DeviantART is a sort of claymore….

31 May

I’ve been though DeviantART, looking at pictures and sketch dumps in order to inspire me, should creative block come to feast on my mind. It’s a creativity paradise: digital art that is spotlighted every week, traditional artists (me being one) with pretty good sketch dumps in pen and ink, and many more.

However, DeviantART does have its double edged sword properties. There have been people who trace and get over 1,000,000 pageviews, people who get pageviews by usings “bots”, and people who don’t use much creativity when they know they have enough to do a picture, etc.

I’ve come across users who make OCs, original characters by making actual, established characters, then changing their hairstyle and clothes with the paint brush function, usually in MS Paint. Ever seen a black haired Sonic the Hedgehog or a Blue Sandy Cheeks?

So that’s why I left. And I’m not posting anymore sketch dumps. They’re all going here.

Adventure Time! sketches drawn by me.

Yes, I enjoy sketching out cartoons and anime and also video games. If you want a request, just tell me in the comment box below and I’ll get to you right away.

    Yeah, it does. DeviantART is a pretty good site for inspiration, yet some people act lazy for their creativity. Said before same original characters (with the MS Paint recolors) have also gotten onto Youtube. Even some users think that that’s kind of lame. DeviantART to some is about the art, but without creativity it seems as if art has no form….

    Nice looking work! I barely ever use DeviantArt anymore, either.

    Thanks! I’ll have more in store for this blog. I’ll use DeviantART again when I start moving onto digital art.
