This is inspired by a thread called “Artist that you Tire of" on a forum called Derpibooru. Where people (whom I presume can’t draw themselves) bitch about artists "not trying something new."
Rather than put in the effort to create something new. They’ll just sit in front of their keyboards, bitching and moaning.
The self-entitlement in this thread made me so angry I drew this lovely comic for them and plastered it on their precious board.
People aren’t born with drawing abilities, they are forged out of sweat, tears, and hundreds of thousands of terrible shitty drawings.
While I can understand the frustration here, I would like to say one thing.
What the hell is wrong with trying something new? It CAN get boring when somebody only draws the same thing over and over again, and besides, trying to draw new things is one way to help improve your abilities! Especially if you’re an artist who takes commissions— because then you broaden your horizons and get different kinds of people with different kinds of ideas they want drawn and thus, more money for you!
And by the way, I’m an artist myself. Trying new things is GOOD FOR YOU! So I can’t really blame people who get bored of seeing somebody draw the same thing over and over again, even if their artwork is awesome!
And besides, trying new things can be frustrating, but it’s always rewarding in the end!
I don’t think they meant to say that trying new things is a bad thing.
It’s more likely that they meant that it isn’t just that simple to try new things and succeed right away. When you try new things for the first time, the result is most likely something you don’t want to share. Therefore making it annoying when people constantly say that you aren’t trying new things, even though you are already doing your best to broaden your horizons and trying to improve at the same time.
I just watched episode 12 of Kill la Kill and all I can say is:
I used way more time on this than what I intended to
In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, failing the second input in the Chopper Bros. move will cause this animation to play.
