Draw whatever the hell you want.Alright...Draw whatever the hell you want. by NinjaKato
I'm pretty sure this is going to be a rant (not that I have ever posted those before ) but bear with me because I just... I got to say something about this subject.
"You have a lot of talent and you waste it on drawing stupid dogs!"
"Don't you understand that series is for CHILDREN? You're too old!"
"If you want people to take your work seriously, stop drawing stupid animals!"
"All you draw is cats. Can't you draw anything else? I'm so done with your unoriginal bullshit art."
"Wolves, wolves, wolves. All you ever draw is wolves! BORING!"
"Are we ever going to see anything but shitty cartoon dogs from you?"
I'm sure all of us at some point in our artistic lives have dealt with someone who decided it was a good idea to rag on your choice of artwork subject matter. If not yet, you will... trust me. We ALL go through it.
It's hard enough to deal with it from strangers but it's another thing when it comes from people you know. Family, friends,
Dragon-of-DC, here! For those of you who don't know me, you can call me Amelia. For those of you who really know me, you can call me whatever the heck you'd like. |
Just a little about my characters:
A little piece of me goes into each of my characters when I create them, Dragon being the stronger, more outgoing part of me. She is my main character, and fursona. She's red becuase that's my fHer sister Shamrock (yet to be drawn) is the other half of me, more or less, less outgoing and shameless except when she's with Dragon, quieter and slightly clueless. She can be a bit scatterbrained at times.
Flame, Rag, Gray and Austin alternate as my secondary fursonas, depending what my interest is at the time.
Rag is that quiet, sensitive part of my personality. She's really relaxed and calm with everyone, but does have the tenancy to get annoyed and angry and sad. Gray is nearly the invisible one here. I rarely ever draw her, but she's more like Dragon and Flame, though she's not as bold and outgoing in public or even all that much at home. Austin is sort of a combo--personality wise-- of Rag and Gray. He can be a typical boy sometimes, but he can be quiet, calm, and sensitive. Other times he's angry, annoyed, and sad. He gentle, and he'd never intentionally hurt anyone. These three are my X-Men characters.
Flame, my Halo cat, has her own personality, she's energetic and happy, but she's also now mentally and emotionally off. As an animal she loves people and as a domestic cat she needs attention (it's a cat thing, you cat owners can relate, I'm sure), but she's not obnoxious about it. I'm not going to lie, she kind of reflects my feelings towards certain situations that happen in-game, though on a slightly more elevated scale.
Some about me:
I've been drawing horses well since either kindergarten or preschool, felines since sixth grades and canines since seventh. My horses have come miles over the years, as have my felines (seriously, if you saw the ones from nine-ten years ago, you'd see a huge difference). My canines aren't bad, but they're getting better.
Right now I'm on my way out of high school and planning on becoming a vet in the future.
