He's just jealous that nobody takes his finger painting skills seriously. That or he's just angry that you turned him down to be his girlfriend. ;) Pay him no mind and eventually he'll get the hint that he should walk away. :D

His art really isn't that bad (though there are a lot of far less douchelike folks here that blow him out of the water), and his 'rules' aren't really super off base. It's just the hyper-narcissistic presentation that makes it rageworthy. 10/10 would frown deeply again

Her post wasn't written in a helpful and constructive light, but to boast her 'talents' and lift her so-called ego, so I have to agree with you here. I hate proud artists who are so full of themselves. Nobody has the right to tell you that you are not an artist, only you, yourself can make that call.

She does have some talent, but man oh man she has a long way to go, her fundamentals are very lacking. If one builds a house on sand, it will collapse, same applies with art. Don't take what she said to heart, because as we know, empty vessels make the most sound ;)

Hmm, while the guy does seem very unnecessarily antagonistic and unbearably pompatic I'm finding it very hard to refute his claims/ logic.

Rules are what differentiates a scribble (or a mess of color) from a meaningful thought out piece. Otherwise I could become an artist by merely shitting a nugget on to a piece of paper, fold it over to make a budderfly and hey presto instant art.

His works while trite are technically better then most I've seen on this site. Amongst the fanime, sonic recolors and OC's this illastrat guy is a pro. You could even call him an "artist" a word that is tossed about here like a neckbeard's spankerchiefs... (that's if he's not a troll)

Take that with a grain of salt though as I'm far far from an artist, I hardly even have a refined eye. But a lot of what the tool says makes sense.

There are no rules to "art" anymore. It's been a long time since art actually had to be a good looking piece...

Umm, I'm going to respectfully disagree there. If I make a small dinky shack out of firewood and plywood could I then proclaim i'm an architect/ builder? I'm gonna lean towards the answer of no.
If artists want to be treated seriously they need to properly define the term.

I don't disagree with what you're saying at all.

I believe there should be direction and talent behind a piece. Something isn't art just because they say so IMO.

He hasn't called me one, though since I never really insulted his shit stains he calls art but he's done it to pretty much everyone else. :dummy: I bet he'll reply to this yelling at me about how I don't know what true art is and blah blah blah.

~illastrat is just a young child who thinks that what he draws is the greatest on the planet, and thus convinced himself that he is the "god of art." The only thing you did by creating this thread, as mentioned by ~themastergh0st, is feeding the kid exactly what he is whining and bitching for: attention.

You know what I find odd about this? Everyone keeps saying to stop feeding the troll, yet they keep commenting/replying to them, thus giving the said troll the exact amount of attention they're so desperate for. It's almost like YouTube and Justin Bieber-- they keep whining about how bad he is, yet they keep posting videos about him, giving the guy more and more attention rather than just letting it go and moving on with their lives.

On another hand, I love your photography! :)

and apparently I'm a camwhore, because I take self portraits that "don't covey meaning or have enough light and shadow"

it has enough light and shadow TO ME.
My art does not convey meaning. I don't want it to. Not all art conveys meaning.

At least 97% of my gallery is nothing but doodles while I'm bored that I decide to finish. I rarely put lots of meaning into my art. XD
