Oh crazy anons, obsessing over the opinion of a girl who exists only in fiction. Really? Really? That's where you're getting your ideas of beauty from? The cartoon is clearly meant to show the bond between artist and creation, father and daughter, even to an extent (if you want to get religous about it) possibly god and mankind. It's so not focusing on the hairstyle. Sheesh, touchy much ;)
I somewhat agree that the reaction can be hard to understand coming from my perspective, but I definitely think it’s important to listen. The trick is to find out how to listen to a response, and see if it’s possible to apply a fix while maintaining artistic integrity.
Some people are touchy, but I’ve been fine so far. No one’s sent me terrible hate mail yet, so the critique has hardly been pointed at me or trying to hurt me. It’s mostly people expressing disappointment, or expressing how the statement confused them. These are things that are okay to touch up now and then, as long as you maintain your own integrity.
