    Who knew the moral high ground was populated by a fat web, barely considerable artist who has a penchant for Twitter bubbles?

    Is he cross-eyed? His stare is really unsettling.

    At least his career is mostly dead. You know your career is shit when someone searches for your name and content created by "Haters" come up, or is even the number one entry. In particular, four of my comics come up when you do an image search for "Tom Preston", to say nothing about other parody/hate comics by others.

    2018-02-08_15-23-32.

    I really should do some statistics on Dobson's search results...

    Sometimes I really wondered if he even had a career to begin with.

    Whatever potential he had is down the drain.

    Though I'd argue it was down the drain back when he fucked up that publishing deal opportunity. I forgot the full story, however... hey @endsenten, do you happen to have more info?

    Even if we ignore your comics, there's still 1/3 of search results that are "hate art". :D

    At some point he was the king of dA. It's not much, but he still had an audience and a small success. Now he has lost even taht.

    As for career, I'm talking about in a professional extent. Anyone can be an extremely popular on dA.

    The last time he did something professional was working on the Brentalfloss webcomic, and that was like a couple of years ago. Could even say he didn't do a good job at it.

    Well, he sells stuff at comiccon. It's kinda sorta professional. I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same old comics he drew ages ago, like Alex and Formera.

    It's probably that. Even then, selling the same old comics for years is not really helping. People recognize him for his SYAC comics, not those other comics he does.

    I'd be surprised if he even did that considering his traumatic ptsd inducing experience.

    Even if you search for SYAC in google image, there's "hate" art in the first page. Poor Dobby :(

    I can't stop looking at Lady Flame's face. It's probably the worst part of the whole animation. But outside of that, it is quite good compared to Dobson's usual stuff. It's probably the best stuff he published in years.

    Makes me thing about how his old animations weren't bad either. Maybe he's still able to pull out some decent shit if he keeps working on animations instead of fanart.

    Honestly, this is shitty pixelart and I dislike it even more than his comics. It's kind of insulting.
    • Unappealing style, it's that type of subpar style you can see from amataur pixel artists or seen in some Dorkly animations. It's forgivable for them at least, as they're mainly animating, not making sprites.
    • Too many jagged lines, jagged pixels can be a bit of a no-no to pixel art. Incidentally, that's often the consequence of using the line tool too many times, which evidently can be seen. Actually, shape tools shouldn't be used too many times when making sprites, or it would lead into somewhat hideous results.
    • Dull lifeless shading and coloring. Bad palette choices (too much brown). In fact shading seems to be missing for Lady Flame's sprite, but the other two have it? I'm also bothered how he uses pitch black for coloring things that are black--nearly lacking shading, which doesn't sit that well for me.
    • More animations, please. It just looks lifeless, even though I see it's supposed to be an RPG battle scene.
    While it's nice that Dobson did something different for once, it's still assed. Which shouldn't be surprising, given how Dobson fucks up with well... everything.

    Because of it's shittiness, have some random sprites I did years ago.
    And honestly while I'm probably not that great at pixel art, it's hella more pleasing to eyes compared to that crap Dobson just made.
