Aside from the cover image, which I think can be interpreted as "just a light clothing color", I haven't seen any other official artwork of Ashley where his behind is visible.The plethora of official artwork is pretty explicit about what’s going on back there
Could have sworn there was plenty of official art in things like the Ultimana book, but it's been a *long* time, and my brain might be playing tricks on me.
He's even doing the comic-book-woman spine-bendy "front-on stance but still show off the ass" pose. Amazing. This is pure beefcake character design and you know what, it's not my thing but we need a lot more of it.
Speaking of which, there was a short american Vagrant Story comic tie-in with the game, drawn in typical 90s style. Sadly, I haven't found any images from it that shows Ashley from behind. As a matter of fact, there seems to be some pages that suggest that the artist didn't want to draw him below the waist at all. Is it because of Liefeldian incompetence, or were they perhaps unsure if they could do Ashley's magnificent posterior justice?He's even doing the comic-book-woman spine-bendy "front-on stance but still show off the ass" pose.
