I didnt want to write anything about it until it had blown over. So to speak... I didnt want to look like many many outlets who appeared to use it as a way of getting hits. Anyway, I'm saddened that it is STILL an issue, and STILL people believe it is about ethics in games journalism! Yes, I do think there should be self policing investigative journalism within the games industry into ethics.There should be in every industry. No I do not think it should be under the banner of a "movement" which was formed after a case which was harassing a woman in which she received death threats. Then that same group continue to harass women in the games industry.
I say if you want a recogiseable positive movement for change MAKE A DIFFERENT HASHTAG! And actually do some investigative journalism. This does not mean singling people out/ reading old opinions from the 90s( when there actually was a lot of corruption! youve kind of missed the boat!).
Your targets ought to be big companies, awards ceremonies giving paid for awards. Not individuals who write about games who receive a pittance in return and maybe a free game. If there is anything to write about there its that you could campaign for freelancers to receive a living wage! Then they wouldnt be "so easily bribed" If indeed that does happen anymore!
I would mention that it is worth taking everything you hear on this in a case by case way. As with most things. Take for example the Kotaku Bayonetta review. A disgusting piece , written seemingly as a reaction to gamergate, calling the game sexist and doling out a low score completely in reaction to that view, when in fact Bayonetta is a strong female lead who is fully in control. Unlike many female characters in games. Besides which a witch ought to be naked if anything going by folklore . I do hope this is the case in the next game to maybe put the point across! So yeah, dont be swayed into supporting gamergate because of some peoples ill informed backlash. In truth feminism means equal rights for women. Simply keep that in mind whether you claim to be one or are for some reason against feminism (possibly because you dont realise that is the true meaning.)
Anyway, if I've helped even one person my work here is done :) . Now lets draw more nudes... but ones that could kick your ass...

Gotta say: Your lean ladies are more plausible than many muscle girls on this site. Good work!

Thankyou! I am trying to get them more plausible! People say acrtoons are easy but man, I could do a million realistic paintings in the time I've spent doing these. With no regrets, I knew it would be a challenge!( didnt think it would take nearly 10 years though :D )

Truth be told, RL girls who look like your lean ladies might have a dangerously low level of bodyfat. But hey, it sure beats muscle size which even steroids can't achieve.

Yeah I mean cartoons are cartoons :) . In either case, ha although yeah the crazy steroid pics some are cool when theyre well done but is definitely the extreme of a cartoon or charicature! Or to some a grotesque. As for body fat it varies person to person. Granted it is low body fat, but high protein diet, heavy weights and some cardio will get you pretty damn close results. These cartoons are dedicated! It would be an interesting project to redraw some pics with average weight . Might have to try that.
