Important Art Rant.
So after all the pages and artwork I've seen, I've decided that a new pet peeve is when people do art on notebook paper and post it.
Granted, Deviant art is a passtime for many of the artists, and many of the artists are young. However, it's stupid. Why is it stupid? Because if you can afford a computer, you can afford the cheap, white paper WITHOUT LINES. The lines distract the viewer from the piece of art and generally just look trashy. It's cheap, it shows that the artists don't care enough to take five minutes out of their time to use a real piece of paper. If you don't care, if you aren't focusing on your drawing or giving it the time of the day, why even bother? It's poor craftsmanship, and I about GUARENTEE that if you just hold your breath and take a minute longer on the piece your ablities will increase. It's quality, not quantity.
So that's my rant about the notebook paper entries floating through deviant. Come on folks... notebook paper? I don't think anyone wants to sit around five minutes to upload the image of your between class drawings on notebook paper. Don't waste the time of your viewers, and don't waste your own time. I'm sure the last thing any artist wants is their being limited and downplayed by the cheap look of notebook paper drawings.
If someone could submit an impressive notebook paper drawing, I'd give them a 9.0 for being kickass. There's a challenge for those of you catching it.
