Dr Wahl,

valid point. To sharpen mine a little, though: I would not be commenting if the male and female versions had the same `issue'.

I agree with Dr Wahl on the issue.

Well, if I want to complain, I would say that the male version doesn't look awesome enough. ;) And the female version looks too awesome, I'm almost jealous. (:P)

Apparently a 3 pixel width of belly showing is a hot topic. :shock:

Just be nice and give the ladies what they want.

Essentially the debate is nothing deeper than that.
This message used to be meaningful.

Bankai,

It's not about the skin-- this is about the fact that the male version is `long enough' while the female one for the very same item isn't, thereby implying that one is natural for men and the other natural for women. Using the other two spritesheets everyone can now pick what they personally prefer.

Why MUST girl dress like a prostitute to please men? Remember that this is a role playing game, where the characters are in fact people with a mind?

As for the sprite, nice work, but the botton outline for male sprite is too dark, and the stomach area of the female sprite is too blurry.

Also, remember that directional light doesn't lose intensity.

Yes which is why we should allow them as much variety as we can (so they can customize their character to fit their personality).

Saphy,

I tried to address your points regarding smudginess and brightness in the female version. Does this look better?
