwich-kun is so popular with anything that has a penis. After indulging in this most lavishing artwork, a greater respect for Sandwich-kun can arise as one comes to realize her beauty. She’s a siren who can cater to the lusts of both man and beast, and still somehow sustain a mystical charm (in the lower body and bust if wishing to be specific).
But opinions of her person all aside, and pretending we know not of the many ships which have already docked at her shores, this artwork is the very definition of Asuna’s appearance – an illustration illustrating her unique overdose of seductive facets that leaves all living entities in the distance aroused.
