you are probably only person I know that drew lazymuffin with white hair. for some reason it looks good on him.
what is with only one candle on lazymuffin but thousand candle on Kai? I would have done the vise versa since lazymuffin having the a birthday and all. but that is my opinion.
very good pencil artwork. the pencil lines are much more smooth looking than the ones I have seen from you in the past deviations. the lines are more bold. it is nicer to look at because the figures are more defined. good shadings.
I was sure you were talking about lazymuffin because I ended sentence talking about lazymuffin. I opologize
I think people like Kai for the humor. or the fact that he is crazy. not sure. there are one of these things when an image convey sadness or anger, some people find them enjoyable because the image express anger for them by looking. it can relate to people listening to really emo or angry music. Although Kai is not killling people while being really angry but he seems to torture those two tortured him first. so there is a bit of possible relation with the viewer. also it is a possible fantasy of someone to be just be fuckcrazy and spread blood all over the place without getting into trouble.
it is not only that character is just COOL. from how I have noticed, people find connection or visualized fanytasy in a "character" and able to be interested in him, her, or it. even though your flash animations might seem like mere entertainment, you still have a your character, Kai, in THERE. an 18 year old "dumbass" male who do things that are inhuman, either morbid or humorous.
I am done. sorry for analyzing your character too much. I know I might be wrong. you seems to have too much too share with your character so I probably do not know the half the thing about him.
