Woofs Are Serious, So Serious

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 26, 2012, 7:37 PM



This is something I've said before, but that was probably well over a year ago when there were less people to see it.

I don't want people to stop drawing. Anyone, no matter how doofy or weird.
Bad art is still art, and I love bad art.
I don't hate ANY of the art I redraw or fav. All of it brings a smile to my face and it's always a sadness when it gets deleted due to flooding.
I don't redraw things to "make a statement" or "stick it" to someone, I do it because it's funny to me. And sometimes it's funny to me to redraw something by an obvious bait account or something "not that bad".
None of my work is malicious, it was all done with a light heart.
Woofs are for shits and giggles, a woof is not a weapon.

Bad art doesn't lower DA's quality, NON-art lowers its quality. Screenshots, traced bases, demotivationals, photobucket dumps, these are anti-art. Nothing new was created, only submitted. In the case of traced bases; de-created and submitted.

So please settle down a bit when you're linked to bad art and already see comments. No one is happy when it gets deleted, especially not me.
It robs us all of the original artist's comments.

Or don't, I can't pretend to control you nuts.

Pssshhh, your art is funny, and it amuses me.

People who can't handle it needs to grow up.

Besides, most of my artwork who do get 'trolled' are old shits, so it doesn't really matter much,lol.

This is basically the same way I feel about woofs, sparkledogs, and all the other 'so bad it's good' art on DA. Really. If people stopped drawing this stuff, it would be a lot less entertaining.

Also, I respect the rare people who draw gaudy designs and manage to keep a sense of humour about it instead of taking it super-seriously, and don't pitch a fit over your redraws and such.

Very well said. This phrase needs to be put up on dA everywhere.

As someone cool said once "good artists are the crappy artists that never gave up". I think it was *frzdragon.
And yes, despite how obvious this journal is, it's needed, I guess.

So true. The only artists I have ill feeling towards are the ones that are against any form of improving themselves. I remember having a phase when I was younger where I was resistant to any critique and the like, and I stagnated for several years because of this. When I finally started accepting critique, I made massive leaps of improvement within just a few years.

So yeah. This.

This is good.
I've never been one to bash art that's just really poorly Warriors Cats OCs done in MS Paint, because they're usually done by 10 year olds who don't know any better.
I'll admit to being an ass about other things, but I think it's best to leave early artists alone, since we've all been that bad at one point.

I like bad art because I remember when that was my art.
I don't post rude comments unless there's actually something I find offensive about the drawing.
I wouldn't have wanted someone to do that shit to me when I couldn't draw as well as I do now.

Fuck yes, I so agree with this statement.

Terrible or amazing, art is still art, and this is an art website. Anything involving the creative process posted here is alright by me.

Besides, bad art is fun. In so many different ways. <3

Thank you for coming out and saying this. It's just that some of your fans get carried away. Sometimes they can be really helpful and actually give genuine art critiques but the "Please die / Stop drawing forever" type comments that they leave are a bit overboard for some twelve-year-old just learning how to draw.

I'm 12, going on 13. Soon. [Admitting that I'm under aged, yeah. But uh..] And I'm still learning. It really puts me down when people put that my art sucks or something, because mostly I do try to get better.
So I can agree with that. Saying to 'go die' because of 'bad' art is uh. Extreme.

Well don't get discouraged, if you keep drawing and improving that's awesome. I'm sorry people were being rude (but such is the way of the internet I guess).

Jking.
But I agree with this journal.
at least bad art is still art even if it is poorly drawn or lacks anatomy.
These people still put time and effort into it.
As you mentioned traced bases motivationals and things like that are not art.
