I know I barely have time to lurk nowadays, but why were we paying attention to this Hiryu guy? In the past when some dick just wanted to be sucked off all the time (kr8tos) you just say something mean then ignore them until they go away. I mean, that's how I solve all my problems.
Also Cypress I appreciate you playing devils advocate on the quality of the kids art, but as someone who has pruned him several times, he definitely doesn't need to be in the portal. So many people draw/want to draw in an anime style, there needs to be stricter rules on it to prevent the portal from basically just being DA.
That said, I agree the kids artwork has been bashed more than it needs to be. While some of that as a result of him being a dick, his work is by no stretch the WORST that's on here. He has improved a lot recently, but I wouldn't say is good for the portal. Good enough that he should be posting here in the forum and (if he's willing) get feedback to improve.
Maybe that's just my bias towards people who shoot for that style. Maybe we could use an art mod who draws anime to give a biased opinion to counter ours. Maybe Hiryu should just draw something interesting every once in awhile. Lots of maybes.
ps WHY WON'T ANYONE COMMENT IN MY THREAD AND GIVE ME 5's LOVE ME
