Mookie came up with an idea for his imaginary race's culture but was too lazy to think the details through.

If Mookie wanted us to like Milov, then having the supposedly-progressive guy be the one to blow up the church to appease and fall back in line with the conservatives sure is something. If Mookie had any understanding of writing themes or characterization... There's a very low bar in coming up with satisfying story beats and Mookie fails it every time.

I'm not even sure if what happened in werewolf country was originally what Mookie had in mind. He was still reeling from his own IRL breakup and that was clearly influencing...well, everything. The only story beats he wanted to satisfy were his own to make him feel better.

Especially for Siegfried. Making the whole cast of characters hate him was still going to happen no matter what, I think.

I hate mookie using that splotchy inky brush for ALL plants as well as the ink effects, I didnt even know the necromantic vines were supposed to look like plants at first, and in that image. I wish he'd just draw on leaves or flowers at least for closeups or not always use pitch black

If Mookie had any understanding of writing themes or characterization, then Milov could've been torn between being loyal to his people's traditions or loyal with his ideals. Maybe have the ordeal with Siggy give Milov the confidence to say gently caress you to the conservatives and protect the church because he's being loyal to his ideals. Or maybe he could find some clever third solution. There's a very low bar in coming up with satisfying story beats and Mookie fails it every time.

But if Milov didn't blow up the church, how would Jayden be punished for her crimes? I mean that's really what it's all about, I think. "Look what you and your wandering uterus did Jayden, Milov had to blow up the Luanian church!" It's just like when Mookie writes arbitrary, ridiculous laws for his fantasy world that force the plot to go where he wants, except he built this whole werewolf culture around shaming one woman.

As an aside, I loving hate how Katya stopped mattering to the plot as soon as Mookie reveals that she has a mental disability.

Don't worry, she comes back for the arc based around the worst character.

I realized something, I think he traced that pose and then just added a second (third?) tit to the side under corpsemomwife's arm to try and make her look like she was twisted that way, because if you erase that armpittit it actually looks kind of normal



but hes so bad at anatomy he didnt know how to actually make her look twisted, so he just drew a third tit


also i have the mind of a 13yo

Also, while I'm here, I'm eternally unclear on what corpsemommy's skin... texture... is meant to convey.

Nah, that can't be it, it's completely flipped from how Mookie drew his scene. That means he couldn't have traced it.

That is apparently what Mookie thought people would say when he had the "clever" idea to flip it.

Literally the only significant change is loving up her chest so he draw draw both her breasts.

One thing that bugs me is that in order to get to that pose, Corpsemomwife is once again the one to scoot over and cuddle Snout while he just lies there.

Agreed, it's really obvious how Mookie's first priority was to shame and punish Jayden, and every detail in this story just stemmed from it. Mookie finally had the chance to expand what a foreign country's culture is like, maybe show some actual writing chops, and he squandered it. It's really loving gross how much Jayden gets shat on considering Milov does worse with his successful* murder and reinforcing xenophobia by blowing up the church.

His arm is in an unatural position, because the original is much more of a flat overhead view than the angle Mookie drew the headboard at.

Man does not have a gently caress to give. Even considered this would be a very unsatisfying page to leave on and said who cares.

Why does he shade her breasts that way, with a line running down from the nipple? It looks like breast reduction scars.

Also, seemingly every figure on this page is being traced. We're fast approaching what I predicted: Mookie will soon never have to actually draw Snout - or possibly anyone else - again.

Edit: gently caress, he's drawing her pubic hair shaved on the lips again? That's such a weird little gross detail.

Yeah, Jesus, these were my first reactions to that as well.

What's good is the stuff that he doesn't draw, and what's weird and creepy are the little details he does draw.

But it's also hilarious that he's so adherent to using traces that Corpsemom has gone from somewhat pudgy to fantasy-model thin because god forbid he use these photos for suggestion and placement rather than just tracing outlines.
