Actually, I like your art.i was already used to the fact that the anipoke fandom lacks tact, but i must say that i was somewhat uncomfortable reading opinions about "uncanny valley" or "ash's creepy smile lol". this is fanart, you know, unofficial art from a non-professional artist, not an animation director of an OLM studio, whose job is to keep the proportions in check. next time keep in mind that the art you are discussing on the internet was drawn by "someone" and there is always a chance that this "someone" reads the same forum as you. but thank you for your perhaps too honest review of my work
My only feedback is that Ash's scleras were a bit too round and big so the eyes looked off. Also, I think if the idea was emulate earlier seasons then Goh didn't really need those styled eyeslashes (you know, the ones that made people assume he was a girl back when he was revealed). I dunno, I feel like if Goh was on XY, he'd follow the formatting used for Ash's and Clemont's eyes. Or maybe even a more "normal" version of Sawyer's.
Other than that, I like the art. Ash's irises were a nice blend of the original look with the more detailed work from the BW-ownards era. I like you keep the consistence with what the XY design had done and made his cheek birthmarks seem smaller. The XY art kind of phased them out by significantly shrinking them. Also, I'm quite sure I remember a random frame where Ash was missing them. Then, SM randomly decided to make them proeminent again by enlarging them to the point of looking like some weird scars. Either way,playing with the idea here was a nice attention to detail. The coloring of Goh's hair and irises was good as well.
