If you ever had a muse/guide/preferred face/model through your artistic way, you may know how important and encouraging feedback could be.
I was very disappointed in Deviantart for a while - this haven't changed - because I think Deviantart is more usable for some kind of specific artists, like manga artists, comic style artists, digital
fantasy artists, and of course, for the crafters.
I mean, it's extremely rare here to see a real original piece. I don't think this is the right place for that.
I don't wanna suggest directly my arts to this subject, but I feel like an outsider. I feel that most of the time, I'm an outsider.
Is it good to say this as an artist? I don't think being an outsider is a bad thing but it's a very lonely thing. Especially if you're an outsider in every stage of your life.
It would be amazing if we have a communicative place for original art or for not-mainstream art.
I don't feel like I wanna draw manga, or create the 1547th similar character to have the admiration of huge crowds.
You may ask, having 2 models for portraits supposes better art?
I think it's impossible to answer because art is totally subjective.
The problem is, these "mainstream" artists degrade the value of original artists with their low commission fees and their flooding with mainstream art.
At least, they can reach their goals in this site having various features, but this pulls original artists out from here.
There are many bad feelings in me about this site, but I guess I will continue to upload my works here too, using this as another gallery.
Also, to mention a good thing in all, I can say now, that my portraits were/are seen by my models. That is a very good feeling, what warms my heart, what defines better the summary of my art.
I've got very encouraging and nice feedbacks from the models I draw and this means a lot to me.
You will know why, if you'll read the summary of my art.
