I said "a main character" because she shows up often and I forgot her name
I've read some issues of Jugghead, the art is still shit. It's not off model, it just looks bad.
Google "poorly drawn pikachu". Those aren't really off model, pikachu is a basic design that doesn't really need embellishing. If you do think it's off model, that's fine, because they still pretty much look like a pikachu. You can still tell that it's pikachu. But it's still not a good drawing of pikachu.
Her working on multiple things just means that she should prioritize if she wants to actually produce a high quality comic. She still does guest appearances and sketch commissions, maybe she could not do those things while working on the comic.
On her tumblr, the stuff she does in her spare time, the art is still bad. It's very complex, she has a very skilled approach to coloring. But her art is sloppy, she doesn't really finish certain features like hands and fingers, feet, backgrounds, and other things that she uses the pose of the body to hide. She's capable, but I wouldn't say she's a good artist
You're right, it wasn't intended to be a comic with cute looking characters. But it not being cute doesn't mean it's the only reason it's bad NOR that it's immune from criticism on those parts. This is a thread about bad art. The reason we aren't talking about the whole of the comic is because that's not what the thread is about
She should be criticized on all parts of her comic because that's the product she puts out.
Why would you not criticize parts of something simply because they weren't the focus?
If someone served you food and it tasted terrible, it was messy and greasy, and put together in a way that made it hard to eat, would you not criticize the food even if the chef's intent was just to serve it to you as fast as possible?
She's primarily an artist, she does sketches on commission, but you're saying that I shouldn't say the comic has bad art because that wasn't the focus?
