    Nothing really all that special. No offense intended when I say this - stick to the interesting articles, Artefact, art obviously isn't your forte. These are decent enough to be passed as good to anime fans, but many of these featured artists aren't as creativity talented as you make them out to be, save for a very few.

    The other day a commenter was telling me to drop the boring articles and concentrate on posting pictures of naked ladies.

    No offense intended when I say this - I would be doing the silent majority a grave disservice if I ever took any notice of a pompous windbag like you.

    I should reiterate that I never take any notice of what people say in the comments (except about specific points of fact) - only a tiny minority of people ever offer an opinion and most of those represent polarised extremes. It is just not a reliable sample of opinion.

    I'll leave picking apart your risible condemnation to someone else.

    I was the guy above who you already commented on. You took offense, though I don't blame you since I did come off as a douche. Saying this again but I'm horrible at writing, so I'm not very tactful especially when I want to give constructive criticism.

    That aside, I did mean the last sentence. You are great at writing articles and I check this site out at least twice a day for updates. As a long time reader, I have come to notice over time that we clash dramatically when it comes to artists(minus Geister, Red Juice, Naruko Hanaharu and some others). Coming out of an art college, I guess it's just one thing I can't help but to express since I can't seem to stop myself from clicking on these articles.

    Anyways, no offense and sarcasm intended.

    tl;dr - I'm a douche, I like your articles, I'm an elitist, etc.

    You did come off as being highly obnoxious.

    Let me be blunt and say that the artists are picked as much on their ability to appeal to the audience as their actual talent - there are some fantastic artists around whose works I would freely overlook as just not being likely to appeal widely.

    These highlights just aren't intended as appraisals of classical artistic talent in anime (which I personally greatly respect in the form of Hiroaki Samura and the like), and as you must be aware many of these talented artists have terrible shortcomings with things like anatomy thanks to tracing photos or what have you. Personally I prefer to look past these as many do improve.

    However, someone who happens to draw a character of the moment or have only a few striking images might feature alongside big names - as I see it I am trying to provide variety and appeal, not just rarefied talent.

    It's really sad how you get rated down so much just for stating your opinion as if it was offensive in anyway. The artworks ARE pretty much the same, and while he applies his own "style" decently, I can't help but to think that he's an one trick pony.

    I've looked at some of his works over a year ago when I first saw the Yuyuko suzumizu picture and was excited to see how he would apply the coloring used on the sukumizu for his overall porfolio. I was, however, disappointed that his other works were composed of generic burn-tool centric HCG colorings and he pretty much used the shiny coloring technique on sukumizus and sukumizu-like clothings.

    Then again, this is SanCon; I don't expect everyone to be an art critic but I, repeating what I said before, think that it is a shame to see people getting rated down for stating a legit and non-troll opinion. I expect the same thing to happen to this post as well but I guess that in itself would just prove my point further.

    I think the issue is in how the poster stated his opinion - he offered no reasons or critique, just an idiotic and obnoxious statement.

    Unless you think the artist to be the very best, you will have seen better. Does that prevent you enjoying the shiny sukumizu here though?

    The first guy probably got it coming, I understand that. However, the second comment was also rated down to hell:

    "seconded. Half of the pictures are just the same with different accesoires..."

    Maybe I'm a little biased here because I share the same outlook as this guy so correct me if I am indeed being biased but I don't see how that was idiotic and/or obnoxious(other than the obvious spelling mistake).

    About the artist himself: I already posted my own two cents below(albeit in a smug way, since I'm not really good at writing at all).

    Not really a valid criticism - I could have left them out, but thought instead to leave them in for those who might be interested. So in that respect, it is my "fault" that he appears to be overusing layers. Also I don't see what is wrong with artists releasing some WIPs or variations.

    #12. 1 sword is a timeless classic.
    2 swords is still okay, your sword got lonely sometimes, and now it has a friend.
    But when you have 3 swords, you... start to become that "weird girl that's got all those swords".

    Of course, with glasses that size, she's probably always losing them.

    I wonder what the hell that third sword is.

    Two swords, as in daishou, at least has the bonus of historical practicality.
