I almost feel like I overcompensate with Zelos so much because I see so much over implication of all the angst and it’s like omg sometimes I just wanna see him being a bouncy piece of shit okay
OMG PRECIOUS ART AAHhhh we’re drawing together with crayolas dont forget to bring them I CAN’T WAIT TO DRAW WITH TEX AAAHHHH
thank yooou. I HOPE YOU ARE READY TO PARTY BECAUSE I ALREADY PACKED THE CRAYONS, GONNA TEAR THINGS UP.
AT LAST. Best of luck with all that! o/
Funny story, it turns out they made the appointment without telling us. We were only notified because Mom called to complain about them taking so long to call us. This is already off to a great start.
Also, I’m not going to be around too much until Sunday night-ish? I’ll still pop in, but tomorrow is that, and the day after that’ll be ASELIA CON WEEKEND YAAAAAAAY.
Okay actually this card really bothers me.
Aside from the fact that it’s from the Tower of Rem (whoever thought that this was a good idea, why?) there’s two things just completely wrong with it. One, Luke’s expression. It looks more like he’s in a smut fic about to give someone a blow job rather than he’s in serious, serious pain and emotional turmoil about having to die when all he wants to do is just live. There’s no actual emotion to his face, and that’s just lazy on the artists’ part since, if memory serves, that scene was really, really emotional.
Secondly, why is the Key of Lorelei complete? ‘Cause um, y’know it was the jewel being within Luke’s body that saved his life???
I mean are they even paying attention to detail anymore because it sort of feels like they’re really dropping the ball with stuff like this.
Well, he was going to stick his Key somewhere and—
Kidding aside, I agree with the OP’s sentiments. And if you want to get case in point about it, here’s a GIF of that scene in the TOA anime:
IT HURTS TO LOOK AT
Why, Card Evolve?! And if I recall correctly, this is supposed to be their milestone card for hitting about 100 million subscribers or something, so couldn’t they have put a little more thought into it…?
Also, I’d have to agree with Miss Usada’s reply, this type of weird-ass art is one of the reasons why I prefer Kizna cards as well.
Yes see- if they had closed his eyes and contorted his eyebrows just a little bit more, it would have been passable. If they just could have done that this card would be so much better overall and I wouldn’t have nearly as much of a gripe with it. There is a lot to be said for properly conveying emotion in art, and I find myself wondering if the artists for card evolve lack that skill- or if they benched the artists who CAN do that. The style jumps around from card to card, it’s highly inconsistent so they clearly have several different people working on this.
I’ve seen cards where the characters are making believable faces, but not recently. Many of the card sets that I’ve been seeing on here as of late have the characters looking apathetic, blank faced, ooc, or just… spaced out. I mean look:
Just standing here looking like a badly drawn OC on deviantart doing nothing interesting
Why am I standing here with my mouth wide open aaaah
why doesn’t Van-senpai notice me?
SHAFT head tilt + spaced out Tear please snap out of it
And there’s just SO many more examples of this if you go to the Card Evolve tag. So just the fact that they pulled this lazy BS with one of THE most important scenes in all of Abyss is just tragic. I’m highly disappointed in them.
My personal favourite will always be the JUST HUG THE FUCKING GROUND card
Idk about you guys, but my favorite was when they gave Dhaos 6 fingers.
I just got a call, and I have an appointment for a psychiatric evaluation tomorrow at 3.
FINALLY DAMN. I’m probably going to be scarce on the internet until then to avoid any random upsets. Wish me luck!
