Hey everyone, yeah, this is my first DA Stamp here (credit to
). I'm going to get very mad here, so warning up ahead. This is a little rant/venting thing I felt like doing. I don't care what anyone says here, I need to speak my mind.
I chose to do this stamp based off of an experience I had on here. On Deviantart, I'd say I'm a ranging from OK to decent artist. I can't draw digitally, only by hand with pencils, papers, pens and colored pencils. My art definitely is not the best on Deviantart and I've gotten criticism but I take it like a man and I'm trying to work to improve. I've seen art that is drawn digitally and far beyond my abilities but I don't mind unless it's a certain kind of art...
That's right, fetish art. I'm sure we know that it is basically disgusting pornographic pictures that do not belong on a public website like this unless with a mature content filter. I do not like it when people do something like that, and the reason I was acting out here is because I like to draw what ideas come into my head based on my interests (and do memes for LOLs) and because I care about Deviantart's reputation and want to make sure it's a good website to use, considering I've heard people left because of fetish artists and such that give this website a bad name. Which leads to this.
I stated my opinion that one said artist's art on his account (I will leave out actual names except certain others to protect who may be innocent), which was drawn digitally, was repulsive and disgusting, saying this:
"Disgusting, repulsive art like this gives Deviantart a bad name."
I didn't insult him personally, I just said his art was disgusting. Then some users came by and attacked me for my opinion, I'll call them User #1 and User #2. User #1 says:
"Since when did you start caring about Deviantart's reputation?"
I've already mentioned in the second paragraph why. User #2 says this to me:
"Let's face it Seiya-Meteorite
, you shouldn't be criticizing Robot001 or his artwork...I mean he's an fantastic artist because he did commissions from me. You can't just call art disgusting and repulsive like that, because that's an insult at all. But you're absolutely right @*****."
I told him:
"I don't care if he did commissions, he shouldn't just post his private fetish out onto a public website where people can see it, unless he puts it on mature content.
And don't expect there to not be criticism if one does post fetish art."
Another one goes to claim that his art is "better quality than mine", so "I have no right to judge", I say the same thing as I said to User #2 to him, and I'm getting frustrated.
User #1 also says to me:
"Top kek. Love how mad you are.
When it comes to art, some people don't care about the subject matter, they care about the quality, and what I can say is that his art has better quality and than yours, even if it is just "shitty fetish art".
And we know this kind of criticism will come with being on here, I mean, it is Deviantart after all, it's not a hugbox like Furaffinity, so I guess the only thing we can do about these kinds of comments is throw their shit right back at them.
To be honest, you didn't even give constructive criticism. You only gave him shit. You could've said that his art is good, but he could do more than BBW/BBM content for once.
This is what angers me. First off, like I said, I never insulted or attacked him directly there, I just said what he drew to me was disgusting, I only stated my opinion. I was disgusted by the content because in my eyes, how can anyone like the content (shading and such is fine but still) in it?
Secondly, the art technique of it being digital or hand drawn isn't
the only important part about the picture, the content is important too and will determine what one thinks. By your logic, it automatically being drawn digitally and such means it's "fantastic", even if it's fetish art? Would a digitally drawn porn/sex picture of MLP with shading and such automatically be beautiful? No, it's still disgusting
. If you post fetish art all over a page, no matter it being hand drawn or digital, it's still disgusting. I've seen artists with good techniques waste their talent on repulsive art like this.
Thirdly, just because an artist does commissions with fetishes in it means they're amazing? Um, there are some pretty fucked up commissions I've seen...you don't want to know
Fourth, you're just laughing in my face and saying I don't have the right to express my opinion negatively and be mad that they're posting their own private fetish on a public website where anyone can see it, and they claim they just "throw comments like that back at them?" Give me a fucking break, I can hate your disgusting favorite art if I want to, so you have no right to tell me I can't state an opinion. I just stated an opinion because I care about DA, me myself, I'm trying to improve my own art and while I have my own fetishes I don't post them all over a public website like an idiot!! Like what
said, if you want to get friends on DA, don't draw weird shit like that, or you'll look weird and destroy your own life. I know they were saying that I could have asked something, but them laughing negated that immediately.
(Also on a side note the supposed "BBW/BBM" art is not attractive, it's obesity, which is a disease)
me that these fetish artists/fanboys just post crap like this and they and their fanboys have the nerve to call it "art", and they can't expect there to not be any negative opinions/people saying their art is terrible, or even take criticism like damn men. It's like what
said (about 6:07 in though it's a different fetish he's complaining about) about what's wrong with this modern society, how you can spit on a piece of paper and call it "art", with this fetish "art" having no talent, effort, creativity, only being there because an artist wants to satisfy his fetish: ttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FNCtMn5IBU
Though I'd even say I could sneeze on an old soggy newspaper, get snot and mucus all over it and all it "art"!!
But it gets even better, believe it or not!! After I did a thing explaining what happened on my status post about this, User #1 stalked me to my profile, had the balls to claim I "lacked talent", then did a journal where he made a mountain out of a molehill over the incident and called me a "12 year old autistic trouble child on speed/SJW of Deviantart". Ironically he later tried to report me for harassment when I wrote on another website explaining how he did that. (I did say he "didn't know what good art was" but that was because I was angry for the reasons above. But still...)WHAT. THE FUCK!!
There are four reasons why this pisses me off right here.
#1. Hating on fetishes is not the same as being an SJW, hating fetishes are opinions and SJWs bitch about something irrelevant like politics, political correctness and such. You saying I can't hate fetishes? Trent Morrison would be proud of you, him being one of the worst/most hated "artists" on the Internet, and he called people who hated his "artwork"/Undertale fans "Nazis".
#2. I happen to have autism and I was VERY
offended by it, so it proves you have no respect or caring for people who can't help having that (I am not using it as a crutch or excuse though).
#3. This is what makes me mad. Like I've said, I stated an opinion, explained why I didn't like your favorite fetish/artist's artwork, and you just laugh in my face, claim I have "no talent" whatsoever at all as an artist, insult me for having autism, and ironically try to report me for harassment and make me look like I'M the bad guy when YOU cyberbullied me FIRST and I only had an opinion and because I CAN'T DRAW DIGITALLY AND DON'T FUCKING DRAW AND PASTE MY OWN FETISH ALL OVER DEVIANTART LIKE A FUCKING DUMBASS?? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU. And considering you have tried to claim that "Deviantart = North Korea", you clearly are NOT ready for the Internet. You don't care about Deviantart or its reputation, you just want disgusting pictures to fill and satisfy your disgusting needs! And me, my art may not be the best but at least I try not to draw weird shit and try to improve my skills. Saying I lack talent? I'm a two-time winner of the Presidential Education Award, sucker!!
(I really am, not trying to be cocky but I hope you know what I mean) Good fucking riddance you deactivated, you deserved it!
I...I'm sorry. I normally wouldn't rage like this, but...it's just...I can't stand people like this.
was right about people like these, they just post their shit all over a public website where anyone can see it, they can't see their ruining their own lives and they try to act like they're the victim in all this when someone criticizes or hates their artwork and they're complete fucking jackasses who don't care for anyone but themselves, they just try to make what they draw what they all are when they know they can do something better but they choose not too and it just gives DA its bad name. Or maybe the artist was having his friends speak for him in his place, I don't know and I frankly don't care.
I dunno, it's just, imagine feeling like this (I've felt like this sometimes, read the description too to understand what I'm saying): o-kemono.deviantart.com/art/Li…
But the artists who have advanced skills draw that disgusting stuff, whilst you try to improve stuff, and you don't get as much views and friends compared to them
(those "friends" are probably people who whack off to that stuff), and when you state an opinion you don't like them, they do shit like that making you feel like you have no talent as an artist whatsoever. And if it's combined like with this thing I had with one of my journals here (where that jackass I talked about had the balls to call my art "shit/cancer" to which I told them to basically fuck off): seiya-meteorite.deviantart.com…
It's just, I don't want it to get to the point where I and other artists who may feel the same way just stop drawing anymore or even say "I can't draw/I can't draw if my life depended on it".
If you get insults and such like that, it's gonna hurt your self-esteem. I'm in a way kinda feeling like how Kiki felt when she lost her witch's powers and in a way what Maria from this anime Trapp Family Story
felt in the first two episodes when she had to leave the abbey, how in the first episode when it was said she wasn't able to fit in and such...
Kinda understand what I mean? I'll be fine though, I'm not going to stop drawing.
To conclude, I wish that if artists chose to draw art like that, that they put it on mature content filter, don't draw just that, draw other stuff (the reason I didn't ask because I was too disgusted to, plus I don't like angering others), and if one says an opinion that they think it's gross or something, don't just insult them claiming they don't have talent or have the right to express their thoughts, it's selfish, childish and it makes you a cyberbully.
Well, with all that said, I hope you understand what I mean by all of this, and that will be all for tonight. I'm going to be posting some sketches tomorrow that hopefully will show I've improved...
