yay for another randing journal XD

anyways...It's just a pet peeve of mine that I normally don't complain about but that ALWAYS makes me pop out that anime angry vein in my head and I'm pretty sure a lot of artists (if not everyone) hates.....

...being compared....

I mean seriously....I really don't want to bitch about it and I'm sure the people who say it think it as a compliment but it really isn't... the phrase "looks like _____" or "reminds me of _____" are of the worst things you can say to someone because even if their picture IS based on it you're basically saying "congratulations on wasting your time making a rip-off"....and I'm not talking just for myself, I've seen people having their work compared to other artists or anime/cartoons because of silly details such as eyes, hair, horns, cloth, etc etc....

here's something to think about first.....think WHY you think it's similar, and in how many aspects it's similar before saying anything....if they just have a silly detail in common you're better off just not saying it....on the other hand, if the resemblance is uncanny to the point the character looks like just a recolor of an original existing character with little twitches now THAT'S a rip-off, but unless it's an actual screenshot badly edited in Paint you still can't argue about it.

I could talk about "based off-" and "rip-off" but thaaaat's another more debatable topic that I just won't get into (hopefully)

I have trouble controlling that lineart portion of it because there are dots everywhere =P

Random, but your drawings, for the most part, contain a good deal of everything I look for in a man! As i said, random.
