What?? No offense, but it sounds like you've done some gift art to the wrong people. XD I'm always grateful to receive gift art even if something is a bit off. It's the thought and effort that counts and I just chalk it up to this person's interpretation of my character. You got the color of his eyes perfect, I might add. ^^
Oh yeah, I LOVE getting gift art myself, I would never nitpick if someone put time and effort in. Some people just have entitlement issues, I guess. Hell, I can barely draw my own characters consistently myself.
