|First after an inspiration dry spell... |
... and as per usual I'm almost satisfied.
Maybe it's an artist's bane.
By all means enjoy.
Ink, lines and dots.

Popularity: A refreshing viewI've read stuff in other people's journals (and in the forums, continuously) about dA being a popularity contest, how unfair it is that some people are popular and other, more deserving people aren't etc. And I'd just like to say...umm, no! There is no such thing as 'deserving' or 'undeserving' when it comes to art, because art gains popularity simply from people looking at it and liking it, and there is no one type of art that 'deserves' to be liked more than any other type. Art is about the message it sends out, inspiring the viewer, getting a reaction, making people think. And it doesn't have to be some amazing complex detailed painting that took six weeks to do to have this effect on people who look at it.Popularity: A refreshing view by RockstarVanity
I don't want to get into a whole 'what is art' thing here, cause that's not what this is about. It's about dA and the perceived popularity contest. People whine about 'unknown' artists not getting enough
