oh my god, that person really reeks of jealousy :p I see nothing wrong with styles so long as we get to understand what's going on :p I like yours very much :heart: I'm glad you didn't let it bother you too much.

Not at all. He took offense to a post I made on facebook. As if I was attacking him personally. It is what it is. I just let it roll off. :)

I assume it's because I don't draw overly bulbous muscles, weird static poses, loads of hatching that serve no purpose, and heavy blacks.

whatever, you're freaking boss status.
if someone tells you, "You're not that good." They are jealous. i get that all the time.
I bet you they couldnt draw simple shapes if they tried.

Gotta love the self-entitled pricks of the world who always seem to think their opinions are more valid than everyone else. Good on you for not allowing their words to get to you and instead turning their negative into a positive for your work. As the old saying goes "Haters gonna hate."

Regardless, keep up the great work your art is inspiring!!!!

Everything with a grain of salt. :D

I'm glad you took it as a compliment. I personally love your style; especially that it has an animation feel to it.

It might sound silly, but your work inspires me; tells me to keep pushing myself and helps remind me of goals. :)

-P.A.

I always take what people say with a grain of salt.

The guy meant it to be insulting. I just laughed it off. The only thing he managed to do was make himself look like an ass, and prove the point of my initial post on Facebook. The whole thing was about anatomy, and why studying it is important. I guess he felt attacked somehow. :shrug: He decided to take to insulting my work, and saying that it was too easy to do what I do.

I don't think what you said sounds silly at all. It means a lot to me that I can inspire people, and help them push themselves more. :)

...okay, um... firstly... wtf is wrong with Disney Channel? Gravity Falls, Avengers Assemble, Ultimate Spider-man, Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.- all very well done shows with great art. Secondly... fuck that person.

I know that those shows are great. The guy thought that, that sort of style somehow came easier. He meant it as an insult. I took it as a compliment. Because honestly those guys make good money. They're in demand. It is a growing business. And I know it doesn't come easy.

I'm not sure I could say anything with art comes easy. Like, at all. I don't care what style you have, you're literally drawing a bunch of random lines and shapes that trick people into thinking they're something else, so well sometimes that people completely forget that it's a drawing at all. Disney's been doing it for decades, and they've lasted that long for a reason.

I will! I appreciate the kind words. :) I have fun creating an animated style of art. People seem to think that it is somehow easier than traditional comic book art. That couldn't be further from the truth. The person that went off on my stuff conducted himself very unprofessionally, and immature. I usually tend to discredit people like that. :)

Not a problem. Yeah, I guess some people just like to be dicks for the sake of being dicks -not usually presenting themselves in a professional way xD

I'm not even phased by it, honestly. He was an obvious troll who felt attacked by a post I made on FB. I shall continue drawing the way I enjoy. Thank you for the kind words! :D

I actually don't understand why anyone would say this to you. 1) they're wrong and 2) it's incredibly rude. Ugh.

He was just mad at a post I made. He took it personal, and decided to attack me. :shrug:

I'm good though. I know that the guys that work for Disney make good money! :P

I'm glad it didn't affect you too much though! And yeah, joke would be on him if he was accurate anyway. Disney can pay well! XD

Didn't phase me in the least. I'll admit that I shouldn't have had the exchange of words I did with him. I felt I needed to enlighten him a bit, though. I don't think it helped! :P

I'm not too worried about if he does, or not. A lot of people came to my defense which was very heart warming.
