Related to the "Posting You Art Online" video, may I ask what is your take on the "fanart trap" scenario? What I mean by that is mentality of an artist doing fanart not because they want to (and having fun) but have to in order to succeed and/or be popular just for the sake of it.
eh. couldnt care less.
i feel like people make too big of a deal out of these things lmao theyre not hurting anyone? and theyre still making content that people are enjoying?
People are too like…grossed out about people doing shit for success/fame but I dont think theres anything wrong with wanting that. It’s kinda what you need in order to profit off of art. Hard to make money when no one knows you/your work. And fanart is good for that boost.
“MONEY ISNT EVERYTHING LESLIE!!!!” I never said it was but money sure does make life hella easier cuz uh…yknow…rent…bills..food…YKNOW THE BASICS. so we really outta stop shaming people for wanting money and for wanting popularity (again as long as they arent hurting anyone)
IM SURE theres videos of me saying “omg only make fanart if u like it!!!” BUT LIKE opinions change and shit and now I understand that telling people not to draw something cuz theyre not a true fan or whatever is stupid af. fucking do what you gotta do man.
