So I follow a lot of artist blogs and I for one have one rule about artists on tumblr.
If you ever. EVER. complain/whine/moan about another artist because they become popular, I will unfollow you in a heartbeat.
Even if they are young, even if they refuse to take constructive criticism at this point in their lives, even if the art they got popular for is, in your opinion, just a phase.
Maybe they have very little experience with anatomy, or lighting, or composition.
Maybe they haven’t found enough variety in faces or expressions yet. Or haven’t learned exactly how to draw a profile correctly.
That does not ever give you the right to be nasty to them or whine that they don’t deserve the attention. And don’t you even dare elude that they aren’t good artists.
Whatever so called reason for your hatred, I don’t care. The point is that as artists, especially female artists, we need to build each other up instead of tearing into one another over stupid things like popularity.
Because when you do, fellow artists, it makes you look all that much more butthurt.
