I haven't painted in about a month but now I am working up the will power to sling some paint again. I purchased some paint, graphite sticks and 8 canvases. Usually when I take these breaks its like a creative recharge and my first few paintings when I start back up are stellar. So for the next few days I will be getting reaclamated to painting. Here's my complaint...for the most part about 60% of DA struggle to be decent artists but fall short of making good work. They will never be a good artist. Now in addition, 30% of DA has potential but there exist ambiguity whether they will make a substantial mark as an artist. Now, this complaint is for the remaining 10%. The remaining 10 are exceptional in their chosen style. They exbihit a unique ability as GREAT artists.  I don't know if I am in this number and i dont care, but if you are a stellar artist you owe it to yourself and to society to create art with substance. No one gives a fuck if you paint perfect realism or mix color flawlessly. You owe the 60% a voice given that they will never be at their level. You owe the 30% the inspiration to create uninhibitedly and not care about art as a means to an end. It is gross to assume that technical ability supercedes the passion to give meaning. We need a hero not a narcissistic egoist. 10% you are special. Create for the hopeless, create for the voiceless. And every one else, gtfo the way and know your role:)

The end.

You know, people are allowed to draw what they want... regardless of whether you approve. So, instead of arguing with you, I'm going to continue to create art, call it art, and not give a shit whether you think it's "real art" or not. I don't take the opinions of egotistical art school drop-outs seriously. You're silly.

Because people totally shouldn't do something for fun or because they enjoy it.

You're implying you're in that 10%.

:facepalm: So, here's what I learned about you- Anyone who you believe their art is 'shit' and yours is superior, you flame and don't even carry a real conversation with them other than repeatedly calling them 'shit'.

And, if someone obviously better than you, you decide to kiss their ass.

You really are a pathetic little guy you know that right?
