Okay, I love it that you guys find my art interesting and stuff, and that you all even bother to give me little critiques on my anatomy etc.
but seriously, stop.

I'm 16
SIX. TEEN.
I draw for fun, I'm not trying to be perfect o_o
If I want critiques, I'll ask for them.

I KNOW what mistakes I made, I DON'T need you to point them out and rub them in my face :/
A good portion of the sketches I draw are done in less than 10 minutes, and with no references used, obviously it's not going to be amazingly accurate, unless I was trying.

Now I know you are all just trying to help or whatever (Or maybe you're not, I wouldn't know), but I don't need it. If I wanted to draw show-accurate pictures, I would. If I wanted to draw realism, I would.
but I don't WANT to, so I'm not GOING to.

I'm perfectly content with how my art looks, if you don't like it, why are you here? e_e


And sorry if I seem like a real ass right now, I'm not trying to be :XD:



also a Pony and a Horse are two different kinds of equines, a pony is not a baby horse 8I

When I read this, I briefly considered stopping commenting on your art, as I'm more than twice your age and now it seems kinda CREEPY for me to be talking to you over the internet. But I guess since it is about art, and not you personally, I'm okay with it if you are.

TBH, I've always wanted to draw but I keep letting life take all the time away from me before I can put enough towards learning. I'm so proud to see someone who has not only avoided that mistake, but takes pride in drawing for their own enjoyment rather than to please others. And to beat all those challenges so early? Wow, just wow. *sniffle*

Um, I mean. I like your art, random internet person whom I don't know at all. Please do continue.

Haha, I may be young, but I'm pretty sure I've seen some of the worst of the internet, talking to people who are much older than myself doesn't seem odd to me at all :XD:

Why, thank you very much! x3

I'm pretty much the same way art wise, in that I draw for fun. Only difference is, I do take criticism to heart, myself. Sometimes I won't see things that are erroneous that someone else will, and it gives me an opportunity to correct that. And right now, since adapting to my new art style for MLP art, there's plenty of room for improvement for me. xP

OHMYGOD! You're 16?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!??!?!

Q_Q I'm 20 and you draw like a bazillion times better than I do... I always assume epics like you are at least 19! Finding out you're my little sister's age makes me feel inadequate :XD:



BTW, do you do commissions? And if so, how much do you charge for them? (I use paypal!)

Show me the one who upset you I'LL KILL THE BITCH!!! Srsly, this unasked criticize is a sort of self-esteem fund for smart guys who are too lazy to improve themselves. So they just mess others with dirt to feel their own glory. You are cool, i tell you! Very skilled and got your own awesome style. Just don't give a fuck to them. :smoking:

I love this post. I wish more artists could take comments in stride like this and be confident with their work. Progression will come as it does--with experience. I've seen AMAZING talent be wasted because kids don't know how to handle criticism.
All that to say, I love your shit. Keep rocking out and stuff. Woot.

:iconfacepalmplz: Just a quick tip. No one should ever post something saying "This reminds me of...." Or "This looks like ..." It sometimes sounds like you're saying that someone's art is unoriginal when you say that. I know that's not how it's meant to sound :p

Oh wow, I thought you were older! SILLY ME. I'm that you're saying you love doing Art for fun, not for everyone's happiness. :D Well you know, not satisfying everyone. I love artists that do art just for the joy of it! That's what I do, I just dislike being forced to do something (which oh-so happens to be happening in my Art Class, but that's expected). Keep on having fun! :D

I completely agree. If artists want a critique, there is a way on dA to ask for one, but so often I see people posting unsolicited criticism about other people's art and it drives me up the fucking wall! What really gets me is that most often the critic is someone who doesn't even know how to draw (I know because I'll check their gallery), and I'm like, "where do you get off? If you don't even know how to draw, why are you criticizing another person's artwork?" Unless the artist asks for it, criticizing another person's art is just rude.
(and, no, I don't think you're being an ass at all)

Your art is absolutely unique and nice to look at.
I can't say I can relate to this at all but remember; we're drawing cartoon ponies who apparently have a strong bond called "The Magic of Friendship" and not only that but when using the Elements of Harmony they shoot a GIANT RAINBOW. Oh and they have magic... and... rainbows and.. stuff... and.. yeah, you get my point. xD

I'm 17 and I've been drawing since I was 16. I take critique. I know what mistakes I make too. Most of the things people critique, I'm fully aware of. I still listen. It's still important. If you refuse to listen to your friends and fans giving you friendly critique, then you are only crippling yourself.

That's not what I meant at all ._.

I mean, when people constantly tell me "they look really skinny" or, "I can see the bones" or "the arm can't bend like that"
I honestly don't need to bother with that, I know all of those things, but I choose not to change how I draw because it's a CARTOON
it doesn't need to be PERFECT
And if a FRIEND tells me I could change something, I take it into consideration. I know they are someone I can trust,but If I don't see their way, I'm still going to argue out why I think something should stay the way it is.

I get nit-picked like this all the time, and it's seriously frustrating. I could go and pick at everything I see wrong with any picture, and shove it down the artists' throats, but I'm a decent enough person to know that doing so isn't going to help

I've learned from experience that critiques aren't always helpful.
I find praise and tips are the only things that really help someone improve. People don't like to believe they're wrong, you've got to give them the chance to figure it out themselves.
When I look up something like anatomy, I'm doing it of my own will, not because someone suggested I should do it because they think I suck at it :/


Sorry if I seem a bit rude. It's late and I'm just a bit ticked right now

I see what you mean more now. The way you worded it in the description is a bit different. Might want to take another look at it to make sure it sounds how you really feel.

I still disagree with you about critique versus praise, but that's just a difference in philosophy.

The reason I'M such a big fan of you, is because your are is actually really inspiring for me. If you can draw crap like that easily with no problem, I want to get to that point too...
