Skullgirls - Valentine by *Speeh
A fantastic fan art of Valentine from Skullgirls. What I find great about this artwork is the texture on her body and the way Speeh colors her. It kinda makes the character pop out of the page! Just look at the shading and the muscle and the soft reflections. It feels 3D yet staying true to Skullgirl's 2D art style. Well done (

It's a cartoon, guys. A caricature. Cartoons tend to be like that with exaggerated body parts. Her boobs are that big for the same reason her hips are that wide, her eyes are that big, and her nose is that small.
Despite it being a cartoon, the coloring of the picture has a lot of depth and really makes it (and certain body parts) pop out, just as the suggester said. I've been following Speh for a while and his deep, toned coloring style is what makes him stand out to me. I think he has good muscle sense, too, which really heightens the erotic effect. Just because she has a revealing outfit and pair of large boobs does not mean it doesn't have some artistic merits.
I also admit to being surprised to see one of Speh's as a DD (no pun intended) after all this time. Why this one of all his pieces? Maybe it was the most worksafe.
Artist likes big breasts and cleavage. Who is anyone to stop him from liking, drawing and uploading pictures with big breasts? If you don't like it, find another artist to follow. They're within DA guidelines. And who am I to stop the suggester from suggesting pictures with big breasts? Seeing as there are plenty of pics on DA with big breasts, I guess the problem you have with this one is that it's a Daily Deviation when Daily Deviations are supposed to be artistically demure and meaningful. Am I right?
Also, I'm not really well-acquainted with the character, but apparently she's a body-modification-type, sadistic nurse. If her breasts don't look real, that's probably the point.
I have a problem with it anyway, but it's all the worse for being a DD. Artist is allowed to draw and critic is allowed to critique! What's the problem? I'm just calling them out on their sexist assumptions.
