I find it kind of interesting that yours is the only journal where I've seen this meme posted where the majority of the comments risked actually being critical/honest. And I wonder if that's because you seem to have a decent sense of self-esteem/ability to take criticism, or maybe you're just more known and so more people are commenting. I've resisted being entirely honest in the other journals, for fear of causing distress to certain paper-thin egos ( that's not a dig at anyone - all fangirls tend to have paper-thin egos, as a general rule).

My honest comment to you, regarding your work, is this: It took a while for your art style to grow on me, but it has quite a lot. I don't agree with your visual representation/interpretation of the Dethklok characters in some ways, but your style reminded me vaguely of Aeon Flux when I first saw it (God knows why, and that isn't an insult), so I kept looking and I do like that it's a style that is distinct without being derivative of, say, Japanese manga. That is, I enjoy looking at it, even when I'm not agreeing with it. Which is unusual for me. Although I admit that I also like your women more than your men, most of the time, and for some reason sometimes when you draw the Metalocalypse characters as women, I recognize more of their personality-from-the-show in them than when you draw them regularly. I have no idea why that is.

While I can see where people are coming from when they say that your stuff is often repetitive, I applaud your ability to be consistent. Most amateur artists/fanartists aren't, myself included. Because we know what your Skwisgaar looks like, we instantly recognize him in a picture - no matter what position or part of him the picture is of. That kind of consistency takes discipline - and requires drawing a character over and over again. Which is pretty repetitive, and why so few artists accomplish it.

Personally and non-fanart related, I have enjoyed exchanges with you and I think you're a clever and interesting girl. There's a lot I think I'd like to know about you.

They're probably being more critical/honest because I can take a hit *lol* I've been taking them IRL for quite a while, so the internet is no worry :3

You're right to say that you can see a bit of Aeon Flux in my art (no offense taken at that, btw) because Peter Cheung is one of my many influences.

And you're right about art being consistent. Skwisgaar (or anyone else I draw) would look odd if I drew him differently each and every time. Modernist!Skwisgaar in one pic, Pre-Raphaelite!Skwisgaar in the next wouldn't really add up after a while. Besides, he and the rest of the characters look the same in every episode (with the exception of the occasional wardrobe change) So why not have that carry over into fanart?

And like I've said before, my art gets to be repetitive because there are certain poses/situations I like to draw a character in because that's what I enjoy. But I forgot to keep in mind that not everyone likes what I like, so I ended up flooding a fandom with things I found appealing without really thinking about other people. I'm not gonna lie when I say I feel bad about that.

And I'm glad you like the women I draw, even though I don't dwell on the female form as much as I should *makes a note to draw more girls*

And hey. Drop me a note if you wanna know me ^^

Peter Cheung is a good influence to have! Aeon was the hottest thing on liquid television. I don't think I'd apologize for being repetitive, but then I also flood my fandoms with what I like, because that's what I want to see more of. I'd only keep an audience in mind if I'm getting paid for something. I'm that callous, and that shameless about such things. Which could be why I tend not to have many readers or get very involved in fandoms as a general rule.

Sure thing. I'm twilightspeaks or twilight_speaks on pretty much everything under the sun. ^.~

Hon, I'm not going to bother with anonymous here for two reasons-

1) I'm not the poster of the original comment

2) when I say want I'm gonna say, you'll know who I am anyway!

I just wanted to let you know that I have three, that is 3, 2 inch binders of your art. Just your art. Two completely full and the third starting and well on the way.

And that doesn't include the fictions binders of your stories and the art that goes with them. Or the art you did for others' stories. You are the most prolific artist in the fandom that I know of at any rate.
