    Since this guy is a bit of a gray area, I thought it'd be a good idea to lay out some ground rules- try to keep this thread to Dobson's art or things related directly to it. So Patreon is fine, tweets related to his work are fine, and most of what he does falls under this.

    Because our focus is different than KF was and we don't want to slide down that path, though, there will be some differences. Tweets not related to his works don't fall under our purview, and violate the spirit of our 'no lolcow threads' rule. It's murky, and some content won't be under discussion, but in the end applying the rules across the whole site is going to end a lot better than confusing people with a mix of threads where they can go the traditional KF route and others where it's strictly about the content.

    I don't think this guy is that terrible. For some reasom people insist on inflating his bad reputation.

    he's certainly capable of being pretty good at art but he seems real prone to getting stuck in ruts.

    Is it okay if I show you guys the art that Tom Preston made that shows why he hates Ocarina of Time? Because the reasoning behind it is hilarious.

    But seriously, I do not get the cult behind Dobby's hatedom. His art is more mediocre than something like Sonichu, and the strawman and mouthpieces are really no different than any other webcomic "artist" *cough*VG Cats*cough*.

    Wow. Someone is bitter over OoT. That artist seems to have an unhealthy obsession over cartoons and vidya to the point where such obsession constantly manifests in stuff he draws.

    He has a pretty unhealthy obsession with a link to the past. So much that he demands to this day that link can never be blond. For some reason....

    The only time he allows link to have blond hair is when it caters to his "taste" in women

    the worst part is he's demonstrated several times he can do better than chinless ball heads.

    oh and there was this one time where supposedly someone at a con mistook him for the guy that does 'sucks to be weegee', and dobbers started copying the sucks to be weegee guy for a while. not sure why he'd do that.

    Preston also has a habit of recycling his older works into his latest ones, like the "STOP WITH THIS SEXIST CRAP" pieces.

    Link's blonde/brown hair is to Tom Preston what "blarms" are to Chris and it amuses me so.

    I remember back on KF I speculated that "sexist crap" is Dobbish for "grownup stuff."

    Or what Mario not being from Brooklyn is to Bob Chipman. The similarities between those two tubs of lard keep piling up.

    That mouth in the final panel is clearly Dobson's character revealing that it was really The Thing.

    His face on the last panel screams ''hahaha, look at how quirky and random I am!"
