I usually (my methods always change) receive the idea, try a couple of sketches, chose one, ink it the scan it and give it a priority (that always depends on the type of picture, motive, etc. ) and then color it.
Way to solve the request problem: deny all requests
Flamers: Report them
Inactive clubs: Make your own?
Popular deviants: I have the most trouble with these... I spend ages wondering why they have close to a gazillion pageviews when they don't draw very well. Yet the artists I respect barely have 2,000 views. But the artists I respect are usually those "quiet" deviants that don't promote themselves so..
Oh yes, sorry if I offended you XD
True, there are some really crappy artists (they know that inflation, Inu Yasha, and pseudo-hentai are the keys to rack up popularity) that have a sh*tload of hits and watchers meanwhile there are some really great artists (like you) that don't have that attention.
And yes..speaking of that pseudo-hentai thing, I just came from an artists page that was like that. Eh...I say quality over quantity though.. I'm not about to start drawing naked chicks really quick-like just to get a few pageviews and watchers.
I'll draw naked chicks slow-like. Nah..if I do draw naked chicks they'll probably be at "another" site made for that kind of thing.
omg, teh avattars r just too much!!
I'd say that they're all pretty much equaly annyoing...
ooh!ooh! wot abour artists who trash their own work even though they put out pretty gewd stuff??
I know that annoys me...that and when people who are under 200lbs complain how fat they are in front of me...
Flamers. Definitely flamers. I mean, yes, constructive criticism, I can get. People who may have different opinions of what good art is, well, that's to be expected, and I myself find some things disturbing that others find good. But flamers are just...hate embodied.
I don't think people have a real reason to be annoyed by your work; you just happen to like Princess Peach a lot. Nothing wrong with that.
I dont like the super popular deviants who are like " OMG~ Stop saying my art reminds you of Chobits or Chii! K??" When they actually do remind you of that..and then theyre all like " Ugh my art sucks so much, ew~" And theyre art totally rocks. It annoys the hell out of me. They have like a gazillion pageviews and they just complain xD!!!! I also hate when i try to post something, and it says "page cannont be displayed". It does that all the time. But im pretty grateful that i have a nice host to post all my art So i can deal with that. I'll just keep getting angry at those ungrateful deviants!
