I really do hate it when artists do that I mean, put some effort into your work! (Unless it's a Monday morning freehand sketch) Smile People who draw the same thing over and over, regardless of how little it's changed (It's practically the same thing), really get on my nerves. Even if the artist has poor skills, the least they could to is try, and clean the drawing up a bit. I go over to DA once and a while to see if anything has changed and all I see on the front page is a bunch of myspace photos and rough sketches (Which aren't WIP).

Topic: Lady Gaga

Her songs are very catchy, but I don't really listen to her songs all that much. I only hear them when I'm in the car with my mom or something. I do like how open she is and fresh. She has a quirky style and I respect that. Most people prefer to blend in and be typical. Though sometimes she does go a bit overboard, but that's just part of being unusual and new. You have to show the world that you're not afraid of what they think and you don't care what they say. You just do what you love most and you enjoy every moment of it.

What makes me join an artsite? - I like to show my art and literature to the world, I want others to feel what I feel and see what I see. I like to help others in their artistic journey, and I like to encourage them to always do their best and put all they've got into an art piece. Well, unless it's a gesture drawing. ^-^ But overall, I want to feel a part of the community and share my art with others who appreciate it.

What keeps me active once I've joined? - If everyone else makes an effort to keep the galleries fresh and updated with new art pieces, including myself, then I'm happy. Being social is included, but you don't have to be some myspace social networking phsyco who spams almost every single new art submission with shallow, hollow, and meaningless appraisal. That doesn't help much. Sad

I think popularity doesn't really matter, unless it was unintentional. If you have a passion for your artwork, then people will notice and will really feel that passion you feel, no doubt they would watch you for new art submissions. Personally, popularity all depends on how you aquired it and what your popular for. If you're famous for art theft, copying, cheap fanart, tracings, et cetera, then you're not famous; You're infamous, which means being famous for all the wrong reasons. (Like pornstars, ^-^) If you are a fan of anime, and like to base much of your artwork off of it, make sure you put in some effort! Don't draw something everyone has seen millions of times, it gets really old. (Like Fur Elise, but it's still an amazing song.)

What I really hate most is when people just draw the same crap over and over again with no feeling or thrill to it! Or they make their own version of another famous fanart drawing. For example, the "Smile for Me Sesshoumaru" drawing of Rin and Sesshoumaru, where she is holding his cheeks in a smiling position. I've seen that drawing remade so many times it's sick. Create your own art, be the change you want to see in an artsite, don't be typical. That's how you stand out from others. It's not about how many comments you can make in one day, or how many different poses of Inuyasha you can draw and still get hundreds of comments,it's about passion. It's what it's all about.

Breast size has always been somewhat of a drama topic, especially in my school. There are girls, around thirteen and fourteen, who think that they need to have enourmous breasts to get a boyfriend. In fact, there is a girl in my school who has large breasts (I'm in middle school), and she flashes them around to the entire male population like she's some infamous pornstar. Girls like that are very tiring and bothersome, but nonetheless I still feel sorry for them. What teenage girls need to know is that larger isn't better, larger isn't always prettier or more attractive, and it most certaintly is not just a sex plaything.

I can draw kanji just fine, it mostly consists of straight lines anyways. But hiragana is the problem. It always turns out looking funny. Do you know of a software for hiragana and katakana?

  I need some suggestions, if you have any. I've been working on a Japanese manga lately, and I've realized that it's really hard to write in Japanese using a mouse. Does anyone know of some software that allows you to write in Japanese, like for comics/manga? I use Manga Studio Debut for my comics, but it doesn't have an option for Japanese dialog. If you could help me that would be great, if you want my Japanese comics to be legible, that is. ^-^

 I have a few meager suggestions to make. First, even though it's really no big deal, viewing my profile can be somewhat of a pain. I don't like having to scroll through options. Could you make it so that all I have to do is click my username? It would be quick and easy for me, and I'm sure others would appreciate it as well. Thanks! Smile

Uh- If you're having problems with anatomy and proportion, it's actually better to sight the referance rather than trace, cause tracing doesn't make your brain think. If you sight it, it will take a little longer to get it, but when you do, you'll KNOW it and wont need to trace to draw. 

Drawing from the Right side of the brain would be a good book for you to loosen up on Smile

It's more about recognising shapes and forms than accuracy. I hope that helps ^^;
