Ehhhh, I think yeeeah…BUT its MY personal work and I love it and I do them for me not for them.
Anyone with a proper art eyeballs can see it’s a style choice and not a limitation. When it comes to my personal work, the only one I have to answer to is me. If people enjoy that work then thats great and if not then, oh well! We are probably not meant to be! </3
Plus, like-I dunno, Frozen turned out pretty ok and that was a Disney feature film, so I’m not too worried about the drawings I make for fun.
babs, you are a professional with tons of young artists that admire you. dont give them this piss poor excuse as advice to look up to
Hello art student, I saw your reblog and I just wanted to say that I’m sorry you think this is piss poor advice. I still stand by it, but it probably wasn’t clear so here it is written much more bluntly.
I work a full time game artist job for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, where I draw what I’m told to draw not what I want to draw. So in my precious, precious free time…I indulge myself and I draw whatever and HOWEVER I want.
I didn’t get very far right out of school because I was trying to draw what I “thought” my portfolio should be and not what I wanted to draw in my heart. ***BUT*** as soon as I stopped caring what other people thought (like people who thought all the women I draw look similar, or that it was bad that my portfolio was full of women PERIOD) and I followed my heart and drew what I wanted…I have never had more fun things happen career wise!
Doing that has gotten me lots of amazing jobs doing a wide range of things including doll designs for Hasbro, comic covers for BOOM! studios, editorial work for major newspapers, creating game art for two different companies in 3 completely different styles, features and interviews in major art magazines and websites, cosplayers dressing up based on my drawings, ect, ect.
So like I said people with “proper art eyeballs” can see its a style choice and it has not limited me from being a successful illustrator. You can’t please everyone, but you can work hard to create work you think is really rad and fun and fingers crossed you’ll get some jobs where ppl pay you for it! ;)
OKAY — So I hope that’s some clearer advice all you young artists can handle. It might not work out for everybody but its going pretty ok for me so far! Good luck and God speed!
