I usually like manga-styled stuff better art-wise, but there are A LOT of comics out there that turn my head even though they aren't manga. I suppose as long as the art is good it doesn't matter what kind of art it is. I do have a tendency of being turned off the realistic stuff though - it usually ends up looking weird, even if drawn really well.
Pretty characters? Exaggerated features?
I like characters that can be told apart from each other or have interesting personalities. Any time I see another one of those optimistic protagonists I stop reading. Like, right away. I'm sick of Narutos and Ash Ketchums and all the rest of those idiots.
Hand-drawn art? Or computerized?
Either. Doesn't matter to me. I have a soft spot for hand-drawn things, but it rarely ever makes a difference.
How much does the art matter? If the story's good the art doesn't matter or should a good story be made better with top art? Does the genre change you standards for art?
I do kind of have a standard to art... If it's sprites, or just REALLY BAD, then I probably won't read it. So long as I can make out emotions, characters, backgrounds, and all the other necessities without spending 5 minutes looking at something I could have done better when I was 10, then I'll look at it. Once that test has been passed, I have to be grabbed by the story within 5-10 pages, usually.If I can't see anything happening, I give up, write it down, and make sure I never click it again. Story is VERY important - and that's what judges whether or not I'll read. I haven't seen too much art here that fails to when I was 10, so it isn't as much of an issue.
Who are your favorite artists? heck what are your favorite comics? (and has the art anything to do with it?)
You don't need to answer these questions just some kind of summary of how you think of art is fine, as an artist or fan.
Did anyway. XD
