The Art of Adult

In checking out Hard's livejournal to catch up on the latest controversies, I noticed that he recently posted a little bit about his digital process. I love seeing that kind of information in the same way I loved those cheesy Star Wars TV specials where they showed the special effects guys blowing up Tie Fighter models. I like to know how they did that. Every webcomic should post a page with pens, paper, inks, Illustrator, CorelDRAW, PhotoShop, etc ... especially if the final look makes it hard to guess.
Whatever else it's done, the recent salvo of "Sexy Losers" reviews ('Pedia, Tart, Examiner) have given me a new respect for the artists of adult comics. Other strips can approximate anatomy. They can draw three fingers, hide limb joints or show everyone three-quarters view ... but not porn. If porn artists are good, they're great, and if they're bad, they're horrible.
