About fanart...

Journal Entry: Mon May 26, 2014, 8:41 AM
I have grown so tired of it.

Not the fact that you simply draw what you enjoy, not the fanart where you celebrate other forms of art in your own style, and not when you show genuine appreciation for something you enjoy.

I'm sick of the fact that the only good way to go anywhere with your art online is through fanart. Mass produced, selling it in whatever forms you may wish, and to put more time and effort into basically being forced to draw other creations than your own.
And not all people can come up with original content, I get that. I really do. I myself prefer to just draw my own stuff, but it's not being seen or noticed. Wow, I want to be noticed? Am I such an egocentric bastard?! Well, yes, why is it so wrong to wanna reach out to others with your art?

That's why it bothers be so much. I'm not reaching anyone by drawing someone I feel no deeper connection to other than "I love this show/character!". No, it's by no means WRONG to do that, I do it from time to time, but it's just for fun. Nothing more. The other stuff I work on myself is so much more personal. I don't connect with others the way I do through my art.

Oh well, if it makes you happy to draw fanart and make a living of it, by all means, nobody will stop you. I just get a bad taste in my mouth when I dig to deeply into it. 


Aaaaanyways I hope you all are doing well!
