Moderately funny thing 30cm above knees

Postby McDuffies on Mon Jun 20, 2005 3:55 pm

Have you ever thought about pointy hair? I have. I believe that drawing pointy hair is a lame excuse for artists who can't get to draw a decent non-pointy hair.
I mean, how can something that started off in dragonball be good? And then, all fans of Dragonball blindly followed it, and other people jumped onto the bandwagon without even knowing what it is about, and suddenly you have a full web of comics with pointy hair. Suddenly, it's a shame not having pointy hair. Suddenly, people discuss whether this or that artist draws good pointy hair from profile. I mean, just look at this. No anome, yet, there is pointy hair. What's the purpose of it?
To hell with all Gokuy lovers! :evil:

I think you should go to hell.

Hey, fuck you! Pointy hair isn't some stupid anime thing. If you look at american comic book styles, you'll see all sorts of pointy hair. Modern Japanese manga was started from american art schools!
Don't give me this pointy hair is anime bullshit.
At least I have solid, non amorphous figures that are consistent as opposed to, you know.

Well, sure, when you copy/paste them.

I don't copy and paste! What the hell! At least I take the time to color my work and letter it! Maybe if you didn't spend so much time postwhoring, you could too.

Does it really matter all that much? I honestly don't think it does. It's just HAIR, dudes.

Actually I think hair is pretty important. It's the main tool I use to differentiate between my characters. Tito's got pointy hair, but that's just cause it's naturally spiky. Hair does that. It obeys the laws of physics!

Seth has pointy hair as well, I suppose... depends on how you define pointy. But Kay's got curly hair, and Gabe's is wavy. Gwyn has straight hair and bangs. *shrug*

Just out of curiosity, can I ask what prompted this sudden outburst, McDuffies?

What does it have to do with pointy hair? If you can't figure out anything on topic to say, don't attack me in the first place!

You make a topic and single me out! What in the heck were you expecting? I wasn't going to just sit there and take crap from you.

I just wanted to point out an example of how non-manga artists draw pointy hair. I didn't say your comic is bad, I was just saying that it's stupid that you draw pointy hair.
