Internet Billboard by Arkham-Insanity Internet Billboard by Arkham-Insanity
Just a reminder of where I stand, ;)
really its very simple. I don't know why people have such a hard time with this concept.

I want this to be a message to any artist that feels put down for what they do, it dosnt matter your skill level, or your fandom, there is no such thing as perfection. this keeps many good artist hands tied...they feel afraid of being bashed and so their creativity dies.

Just draw, have fun!
Please print this it...whatever to encourage yourself and others!

Russia is not evil, Spain is not a pedo and France is not a rapist. Some people you are making a disasterous fanart.…

I made this my "Title-Page" on Facebook, if it's allright. :D Otherwise I'll remove it.

"they feel afraid of being bashed and so their creativity dies."

I've honestly felt this way since November last year, and the haze has finally risen.  This is definitely a real thing!

Yes, it amazed me that even this simple little billboard got bashed for speaking the truth of many artist, there comes a point where you have to not care what people say and do your own thing. the thing that makes you happy and let the progress come at its own pace.

Exactly.  It's a hard lesson to learn, to let go of that anger and jealousy in your heart, but once you can, it is so freeing!

I honestly think some people are getting the wrong idea behind this. I don't think it means "I don't want to try drawing anything else and that's that" but I think it addresses when others say stuff like "why do you draw this person all the time?" or "you draw wolves every single time, just draw something else". Eventually artist will begin to try other things, but forcing them to do it is wrong. You should never force or guilt trip an artist into drawing anything, because the artist should walk on their own two legs and find their own way. Even though I mostly draw animals I do want to be better at drawing anime and buildings and so on, and I'm slowly working on that.

I didn't mean this to be that long, but hopefully people understand my point :)

THANK YOU!!! this is exactly what I was trying to say and it is exactly what I mean, as an artist many people are going to try and push and pull and sway you about what you should do or shouldn't.....Yes art is a constantly learning, even if you are drawing things you like....the point is that you need to go at your own pace and enjoy the journey...stress and feeling pressured is stifling and can turn a joy into a proffesional work is drawing and while it can be fun many times it's not because I am having to draw things for others...I have to take breaks and draw the things I like and want....and I feel myself refreshed!

Thank you so much for seeing the pure and simple message here!

No, I just call it settling for mediocrity.
