PLEASE. If anything, they must be praised for their amazing attempt to overthrow the world and surpass my doodles. It's obvious they must be showered with thousands upon thousands of watchers while Those like me must be shunned and struggle to be noticed.
In all seriousness I dunno. .-. It's hard to find really amazing stuff in te "newest" but I hate searching otherwise if I'm just browsing.
You have any examples of these "critiques". I'd like a little context before hopping on your rage bandwagon.
Although all these half-assed drawings that flood "newly submitted" aren't exactly my thing I understand that I was there at some point. Frankly I think rather then tear these kids down we should encourage them and be proud that they're exploring art in some shape or form. Manga and anime got me into art. The stuff I made was shit but what mattered was that I was making SOMETHING.
So fuck yeah, you go and post that drawing of Sonic because if that's what you love and that's what you have fund drawing than who am I to tell you to do something more "refined"?
Don't proliferate sonicfaggotry. The last thing that we need is that. Meanwhile, I do agree, we should strengthen them; but I think the best way to do this is to break them out of the habit and teach them what it means to create artwork and to express themselves genuinely with a cultured taste.
As long as they're having fun what difference does it make? If they want to grow as an artist they themselves will find the means to. I doubt most people who got into art started drawing because they saw a Jackson Pollock painting. These things take time.
By doing something else rather than making bad artworks such as scribbled-up furries and animu.
Learn the basics.
Learn a touch of realism, adding depth to your work, experimenting with other 'art styles', and creating your own works of art without needing to rely on a fandom to have a subject to create upon.
You should understand that art is an action, a form of communication and expression of ideas and concepts and NOT the result of scribbling sawnik, tracing bases, and pissing all over the place to make some "Original Character" that no one will care about. It's the means of conveying what you wish to an audience. Even trolling is a form of art since the troll will use their dialogue or visual content to create a response from you. To get you to think or to react in a positive or negative manner. It takes work to pull off a good work of art.
