Pornographer ZONE joins Skullgirls dev group Lab Zero
This is like if the guy behind Black Lagoon made a femdom hentai. Wait, that happened. This is like if Medaka Box was drawn by a doujin artist. Oh, that happened too. This is like if my favorite hentai artist made a manga about Sega and Nintendo fighting each other as fantasy characters that got an anime adaptat-okay, so this isn't the weirdest news I've heard related to porn.
ZONE, infamous internet flash artist and maker of many porn parodies of things you like, is a pretty big supporter of Lab Zero and their Skullgirls game. The cult fighter has been fighting hard to stay afloat and gain a larger tournament base, with a lot of problems getting in the way. They were pushed out of EVO in a drive due to SSB fans going into a massive donation wave (and being rather scummy dicks about it, but that's another story altogether), while plans to add new characters were put on hold due to money issues (although they did get an exibition tourney at EVO out of respect for their help in the donation drive). To try and fix this set back, the guys in charge decided to start an Indiegogo drive for their game in order to add a new character. It's nearly over and has been a huge success, gaining enough money to add two new characters and other extra features.
Part of the reason was due to the popular ZONE heavily supporting the project. See, he's a huge fan of the game, as you can tell from the really good porn he's made based off of it. It's honestly impressive how much he gets the art style down. Needing new animators and impressed by his work, even if it isn't exactly kid friendly, ZONE was hired on as an animator for the game, saying the following on Tumblr:
Congrats go out to ZONE, proving that when it comes to nerdy things, a life supported by shameful hobbies can actually be rewarded if you do those shameful things well enough. While you're at it, donate to the Indiegogo page before the drive ends, linked above in the second paragraph.
