Lately I've been having this shitty cycle of having something to draw and then an immediate artblock right after. This cycle has been going on for a month or so and I'm getting rather tired of it. I don't want art to seem like a chore, I don't want to begrudge the things I have to work on.


So I'm thinking I need a little bit of change. I need different things to listen to or look at or WHATEVER.
So show me the music you guys listen to! Send me some links to your favourite songs or bands, or maybe just a favourite video, it would be greatly appreciated! And don't be shy! There's no need to be shy, BECAUSE I WON'T JUDGE YOU FOR WHATEVER YOU LIKE TO LISTEN TO!

Critiques

recently I participated in this poll that was deviantart-wide and it was about how people take critiques, and I couldn't believe what some people were saying in the comments section. The actual poll didn't bother me, whatever people voted for I'll take their word for it but the comments were just ridiculous. I saw a common trend that people will only accept critiques from artists that are better than them. Well that doesn't seem like a big deal, I mean, an artist of a more refined and established skill is able to give some specific pointers and more helpful hints and all so of course you wouldn't be happy if someone who wasn't as good as you tried to give you a little advice, I see I see...Wait, what? Why shouldn't they be allowed to give a criticism? It doesn't take a master artist to notice that a pose looks awkward or that an arm isn't proportionate. What shocked me even more is that some people were saying that as soon as they get a critique they'd go to that person's page to see if their gallery was any good. What's wrong with that? Well to me there's a lot wrong with that, why should someones skill level dictate whether they can comment or not? A critique isn't a comparison, it's an observation.

And who cares if the critique is harsh? it doesn't mean they're automatically an asshole amateur, suck it up and quit being such a douchebag.

I'm not going to get into the subject of what constitutes as a critique or if you feel that there was misunderstandings in the critique, I don't need to complicate this journal, all I'm saying is that anyone should be able to give a critique, no matter what skill level.

It's the same for every other field as well, you don't need to be a baker to tell that horseshit tastes bad.

A new thought

So there has been a change of heart lately. After reading this journal, it really made me think differently. 021.deviantart.com/journal/429…
I know for a long time, ever since I started here on deviantart that I have always been hell-bent on showcasing my original characters that it's kind of ridiculous. I used to fixate so much about sharing my ideas and getting people to notice me for my "creativity" that it completely dictated what I should draw. Every good idea I got for another drawing, if I ever first instinctively thought of a character that wasn't my own, I'd make a a hasty change to switch out that character with one of my own so that I could have my character representing them and and have a chance of being noticed; what I realized is that this is what ruins some of my drawings. Although the people who look at the drawings will never know the difference, I knew the difference, and I knew that the original feeling of the image had been squandered because I was so obsessed with showing my characters to people.

Another thing I realized is that just because I'm drawing characters that are original, doesn't mean that people will be mysteriously enchanted with them, lets face it, no one even knows who these characters are, so how are they going to identify with them? The point is, it's not the characters representing the idea that make it more interesting, it's the originality of the idea itself that makes it interesting whether it featured an original character or not, it doesn't matter. I get a little discouraged about the way my drawings that feature some of my original characters don't get nearly as much recognition as some of my recent fan artwork has, but like I said above, how can people like them if they don't even know who they are?

Like the linked journal suggests, just because it's fanart doesn't mean that it's not worth as much as something that's original. I'll admit, when I see other people on here who are well established and even have their own fanbase for their characters and stories I get a little jealous and I tend to always be in awe of them but they have a fanbase because they draw what they want and they don't allow other people's opinions on original or fan art to sway their feelings about it.

Basically the point of this journal is that I'll draw whatever I want now, and I'm not going to be so obsessed with getting my stuff noticed. That's not to say that I'm going to quit drawing my own characters, I'm just not going to let what other people think is worth more dictate what I draw.



Bottom line:
JUST BECAUSE YOU DRAW ORIGINAL ART, AND YOU DEMEAN OTHER ARTISTS WHO DRAW A LOT OF FANART, DOESN'T MEAN YOUR ESTABLISHED AS A FANTASTIC ARTIST.
