The heroic self sacrafice was good, but it would be better if their was no need to self sacrafice. For example. were some warrior to come and kill the dragon

Nah, that's still chauvinism, it's just taking away the glory from the woman because he's a man using his violent man tendencies to solve a problem.

I dunno, there ARE cultures that rate dying for your country highly, but taking the D very low.

I am trying to think of one where the contrary is true, but I'm drawing blank.

>> No.29412521


In D&D, the Dragon would own all the land we see behind the lady and the guy who's slaying him'd be some random Murderhobo.

So yeah, if I were the lady and my universe D&D, then I too would look unimpressed.

Arguably Egypt towards the end of the Ptolemaic era.

But for the most part you don't see that sort of thing lasting very long because the countries that prefer dick over death in battle tend to get conquered by more militant countries almost immediately.

It doesn't help matters any that the Egyptians didn't really make realistic art or sculpture the way the Greeks and Romans did. It's all so damned stylized.

They are.

The actual style was more of a form-fitting stretchy dress that ended just under the boobs and had little shoulder straps to hold it up.

Oh, my bad, I couldn't tell it was a photo. Ancient Egyptian cameras always make the picture look like some kind of engraving.

>> No.29413217

>realistic art and sculpture

Pls. They bascially plastered all of their shit with cape comic characters. Their art wasn't any less stylized than that of Egypt.

They only ever softened their canon and approached stuff that wasn't cape comic character statues during the Hellenistic period.

>> No.29413222

Yeah, seriously. Unless they coerced my girl Cleo (lol yeah right) into getting her titties out, then that guy has no idea about his "western interpretations" bs.

>> No.29416233

Where did the ancient Egyptians get stretchy fabric from?

>> No.29416540

The ancient aliens that helped the Egyptians build the pyramids had a spandex fetish.

But really, fabrics woven from processed reeds can have a remarkable level of stretch, and upper class Egyptian girls like that most likely had custom tailored dresses, adding to the appearance of tightness.

I'm trying to figure out what perspective this image is in and it truly boggles the mind. Her head, tits, and ass are sideways, but her shoulders and the straps on her dress are facing the viewer.

How flexible were these ancient fuckers?

>> No.29417604

It seems to me like the perspective is that you're seeing the person from the back while they look to the right. Admittedly, it's a bit strange, but it's just enough for there to be some sideboob.

>> No.29417648

>godfuckingdamnit why is there so much /pol/ discussion on /tg/ lately?
When you bring your politics into a place - as the general leftist/marxist/SJW crowd has done on /tg/ for the past year - you will inevitably trigger a backlash against it. You're witnessing that backlash these days.

>> No.29417852

The idea is to provide as much information as possible about what the girl looks like in a single two-dimensional image so the viewer can picture what she looked like.

By showing her head sideways, you can see the entirety of her hairstyle and the profile of her face. Since the face is symmetrical, you only need to see one side to know what the other side looks like.

Her tits are sideways because you're seeing both part of her chest and a bit of her back. You can see that the straps of her dress come across the outer sides of her tits in the front and down her back as pictured.

Her shoulders and the straps of her dress are facing the viewer so you can see that there are two straps (instead of just one, as a purely profile drawing would depict), plus you can see how the broad necklace sort of thing she's wearing comes across her shoulders.

Her ass is sideways so you can see the her dress clings to her every curve, instead of just hanging limp past the broadest part of her lower body.

If the artist had picked only one perspective, much less would be shown.

>> No.29420719

Ancient Egypt didn't do perspective. You have to think of it like a person squished down into two dimensions, like a flower pressed between pages in a book.

>> No.29421864

The drawing still leaves much to be desired. Like, what is her dress made of? Is it little scales, or is it patterned fabric?

I contend that a well-made, Renaissance-era painting that depicts photorealistic detail from a single viewpoint conveys more information than a weird Egyptian wall painting that shows multiple perspectives at once with little detail.

>> No.29424089

Patterned fabric. It's a dress not armor, you faggot. There is not such thing as stretch scale armor.
