I'm only not bothered by this because of how often it's insinuated that Big Boss is also interested in men.
But you forgot the chunk of metal that sticks out of his forehead in that iteration of Big Boss. And some of his scarring. Both seen here: 1.images.gametrailers.com/imag… Also, I guess, some of his age marks. But those don't matter as much.
Unless you don't think they'd be visable from this angle? Just thought I'd give some honest criticism. It's good otherwise <3
Really sad you had to censor this just because it's two guys hugging with their shirts off. There's no naughty bits showing. Also sad you felt you had to give a "male/male warning." There are films and TV Shows airing all the time that are advertised as being "for general audiences" that just randomly and spontaneously have lesbian moments much more explicit than this, with actual nudity, without any warning, but people always feel they need to censor guy/guy. You know, because everyone wants to see lesbians, but when it's guy/guy, it justifiably warrants revulsion and horror. It's even sadder that artists feel the need to give warnings about this than it would be if actual warnings were required.
It's really...really not the artist's fault. Seriously. Some people just 'don't' wanna see it. So the artist is just trying to look out for that person's comfort. And just because it makes some people uncomfortable, doesn't necessarily mean that it's an "anti-gay" thing. And the TV/films thing regarding lesbians vs gay guys and how there's more censorship for one than the other? It's a completely valid observation. I'm against it. It's everywhere, especially video games (where there's that whole homophobia/sexism issue trending). But it doesn't really apply here. Unless there are pieces this artist hasn't censored or provided a warning for that depicted two (or more) females in a sexual light (or with the implication of being such), then...the artist isn't one to blame. They aren't enabling anti-gay anything and they aren't giving lesbians a free pass. They're just looking out for their audience.
