Equal Opportunity Fanservice: Creating Attractive Characters of & for All Genders


A little fanservice never hurt anyone, but the industry has been known to be rather one-sided in that regard. That's why we're here to teach you how to amp the volume up to 11 and harness the power of making players fall in love with your characters... this time, through a queer eye!Join Radiant G!, Monica Fan, GabeJamesGames and Sandra "Maxi" Molina as they discuss the history of fanservice, and how we can move forward in a more positive direction by designing attractive characters of and for all genders. Through this panel, you will learn how fanservice can maximize your characters' appeal, while avoiding the cis heteronormative male gaze exclusive pitfalls that character and costume designers have run into in the past.
