Warped motivation to register out of purely vindictive intentions? : vindictive? omg , VINDICTIVE!!??. I searched that word my friend , and i dont like it. I came here to tell you all what kind of reaction that image is getting out there. I merely told my opinion about it. Now , tell me where is the revenge there. Or are you telling me that i am hurting/anguishing the drawer with an honest opinion?

Bizarre and incorrect use of the word drawer? : My bad , some of the animesuki users have not english as a native language since we are from all around the world. I hope that you have no problem with that. If you are willing to teach me a new and more correct word meaning drawer ill be glad to hear.

To sum it all , i think you are trying to mock me. I came here with an opinion trying to be useful for the community and you use sacarms against me. I hope you had fun.
not really trying to make a "fool" of anyone here - i'm merely commenting on your lack of general courtesy because using words like "disgusting" is unnecessary for the purposes of evaluating a work of art from a general point of view. i find it hard to believe that you are unaware of the purely negative implications of such a word.

"all due respect" is used only to clarify an ambiguous or questionable form of wording/syntax/phrasing...when you want to make a statement with the clearance of "if this sounds offensive from a certain angle, i do not intend for it to mean it in that way." it doesn't automatically excuse the following sentence. If a stranger said to you, "with all due respect, you're a dumbass," would you really think that they had any measure of respect for you? of course not.

your reaction and your opinion are respected - this is a general courtesy that we all grant to one another as equal human beings... so why not offer that same kind of altruistic good will by stating your personal opinion in kinder, favorable terms? feedback and constructive criticism is great - words that hurt people aren't so great.

okaaaay, n.l. i admit, the nitpicking of the word "drawer" for not being the most readily used word for an artist was uncalled for ;P that was my personal bad there. hehe.

to end my bit, i do apologize for kachike feeling slighted, because that's unfair - i was, of course, reacting emotionally. my real intent was to simply say: "please don't use offensive words to express your personal opinions."

All this time I have never commented on any of the Kairins that appeared and disappeared off the main front page of AS.

Before I get to my point let me first compliment the artist on the details he/she have slaved over into creating that piece. It's a very unique and colorful vectoring style, but what caught my eyes wasn't the style of it.

It was the awkwardness of the dark outline of the lips, eyes, and nose. The black outline is just too strong for the image, it overtake all the beauty of the colors and designs that were implemented...

As others have mentioned, "beauty is in the eyes of the beholder" and I happen to find the details on the kimono and coloring amazingly beautiful but the dark outline of the three I mentioned just throws it off.

If it blended well with the skin tone, I would not have said anything. However it is your style afterall and I respect that and my opinion will just be my opinion alone.

I think Kayos said it best. I personally think that the piece is a wonderful piece of art, I love the hair and the Kimono and such. I even don't mind the eyes, the eyes stand out and look impish. What I think throws the picture off for some is the nose, the mouth and the the overdone blush.

Though I also know there are some people that like that look and find it very pretty and beautiful. It does make me want to see more of her work though.

Amazing detailing on the accessories and kimono! I do agree that the colored version looks devious...the drawing looks way more gentle and sweet. Not sure why that is...probably how the eyes standout with the bold black outline? Weird how that is. Oh well. Whatever. It's cool anyway.

I'm surprised at the dislike for Takumy's Kairin. Editing your hosts file to block it is one thing, but posting directions for everyone else is just low. I would have expected more openness than that around here.

I agree with the person above. Plus, calling a picture "disgusting" is probably one of the worst ways to offend an artist. I guess nobody would want his/her hard work being called like that, right?

Well, giving criticism like that without pointing out what you dislike and suggesting ways to fix it just makes the artist feel bad and doesn't help them improve at all.

Well all said and done... ^_^ i know lots of people have their own opinions .. and are allowed to openly express it .. maybe he/she didnt mean disgusting could it be " dislike" not of his or her liking.. But as an artist .. it does hurt and it makes me not want to draw for anyone ever again.. ^__^ .. But i know that lotz of other people do like it and that is what matters..

As for the details.. Yes " it is my style not to color upper lips .. .. usually manga style doesnt have lips .. do i find it nice to color the thicker bottom lip.. makes her juicy.. LOL ^_^ ..

As for her eyes.. it has always been my style to color them this way.. I cannot do cute .. i've tried.. my art is more on the sexy side..

0__0" Maybe that is why people like my sketches better.. Even i feel the same.. Bleh ^_~

Mikoo's is very cute! And very detailed, too. Good job!

Did the spoiler tag make it harder to notice my drawing? I did it for the sake of space, I didn't realize it was easy to miss.

That's nice

I love the various "faces" and different styles for Kairin character.

Would like to try my own vision for her. How do we do that? Just post here?

Nice to meet you all, I've been around for a long time but just now decided to do some forum posts.

Takumy, that is a wonderful piece of artwork. I prefer the drawn version to the colored one, purely because the colored version removes and/or makes difficult to see some of the detail and shading the drawn version has. But it's still amazing either way.

I don't agree with the negative responses the image has gotten. While it does lack the "cute" look many anime drawings have, the image could be compared to some of the more "realistic" anime styled drawings out there. Going so far as to call it disgusting and even offer ways for people to block the image was extremely rude and lacking of criticism.

Don't let such negativity get you down. I look forward to seeing more of your work.
