i don't really know you,so i can't speak for what i haven't seen of you on the internet.but i can say this...
your art is pretty damn good,but i still think that the way you draw muscles is unique,scary,and damn weird,and sometimes doesn't even really look natural.but if your style is how you roll,then i won't object to it.

After reading most of these comments here, there isn't much I can say that hasn't already been said. This will be the 60th time you've read this I'm sure, but your style is very distnct, and I love that. The way you draw anything (be it your characters, skwissgar, or otherwise,) is intense, it has definite shape, form, and everything flows. I love the way you draw muscles; they're defined, yet lean, so as not to be reminiscent of DBZ characters (who look like they might explode if they do so much as blink). I love how you give every character you draw fan art of a little tweak, but only just...it's enough to where if we see it, we know that's yours, but it's within the frame of the character enough to appear realistic (i.e., Skwissgar's cigarette, Toki's tongue ring).

I don't know what goes on in the fandom world. I chose not to be apart of it simply because of all the people that abuse the power of distance and anonymity the internet gives them to insult and belittle. I haven't seen much, but you deal with these people so gracefully, and full of humor and I admire that. (Seriously though, can you imagine what would happen if people channeled all the fandom-flame fervor into something on a larger scale? Like world hunger? or Politics? That'd either be really good or really bad I guess...)

Oh, btw, I'm not sure if you saw my comment before, but a friend tels me adult swim did a dethklok fan art bumper, and used one of you pictures of skwissgar ('m not sure which one). They said he vaguely resembled Madonna XD.

Here's mah deviantart: http://jo-klown.deviantart.com/

Come see my stuff. It's shitty! Hope to hear from you.

I believe everything that has been said already is valid and intelligent (Save for the few that decide to be little brats and try to stuff you, the round peg, into a square hole like most other artists.)

Your art has its flaws - all artists have them. Penises aside, you know you've got trouble with your ribs. I also have issue with how you parse nose from forehead. It's just distracting. However, I will commend your ability to draw joints, muscles, hands and feet.

I see you breaking out of your stagnant approach to things, and you're working on expressions. A lot can be said for that, and I commend you wholeheartedly for your work in that particular field. It's a good way to go.

As for your lackeys as one goofball called them, I'd like to point out that you don't HAVE lackeys. There IS someone who basically manipulated someone else into doing something to others, trying to break up their friendship. That someone wasn't you. That someone KNOWS who they are. The someone else is me. And I feel so horribly for that, you have no clue.

I'm guessing you know who I am, and those who are involved know this, too. I can not apologize enough for being a complete and utter tool. I blocked the one who manipulated me on AIM, and have not spoken to her since. I dislike being used like I was. I was sticking up for a friend, and I become the enemy of my other friends and acquaintances.

Enough with the drama, ladies and gents. Hallo's art is Hallo's art. The fandom's spiralling into nagas and mpreg, and you find it en vogue to continue griping about shit that happened months ago. If you want to make a stand, make a fucking stand against Do Not Want, not shit that's already been apologized for and gnaws at someone every day.

1) your journal-design confuses me

2) I don't know shit about you, so I can only judge what I see of your art online :D I don't know you in the fandom or any other way but your pictures.
There was an up and down with me viewing your art. I could never settle down on a feeling that I could attach to the way you draw. One day I disliked it (I even did an overpaint of one pic long ago, just because it itched me so, hahaha) the other day I was impressed with the fluedity of lines. With the strong connection you seemed to have to your art - and Skwisgaar in particular. I see your fetishes when you draw things and what you perceive as beautiful. That not everybody can agree on it is quite natural (Hell, I don't even like all the body-modifactions myself, irks me to no end). And as long as you don't do art as professional, pfff, so who cares? Because if you *enjoy* yourself all is well. At least in my opinion. Becoming obsessed with being perfect and getting better will lead down a path of destruction. I've seen it happen, the ease and joy feels absent in such pictures, too technical. People can feel that even if the picture might look perfect.
Improvement comes with time, when feeling passionately about things. I have noticed that it is little use if people point out the mistakes. Because you have not seen them *yourself*. You need to experience mistakes in drawings yourself, recognize them as what they are fully and not just think "yeah, XYZ pointed out the legs are too short. She/He's right, but I never saw it." Maybe you will remember it for the next few pictures, but oops. On the fifth you do it again. I'm not saying critique is bad, it's very useful. But I think you must put all your concentration on it if you want to get rid of a mistake very quickly. Does this even make sense?

Anyways! Where was I? Ah, that's right. Your art. Yes, so it's repetitive. And at points for me boring or not part of my fetish. But so do other people enjoy guro and vore. Or rape (lets not go there, whatever is up with ppl LIKING rape is beyond me), not necessarily a bad thing.
One can expect what to see from you and maybe it's a gift or a curse, I don't know. There won't be big surprises, but I guess that's why many sign up to your galleries (If I wanted to see Enviroment CAs I go watch Hideyoshi- He's cool and all, but boring after a while too. So we are all hopping bandwagons here).
Perhaps what you need is a partner, a companion to share art with you, to push you and inspire you. And a partner whom you can push in return, with whom you have fun and can do crack stuff, trying out new things without the pressure of it being really cool or impressive and new. That's bullshit. It hasn't worked for me (pressure, that is) so far, but trying the things you are interested in - or always wanted to try out, just for the heck of it - and with a partner to support your ideas, everything goes smoothly. You get better, you see more. He/She might give you ideas or new points of view. Explain things to you how the anatomy in an arm works etc. Maybe even says "look at XYZ's gallery. I want to do that, too. I want to. How about you? Lets try it out! In one month we will show how far we got. Lets practice it everyday for five minutes!" I don't know if you have a concrete goal, but "becoming better" is a bit too sketchy. Become better in what? Picture composition? Colour? Anatomy? All at once? That's gonna be tough. So not struggeling all alone might benefit you.
I think if you really want to know what you do wrong and how/what you can improve with these anonymous comments, this isn't really a way to handle it. People should give you advice or maybe suggestions. Saying you waste your talent is bullocks. Waste it on what? Talent comes with joy, if you want to own the fandom, heck you can do it. You just need the will. And the right way to tackle the problem and not the statement "your art is boring". What you gonna do with that? Is the boredom one person sees in your art the same as for another? If you don't know exactly what stagnates your art, you won't get far. - Just like a tooth ache. So you know it hurts. And you need to get it out. But if you don't know where the dentist is, you're in a fix.
As they say, art is 99% technique and 1% talent. Of course having an eye for how things work, look, etc (I just say colours *dies*) is always a good thing. But I saw these guys, who said "I want to be an artist" and two years later they have incredible artworks to show for. They put passion behind it, determination and found a way that worked for *them*. So I say, do the things that work for you, too. Depending on how other ppl view your art is helpful, sure, yet in the end it's still your art, your way of drawing and if you feel happy with it, nobody should take this away from you.

Oh jesus, this comment seems so happy and encouraging D: F*ck. Too motivated for my own good.
Also sorry if I sound like a total douchebag and know-it-all, haha. Or that I am standing on a higher position or sth. ยด_` All I really wanted to say is that I am not necessarily the greatest of your fans, but there is something in your style. Something recognizable, something that calls out to me despite the fact that I might not like this or that. As long as it is heartfelt what you do, nothing is wrong with the way you draw :) There is always enough time and room for improvement.

Woah, long comment.

Whine, whine, whine. I had no idea, untill I looked here, you had "ruined" the fandom. That seems like a pretty big achievement for one artist.
I don't know you personally and I guess I'm not deep enough into the fandom because I have NO IDEA what the drama is about. To me, you're just an excellent artist who draws rather hot Metalocalypse artwork, albeit, with horse cocks. Some of the work is kind of similar, but you know, I have that problem too. It's just something to work on.

It would be a shame to see you stop uploading your work.

Hey I know I'm late to the party here but I'd just like to say that you honestly inspire me to draw better. No this isn't a 'circle-jerk' or 'worshipping' case here, it's just honesty. Yeah the anatomy is off, and junk but I'll be DAMNED if anyone in this fandom does it perfectly! x.x Odin God...it's just your style anyway and I happen to like it. :D

But yeah, you've always been really nice to me, so I really respect you and shit.

Actually, fuck anonymity...I don't really care for it anyway. :D

I know this is way late and all, but I didn't even join until the end of December.

There people are full of shit. What's BAD about having a distinctive style? It's very sexy, in an over-the-top spectacular kind of way.

Damn people, if you have a problem with nudity and/ or someone's art, THEN JUST DON'T OPEN IT. Why do you have to fuck it up for the rest of us?

Send me your trolls, and I will (badly) draw them getting skull fucked bu random Klokateers.
Just offering.

Oh wait, the annomyous thing. You don't know who I am. Well, maybe you can just post a list, or maybe they'll volunteer?
