I don’t see anything wrong with them. Some say lack of creative space, or artistic direction. It personally doesn’t matter to me, as long as i can work with it, it’s all good. Honestly, I’d rather see a well done team av (kyosuke87, viciousslash, come to mind… ), rather than a trend-whored half-assed av (after the foshizzle dynasty… ).
to me it was because team avs are, and were a common occurence. ultimately, blocking creativity has nothing to do with it, because you can make anything creative and original. i just generally stray away from the stuff everyone else works with. that’s all.
me being creative and original is one of my only advantages around here(in reference to those here, including myself, with experience).
i was seeing lots of sprite avs, so i went to human avs. then i was seeing lots of human avs, then i went to objects, animals, and creatures. i like to “1-up” or move before everyone else does.
