a daily drawing by request from Tumblr. I like the 90's aesthetics.

To my mind this is the definitive depiction of Kon-El, albeit drawn from references to those days when he didn't actually HAVE a name beyond 'Superboy' poor fellow.

Then why comment? If it's not constructive, only based on your personal preferences, then you wasted your time typing that message, and even more so everyone else's who is now subjected to view it.

Excuse you, high horse, but the artist did not create this version of Superboy, DC did, along with many other versions, so I am not making a comment against the artist or his work in any way. I am simply stating that this is my least favorite version of Superboy that DC has come out with, which is me stating my own, un-harmful, personal opinion. Which, last time I checked, is a perfectly acceptable comment to make. How about you not subject all of us to your fat headed judgments

Saying your hate the subject matter of an artist is an insult to them when they put time and effort into making a piece, not least of all when their comment on it mentions they personally like something. You're not only insulting their work, but their tastes, and it's entirely unnecessary.

Perhaps if your original comment had gone into detail to put it into context then it wouldn't be as bad, but even then it was needlessly and excessively harsh. There's a difference between saying "I personally don't like this version" and saying what you did, even using the word "hate". If you make a comment like you did with such implications and insults then how can you expect people to not judge you based on it?

You could try being less of a baby and save the ranting for the people who are actually offending people personally. If my comment is truly wrong or in any way goes against DA rules, then by all means report it. See if it gets taken down and then come talk to me.

Might want to reread my post since I pointed out you ARE offending people on a personal level. How would you feel if someone came to a piece of your work and said "ugh, gross, i hate this [insert content of picture here]"? If you really wouldn't at least be peeved by the blunt and outright disrespectful nature of the comment, then honestly, you'd either be lying or that really says something about you.

It didn't break the rules (the fact you think something has to break the rules to be considered "wrong" (which I never said it was, by the way - again, might want to pay attention to what you're reading, I said it was uncalled for)), it was extremely RUDE. The fact you can't even see the way your original post would be interpreted by people in that way already makes you a lost cause, I suppose. And calling me a baby for pointing out your boorish behaviour just shows how immature you are yourself.

seriously guy, enough. It's an opinion about a specific version of a character. you don't have to agree with it

... You think my problem is that you don't like this version of Superboy? REALLY? You really haven't read a word I've said, have you?

AGAIN, MY PROBLEM *ISN'T* THAT YOU DON'T LIKE THE CHARACTER'S DESIGN, it's that your comment on this artist's work was RUDE and offensive (complaining about the content of a piece of work someone has taken the time and effort to make is like saying "why did you even bother?").

Honestly, I'm not surprised that you lack the capability to just admit what you did was rude, apologise and move on, because to even make that comment to begin with says a lot about what type of person you are. But to lack even the basic understanding of WHY I disagreed with it, even when I've CLEARLY STATED it in EVERY comment I've made...? I don't even know how you did it!

You know what, I'm done. If you honestly don't even get WHY I think your comment was horrible - let alone understand the meaning behind my actual reason - then either you literally don't have the necessarily comprehension skills to reason with or you're a troll. I'm leaning in the direction of the latter, because it leaves me with more faith in humanity than you truly being THAT stupid.

Just in case you failed to understand this comment as you did every. Single. One. That I've made so far, then here's the gist: It's fine to not like the design of this version of Superboy. It's NOT fine to make a rude comment insulting the author of a piece.

If you don't understand that, then drop it, because I simply cannot make it any simpler. However, if you really can't resist to continue arguing about something I never even said I disagreed with, please just send me a note and stop ruining this artist's comment section with your inability to actually read something before replying.
