My biggest one would be the art of which artist are generally tolerant to his fatal flaws (not careful with his character formation, throw lines carelessly, etc).
In other words, a rushed picture to upload it to site quickly to get his dose of praise.
I know because I am guilty of this as well and realized how much of a snot I used to be back then. Although I stopped drawing for a while, if I ever come back I will pay a respect to my own crafts and prioritize quality.
- When Drawing multiple charters, I draw one really good but the others look bad by comparison. - Drawing hands and feet - When artist's use giant, high opacity watermarks. (especially the ones that have "do not steal" on it.) It's really distracting. - When a stranger asks me to draw them for free in real life, and i have to be nice and say yes. - When my friends call my art "cringe" or "edgy" even though there are a lot of things out there that are much worse. - Self entitled artists that accuse others of stealing their style, pose, charter, and other rediclous things. - When artists view criticism as an attack. and/or is very sensitive and has a fit over one person saying bad things about them or their art.
- Basically self entitled artists in general.
-This happens to me sometimes. Is when someone posts commissions, or anything that relates to the artist drawing something for others. I read the rules right after it's posted and I note or comment, and i completely get ignored. Other people after me get theirs done, and the artist never replies to me. I know if this sounds like i'm whining, and i i'm not that angry actually, but this happens to me many times for me to get peeved.
- When i can't draw one thing (Like hands for example) properly but can draw everything else pretty nicely. - When people get upset when i refuse to work for "exposure" or on "Passion projects." - When i draw characters nicely but draw backgrounds horribly. Also, when people argue with me when i refuse to listen to their Unsolicited, unhelpful "Advice" on how to improve my art.
When I miss a fill spot. It bugs me enough when the fill spot is tiny, only around one pixel, but when it's particularly large, for example, the entire exposed leg from the pants to the shoe... Oooooohhhh boy!!
Oh yes! Also, when someone assumes that someone is doing an old dance from long ago when she's just sitting on a bed, or, more jarringly, thinking that two characters stated to be siblings are in fact lovers!
Biggest Pev.. is when the art work is judged by the artist and not the art work. EG; if a photograph has a famous photographers name attached to it it is automatically judged as an awesome piece of work.
Art should be judged on its merits and not how well known or famous the creator is . Great art can go unnoticed or merited because the person who created it is not part of the "IN" crown/scene.
same as for food ... because it is run by or visited by famous people the restaurant must be good.
any hows.. that my 2 cents worth on this topic. just because you are not well known or famous your art could be just as wonderful as the best in the world , it just a matter of a name attached to it.
There's one thing that rrrrreally irritates me as an artist; well, two, actually
The first one makes me feel bad for even saying it out loud but well, it is what it is Anyway I just have lots of discouraging feelings whenever I see one of those art pieces who get sold in the six figure range of prices, and all you see is something that looks as if a first grader put it together with some finger-painting technique I can't wrap my head around that, and I try to put all jealousy aside, but it's not always possible
The second thing is when my own family decides to "hire" me probono(note the quote marks on the word "hire" ) ... And it's usually to design a logo with all their stationary variations With like 3 or 4 FREE "corrections" ("corrections" usually involve changing their mind about what they wanted initially, and then keep changing their mind until their heart is content )
Yeah, I think that the second thing bothers me even more than the first one!!!
- Not being able to find a reference of the pose you wanna draw - People asking me for free art - People thinking artists are born with artistic skill - When programs bug out and you have no idea why - Forgetting to save for 2 hours - "Its muh style"
When your pirated drawing program starts bugging out for no reason. When your wrist punishes you for drawing too much. When you can't find a good reference picture and the pose is too complex to take it yourself.
"Becoming an artist means you won't have any money, train to be an accountant or something so you won't starve."
"Drawing is part of your identity, don't give up on it."
Alone those statements are okay, I don't mind the first, the second is probably a good idea, and the third is very true, but from the same person? Mixed signals while growing up was strong u_u So you think I have a gift, but you don't want me to use it? *sighs*
Other than that, people who are friendly and talk with me only to request art, and back off and never talk to me again as soon as I say I don't usually take requests, and people who repost stuff or use it in videos/posters/anything without permission and/or without credit. I don't use a CC license by default, people, most of my stuff isn't free to use :I
- People who ask requests of me that is obviously fetish stuff. Especially when it is focused on underage characters. - People who ask me why I joined the military instead of making a living as a professional artist. - People pressuring me to write them into my stories as a main character. - People who look at my artwork and call it "anime".
I have way too many, but here are some of my pet peeves to satisfy you uh... sir. Or madam.
Traditional Art -
Low quality paper. My minimum is 105 lb.
Low quality watercolors.
Forgetting to put extra papers under my painting and getting everything dirty and messy.
People looking trough my sketchbook just after eating.
Smudging with fingers and calling it shading. I am okay with it when a beginner does it since then it is understandable. But when people use the excuse of being "too lazy" I get absolutely pissed. If you are too lazy to learn an essential part of your job, you might as well just quit right then and there. And this isn't limited to art. I've had arguments with bus drivers, teachers, cooks and loads more before.
Digital Art -
When my Art Program, Tablet and dllhost.exe don't get along.
Getting all proportions right on my Traditional Sketches, but none on Digital.
Same with digitally Shading Tentacles.
Basically getting anything I got Traditionally right wrong on Digital.
Air and softbrush Line-art.
Opaque patches of black labelled as "shading" that burn the eyes of any and every human alive.
When people expect you to pay 3000+ Euros for an animation software.
When my editing or animation software cannot go up to 4k.
When my CPU cannot handle 4k videos.
Shot versus shot.
Animation Memes -
Animation memes that are literally 3 or 4 pictures just floating around, with no actual movement.
Still and Stiff camera angles.
Bad sound and unnecessary static.
FAKE TYPE Animation Memes (Not only because I am High-key obsessed with them and have very high standards towards animation memes in general, but mainly because every FAKE TYPE Animation I've seen so far was of low quality).
Memes abusing special effects.
Furries. Not all of them, just the ones animated by people who don't even know how general anatomy works.
