alright so im thinking about bad memories from like 2 years ago,
throught my weeaboo stage i was drawing with mspaint and a trackpad and i was so happy go lucky and shit
i thought i was pretty good tbh
so i remember i drew hatsune miku and i jokingly put kawaii desu on the top in japanese
i know i was really bad and holy shit, i really put a lot of effort into it
and then i got a comment saying "what the fuck, whats with all that kawaii desu fucking shit, grow up" or something along the lines of that
im probably one of the most paranoid fuckers out there, i hyperventilated and started crying, that comment was on my mind for like half a year, and i stopped drawing for about half a year
i didnt go on deviantart for half a year, i didnt do any art for half a year
i was paranoid about my art for a while
words really hurt, so never ever tell someone directly that their art is shit, because i know from experience that itll cause panic attacks or other things. be mature about shit like that, comments like "stop that kawaii shit, you suck" wont fucking help them improve at all. it makes the artist feel worse about themselves. and comments like that, isnt a fucking critique. its a hurtful insult.
sure they said it was a joke, it still hurts, so they need to fucking be mature about what they say.
yknow i couldve been happier if that person didnt say anything at all, or they wouldve said something mature about it.
tl;dr: dont be a dick to artists about their art, sure they might not be good but fucking consider their feelings. be mature about what you say. if youre gonna harass artists like that, GROW THE FUCK UP. it doesnt make you feel more superior, nor does it make you the bigger man to make fun of people
edit: OH MY GOD IM LAUGHING BECAUSE I FOUND THEM AND LIKE, I THOUGHT THEIR ART WAS AMAZING AT THE TIME NOW ITS REALLY LACKLUSTER HOLY SHIT ITS ALL KAWAII DESU ANIME DESU AND THEY TOLD ME TO STOP BEING A WEEB WOW
