Ok. Now stop it's really annoying.

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 28, 2013, 2:00 PM

1 pic posted. 3 comments: She looks like... She reminds me... It's SO annoying to read this all the time. I'm sorry but sometimes I wish my viewers had imagination. PLEASE READ THE LIMK BELOW TO UNDERSTAND WHAT I REALLY MEAN/FEEL. Thanks a lot <3

>>… << :iconMystyTang:

edit > If you look at my journal I've never said I was feeling insulted. I'm bored, I've just said that it annoys me. Don't transform everything :) Then, if your only goal in life is to be popular on DA, well it's sad. I appreciate every critique. It's just that for me, this kind of comment is not a critique but just something said without any true reflection in the end O_o I've read them for 10 years. I think I've won the right to be annoyed one evening in my life.



CLOSED (new slots soon)

Je ne suis pas exactement tout à fait d'accord avec toi Katikut.
Je comprends bien qu'au bout de 10 ans, ça finisse peut-être par être lassant pour toi, d'avoir des commentaires de ce style qui reviennent.
Je vois ça comme une critique , mais limitée, peut être par manque de vocabulaire? de culture générale artistique suffisamment développée?? On a tous des bagages différents tu ne penses pas?
Cela s'apprend avec le temps, de la patience, mais je pense que l'on part tous avec ses propres références et goûts, et ses lacunes aussi.
Même quand un artiste possède un style "inichmitable", on cherche toujours à se poser la question des références et donc trouver un point de comparaison car cela nous rassure en donnant l'impression de mieux le connaître, comprendre ses oeuvres... l'être humain est fait ainsi.
Depuis toujours, nous sommes entourés par des éléments qui favorisent notre inspiration, et chacun à des goûts différents.
Alors certes parfois les références ne sont pas toujours flatteuses...mais je pense qu'il ne faut pas se formaliser là dessus...c'est plutôt bien que ton travail inspire les gens et leur fasse penser à quelque chose qui leur plait et qu'ils admirent non? :)
Quelque part ça leur apporte de la joie. Ca ne devrait pas t'atteindre toi, personnellement en pensant que ça réduit ton travail à une image, car tu as du talent et tu sais bien que ça ne se résume pas à une simple comparaison dans un commentaire...
Je vais continuer à suivre ton évolution pour ma part, car y'a du talent, gambatte girl! ^^

It's hard to learn to critique. What they are really saying is, "all of your work looks like Ariel with different hair. Please show more creativity and originality." Ironically, your young viewers are also wishing ~your~ work had more imagination too! If they were not, you would not receive that comment so many times. Expect more of them.

Recently I've made a piece introducing a character that I've been working on for a little while, and so far the comments say, "Oh hey! it looks like that girl from Metal Gear!"

Now, I feel this situation is a little different, since I did not know this character and was not inspired by that character to make my own. (I was instead inspired by the very attractive art styles and characters of *nargyle and `cheeks-74) So at this point, it doesn't bother me much, especially since I've only one piece of my character and I haven't shown my development sketches of her.

But I do understand your frustration; some people just don't realize where the real inspiration came from.

Ive always found it odd because it certainly isnt a compliment.. not sure there is a point to saying it..
and especially when they're really reaching!
"this looks just like Sakura if her hair was black and she was a large man"

sooo.. not at all?

I don't take it as a critique, negative or positive. For me it's just someone who needs to say "something". :(

You said it perfectly and I agree 100%!!!

Ah... wow.

And here I try so hard just to get people to LEAVE constructive comments instead of just favoriting stuff and fading away into the background.

I know originality is everything, but there is NOTHING new under the sun. Something will always remind you of something else. I don't understand why this is insulting. Isn't it incredible to know that your work has set off a trigger in someone, touched them deeply, even if it's because it reminds them of something else that causes the same response?

...Not trying to start an argument. Just trying to quell the rage and doubt you may feel when you hear those comments. You are OBVIOUSLY a talented artist... and just because a person may not be able to sum up why your work is on par with the Mona Lisa with originality of phrasing... you CAN'T POSSIBLY doubt yourself.
