Waifu Skyla by MetaKnuckles Waifu Skyla by MetaKnuckles
Yep, the high-flying girl herself. I really like full-figured redheads, okay?

So yeah. Skyla's figure and outfit and hair-color make her kind of an easy choice for me. But I also think she's a neat departure (ha! because her gym is in an Airport) from the previous Flying-type Gym Leaders. Falkner and Winona are both a bit taciturn, but Skyla is the bubbly, flighty gal that I'd expect for a Flying-type trainer. And I also really like that her body type is kind of the opposite of what I'd expect for a Flying-type trainer. I guess I don't know why I think that's so neat, but I do. She's what you might call aerodynamically curvaceous.

Not much else to say about her, but she and Elesa really captured my attention, so I'm paying my respects.

She's pretty much my least favorite female in all of Gen V.

I have some good arguments for disliking her compared to others, though. I'm not a mindless basher.

Generally I think Skyla and Elesa are kinda overhyped. Have you ever seen fanwars over them at GameFAQs?

No, I haven't. 

And I never assumed you were a "mindless basher." I'm sure you do have perfectly valid reasons for disliking her.

Just like I have perfectly valid reasons to think she's awesome.

I'm not saying you assumed me to be, but I've actually received much flak from some Skyla fans, just to give you an idea. It's good to see we can accept our differing opinions.

Of course! Just because I think a character is great doesn't mean I expect everybody to!

I'm sorry to hear that you've been chewed out in the past, I think that definitely sucks and I wish everybody would be more respectful to differing opinions. But, at the same time, look at it from their point of view. Well, from mine, at least:

Simple as it may be, I've taken the time to draw a piece in tribute to a character that I really enjoy. And when somebody I don't know comes in and uses that piece as a platform to let me know how much they hate that particular character, well... That might not offend me, personally, but I think it would be understandable, if not necessarily justified, for somebody else in my position to be hurt and want to fire back at that person.

Again, it's no great slight against me if you don't like the same characters that I do, but I think comments under fan-art of that character might not be the best place to voice your distaste. Just my two cents.

Yeah, I understand what you're saying. I guess it wasn't the best place to place it on fanart of the character; your other art is pretty good, though, so I'll give it a watch. I like your simplistic works most. You know what they say: less is more!

Thanks! I'm always trying to improve and try new things and I definitely had a lot of fun doing simplistic pieces like this one.
