IDK THIS IS JUST A RANT U DON'T NEED TO READ IT IF YOU DON'T WANT TO *A*
So, posted something on facebook a while ago that I totally agree, actually, we talked about it lots of times, it's about the "copying artstyle shit":
I really don't like it when artists heavily reference or plain out copy others and open up commissions for a much cheaper price than the original artist. Studying someone's art and taking a couple of features may be fine, but if someone looks at an art piece and can say: "wow this looks oddly similar to so and so's drawing style" that means you should change it up a bit.
um yeah, that's not cool! This makes me unmotivated and depressed! I work hard to get better, and I always try new stuff, add details I didn't use to in my drawings etc... just to make it "different"... y'know, my style isn't the same than it was 3 months ago, and I totally know my commissions aren't the cheapest ones, and that my style isn't the most original one, but I can for sure recognize each detail I put into my drawings! It's unfair, being inspired by someone's art is very different from ''copying''... and when you make money with it, it's even worse... =_=
Sorry gaiz, I just wanted to rant, this just pisses me off so much sometimes...
