SYAC - Renaissance Trolling by TomPreston SYAC - Renaissance Trolling by TomPreston
Read the next episode of “So, You’re A Cartoonist?” here: [link]

***

I just thought this was a funny idea. What if people in the renaissance had the internet and how would the "famous" artists deal with all the hate and flame people had over their artwork?

As a bit of an inside joke, these ugly looking people are actually variations on real drawings by Leonardo...

U Jelly = You Jealous for those of you who don't know the internet lingo.

Also: I am NOT trying to compare myself to Leonardo da Vinci.

Masters, you trolls! XD I love the face of DaVinci - it is the "I'm awesome" smile, which you are so good at drawing! ^^
Thank you for your hard work! <^-^>

When Michelangelo was a student, he offended another student with his crit, and the guy got up and punched him, breaking his nose!
No need for computers in those days.
Also Leo basically discovered more about human anatomy than medical scholars at the time

Leonardo was a severely overrated, undertalented homosexual hack, kinda like the Rob Liefeld of the Renaissance.  Your argument is invalid.

Comparing Liefeld anatomy drawings to Leonardo's? You gotta be kidding.

If you are not trying to compare yourself through Leonardo, you are clearly projecting.
I really think no one would be writing negatively about Da Vinci's art because at the time his peers enjoyed his art.
He study anatomy extensively, which was crucial since humanism was on the rise during this time which is when figure drawing began being practiced.
