Well clearly those must be "model photos" rather than pin-ups, because they don't have breasts the size of skippy balls.
Some of them were pin-ups, some were stars of the silver screen, some were athletes and some were from shopping sites.
They had a variety of breast sizes, too. So do the characters in EGS. Default Nanase is pretty well endowed. Ellen's definitely curvy. At one point Elliot calls them "Exhibit Ds," as in D-cup. Grace goes up to that size at will, too. We've already seen Ellen zap herself and gain enough cup sizes to undo three blouse buttons. A single dose fo "tea" is enough for "that's gonna be awkward" sizes in a lot of cases. FV5 turns A-cups to D-cups. EGS has small breasts, normal breasts, large breasts and very large breasts already, particularly if you count a date at the mall
. It doesn't have DiDi but DiDi is ridiculous and, to me, unattractive.
Come survey time, the most popular suggestions for pin-ups are almost all "Ellen supercharged-zapping herself" and "quadruple Tea" and things like that. I'm not talking about people requesting that we get some C- and D-cups for once rather than all characters having A or B cup sizes. The supercharged zap in question results in breasts so large that it's physically impossible to stand up straight. I'm talking about each one having a circumference greater than the owner's waist measurement. Supercharged zapping
doesn't result in an F-cup instead of a D-cup. It ... you know what? I can't tell a J from an S, but it goes OTT. Anyone who already has breasts THAT big either got them on purpose to appeal to some really sad specimens of "men" or already feel bad about it due to back problems, and probably can't read this thread anyway due to them getting in the way of the keyboard ... and the Patreon feed seems to be the target of a takeover by a mob of people who (a) don't think that went far enough and
(b) want to apply it to every female character everywhere all the time.
If EGS was all about breast sizes, I wouldn't be reading it. It's about people. See the hug at the end of Painted Black. See "I think I like you too." See "She's family. Help her. Not that complicated." If there's a breast-size-related theme running through canon EGS, it's that who you are is more important than whether you have breasts or not and how big they are, no matter how much your body selects its reactions based on other people's physical sexes (on a minute-by-minute or character sheet basis). The fanbase has been ... contaminated ... with a weird subspecies of human that demands Everyone Must Have Ludicrously Huge Breasts, though.
Try to imagine ... er ... xkcd comic feedback being swamped with demands for every character to be wearing at least 7 hats in every frame of every comic on xkcd ... and to have at least waist-length hair ... and enormous breasts ... and a penis of at least 18" length and at least 4" diameter at the base ... and tentacles. No, wait. That's lots of different things. Try to imagine xkcd comic feedback being swamped with demands for every character to be wearing at least 7 hats in every frame of every comic on xkcd or
xkcd comic feedback being swamped with demands for every character to have tentacles in every frame of every comic on xkcd.
I'd never heard of Metacarpolis but I knew Ma3, Gaia, Sandra and Woo, GGaR, S*P, Misfile, Exiern, Flaky Pastry, Elf Life, Deathworld, Delve, Between Failures, ... you know what? The list is too long to post here.
Oh, Willie McBride, it was all done in vain.
