You can say that, but it isn't helpful to me. Nothing will fit my characters, that is the point. It can't be forced. Pictures are his interest, not mine. Sorry the way I express my experience puts you off. I expected a lot of understanding on this one. But you're entitled to your take. Perhaps you are right, in that I expressed myself poorly. I'll accept that. If he's upset with me, clearly I didn't meet his emotional needs. He also didn't consider mine.Maybe you can't be forced to be excited, but you still read like you're being kind of a dick about it. Maybe he's overreacting a bit too, but "jarring and abstract in a bad way"? Really?!? The art your friend picked may not fit your conception of your character, but then find some that does. Find the time to find something that will suffice even if it's not perfect - it will help you communicate if nothing else.
