Jaalek (First Concept) by Erkhyan
Jaalek (First Concept)

Picture drawn a few years ago (sometime between 2009 and 2013).

Just a concept drawing for one of my characters.

Soar (2002)

More really old art I dug up from the archives. I replaced the absolutely horrid original minimalist background with a more suitable (but still minimalist) one after scanning it today

Pursuer (2004, colors) by Erkhyan
Pursuer (2004, colors)

I found this one while digging through the depths of my hard drive last night. The original file's timestamp is from mid-July 2004, so I assume that I'd drawn the original picture (on paper) shortly before that.

Admire one of my first attempts to use Photoshop (with a mouse, no tablet!) to apply colors to scanned lineart.

I found this one while digging through the depths of my hard drive last night. The original file's timestamp is from mid-July 2004, so I assume that I'd drawn the original picture (on paper) shortly before that.

I later tried to apply colors to it with Photoshop, without a drawing tablet.

A few days ago I got blasted by an artist for daring to say that I was not a fan of one — one — part of his picture, while acknowledging that it was only a matter of taste. I also faved the picture and gave it four stars out of five on SoFurry.

That... didn't go over too well, and apparently the artist (and his boyfriend) took it as an attack on his skills, his ability, on his artistic style even! When I tried to defend my initial comment, I apparently earned a few more insults and a block, and an accusation that I would have acted the same way they did if someone had left a similar comment on one of my pictures. Then the whole conversation was promptly deleted.

So, let me get this straight: I will never, never react with hostility to a comment of yours stating a mere preference. You don't like how I draw paws? You don't like the way I draw muzzles? As long as you don't outright insult me or my abilities, and as long as your words remain free of open hostility, I won't mind at all. Who knows, I might even enjoy discussing matters with you.

But one thing I will never do, contrary to the aforementioned artist, is to go through your gallery and insult you and your artistic abilities just because you didn't agree 100% with my tastes and stylistic choices.
