Poor Ideas for cross-overs Let's see them.

Also, should I stop doing them?

I'm honestly surprised GW2 and Skrillex fans haven't flipped their lids yet over it.

I've only heard a few Skrillex songs and I've never played guild wars so the joke is a bit lost on me.

I'm not sure if OCs meeting really counts. The Willy Wonka one might but,- huh.

Who would win? Why am I sitting there drinking tea while my two favorite characters duke it out? Because tea is my favorite. WHO COULD HAVE PREDICTED THIS MADNESS?!

Well he will be back again someday, but there has got to be SOME way to kill him. I mean stake through the heart, silver bullet, or is your only hope to melt him and get ready for when he regenerates in a year?

Jimmy looks like such a bitch, haha. Which is good, because he totally is one sometimes.

I like how they all turned out though! And I think it's adorable that Sheen's in Ravenclaw haha.

Wow, That could work. But the deviation in style from Jimmy Neutron makes it unrecognizable. Although you did a very nice job, I don't think it's really a success as a crossover piece.

It's really not possible to replicate the style, seeing as it's 3-D computer generated.

Not true, I've seen plenty of people who have. It's just... A lot more cartoony than the one you used.

I've always thought 2-D versions of highly stylized 3-D cartoons like JN just look...goofy. I prefer reinterpreting them in other styles. Especially when style was established as something "fluid" within the worlds of nicktoons (during the Jimmy-Timmy crossovers, for example, the characters looked totally different - even changing eye color - when they went into the Fairly Oddparents universe). As such, I felt comfortable with the idea that style change is A-OK for JN crossovers.

Plus, honestly, style does not character make. I've seen Danny Phantom drawn in an anime style, and Velma from Scooby-Doo drawn in photo-realism, and Naruto drawn as a Western-style cartoon...it doesn't diminish or take away from their personality at all. Danny is still Danny, Velma Still Velma, Naruto still Naruto, even if they are not set down in their "native" style. Demanding that all characters be depicted the same way they were in the source material is just...restrictive. Loosen up! Draw some random crap any way you want to draw it! It's all in good fun. :D

I see your point, but the difference between Scooby Doo or Danny Phantom being do in a different style is the Wardrobe and hair that are integral to the character design. I know that you where going for a more realistic hair but in doing so, with the change in costume, they no longer resemble the original characters in any recognizable way without the labels you put under them. While they are nice pieces, and don't get me wrong, they are. They don't hold up as a crossover piece themselves.

Um...but, doesn't a crossover piece involve putting them in different clothes, perhaps different hairstyles as well?

Jimmy's appearance is quite different, and I can definitely recognize your critique as far as he is concerned. But I'd recognize the Cindy and Libby and Carl portraits anywhere. You're the only person who has had trouble seeing the resemblance. Everyone else got it right away.

Maybe it's just because most of the people who commented are JN fans, so they're more sensitized to the characters' appearances and have seen then drawn in so many different ways that they are more adept at recognizing them re-interpreted.

No, it's because you labeled them. Honestly without the labels and tags I'd just assume they where Harry Potter OC's. Hair style and clothing are the most important aspects of character design in most cases. Look, I'm not saying it's bad I'm just saying it's not recognizable as a crossover work as is without the labels.
