Player complaints over the original pose of the quirky kid sister character were addressed last week by Game Director Jeff Kaplan, who said his team wasn’t comfortable the butt pose either and would be changing it, which of course sent the usual suspects into a frothing fight over “artists’ rights,” by which they mean artists’ obligations to render all the butts. ALL the butts.
Well, the butt pose people are going to be happy about the (side-butt?) replacement pose that is apparently Blizzard’s solution, which is plainly derived from pin-up art, most likely a piece by Alberto Vargas, as Twitter user @christianmccrea noted.

What do you folks think — is this an improvement for the character’s personality, or is it just more awkward than the original? Just keep it clean down in the comments, guys.
