Okay so I know I posted a finished illustration from the last post but it turns out, it's still not completely finished. After getting some harsh feedback from people on conceptart.org, the main thing was that the composition was a little too boring and that I needed to fix the edges of things and make the shadows more prominent. I understand feedback is important but I could only get the feedback after ranting about not getting any feedback after 100 views. 100 views! And not one person can say anything nice. Really? Most of the people that commented aren't even as good as me (I know that's mean but it's true) and they couldn't say one good thing about it? Something they liked. It's just, do more studies. Fuck studies! Yes they are important but I don't feel this turned out as bad as they thought and quite frankly I learned a lot from doing this and feel that I have grown as an artist so go me.
I recently joined a digital art and illustration group on linkedIn and one person requested my website. I gave it to them. The only thing you can say after looking at is was...you liked my animation...from like...a million years ago...even though I have my graphic design and illustration work on there...? That's the only thing you can comment on? Really? The person had a blog I glanced at and their drawings sucked. Maybe they think my work sucks too. I don't know but still. I have some good shit on my site. Note to self: Take down my animation section because the animation stuff I have sucks anyway. Plus I'm not going to apply to any animation jobs so it's pointless.
But really people? I'm not feeling the love. What the hell is going on? I'm I living in a different world than everyone else? I know I'm not the best artist in the world but I do feel like credit is deserved when it's due.
P.S. Thanks for the nice comment Dave De keyser.
