Wow, my thread is exploding.
Let me clear a few things up.
I said "Semiprofessional artist" Because I AM a professional artist, it's been my job, and giving me food the past year or so. I'm new to it, but I thought it was relevent information to me as an artist, and this is a thread in artistry. I spend hours on my JOB'S art projects. I have nothing online that I spend more than a half hour on because I DO NOT HAVE TIME.
Being "Professional" JUST MEANS you make money on it. It doesn't always reflect your arts quality.
That is why I put that there.
Saying "The noses look like drunkard's" Isn't constructive to me. I will make the noses dark if I want. That is the final say in that. I think it's cute.
If anybody wants to make any comments like " The placement here is off" or "The placement there is off, you should move it here," I will listen to those. I'm a rational person, and I don't expect everyone to like my art. It's obvious by people who responded to my art that some people will like it, and some people won't. Everyone knows that, I won't get my panties in a bunch because someone doesn't like my art. You can even tell me that you don't like it, I won't care.
But I do have the right to respond and ask why someone doesn't like my art, and to elaborate further so I can take it into consideration.
My normal art is nothing like this. Want to see what I normally draw?
I am going to warn that these pictures might be frightening to some, however.http://i.imgur.com/92Fzc.jpg
I draw horror. It's my life. I upload my "cutsie" doodles to Uboachan, Tumblr, Deviantart, because I want to be part of the community that draws "anime."
I want people to see that art as WELL as my horror. I go to different communities with that stuff.
So help me, but remember that some things are going to be part of my style, and if you're an ass who just says "Noses looks like drunkards, proportions, how do they work?" I will respond to it. :I
I've taken figure drawing classes, and many art courses. I just want to draw in this style. //shrug//
