The Good Ol’ Days Are Still Going Strong
Anyone else remember the Great Nipple debates on livejournal? Occasionally there would be big rambling discussions on whether or not Megamind has nipples, and whether he is a mammal or not.
Despite careful scrutiny of the scene where his Black Mamba costume is ripped and a nipple should be visible, there hasn’t been any final word on whether there really is one there or not. Some claim there is, others say it’s just a shadow.
But the really cool thing is…everyone has their own opinion, and are completely okay with everyone else’s opinion.
Fan #1: ”Yeah, I think he’s a mammal. I mean, look at his mom! Clearly a breast-feeding, milk-producing species.”
Fan #2: “Eh. Not alien enough. I say there’s no nipples. And completely different genitalia. I wrote a fanfic about it!”
Fan #3: “Cool! Tentacles, perhaps? Heck, I’ll read it!”
Fan #1: “Ooo, me too!”
I just love this fandom.
Someone at DWA checked his model for us and didn’t see nipples on him, but that doesn’t mean EVERY model for him nor does it mean it’s not like… idk some added layer or something. (Idk jack crap about 3D modeling okay so this is my guess… I just know there’s a odd difference between the models in the movie VS. Button of Doom, it looks like either a) lighting layers missing, or b) texture layer missing from the models.) There are various things to consider— every character has low res and high res models, some are extra detailed for closer shots while others are low detail because the character is shoved in the background for a scene. (It makes rendering the scenes faster)
tl;dr 3D models are not something I’ve actually studied so have a lot of questionable theories and also screw canon he has nips IN MY HEART
