3 Pillars: Hypotenuse by karniz 3 Pillars: Hypotenuse by karniz

Drawn: December 11th, 2009 [CGed October 11th, 2010]
Program: Inks & Painter IX
From: 3 Pillars

A very bored King Hypotenuse.
He has a very bright and cheerful background considering he's a grumpy man.
Colored in for the new top illustration for my Online Comic, 3 Pillars. It got it's update today!

I was wondering... [comment if you care/or if you have read it before...] should I do another Halloween comic? I'm thinking of it.
Something shorter maybe... hmmm...

Please keep your comments about the illustration.

love the colour/texture choice in the background, makes it fun...

I don't get the jawline though or is it the mouth..

I'm curious. What does "Please keep your comments about the illustration." means? (besides the obvious one, is there anything else?) Why still enable comments?

Well, for one, most people don't actually read/consider that statement, which I'm surprised you even asked about it... hehe!

It's my attempt to avoid a comment like this:
With the Original art I post: "Hey! That guy looks like _[name of character]_."
or with Fan Art I do: "I also love _[name of video game]_."
AKA: comments that have nothing to do with the actual illustration.

I don't mind the 'empty' comments like "I like this!" or "Cool dude!" which are perfectly fine. It's mainly to ask people to be considerate of the artist's work itself, to ask yourself when commenting: "do you like what the artist did with the medium used? do you like the angle, lightning, or even the composition of the piece?" Now I know I can't have that sort of high expectations, but I want to at least try.
Like myself, I always re-read the comments I leave on others work at least twice - I try to always leave a comment that at least points out one thing in the illustration I like [or to gush that I love the artists' art! XD].

Why leave comments enabled? Because I still appreciate them - in every ten comments I might get one that's actually thoughtful, and it's comments left like that that count.
