Art StylesThis is not some journal about personal woes. I just want to talk briefly about some attitudes towards realistic (and other) art styles that I've come across that... It just kinda seriously bothers me that people think that way about me and other people and themselves.Art Styles by Aerorwen
So here it is; Drawing realism does not equal elitism.
I don't draw realistically because I think it makes me better than other people and I don't know anyone else who does either. I draw realistically because I like drawing that way. Because I'm very particular about details and drawing little tiny details makes me ridiculously happy. It's just how I like to draw.
It doesn't make me better than you or anyone else.
I don't think any of you are below me because you draw anime/manga or cartoon styles. More power to you because I tend to struggle with it, honestly.
And if we all drew the exact same way, all our art would be the same and it would be boring as hell.
Art Trades - OPEN Opening them up. Not first come first serve, unfortunately. Comment below with your OC and I will pick.
Also, If we have traded in the past / are currently on a collaboration / I did a prize for you recently, leave the spot open for new people!
>>PLEASE look over my Art Policy<<
YOU MUST BE AN EXPERIENCED ARTIST - no doodles or sketchbook coloured anime/chibi characters, you know, you have to try and give me something good in return.
I am fairly open to characters, but I will most likely not draw humans and you cannot draw only humans.
I may do an experimental piece, I may do a background.. it depends on my feeling of the character.
I will do canines, felines, fantasy creatures,
