Maybe the internet has desensitized me but I mostly just find that incredibly bewildering. Or maybe it is so horrifying that my brain refuses to process it.

I'm disappointed by the lack of continuity in the costumes.

It's a surreal feeling, seeing pics I scrolled past in search of smut posted here.

I'm actually kind of charmed seeing some good ol' fashioned horrifying fanart again! I mean, it's creepy and bewildering, but also I missed it?

I don't know!

The artist didn't even keep the same color schemes!

Default Post more horrifying fanart and I will post more serious critiques

It seems pretty clear that the garish patterns are an important part of the fetish, but there's not much going on to convey the metamorphosis. If this artist were serious, they'd take care to convey how each of the design elements was introduced into the result, not just rely on an unpainted extremity.

The artist has a very specific concept of what he's (I'm gonna assume it's a he) looking for in his fat robot housewives - the toothy smile with the red lipstick, the large retro hair, the heels, the half-shut eyelids beneath the raised eyebrows, the belt - but because he conflates all of these attributes into a single concept, he's not able to explore its full meaning. Every part of it is just suddenly in place at once. This confines it solely to the audience of people who already have some powerful associations with the concept of an obese and unconvincing Stepford Wife.

I believe that people create art because they have an idea inside of them that they find themselves unable to express to their satisfaction through conversation, and that if a person routinely returns to art with very similar ideas, it means that they are struggling to find an expression of the idea that matches their feelings, often because they do not yet fully understand it. That goes double for feelings of a sexual nature, which, due to their obscure origins and the social taboos surrounding them, are difficult to interrogate and therefore highly persistent. This particular artist's art, however, is not going to help him achieve any kind of introspective breakthrough.

I've been on the internet long enough that I'm not surprised 'woman being attacked by an Alien facehugger' is a fetish, but I am disappointed.

And if you ignore that advice then at least use protection - a helmet.

Fact A: Aliens have acid blood.

Fact B: Given A, Aliens are immune to very corrosive liquids.

Fact C: Toons can only get killed by very corrosive liquids.

So, given B and C, the toon alien that would burst out of Jessica Rabbit would be practically indestructible.

.... Ok, I might be overthinking this.

I got you beat on that:

A chestburster would never escape from the body of an indestructible, comedy-oriented toon like Jessica. It'd have to wait for her to go to a maternity clinic, complete with nursery-rhyme BGM and a merciful don't-ask-any-questions scene transition. When she and Roger came out like happy parents, the chestburster toon --swaddled and immobilized-- would just look around in silent panic as the screen shrank to black to the closing fanfare.

That feels more like a thought experiment/illustration challenge gone wrong than anything a real person thought up and thought would be sexy.
