People who get pissed at new artists for “stealing their art style”. They’re learning, you need to leave them the hell alone so they can develop their own style! Of course give them tips and critique/criticism, but don’t be an asshole about it. I also hate people who call themselves art critiques who spread ignorance, saying that “oh it’s the internet they should get used to people saying bad things about their art”. That’s just an excuse for someone to be an asshole. Idk if your criticism is harsh, but don’t just tell them “lol your art sucks” then expect them to just accept that. I’ve been doing art for three years now, so I’m a bit better at responding to this stuff, but you get artists can’t! We need to give them support and help with necessary. Rant over
My pet-peeve would be people who are overprotective over their own art or those who preach what they don't sow.
I've met a number of people within the past 8 years who fit into this category, and when I see these people, I try not to approach them. There's no way I can communicate with them if they are going to be like that. Though, I try to have a moderate judgement when I come in contact with them for the first time.
It's not fair to judge someone without getting to know them first.
I have a lot of things but my biggest pet peeves are people asking if I do requests, commissions, art trade, collab, YCH, Gift art, tags or draw the squad, people asking why they’re closed permanently or people just put a request even though they can go ask someone else to do it.
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!!!
