Are you effing kidding me?? Not to say my work is the most amazing stuff out there but my works have been denied access from several groups as submitting my works! Now I have seen some pretty basic shit there soo from now on I will stick with my two regular groups unless invited to add a piece to a group! EFF THAT CRAP
As you can see I have gone back to the basics of the journal skin. It is to show my great disappointing feelings here at DA recently.
My first heartache is this I have seen so very many artists on here flourish and come into their own, adapt their own styles, learn amazing techniques, keep on coming up with new and creative pieces, And so many of them go unnoticed, without acolytes and with a mild fan base.
Mean time I have seen people taken basic stock add a layer of texture or two over it and filter the hell out of it and it goes with the highest praise, where is the ethics in this? Claiming a piece is painted when it is clearly not. it is just extremely filtered. This just makes me sick to my stomach.
And the basic same piece of art, over used stocks in same scenario.] over and over again.
I have seen groups pop up that celebrate beginner art as genius wonderful and amazing and on a different level.
Not that it should not be seen or commented on but if your Art Group is called [just making up names now please pardon if there is a group with such names] A Step Above, Unique Imaginations. etc etc and just any art of the same stock on a generic background is praised then yeah it leaves me sad and feeling upset.
Over spamming art into groups to have popularity contests also sucks like a friggen Hoover.
I am definitely not saying my work is the best or even beyond others but what I am saying is I can tell most artists by their "signature " style and that is what sets them apart.
Their fluid blending, there idea to taking an already overused piece of stock and make it different, make is special and give it some beyond others.
Where as I have seen purchased stock without credits claiming to be "painted"'
I AM SO TIRED OF THE LACK OF TRYING, CREATIVITY, OR LASTLY "THINKING" YOU ARE FOOLING SEASONED ARTISTS.
I am not pointing fingers or naming names but if you take this to heart then it is more then likely you who is guilty of one of these things.
I have not posted a lot of my recent works here because my thought is this, "why bother?" I take my damned time hundreds and hundreds of layers blending, painting manipulating etc, when it is going to be stacked up and compared to someone who has spent minimal time slapping a cut out stock, onto a prefabbed bg and texturing the shoot out of it.
People who I love who have their own flavor and you can tell at some point someone has rooked their ideas if your name is not on here please do not take it personally
in no specific order
