This is exactly the kind of shit I'm into. It's rare for me to find a movie or television show that I feel wholly connected to, but this... man, I hope my project winds up catching half the edginess and cool you have going on here. I seriously love this pic and I seriously think you have one of the best styles I have yet to behold here on DA.
ok sry but i think all fan arts of these troll people aliens whatever are awesome...but i just started reading the homestuck comic and i'm really wondering why people think this is so cool, the original web comic is drawn so shitty that it's not even worth the strange story....could you explain me why people like this comic so much?
It may not be drawn with the best fidelity ( graphical detail ), but the characters are all very iconic ( memorable, recognizable, likable ). In fact the farther into the story you go, the more visual styles you'll see the characters drawn in ( One is called hero mode by the fanbase ). But no matter how they're drawn or how well they're drawn, they're still iconic.
Also, the beginning of the webcomic was focused on the world mechanics. Later, with the introduction of the trolls ( the aliens ) its an exploration of what its like being kids on the internet. The trolls are meant to represent specific parts of internet culture, and that makes their character memorable and likable. The plot also moves like a parabola, starting of slowly then shooting off quickly.
And without getting spoilery, the story's mythos is awesome and inspires the imagination. At least for me. :3 Hopefully that sheds some light as to why it's as popular as it is.

Oh my gosh, this is like litterally one of the best Homestuck fanarts I have ever seen. Seriously. I can't stop looking at it. You got every single character on here 100% right with the pose, the expression, their faces, and the outfits. Karkat you have no shoes But do you know what pisses me off? I can't find anything. Usually, I can see what the artist needs to work on with their piece. But honestly, I can't find a single flaw or error with this. It's incredible. This'll probably mean just as much as any of the other comments on here, but I want you to know how perfect this came out. I mean it. Excellent job. ♥
I've been staring at this picture with a friend for ten minutes, finding something new in it each glance. It's perfection, that's all I can honestly say. You made Kanaya sexy in that skirt and Karkat looks like he own the place in his blood chair. I want Vriska's boots damn it, they are hot.
Okay, seriously, why does this image make me think of KHR? I mean, Karkat looks like Xanxas sitting in that torn up throne with no shoes.
(Gonna go on a small rant just to get it out of my system.. >< Karkat - Xanxas, Terezi - Squalo, Vriska - Belphegor, Sollux - Levi A Than, Eridan - Lussuria, Kanaya - Uncursed Viper, Tavros - Tsuna, Gamzee - Yamamoto, Equius - Gokudera, Nepeta - Lambo(?), Feferi - Chrome, Aradia - Hibari.)
Either way, this image is totally bonkers-awesome.
