And here I thought it was just me! Arf's design looks extremely off in that picture... is that how she'll appear in the movie? It doesn't look right compared to her old design.

Arf just looks more detailed to me.

I think her head's too small compared to her body, also.

Even Arf in puppy mode is slightly off, unless she's supposed to look that fat.

Anyhoo, re-watching A's is kind of paying off!
- That tooth length fang thing. She looks like a Saber-Toothed Tiger in that Movie 1st picture, loooooooooool.
- Snout does look off. It looks like a cross between a bear and a big feline snout to me. I guess it's because it looks too wide.
- Yes, the eyes do look different. It doesn't matter either way to me 'cause they both weird me out. >_o
- Wolf Arf with no battle armour thing looks kind of weird. But if Zaffy can do it, so can Arf. 8D
- Probably the angle, but her tail looks like.... not a fluffy tail, that's for sure. LUMPS.

lolthepawsstilllookbad Oh gosh, does her right paw look like it's broken or something? Wtf.

Being "more detailed" doesn't exactly mean that it "looks right", though. And even then, "looking right" doesn't mean it's anatomically correct, either. yo sup CLAMP

Then again, this is the Nanoha anime designs we're talking about. Who can forget that one Movie 1st poster with the huuuuuge Nanoha eyes? Ugh. Or, you know, the red ribbon that used to be on a certain White Devil's barrier jacket AHEMMMMMMMM.

Looking right doesn't mean being exactly like the series Arf, either. There is nothing that can relate to her since she's a one of a kind familiar that only appears in Nanoha. Using anatomy in anime, doesn't work. Frankly, she looks cooler in that image, I don't care what you guys say~

The director did say new designs, so there you go.

Meh, her new design still kind of bugs me a little. It's not as bad as when I first looked at it, but she doesn't look like Arf to me.

You're right. She doesn't have to be exactly like the series Arf!

Arf = wolf
Arf in movie 1st picture = bear snout

Or Saber-Toothed Arf. Either way, I would like more wolfish qualities on my Arf.

Using anatomy in anime, can work. If it didn't work, we'd constantly see GONZO QUALITY. Or DEEN. I'm not going to think about CLAMP or Key.
Hokay, I'm supposed to be doing more Nanoha-related work right now....
But uh, maybe I should have made myself a little clearer. The anatomy of the body is what works. Usually. There's always something out there pushing the limits or breaking your mind like Kaiba.

The eyes pretty much kill whatever semblance of anatomy anime ever had.

Anime enlarges what loosk good, and reduces what does not. Why do you think the eyes are always so large, while the nose so small? Not to mention there is almost always a focus on pretty hair.

The body anatomy...works to some degree, but you can almost always see a difference between RL proportions and anime, with the hands and legs.

But what I'm not sure of is why I even care.

...yes, go work on Nanoha-stuff and gimme.

Fate has the absolute most proportional and gorgeous anatomical structure ever.

Nah, it's relative. I think there are some that have also a very good or even better anatomical structure.

More like subjective.

Need to stop debating anatomy in anime, srsly.

A good anatomical structure would probably make them look less attractive, as human beings just can't compare to animu characters, lol.

Did Nanoha receive a breast-reduction job in that Vivio-wallpaper?

Hmm...

Speaking of Vita, did we ever have this particular piece posted?



Got some NanoVita going on in there, it seems. It goes over Nanoha's big injury incident.

Let's have some silhouettes too, though you all probably have already seen these.

... the art style made Vita's eyes look exceptionally creepy at times.

It's just because she's lying down so her breasts would appear smaller.
