I want to throw all my art on a pile and set in on fire and delete everything and act like nothing ever happened. Pick up my bass guitar start a new band and play for a crate of beer. :|

But I probably keep creating new stuff...

Sorry I'm not very active on DA anymore. Thanks for all the favs and all! :hug:

I always hoped to get a DD for my pencil work but after seeing crap getting a DD for a long time I don't care much. But I'm really happy some great artists I do watch got a DD so that kind of compensate it I guess. I hope more artists I admire on DA get a DD instead of all the *&*$%(#Q%$(#Q$% but it's probably a matter of taste?

Keep on truckin' dude. Love your work. The only burning of your art work should be indelibly to the back of your viewers eyelids.

Late comment, but anyway... I used to think like that about DDs. It just seems like the community doesn't have much interest in genuinely artistic stuff. What I mean by that is that most of the popular stuff is anime/manga, ponies & wolves, digital stuff that always looks the same, and if by some wonder there's something traditional, it's a pencil portrait or something really cute. There's no eyeroll emoticon sarcastic enough to convey just how big of a joke it all is. I do of course appreciate the skill it takes to draw hyper realistic works, but really it's mostly only replicating what you see... therefore it's really boring to me 99% of the time. Of course there are exceptions, but overall it's all so predictable and old. I just recently returned from a break of over six months. If you ignore the popular stuff, there's still so many good artists here, it's worth it to stay. 

For what it's worth I think both your drawings and mine are easily worth a DD. It's lost most of it's value in my eyes for reasons stated above, but I'd still like some more exposure :D

NP I have a late reply to fit it completely. :P

That's completely true and that's what I always see passing by...Yes and it's also called "Deviant" Art but what's so deviant about most of the art? I don't expect a lot of art to be deviant but what is mainly featured is far from it. Maybe it's just like all those music award shows where popular brainless consumption music gets rewarded for being uhm the best.

Yeah I often look at favorite folders from artists I like. I think that all the treasure is there to find. :)

Haha yes I completely know what you mean :) Well I had a DD years ago sanderjansen.deviantart.com/ar… but I think it didn't deserve it (and hoped it would give me some exposure on my pencil work) but seeing all the popular stuff I know why it got one. :D

DD are a mystery to me, but you do deserve one!

If anyone ever deserved a DD, it was you.  But in the overall scheme, what does it matter?  I see people with no talent getting them, and people with little talent getting them over and over.  DD's are a popularity contest.  It depends on who knows who and who tells who.  

Rest easy in knowing that those of us who DO see your work know the amazing quality and the artistic ability of the one drawing it.  Keep US happy.  lol  Share your wonderful work with us, although I know it gets frustrating at times.  

Personally, I adore your work, and you.  For what that's worth...

That's so kind of you! :hug: Well it's like creating a lot of art and getting nowhere or sell anything. If you play in a band and everyone says it's good but never buy an album or go to the gigs it can work the opposite way. Partly my own fault because I like to create not to annoy people with begging to buy something. Not really about the money but I like when someone wants to hang my art and respect it by paying something for the effort.

I will try to keep you all happy! I probably do less art and learn something else or something which can generate some income or more changes for a job.

Thanks! You adore me? That's worth a lot :D

DDs are overrated pats on the back. I've never understood the importance placed on them. They garner absolutely nothing but more people wanting attention for themselves. People who think the world opens up for people who recieve Daily Ds are dillusional. They are forgettable fancies.

I've been where you're at, man. I've set some fires of my own. The process feels good, purging. But afterwards: regret for lost art. I have a lot of it. Store it away if you can't look at it. 

And trust me, dude, I'm not making shit, money-wise. I don't give up because, if I did, I may as well just dig a hole and lie in it. Fuck that noise.

Well they give you extra exposure and more people discover you I think. But yes I know it will not open the world.

Only executed some unfinished failures but didn't start a big fire yet. I know I will regret and my art are like my babies only they don't scream that much (maybe in my imagination). Well I did hang them on my walls so something happens to them instead of eating dust and maybe a visitor is interested...

Sorry to hear that :( And yes I also keep on going but maybe on lower scale or something completely different. Frustration...part of being an "artist" I guess.

Thanks for your insight!

OK don't do this : "I want to throw all my art on a pile and set in on fire and delete everything and act like nothing ever happened."


But go right out and do this : "Pick up my bass guitar start a new band and play for a crate of beer."

I could go on a long rant about the crap that gets DD on here, whoever picks them are usually a bunch of pseudo-intellectual twenty-somethings who think that tits are profound if they are depicted as being "beautiful" or some other pseudo-intellectual crap like crying rants on depression or being gay. Or it's Disney princesses in one form or another, or it's that one mod who always picks Furry images for some reason. There are some good ones though now and again. But yeah, don't feel bad if the douchebags who run this site don't pick you (I have no qualms referring to them this way; I would have LOVED to leave this site because I really loathe it, but trouble is that most artists on the internet post their work first and foremost here, and if I don't come here, I miss out on a lot of art I do like, like yours).

Anyway look turns out I did rant after all. I really love your art so don't throw it in a fire like some angsty teenager.

If you're a beautiful girl and post a selfie you have a big change. Manga/anime is so popular and I don't get it because it's copying someone's style in my opinion. I don't see what's "Deviant" about it.

Haha I always tried to contain myself not ranting about it but somehow it got out. I wont because they're like my babies. :P Thank you! :D

Why don't they just make this into a porn site and make a different site for legitimate art... you're the kind of artist who should be featured, not them.

But I must say in all honesty, that I'm very glad that I never actually did burn it all, and I'll sincerely hope neither will you! Beste Sander als je muziek wil maken prima....maar blijf alsjeblieft ook van die mooie, aparte, maffe, grappige, ontroerende en weet ik niet wat tekeningen maken.

It's the doubt monster. And I don't mean that metaphorically. I can't tell you how may times I've come within an inch of going out into the desert to feed a giant bonfire with all the artwork I've created over the years.

DON'T DO IT!!! Sometimes not getting recognized is a sign that your work is actually worth a damn. And seriously, if your music is anything like your visual style you should go for it. The world needs to be reminded that it is absurd! Never give up!

Yeah it will probably feel like being free or something. The creativity is starting to feel like a burden sometimes, and people saying my art is great feels like people saying to a band your music is great but never show up on a gig or buy an album...It's like a paradox.

I wont do it because I can't. Didn't look at it that way...

I will keep on going, not sure why but I just need to create something to feel alive.

Thanks for your reply! :D

I probably can't destroy it because it's like erasing my past or who I am or something. But the artistic depression I tried to push away for a very long time is kind of getting closer and closer. Maybe a long break and start making music would do the trick. Strange thing is that I played music for 9 years and after that almost didn't play for years. Probably time to switch back again.

In my opinion  about half the DD's are popularity contests.. there are some outstanding works that well deserve getting them.. but a lot of that stuff I see every day is crap...dont let that bother you..your stuff is good!

Thanks for the reply! Well I don't create art for a DD but because it needs to get out and I like to create. But some recognition would be nice. I got a DD one time for a watercolored work which I completely don't understand why. But I think you're right about the popularity contests.
