This is one of those topics that is just always going to be debated upon. I make very complex models because what I want out if this mod is to have Pokemon in my minecraft game, not necessarily minecraft-themed Pokemon. When I model I am trying to stay true to the artwork despite using only cubes. It's a big challenge, but I love that, because with every model I make I push myself to become better, learn new techniques, and produce something I am truly proud of.
Also, karrybird hasn't once said (that I can remember) that she doesn't like my models or a complex modeling style, just that she prefers to model in her own style. And that's fine, in the end you should work within your own style and let people decide the models they like best. But definitely push yourself in either modeling or texturing, or both if possible. You can definitely have a simple modeling style work, but you have to want the simplicity to be well thought out and not just an excuse for laziness. Karry's models are simple, but they're also intelligently built. My suggestion with this model is to pay special attention to proportions, really think about how to use as few blocks as you can, and then knock out an amazing texture because that's something you can do with simple models. I'll try to give more specific feedback when I can get to an actual computer and not just my phone. Good job so far.
