DIRTY PAIR model sheet, circa '98 by AdamWarren DIRTY PAIR model sheet, circa '98 by AdamWarren
From a long-ago ('96? '98?) time when I was hoping to get other artists to draw Dirty Pair comics I'd write for 'em*, here's a design sheet I worked up for Kei and Yuri's body proportions.

I originally tried to draw the DP 8 heads tall, but as the years went by, I grew tired of drawing the elongated, spidery legs that an 8-heads-tall hottie's proportions require, and switched to a more reasonable 7-heads-tall (or less) scheme. Also semi-interesting: The '96-era Kei and Yuri sport narrower hips and thicker waists than I'd customarily draw nowadays.

For more DP wackiness, check here: [link]

*Like many (or most (or almost of all)) of my brilliant plans, this effort came to naught, as you might already have guessed.

This is one good example of the female anime anatomy standard back in the days. They got thinner and thinner as the decades went by, don't ya think? :XD:

Really love your work, Warren, and your adaptation of the Dirty Pair is one of my favorite. I'd be really glad if take a look of my take on your take.:)

BTW, I always thought the "Sacral dimples" were those dimples on the sides of the butt-cheeks. Shows what i know.

I tried the "7 heads" style once, but it just didn't work for me; my figures turned out too stiff.
I just 'Eye-ball' it.
Obviously it works great for you, though.

Kei Does not lie!! She has always been cuter than Yuri, you can't argue with an acclaimed and trade marked HYPNO-BUTT!

But I may be biased seeing as Kei was always my favorite of the Pair, and up there among all characters.
