I like when way you redesign the sonic characters and the
characters from other medias like drawloverlala does. You do them all so well. :) (Smile) :D (Big Grin) 

I think I also seen that you don't like the way Archie redesigns some
of the characters they've brought in from the other media's from Sonic from what I've heard.

Is it because they didn't redesign them from how they looked from before or something like that?

It can be for multiple reasons. It's hard to explain sometimes, there's things I think Archie does wrong with the designs that I think can be pointed pretty certainly as "wrong". IE, not just out of taste, but outright mistakes, things like the repeated use of "big burly purple character" or "no use of diverse shapes, especially in humans". Others do boil down to my tastes- I don't like the cyborg characters with the black and red eyes, I don't like how Breezie lost a lot of elements in common with her AoSTH take between the different outfit and hair, etc., but these latter aren't really wrong by themselves.

In the case of the AoSTH characters overall, yeah, it varies from character to character. I don't like how different Breezie looks, feel a closer design was workable. I don't like how Von Schlemmer was made into a cool DBZ anime dude, feel he could've been a much cartoonier human. Etc.

I dunno. If I try to boil it down, I like Amy's words in Chaotix- "Cool, Sweet, Catchy", and I feel a lot of Archie's designs are failing at these. They're often too safe to be cool, too bland to be sweet or cute, and due to that just don't pop out, aren't catchy. Or something.

Eh. Regardless, thanks for the praise, it's always good to hear. I think drawloverlala's got the advantage on me, she's a genius at this, but I have fun with these nonetheless :)

At first like I didn't really notice that much or it didn't bother me or so. But when people like you talk about it more and stuff even I start to notice it alot now with people saying things like "it has generic Cream heads and Tails looking eyes" or something especially when they bring the Witchcarters characters in Archie Sonic with some saying that Carrotia looks like Rouge and Cream. lol :lol:=P (Razz) 

What do you think of Drawloverlala's most recent redesigns from what she does with the characters?

I really like how she did Rotor, Antione, Carrotia and Fouke-Wulf.:) (Smile) 
Carrottia might kinda have a Cream looking head but at least she looks like her own self I think.

What a lot of people fail to realise when complaining about those of us complaining is that standards are something you also learn and improve over time. I don't mean this in an arrogant, "I have superior tastes" way, but just that since me and others have been drawing cartoons and consuming visual media for so long, often with a more critical eye since we wanted to actively learn from it, we also notice this stuff a lot more easier.
It's like music- I listen to modern metal and it all seems fine and normal to me, but then I talk to a guy I know who's been learning guitar and getting into metal bands for over a decade by this point and he can pinpoint a ton of stuff in the way the guitars are played nowadays and whatnot that I just can't grasp since I didn't train my musical standards. It's just how it goes.

Anyway, as usual I really like Lala's stuff. I don't agree with hedgehogs with separate eyes, but that Breezie and Penelope, they look great; I really like elements like Fockewulf's long torso; etc. Rotor feels a bit off to me, too soft, but I realise now that might be the idea, balance new burly strongman Rotor and old soft fat chubby Rotor. There's stuff there I wouldn't do, like the amount of colours on Sally's and Antoine's head, but that's the fun of this, isn't it- seeing how different people's influences and art and tolerances and ideas make things differ, innit?

Thanks, man, so's yours. Going through your Archie submissions to get the job the Spaz inspiration's obvious, but you ended up making it your own, which is great.

(don't let them catch you saying that about me on /sthg/, though :v )
