I think the issue is like a lot a people say, there needs to be buildup too that imobile point and beyond. Because there is an intrest in the actions and consequences that lead to its zenith, some may find it either to unbeliavable or boring once that goal is over and surpassed. I like to see what directions people can take the concept of imobility thats new or entertaining, but once the chord of disbelief is cut it just becomes to hard or repetitive to follow. Not to say I don't whant to see people try though.
I'll admit it. I'm a pansy, I've got limits. Realism is the key to it for me. And if there's no cap on it, then the "high" of being turned on, can only get more and more extreme to avoid being stale and boring. Or that's what I'm worried about anyway... maybe because I'm not into inflation. I'm not into things that break the immersion. It's more like a... compromise, between reality and fantasy. Reality sucks, but fantasy is too chaotic.
Good question. Since I'm a writer foremost, I usually stick to obese (clinically-30 BMI to morbidly obese-40's). I don't recall having any of my characters become immobile. I do have some personal experience with immobility, as my mother-in-law is immobile. She is obese, but the lack of mobility I think is do to muscular issues/mini strokes, etc.
You already seen how I worked with that. I think I'm simply inexperienced in writing that big, but its also my limit. Because after that point your character can become a paperweight. Not much will go on with them.
I can tolerate up to super fat mostly, but it depends on how well/how it is drawn. As other people have said, build-up is a big factor. There's a huge difference in interest if its someone who gradually gets huge, when compared to "and suddenly, fats." In general though, once you go past immobile, it looks less and less like a person. While immobile a are alright, for me it's only to a limit. Like, if you go bigger then a room I can tolerate, but any huger then that and you lose me.
granted, once you get to a certain size you have to be pretty good at drawing it to make it a good picture. like if you just put a really big fat person onto a zoomed out picture of the earth... like... that's too hard to "understand" i guess.
Damn, so this is what it feel like to be in a minority. Superfat doesn't do anything for me, but I enjoy your work, so I still look at it. What was the one anthro you made, Tori? Yea, that's about as big as I go. Which is weird, because I like the growth aspect in all the DoCC comics.
