It isn't as much the art as it is what the drawings are about. All their drawings are about the Simpsons characters Sherri and Terri, two of Bart's classmates. This wouldn't be so bad, only the two girls don't actually have a bit of personality, so it's clear that they're only drawing them because they fancy them, but don't want to admit it.

SuperKoopaTroopa was on a Futurama forum called "Simpworks" a few years ago, and at one point he speculated that the writers were trying to make Sherri and Terri bisexual just because the boy one of them had a crush on in an episode that is now over 10 years old (Hungry Hungry Homer, in case you're wondering) looked slightly-kinda-not really like a girl. I kid you not. Disgraceful.

Your rants towards these two artists have nothing to do with this thread, and do not belong here.
Unit42 put quite some effort into his works. So show the man some respect and do not abuse his thread/works as rant platform for your personal animosity towards those artists.

fNOTE: warning, some ranting...

Well, it's another Thanksgiving and well, I don't have a whole lot to be thankful for. I can be personally thankful I haven't fallen ill, my Dad's going to be okay, but that's about it. 2013 has been a really shitty year. I've been through enough turbulence to last me the next decade, and this place shouldn't be another cause of more.

Before, I never put a lot of effort into my art because I always put it behind family and work, but this year I made the mistake of trying too hard to get good at this and the time and effort I put to get better cost me some friendships, nearly got me fired and killed a lot of my social life. Worst of all, trying to keep up with the Artistic Jones's left me in the position of a jealous asshole which killed my friendship with MissFuturama. frown  (I will always miss you.) frown

Obviously, I'm aware I'm never going back to my life in early 2013 when things seemed to get better everyday, but also, I don't see things getting any better in 2014. I can't improve without putting this level of time and energy into what I do, but I can't keep killing my real life just for people to like me and my art.  And worst of all, I just don't have the time and/or energy to improve myself. But most of all, I'm not going back to 2012 and earlier when I was drawing shitty, bare line art every three weeks.  I'm better than that, but the cost of improving myself has taken its toll on all that is and was important in my life.  Believe me, I gave it my all this year and it just wasn't enough.

So, now I'm left in the position of either, a: drawing in a futile attempt at happiness, or b: concentrate on real life and put art behind me.  As some would say: FUCK. MY. LIFE.

But what I'm saying is: If I could live 2013 over again and even though I am grateful for all the support I recieved this past year,  I would've deleted my DA site at the end of 2012 and never looked back. I don't want to delete this page now since there's a lot of people who like what I've done this year, but I'm making my 2014 resolution to never draw this stuff ever again. I know I've said this before, but for what my artistic pursuits have 'offered' it's caused more misery and hardships than any real joy.  I've never hated my life more than I do right now.

If I'm jealous of anyone, it's anyone who can find happiness in art because you have the time to enjoy what you do.  I don't believe anyone is 'gifted' or a 'born artist.'  I believe having time and desire to improve oneself is what makes one great at whatever you desire, but if you can't quit living an adult life, all the desire alone won't get you anywhere and taking a 'break' changes nothing.  I can't do this anymore in the capacity I enjoy.   I feel when it comes to drawing, me and art are in a bad relationship.  Ask anyone whose been in one: you keep running back to that someone thinking it will 'get better', but it's more of the same BS, just a different day.

Was MissFuturama the girl you were ranting about earlier in this thread because she 'traced' her art?

If so, then I don't really feel sorry for you as you pretty much dug your own grave there.

I'm making my 2014 resolution to never draw this stuff ever again.

That seems extreme. I mean, you're talking about drawing, not a heroin addiction. Couldn't you just schedule yourself a certain amount of time per week for art (for example: 3pm to 6pm on a Sunday afternoon), and stick to that?

I've never heard anybody say that drawing ruined their life before, and I've never heard of anybody who became a happier person by shelving their passions and concentrating on the things in their life they don't care about.

Don't give up your art, Unit42. Everybody needs something to throw themselves into so they can relax. Everybody needs something that they enjoy. Just, maybe don't focus on "being better" or "improving", so much as creating a piece for the sake of your own enjoyment of the process. I mean, that's what art is, in its most basic form. It's something that has no practical use or application but exists purely to be enjoyed for its own sake*.

When you say things like this;
I can't keep killing my real life just for people to like me and my art.

It seems as though perhaps you've been focusing more on the appreciation of your work by others. It's your art, not theirs. If they don't enjoy it, that's their loss. As long as you are getting enjoyment out of it, it's worth doing. So, please, don't give up.

Quit posting it on the internet if you want, but keep doing the thing that you enjoy. Without the things that you enjoy, your life will seem empty, hollow, and futile. With even a small bright spot such as the satisfaction you get from drawing a piece for its own sake, you'll find yourself that little bit happier and your existence more tolerable.

So throw out your computer if you feel you must. Avoid the internet like the plague, if that's what you have to do. But keep drawing, painting, scribbling, scrawling, or otherwise crafting the things that are in your head. Get rid of your paper, pencils, paints, and canvases if you like. But continue drawing. Draw in the darkness behind your eyeballs, in the privacy of your brain. Be drawing on the inside.

It's clearly something you've got a passion for, and something that you shouldn't give up on, even if you need to set limits for yourself so that you spend a little time focusing on keeping your life together so that you have a stable environment in which to practise that art.

Things seem shitty right now, but that just means that you need your outlet. You need something with which to work out your frustrations. So don't ever give up on something you love. Dial it back a little, focus on paying the bills and making sure that you're not alienating the people who care about you, sure. But don't give up. That's only going to make you more unhappy in the long run.

I think that you perhaps need to listen to this, and remind yourself that you can only be happy when you're doing the things that bring you happiness.


*Yes, better definitions of art exist. Feel free to keep them to yourself, I'm trying to make a point here. tongue

  For my pics I was proud of, I spent 30 to 40 hours over 2 weeks to complete. You see, cutting back to just a few hours a week would mean the death of any quality work.  I might as well not draw anything at all. frown   

For what I want accomplish I need a lot of time...time I don't have.

The rate at which you output work might slow down, but that shouldn't discourage you from actually doing it if it's what you enjoy. The process of creating your artwork is meant to be something fun, otherwise... well, why would you be doing it? Don't deny yourself that just because it's going to take time to get a tangible result.

The longer it takes, the more worthwhile it will feel when it's done. If you really feel like you might as well not draw anything at all just because it will take ten weeks to produce a piece that you can be proud of, that's sad. Some people spend their entire lives working on an art piece, putting in a few hours a week and never completing it. But they find joy in the progress that they do make, and that's why they stick at it.

It'd be better for you to spend the next four years drawing something amazing that you can be proud of, in increments of a few hours a week, than it would to spend those few hours a week not producing anything, surely?

I have to be drawing constantly, or my skill start to quickly erode.   To me, art is a workout--the more time and dedication you put into it, the better the results.  Going from 20+ hours a week to 2 hours a week isn't going to improve my drawings skills, in fact, it'll make them worse.

Fair enough, if that's the way it is. It's a shame though.

Do what makes you happy, or you won't be happy. If it turns out you'll be happier not making art, I suppose you should stop.

We'll miss your art if you decide to quit drawing, Unit42. But if you're not happy drawing, then by all means, stop.

Maybe in six months time, if you'll decide that there are still pieces in your head that you want to get onto paper, then give it another shot. Or try something different, like a landscape or a still life.

Archive and backup your files, properly store your drawings, put away the pencils. You're the only one who can decide to get them out again. Maybe when you're in a better place, you will.

I want to continue, but real life says I cannot keep producing art at the same pace anymore.  It's the compromise of having to cut back my output to nearly nothing that's disheartening.  Imagine being a little kid who has a 20 minute recess everyday in school and then being told your recess is now 2 minutes long...would you even call it 'recess' at that point?  Would the thought of having a 2 min. recess even make you excited you even have one?

This is the last thing I'll say on the matter--it fucking sucks watching people enjoy themselves and better themselves in art when you want to do the same, but there's not a damn thing you can do about it.  I gave my nervous system this past year trying to get better, but it wasn't meant to be.

I'm very sad you won't be continuing, and I would try to talk you into continuing, but I understand somewhat what you mean. I mean, drawing is a great thing and it's a fun thing to do, but there is a point where other things have to come first, which makes sense. I do hope though that you won't write off drawing completely because you have a really great talent and it shouldn't go to waste. You aren't completely stopping, right?

One thing that has pissed me off is my hair drawing ability...but no more!  This is a new beginning for me since I've found a way to draw hair the way I wanted it to look in my head and the technique/program I'm using now makes the process much easier and faster.

Here's the first pic with the new hair technique:
