Tried to give them a critique explaining their literal ms paint palettes are terrible and that their “re designs” are overly detailed eyesores with bad anatomy but they just whined and made more terrible re designs out of spite lol (there’s way worse one’s on their blog but this is a fair contender)
Again there’s a lot of problems with the way tumblr tends to headcanon stuff like… eventually when you get to this point where aside from the bodyshapes the characters are basically completely different in design, you might as well just make them into new characters. It’s a decent method for creating OCs I understand as well - at least that’s what’s going around the tutorial circuit of tumblr at the moment.
But if the artist is trying to pass these as redesigns of the SU main group then like… the original is superior. These seem too busy and the colour schemes while being acceptable for each character on their own, are not nice to look at together as a group like the original does. If you’re designing characters that 75% of the time appear as a group THEY NEED TO LOOK NICE AS A GROUP. Otherwise you’ve kinda failed in character design.
