Kao

I think I was one of the few who expected this change. A few months ago I looked into Pixton for school (I was bored) and saw new characters on the preview (https://www.pixton.com/uk/schools/license/buy if anyone is interested to see them)

But I will be the first to say that I really don't like the new style. I'm sorry, because I can only imagine the work that is getting put into the new characters, the styling and coding, but it's simply the way I feel.

The change is 2010 was an elevation of the already existing characters, giving them real eyes and noses, which was something authors were missing. However, this is just a total change of style of what Pixton is and I think I speak for many when I say that we were not missing a new look. The new style is way too cartoon-ish, and as many people have already mentioned in the comments, the current style has the perfect line between realism and cartoon. And through purple mode, we're all able to make our characters more realistic and more cartoon-ish.

I think some people will like this style very much and enjoy it. I also think it will give more life to Pixton, as many will try out the new feature. But I, like many others, hope that this is simply an option and not something that will be forced upon us.

Fox

I can only agree with Kao. I've been on Pixton for almost 10 years and am quite particular about cartoon styles, I'm just hoping the community will be heard in saying we want to have a choice with the old style, as many of us have series and props we've spent hours of work on :(

Percy Epsilon

Percy Epsilon il y a 2 années de Canada

I must say I also agree with this Kao's comment. As much as change is great and refreshing to introduce every once in a while, this one seems to be redirecting Pixton's style into a completely new direction and, in my humble opinion, basically changing the unique vibe and look Pixton's always been known for.


As Kao mentioned, the addition of features is always a 'reasonable' change, as had been done throughout the years, whereas this -the altering of Pixton's graphic design- is legit a different ball game. It's changing the core of how our comics are being presented. Although some users may not mind working with the new design, for some of us who've been on here for a while, the way that Pixton's comics are -both figuratively and literally speaking- 'DRAWN' is what DEFINES this site and makes it different to any other comic-making platform experience. It's something I think we've grown to love and work with. In fact, we've learnt to incorporate our own ways to enhance the style definition, which is essentially the fun part of making comics! It'd be a shame for that excitement to be taken away. I also think it's fair to mention that it might be a bit detrimental to the flow of thousands of stories and projects that've been created on here and depend on the current style, especially for those of us that are particular with the balance between cartoon and realism styles.


For this reason, I kind of don't see why it should be changed. And if this option MUST be introduced, I really hope its not the only one we've got when it comes to creating comics.

Chase Hunter

Like Kao and Perce mentioned above as well as others in a few comments here, I'm really concerned 'bout having the old version still available. This new version looks great, and change is always a good sign but personally, I think it limits us users to the one thing we love 'bout Pixton...creativity.

The current style encourages authors to use their imaginations and experiment with different props and come up with their unique comic styles. I love how we can distinguish authors' works from how they use props and shapes creating unique artworks. I feel with the new version, we will no longer have that same opportunity to build ourselves as artists and learn from experimenting. The style we have now is the perfect base for us to build on and create personalized characters and scenes.

The new version is a ready-made characters that simply needs to be placed in a panel and published...Again, this is taking away the one thing that made Pixton unique from any other comic making platform. We don't exactly learn and develop from being spoon-fed (which is basically almost what the new version is offering) We hope for at least an option of having our current version as well, just so that our hours and hard work we put into prop making and learning from trying over the years doesn't all go to nothing.

I have to agree with all these comments.. I feel bad saying I don't really like it since, there is a lot of work being put into the new version. But, it will make us loose the current charm and appeal of our pixton right now.
With the current version, we can make ours look more cartoonish like the new one, or we can leave them realistic. With the new version, it looks like we'll only have the cartoony option.. And there are authors, like myself, that like the nonshaded affect in some places, while liking to do their OWN shading in other places. Making them pre-shaded will make it harder for certain users to pull off their style. I've liked when we get some new hair+clothing options, but I've never wanted a whole new style. And I want it even less now. If this style is optional, it will also let authors have more diverse types of comics. From the current without shading, the current with shading, and the new. It also looks like with this new style, it will basically take away a lot of our creativity, it will be harder to use props and our own effects in our comics. I'd suggest making the new style an option, and adding some new hair and clothing options for the current one. #Makeitoptional

You all know me as a controversial, realistic author, and some of you know me to despise this idea of being "cute", and I also agree that this will drastically throw many of my ideas out the window, should they go ahead with this new change, all while making it mandatory. New ideas are fun, but not when they trample on ideas that can still be used.

I’ve always looked forward to Pixtons updates, the new designs are great but I have a slight concern about the new designed characters’ faces. I prefer the old one, it really looks realistic compared to this new version. I hope there will be an option to choose between the new characters and old ones. And that the old ones will still be available :’(

I really like the new design but I agree with the others in that I hope the old versions are still available because they allow for a lot of creativity when it comes to creating clothing, hair, and just regular props. Also the faces have always been a nice middle between reality and cartoon and I hope those stay the same.

After seeing the comments below: I now agree to most of you. The old one we currently have is real looking and cartoon mixed together, perfectly made. Not only I made comics and artwork here, I’ve been making stop motion videos with the old one as I have some in progress here too. So I’d suggest to please make the new design optional for us.

MagnificentRay

Looks great!

One thing though, Is this going to replace all of the old characters with the new style or is it going to be optional like with the red mode?
I have made a lot of characters with props like space helmets and things and I'm a little worried about if old props I've made will work with the new style of characters.
Or if I wanted to change an old comic without updating it.

Is this coming in with options in red mode?
If so then it looks great and I'm very exited to see where it will go!

I 100% agree with my fellow authors on the change. And I also would like to add that in my opinion this new style will be great for beginners, But for people like me who have been here for a longer time and rely heavily on using props and using our creativity on the new style, I think it will be quite a downfal.

Also, I notice that the faces look more cartoonish. Will there be options to make them look a little bit more realistic? I feel like the current faces have a pretty good balance between both. Maybe, this is is just the tip of the iceberg compared to the rest that's coming. *shugs*

Hi Louis, I'm thrilled to hear you're launching a new version.
I recently took a class in drawing / writing graphic novels, and Pixton has enabled me to make a 4 page and a 6 page comic with little to no artistic training. My main source of frustration is a lack of costume choices, and colors. I recently wrote a "fairy tale" style comic, and had to use flared pants in place of a Victorian style skirt. A good place to start with clothing styles is Pinterest.
I'd also be happy to share my cartoons with you offline.
And yes, I would love to see previews od new stuff.

I wanna see some previews but I just want my characters, props and backgrounds and all my comics and creations to stay the same because it means a lot to me and helps me breathe when I'm lonely and I'm thinking about doing comics about a church and actors doing plays books and comics to reach out to lonely people and people with low self esteem to help them breath from whatever life or people throw at them. So I just wanna make sure the new version is easy and still believe in any good thing you do but I just wish everything I created stays the same.

I for one am NOT in favor of this new design, and I feel I have the right to be blunt about the issue, since I am pulling finances for a premium membership.
---
As a prime example for this argument...Everyone knows me as a controversial, down-to-earth author, and in order for my source material to work, I need a dose of realism in my comics. A break away from the cartoon, anime-style faces we're all aware of. I'm sure you will also remember me filing complaints with the team about my characters glitching. They were suddenly being reverted to a "cute" outline as I was trying to make my comics with the "regular" setting. Well, this new style will take "cute" to a whole other level, and many realistic artists are not in favor of sacrificing dramatic effects. A new version is all well and good, believe me when I say it is fine. But only as long as we're not all forced to go into this cookie cutter cuteness, of which you, and the rest of the community, know that I despise with a burning passion. Yet I am not the only one who feels this way, so if you are thinking of making this mandatory, PLEASE reconsider. I'll let you ponder on that, which is my soliloquy.

Imo, the current pixton style is amazing, doesn't need any work, it's the perfect mix of cartoon, and realism. I think a new style would just ruin it. Not hating, it's a fun idea, it's just that pixton is perfect the way it is now.
