I think both artist are needed at this point, it shouldn't matter who's art is better. They both are staples for the comic and it makes it truly interesting to guess who's is next. Honestly, both art styles are good, both have flaws, both deserve better then complains from crybaby's.
First Meta and now Jellah?
What the heck?! Seriously, you rock too much to let that get to you. Heck you rock so much I had to tell Meta his/her art doesn't suck. And now I have to say your art doesn't suck either.
Is there like some Smackjeeves author art critcal mass that prevents two authors with great art from realising that neither of the art styles suck?
Sure some poeple may like Meta's art better than yours, but there's just as many that think the reverse. And of those who think Meta's is better, I'm sure most of them respect the heck out of the quality of your art. It end up being one of those hugely heated discussions, because both parties are too great to compare well.
Heck you kick Meta's ass in some areas (Like cuddly monsters.) No offense Meta.
MEEP GOD's absolutely right though. You two deserve better.
Anyways, You did give a respectible first reason though, so I can respect your decision even if the hoards of fans saying "NOOOOOO DON'T GO!" don't end up swaying you.
Just know your art rocks.
Also... if I'm reading the comments in the archive correctly... I think there was only one snide comment and one that wasn't intended as such...
Haha, no offense taken TD, because I completely agree with you. We both have our strengths and weaknesses, so it's completely uncalled for to be judged against each other. Plus, Jelleh's art helps me strive to better my own.
I wish people had enough tact to not insult people trying their hardest. Jelleh isn't doing this for anything but out of the kindness of his own heart, yet people can't appreciate it. It make me sick... they say you can't hurt people's feelings over the internet due to the general anomininity (eh, that's not really a word), but that is bullshit. Those who think they are talking to nothing but robots online are ignorant.
Jelleh, I am so sorry this happened to you, and I can't help but feel I am somewhat responsible... do whatever you think is right for yourself, please. Thank you so much for your run here, for making getting this far possible. Your work will not be forgotten by me, or any other fan of this comic.
It's really sad that some people like to be pricks, and Puppet deserves a roundhouse kick up the ass by Chuck Norris. I liked both art styles, and although I don't want you to leave, I think it's a respectable decision. You don't deserve some douche mouthing off about you. But I would ignore him, because let's face it, he is a coward because he did it as a guest comment to run away afterwards. I hope to see more of yuor work in the future, whatever comic it is in.
BAN THE COMPARERS AND BANISH THEM TO A DUNGEON IN THE FAR REACHES OF THE KINGDOM!
Like everybody else already said, you can't really compare your types of art and say one is better than the other. You both have different styles, and they're both very professionalish-looking.
But, yeah, I can understand that you're completely busy with your other comics, since you have so many and you update them so frequently. Time is a cartoonist's biggest enemy. We must all work together to DESTROY IT.
Your work here was great while it lasted, it's too bad you have to leave so soon.
Oh, dear. I honestly wasn't looking for that much response, or anything. I'm not so bothered by the lack of enthusiasm as I just have better things to do.
I had to do something when updating came to be a drag. However, I'm glad some people kinda get where I'm coming from. Maybe when my schedule clears up, I could make room for it, but it's just not worth it anymore.
VIVA LA KIRBY
I like Kirby of the Stars in general, though I admit, at first when I saw a different art style I was slightly annoyed (I was just used to the other one thats all).
But I still loved the art, I understood that the usual artist could not update all the time.
But I hope the comic does not die, that would be a sin and a shame.
Man, you guys are amazing.. both of you, Meta and Jelly ~ I respect and admire BOTH of your styles ~ and you both work(ed) really well on this comic to this point.. it bites that some idiots think it's amusing to shoot down some artists' work... makes me wonder if they EVEN draw, write or do anything...I suspect not.
I'm sorry you're leaving Jelly, and I respect your choice to leave... and I loved the last panel with De3...that's an epic way to leave ;D
Meta, I'll still be here to admire your art and to see where this story is going...
DAMN!!!! WHY MUST YOU GO?!? WHO'S BEEN STUPID ENOUGH TO SAY YOUR ART STYLE SUCKS?!??
Well, I'm sad now. :( I don't care who's drawing the comic, as long as it's being drawn. I think you both have cute art styles that put mine to shame. I wish you wouldn't let the haters get to you, I'm pretty sure the fans outnumber them eight billion to one.
Does this mean that KOTS id finished?
Or does this mean that Meta's back full-time? You 2 could've worked together on pages: Meta takes care od areas where Jelleh had problems, and visa-versa (IE: Le Jelleh can draw Meta's monsters for her.) I just hope SOMEONE takes the job, soon! ^n^
I don't want KotS to die, so I think from here on, for now, I will be doing my best to keep the project afloat by myself. I have had a few people requesting to take over the artist job, but I'm still thinking about it.
cyber douch puppet stikes again
hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!You big bunch of pathetic slackers are way too sensitive and quitting over the comment of one dumbass you have no self esteem and shouldn't be putting your art out but I still hold strong to my opinion that Meta is far better than you.
Well I suppose it would be hard to self esteem if someone kept dissing you for no apparent reason. I don't know if you think you can just insult someone for their drawing style puppet. When everyone has there own unique style. I think its interesting and cool to see other peoples characters drawn in different styles. So whatever you do next Jelleh I hope people appreciate you more.
Sorry but i have no life. The only thing i care about is kirby of the stars and nothing else. While i wont be changing my opinion about jellah, i have nothing better to do than than to flame artist who have better skills than me.
That's right. I'd like to see you do a better job drawing this, asshole.
Here's some news for you, dickwad: I DO have a life.
I work forty hours a week like a goddamn slave, and the time I have in between, I use to draw comics like this for pieces of shit like you.
Now, I can be the worst artist on the planet, but you have NO fucking right to treat ANYone who spends their valuable time on entertaining you like this. Show some goddamn grace and appreciation, or get the fuck out.
If you really DID like this comic, you would take the good with the bad, and be fucking mature about it, because you just ruined it for everyone.
@ puppet (Guest): I think you're no guest. A guest is (according to my dictionary) someone honored and welcomed by the host. In this case, you're not exactly acting worthy of being welcomed by anyone here on KOTS.
Like I said before, both Jelly and Meta have their own styles, and both have worked hard on this comic, and it's kind of disrepectful to both of them that someone like you disses their work, as the story is Meta's (she wrote the story, remember?), and I think Jelly did a great job interpreting it.
As for Jelly's life.. man, that's tough, working 40 hours a week.. and I'm sure the rest of us have lives too.. and we all enjoy KOTS too.
you can't stop the true cyber douche
jelleh you are a retard if you think that dumbass posting as me on top of you at 6:20 is me! I mean It doesn't even have the cyber douche signiture. It was just some dumbass trying to make you feel better posting as me saying I have no life, when in reality, I've got more life then you, and that ain't sayin much.
It's also fuckin hilarious that one internet asshole can put you on hiatus for MONTHS! Congrats faggots :)
