See this? This right here? Reactions like this to any and all criticism are a big part of why Chalo's art has stagnated and gotten wonkier over the past few years.

You know I'm starting to wonder that for all the criticism people sling at chalo here and other places
Has anyone actually ever thought about going to his streams and actually telling him the same complaints?

Why make criticisms directly to the person who actually has any amount of influence over the comic when you can sit on a completely unrelated website griping and then get all offended when people who have no influence over the comic tell you they're tired of hearing it?

Many artists will get criticisms from time to time and Chalo's been doing this for over a decade. It really depends on the type of people he's in contact with the most and who he decides to listen to.
There was this Marvel comic artist named Ryan Stegman that usually put out some amazing art and one time he started work on a new comic series and it was SHIT. It got so bad he had to say on Twitter that he didn't get hurt or anything and that he was just trying out a new style. He then went back to his usual style.
I've seen plenty of artists develop their style and then refine it in a way that got less and less appealing. And people on the Internet will make their opinions heard, even when praising something they'll be like "Well I don't like this but good job!"

Nah, more like why bother bringing it up right to him when people have already done that before and, no matter how well they worded it, been dismissed as "haters" and "trolls".
ID: 8fe1b No.12815
Maybe he dismisses you because you're a fucking asshole.

Maybe you should take a few seconds to actually read the post, so you'll notice that not only did I never say I've said a word to him directly, but also that I specifically said others have, and that no matter how well they worded their critique and no matter what tone they used, Chalo's pretty much been conditioned to view all critics as hateful trolls, just like the others who work/worked on the comic do.

That looks like either the end of a hole filled wiffle bat or a gun barrel… 0.o

So remind me, WHY did her horn break?
Like… She didn't seem to be hit there at any point, nothing actually happened to it, so…
ID: f7bc1 No.12858
I think it's maybe meant to be a cheese-shaped vibrator, indicating it's something Toots made.

To mee it looks like she's launching a wiffle ball

I'm thinking it's due to the energy burst from her "Clan Power" emerging, so it may have broken then? Not sure why else it broke…

And yet the other one didn't?

I have to be honest, they'd be so great together.

I can't be the only one noticing how sloppy Chalo's getting in the face department. You cannot look at Rachael's face in the last panel of the new page and Sarah's in that first cafe image and tell me there's nothing wrong with those.
Also Chalo continues to display why he desperately needs to actually reference his own past work, because here we see Rachael's boobs starting to get close to the head-size mark. Or is that just thanks to the magic of being attached to Miles while quitting wearing a bra?

I don't think it's "getting sloppy", I think he's deliberately trying out a new style. Furry artists seem to feel driven to change up how they do faces every so often and they can go through some truly horrifying iterations. (Example provided, luckily Max Blackrabbit didn't stick with this style for very long.)
They don't look good, though, no. He seems to be angling for something more "toon-y".

Chalo's faces have went from more anime-ish designs to almost always having a gnarled teeth look. I think he is trying for the cute 'fang' look but the way the teeth are often drawn are bulky and may give off the appearance that some are missing.
The art seems alot more 'floaty' now, I still feel circa 2011-2013 Chalo was at his peak with proportions and expressions.
If anything, it feels more 'furry' now - heavier emphasis on the animal-ish nature of characters then before which was way more anime-inspired.
The anatomy seems to be pushed to more exaggerated style but it's lost a bit of the charm and characters seem alot less cute now.

The latest Knighthood page shows he's also lost his grasp of how to keep a face's structure consistent when seen from the side.

Reminds me of how the Penny Arcade dude's art has gone to shit.
ID: 724bb No.12963
Oh wow, yeah I dont read Penny Arcade anymore - it had a good style in the mid 2000s or so but now it's gone full on tumblr style with red noses and everything.

Dialogue is a bit clunky here..
"I was convinced it wouldn't work.." doesn't have much of a lead in from him asking if she was crying. She should of stated her aw of it working first and fore most - then got choked up, would've made a more emotional impact.
Though, why Rachael is getting so emotional after figuring something out is a bit odd, it's not the first time she succeeded at a task on the farm. Wouldn't her being useful or finding her place be a more emotional reaction?
Also she was said to be a prodigy in her origin comic, so we assume as a kid it meant she was highly skilled already - spending her life on the streets, being a dedicated fighter -ect, it's not like we've seen Rachael *lose* much in the course of the comic, on the contrary - she has gotten almost nothing but windfalls save for the Minos kiss, Fight with Mora and being pared with Miles..
Also it weirdly gives Miles a backhanded compliment.
Anyways, I wonder how long until we get a sex scene between these two to top off the comic.
ID: 1b456 No.12978
Yeah, she's gradually been getting dumber for years now, honestly, and half the dialogue sounds like she's clumsily trying to tell him to fuck her or something.
