It's funny - my generation of creators really used to exaggerate figures in the late 80s and early 90s. These days it seems like people don't like it as much - I'm getting a bit of flack for it on my profile! techgnotic.deviantart.com/jour… I think I'm going to have to tone it down for the dA audience!
I saw that post, I can't seem to find the specific examples, but some people were being downright rude. I, of course checked one of their galleries to compare and found their figures quite plain and lacking personality.
