Damn it, now I'm picturing him as a Mok-like villain in the CAX universe. I don't want to because he's one of my favorite reviewers, but seriously look at that! He looks like you took two parts Phantom of the Opera, two parts the Grey rider, served on the rocks with a Tron garnish.
I cant really say im a fan of his blue-coloring and neon blue piano keys. I know its suppose to spice things up a bit, but i just feel that the blue clashes too much with the grey (and the color blue doesn't suit Todd well IMO). i really think making the coloring grey and the keys a glowing, fluorescence white would have been a better way about making Todd.
It would have also been really awesome if u had made his skin completely jet-black and had his face with no facial parts , (like the DC character, Question >> [link]). I think those touches would really fit better with his "In the Shadows" persona. Which is why i feel blue doesn't work for him, since it makes him stand out too much. I envisioned him as more of a wandering, loner type of hero/villain that blends into the darkest. (until he takes out his piano keys and kicks ass)
Anyways, u did a good job. I guess i just had another look in mind with I imagined an extreme-hero/villain version of Todd in the Shadows.
Plz dont take it the wrong way, I really wasnt saying you did a bad job, i just had a different vision for Todd. I wasnt implying that i hated it or that u should bend over to my words. You have developed a very great craft in your drawing skills, and ive faved a lot of your past work (including this one). Im just purely saying I had a creative difference of opinion with this piece.
If it seemed like i was being a jerk, i apologize and that wasnt my intent when i gave my comment. At the end of the day, these are your creations and you have 100% reign over how u go about making them. And just as u have to right to do so, i have the right to give my honest opinion.
Would u rather i just not give my true opinion and just lie??? From a creative standpoint, i would want my fans to give me honest feedback and different POVs from their perspective (it could possible be insightful). And from that id take from it what i will. So yea, sry if doing that made me seem like a jerk.
I see, im sure u do get a lot of flaming TGWTG fanboys/girls hounding down your neck all the time. And im sure you have been given very disrespectful comments in the past by asshats demanding u give them what THEY want. And from that, i can see how u could view my comment as just fanboy wining. lol
Im glad we were able to come to a mutual understanding. Im still very much so a fan of your work and I look forward to seeing more from u dude.
(P.S. It would be awesome if u did a revamp for the Rap Critic too ^__^)
