Phoebe Skyscraper Ad by ElectricGecko Phoebe Skyscraper Ad by ElectricGecko
So this is another take at a skyscraper ad. It has Phoebe wearing her (yet to be officially revealed) Howlers work outfit.

I'm aware it's shameless. I'm partially ashamed of its shamelessness and partially proud of it.

The last Puck ad I posted here on dA was criticized on the following counts:

1 - the ad gave people no clue what the comic was about

2 - the ad was not really funny or in keeping with the tone of the comic

3 - the ad had nothing going for it beyond a pretty girl

All of the above criticism was valid, but I didn't have any good solutions. So the new ad addresses NONE of the listed flaws, and instead takes said flaws and flaunts them like they're on a runway in Milan.

Ah criticism, lampooning it can be so refreshing every now and again.

Well, I actually value the criticism, but I often don't have the time or skill to actually FOLLOW the criticism.

The old no solution solution. So basically we just wasted our time and good intentions. Hmmm. Geckos.

I like it. It gives you a quick glimpse of the character. Also, boobs.

Thanks. I try to walk that fine line of boobage that doesn't step over into creepy/nasty/alienating-to-female-readers territory.

You know, people comment on Gyno-Star's boobs all the time. And I'm like, "Have you ever actually SEEN a mainstream superhero comic? Because this is nothing."

I find the ridiculously distorted anatomies of many comic book females to be more than a little disturbing. I mean, the male physiques are exaggerated as well, but ... I really don't understand. I'm confused by it, really. I mean, I assume the ridiculous cup sizes are appealing to someone, but it looks so wrong to me, like some sort of horrible deformity. (Shudder.)
