    So... I got myself a wacom tablet for Christmas... because I've wanted one for like ten years. I'm not really a -great- drawererer, but I like to draw, so... this was the result of me sort of screwing around, trying to get a feel for drawing with a tablet instead of pencil/pen and paper.

    It's not amazing... and yes, I have always pictured Daklore as having stubby horns instead of massive goat horns.. I'm weird, so what! (not actually sure his eye colour is green, but, we'll roll with it, I don't even know if I wrote in eye colour in his description...) And yes, i know... the eyes are wonky. I've never been good at lining up eyes D: (my hands are worse. Far far worse.) And it's got wonky colouring and brushes used because I was... literally, playing around and seeing what I could do. Also, I think that ear is too high... D: Definitely too high
    Funny.

    I always pictured Daklore as a really tall gnome.

    If I'd said something about romance novels I'd understand the salt. Either way I recognize the unpopular opinion that 'Western' art is nice or that differences in taste exist. 

    I was thinking more along the lines of: 

    I'll also concede that my post was pretty low effort. I looked through the first few pages of this thread after posting again and I see plenty of different styles to appreciate.

    People honestly draw in the style they are familiar and comfortable with. As you can see above, I am terrible at western style, and you'll probably find with the evolution of pop culture most people will be more at ease with cartoonish styles (as it's more familiar, much easier and there are more tutorials for them).

    I am not directly pointing fun at you, but more of the culture of fantasy novels where a vast majority has beautiful women in them with no flaws, or a single flaw that's not actually a flaw and the overcome it or turn it into a positive and OMG EVERYONE FALLS IN LOVE WITH HER.

    And I always pictured Ryldagh as a really short shadow elf.
