First of all please take this journal in a Positive sense, and this journal is mainly aimed at teenage Artists..

Dear my friends, many of your dream to be better artist, but what we can see most on the deviantart is drawings of some ponies,wolves,sonic characters.....its kay if u draw them because you are a good fan of them, But also please  Draw something New from inside your mind, something more creative..find your taste, play with it,first it may seem difficult but gradually you get your own style, and make it presentable and show it to everybody..
Here is what i can promise you...

I WILL SUPPORT YOU GUYS UNTIL MY DEATH, you guys are awesome, you guys are the future, and create your future.. Dont get blocked in artworks... And dont get out of mood

And DO WHAT U LOVE TO DO..Love you all <3

  • Mood: Love

As a teenage artist myself, I often find a lot of pony art and sonic art, I really agree with what this says.

glad im not the only one realizing about this. I mean, yes i's fine drawing those kinds of pictures but to think you still consistently draw those characters, which are idols for mostly kids, and you're a teenager (14 and up). at least draw something either more original or change it up a bit like drawing a sonic character in anime style or something of the sort. ya know?

I don't understand what's so wrong about drawing ponies, wolves, or Sonic characters. Some people are really REALLY good at it, so why shouldn't they show it? I mean, if someone doesn't wanna look at pictures of ponies, wolves, or Sonic characters then they should stay off of the profiles of people who do.

I just kinda think its unfair to tell the teens who look up to you that they basically can't become a better artist if they draw what they like to/are good at drawing.

My father told me the same thing once, that for being a good artist you should not only draw things like Donald Duck (just for an example), he told me that the people who drew them also were good artists beacuse you can't expect to draw as they did without practicing. However, aside from that, he told me that I should draw a lot of things and do my best. I don't draw Ponies, Sonic Characters, Wolves or anything like that but still is hard work, and I'm hoping to learn a lot of things during my life. You're right, artists can draw everything you listed there but also draw more and more things so they can practice and become familiar with all sort of things. :)

It's really sad that drawing fan art is now pretty much the most viable way of gaining followers.
I'm not saying that fan art does not require any creativity at all, I'm saying that it's somewhat restricting due to the fact the characters have been pre-established (with their appearance, behaviour) and the fact that most fan art will follow the style of the original source.
People recognise familiar characters, which is why drawing "other people's OCs", AKA fan art, will net the artist more popularity / favourites etc.

This journal isn't trying to discourage you from drawing fanart, but it is encouraging you to try out your own style and to create your own characters, and hopefully one day you'll be well-known for it and your artwork will spawn it's own fan art.

Thank for this wonderful journal, it really made me think of how I never reach my true thoughts, and really just move like a zombie. Where everyone wants me.
