Opinion: Dragon's Crown Artwork Is Ridiculous, But Still Art

Metal Arcade: Nate Gray writes:

George Kamitani's over-sexualized Dragon's Crown artwork has caused quite a fuss lately, and sparked heated arguments on public forums. But like it or not, we don't get to decide what someone else feels is 'art'.

While there’s always been talk of sexuality in gaming, the over-zealous designs of one George Kamitani for the upcoming Vanillaware game Dragon’s Crown has come with a surprising amount of vehemence. The debate over the designs of female characters in the world of nerdlings, from game to film, has been raging since games first began. What separates Dragon’s Crown from this is the nearly unprecedented amount of vitriol spewed by all involved. I figured it’s about time I voice my own opinion, since I’m the only one on the internet that hasn’t at this point.

Your opinion is ridiculous, but still opinion.

There is nothing wrong with his art style, this wouldn't have even been an issue if the wasn't for the bitch fit thrown over nothing at shitaku. This crap is getting old.

Kamitani art is Unique & Unlike the usual Japanese manga or anime style character designs. Reason why i fell inlove with Amzon, Elf and Sorceress.

Oh well, can we get some insights about the game systems in place, how will we level up, what items are permanent in the inventory, how quests are structured, etc. instead of this tiring debate concerning one sorceress' boobs. I mean come on, Final Fantasy X's Lulu did that years ago and no one cried.

Now because Vanilla Ware is easier to attack than Squenix people are going bat shit crazy with their forks and torches?

It's the game I want, not the boobs. And in my opinion, the art looks awesome. Extremely competent coloring and shading, perfectly animated, and quite unique. But it's still the game that interests me, with it's gameplay.
