Everyone dislikes anime for some reason  ???

Always surprised by this too! Seems to be some general disdain for anime in the pixel art scene. Always been this way far as I know, anime's been the most named 'dislike' at Secret Santa for as long as I can remember. Haven't people seen Ghost in the Shell, Akira, Evangelion, Mushishi, Samurai Champloo or Cowboy Bebop? So many great anime out there if you know where to look. The ones I named largely steer clear of the over the top typical big-bright-eyes anime style and opt for a more mature style too.

Though I have to say, while I like anime, I probably would dislike getting a portrait of an anime character as Secret Santa present. A background scene from Akira or Ghost in the Shell though? Yes, please!

The studio Ghibli movies have some great animation, awesome backgrounds and mostly tell creative, interesting stories.  Well worth watching too. I can fully understand that there are people out there who prefer realism over cartoons/anime though. Each to their own. I'm really looking forward to getting started   ;D

I actually prefer cartoons over realism to be honest, and I don't mind anime at all. Sure, realism is nice and all, but for the most part I get plenty of it via photos/videos and in real life lol. That and I find the "unrealistic" and sometimes vibrant nature of cartoons to simply be more interesting and appealing overall. Combining the real with the unreal though makes it even better for me - a fine balance with the best from both worlds is my sweet spot.
I'm also eagerly awaiting the moment I can get started on my piece :)

there's a consistent trend that Anime/Porn/Politics tend to break communities into low-effort posting content farms. It's not that they're the cause of it but simply that they're common features of communities such as DeviantArt, Tumblr, etc. I am sure this correlation is not lost on everyone

Maybe i am used to pretty nicely made Anime characters on Pixiv.
I have to say that a well made 24/4 Anime character still Needs certain knowledge and skill to pull off :D

And lazy work is always bad. Dont see ,,Anime=lazy'' in my eyes.

Well i guess i am the only one directly asking for the Thing People dread the most. I mean shouting that i like mecha woud have been to obvious :P

Will leave this open til this evening! Make sure to share the thread with anyone who you know would like to participate/usually participates. We weren't able to send forum-wide emails this year like we were the other years so turnout is a bit lower.

Hmm I think I missed it, but if you'll let me slide in last sec; cool! If not, no problem.

I like humanoid figures, interesting palettes, fantasy of all sorts (sci-fi to medieval/ D&D type stuff). I like geography, landscapes, classy architecture, vehicles and other objects as well.

 Pretty much anything will fly, except harm to innocents, gore and overly grotesque art (or anything disgusting).

All I ask is you don't be lazy really.
Orangemagick's dislike- I agree w/ 100%
