Spectrophobia by tetraphobia Spectrophobia by tetraphobia
Follow suit, shake your head
Tell me that is a lie.
I don’t want you for dead
But I want you to die.

Stupidly old. Supposed to be my version of one of Magritte's paintings. Not meant to be taken seriously. In fact, don't expect anything serious coming from me in here anytime soon, I simply can't seem to stand DA anymore and I can hardly draw as of late. It's all getting worse and worse. And this time, it's "a worse that feels too big".

se você deixar o dA, vai ser very very sad. o_o
Eu particularmente nem apareço muito pelo dA, mas quando eu faço e vejo teus desenhos :/ eu fico super 'yay', porque eu acho todos eles lindos e expressivos, e teu estilo é muito bonito e sua arte é basicamente algo que marca minha memória. Não sei quantas vezes na escola eu já comentei sobre "a menina no dA que desenha awesome stuff". Eu desenho fanarts, praticamente, mas porque eu realmente gosto de desenhar fanarts e não sei se meus OCs seriam bem aceitos. xD ê vida.

MAS ENFIM, quanto a esse desenho, eu achei ele muito, muito pretty. ._. pretty sad. Eu gostei da postura delas e do rosto, de como as duas parecem doentes e desanimadas. Mas, ainda assim, achei muito bonito mesmo, porque seus desenhos sao inevitavelmente bonitos.

Todos os comentários do tipo que eu recebo me deixam sinceramente surpresa, porque eu não imaginava que alguém admirasse o que eu faço ou tivesse tanto afeto pelos meus desenhos em si. Aliás, nunca imaginei que alguém aqui fosse sentir minha falta, pra início de conversa. Mas então, eu não estou realmente deixando o DA, até porque não conseguiria abrir mão desta conta graças, justamente, aos comentários realmente interessados de algumas pessoas, que fazem uma grande diferença pra mim. Eu não quero desistir de tudo que eu vivenciei aqui no DA, porque por um tempo, foi algo essencialmente positivo. Mas atualmente as coisas tomaram outro rumo e quase não me resta respeito por essa comunidade.

Quando digo que me incomoda o grande número de artistas que só fazem fanart e que só esperam encontrar fanart por aqui, não é que eu tenha algo CONTRA fanart. Eu faço fanart e, aliás, admiro muitas obras que SÃO fanarts (muitas MESMO). O que me incomoda é a grande comunidade que só desenha mangá, só pensa em mangá, só quer saber de mangá e não busca encontrar o próprio estilo, não se interessa pela evolução da arte em si; muitos sequer respeitam artistas que não desenham mangá ou que têm um estilo incomum, só querem ver um desenho "kawaii" e botar no trigésimo nono group "EU AMO HETALIA" ou coisa parecida. Infelizmente, boa parte dos membros do DA atualmente são pessoas que estão mais interessadas em favs/comments/llamas/groups de mangá do que qualquer outra coisa. Virou uma rede social que preza popularidade. Isso me incomoda terrivelmente. Mas é evidente que há nesse universo algumas pessoas que se importam com arte em si e que entram aqui diariamente para conhecer novos artistas e encontrar inspiração. O grande problema é ser essa uma pseudo-minoria.

Mas eu agradeço o apoio, really. E agradeço também pelo comentário acerca do desenho. (:

Adorei seu trabalho nesse desenho :3
Queria me dedicar tanto nos meus desenho como vc.. mas ando muito desanimada comigo para fazer isso.. ficou muito bem pintado e editado <3

As pinturas do Magritte são muito legais ~~ Surrealismo é algo que eu quero mostrar em alguns trabalhos meus x,D mas acho q vai demorar...e muito para consegui pegar a 'técnica'


n sei se entendi ao certo..sou uma tonta D,x Mas espero que vc melhore :) ..E sobre o dA...é,ele mudou muito : (

Eu ando desanimada até pra ficar de pé durante o dia. Não tenho conseguido iniciar nada. Por acaso achei esse desenho muito antigo e semi-pronto e só terminei de editá-lo para postar. Mas é o máximo que consigo atualmente. Sem contar que não pretendo mais postar nada de muito importante no DA, porque esse site se tornou desagradável e desestimulante.

Surrealismo é muito pouco valorizado. Muitos dos trabalhos são realmente pouco carregados significado e se tornam quase kitsch. Mas tem certos surrealistas que mereciam mais reconhecimento. Gosto do conceito por detrás do movimento, na verdade.

E obrigada.

Well... I don't know much about all that poplarity contest stuff (maybe because I'm not in DA for that long, or 'cause I just ignore it) but if it makes you feel better, the picture is beautiful =D
The simpleness of the lines, the beautiful use of the textures, the subtle contrast between the two sides of the looking glass and the atmosphere that was created. I mean, I really like it. ^^

Well, I've been in DA for 4 years, so yeah. I think I'm done with it.
But thank you very much. (:

sick addition, and I really dig how you made both characters pretty sickly looking

i've gotta agree with you on the topic of DA'a shittyness, the art community here is pathetic. I get more comments when I upload my pictures on facebook, and I get the feeling that most of the members here are just a bunch of little kids that are only interested in fanart

Well in case you leave DA, it was a pleasure knowing such a dedicated and progressive artist

Precisely. And nowadays there's always someone pointing fingers and someone being pointed at, people seem to believe that in this community they are either plagiarizing someone or having their work plagiarized instead; no one can develop one's own style without being called a copycat or being thoroughly ignored for being "unusual". Honestly, it's turned into a popularity contest of sorts and no one really seems to come in here for the art pieces any more. They just come to get llamas and page views and pointless favs/comments from people they don't know. As if that made you special or important somehow - enough to mistreat others and act superior, on some cases. God, they're not even glad someone appreciates their efforts, they just care about the sum of numbers. It's tiring, for this way all we get to see in here is fanart (because it's so popular, right?) and anime-styled pictures (nothing wrong with that, but it just seems like no one is even trying to develop their own lines and styles, they're just doing it like everyone else 'cause it's so much easier to get recognition that way from the anime fandom). Sometimes I think we even feel obligated to follow certain patterns and trends, as if we were forbidden to evolve or change or enjoy something else besides anime and BL and j-rock. Not to mention those groups for every little stupid thing just so you can get more views, more favs, more numbers.

DA is not inspiring artists anymore, it's no longer stimulating improvement whatsoever. That's what bothers me the most. I feel like I'm surrounded by otakus that just want me to draw Hetalia fanart or yaoi/yuri pieces and give them a deviantwatch. It's all so very stereotyped and self-centered and immature. I can't stand it. Of course that are people above all that, there really are and I admire them deeply. But as for the overwhelming majority... Sigh.

I don't believe I'll ever leave DA for good, as there are indeed some people I look up to and I like to keep up with their work and follow their improvement. Also, all along my time in here I did come to meet people who were honestly interested in my drawings and who made insightful comments on some of my pieces, so I appreciate that and I can't really give it all up. But I'm definitely taking some time away from here, at least regarding my "serious" pieces. I just don't want to put a lot of effort into something that will end up half-forgotten or will turn into mere statistics once I upload it here. It's degrading.

But thank you very much for your support and I'm sorry I wrote so much. It's just a huge relief to find someone who can actually understand where I'm coming from and accept it. And I don't mean to necessarily agree with me, but to discuss it and take it in consideration. 'Cause you see, I wrote that I can hardly stand DA's art community anymore and suddenly no one wants to comment on this piece at all - except for two or three people. Ha, funny, isn't it?

I would respond back to every point you made, agreeing and expanding on all these depressing realities about the deviantart community, but I don't want your piece of art to be bloated with text responses that are not relevant to the piece itself.

Im glad you also stay here for the same reason I do, because for every 10 children interested in getting the largest amount of llama badges and favorites from random people, there is one who is a truly respectable and progressive artist. Even if I have to sift through hundreds of popularity-chasing teenagers, I would have to say it is always worth it when I find someone who is actually interesting in progressing and evolving their own unique art style.

Rest assured, I will always be following whatever artworks you put up, and be there to critique and offer some legitimate art opinions as to the progression of your art.
