Something to say [warning Rant]

2015-04-20 01:59:43 by Killerwolf1020

So some people complain about my females not being "feminine"...I should just get over it right? It’s just some little insignificant comment right? Well I can’t.

I can understand that after drawing males most of the time my females are not that great...but come on people. Just because the gal I draw doesn't have huge breasts, wide hips, and a abnormally thin waist does not make her less of a female. I will not point fingers but please people, stop being so closed minded. I will admit, I am not fit, I have some fat on me, my shoulders are wider than an average girl and I have a less then large butt. I am not the "ideal" shape of a woman. I am not feminine and do not have to be. So why should I make my girls feminine. Why do you stupid, closed minded people seem to need to have the ideal body type drawn for it to be feminine. I am just going to ignore all posts about my girl character's needing to be more “feminine " and if possible, report it because it's a HUGE insult to me. I am not feminine, I do not have to be feminine, and I do NOT have to make MY drawings of MY characters feminine unless I want to. So please. Do not come about and say "It just doesn't look feminine”

Please instead, maybe offer "her hips could look a little wider, or arch the back more as a woman's back curves more than a males." Know your anatomy before you come whining about how I draw it. I am not perfect in it, but I do know something about it. I make mistakes, yes, I will fix them if they are bad enough. But please, if you have the incessant NEED to whine about a "not-femmy" character, be sure to get your words well thought out.

 

I am sorry about the rant, but this is the ONLY site where I get rude, one sentence (or one word) comments like "ew" or "you can't draw girls well can you" or "you need to work more on your female bodies".

 

Excuse me for saying, but the stupid, annoying, drama-infested fandom of Fur jerks are better company than some of you basement dwelling critique-a-holics that think that it's their job to tell someone what's girly or not.

 

One day I might just not post stuff here anymore and go to places where people can actually give helpful critiques. And by that I mean giving advice to help, not just "it look's pasted on over the body" or "it could look more feminine".

Peace out

P.S. Sorry for harsh language, but this really hurts to be told that something need's to be more feminine coming from someone who doesn't want to be feminine or considered feminine, and having one of my characters that is supposed to represent a part of me needing to be more feminine is kind of hurtful. And just an FYI, Hallow, the character being accused of not being feminine is supposed to represent a part of me.

My respect to you for writing this. The ideal of femininity just isn't there, and breeds an image of women that blinds people to what the individual person is like.

That being said, I'm going to go look at your art.

Killerwolf1020 responds:

I have no problem with people liking big breasted women or curvy hips. I like them a bit myself, but to ask people to change and conform to a specific type of body figure, that's just going too far.

Thank you for giving my at some time. I don't mind if people don't like it, I just mind if they come out and hate on it just because it's "not their cup of tea"

I think you're expecting too much from the reviews here, by and large they are useless though you do get to mark them as such if you wish and if you find any particularly abusive you can report that too.

Taking a gander at your work it looks to me like your characters lean more towards people in fursuits then cartoons with exaggerated features, this might not conform to what the majority audience here prefers accounting for some of the off hand negative feedback you're getting.

Killerwolf1020 responds:

It may lean more towards furries, but that doesn't make it "not art" or make my effort in drawing the image a waste of time (which is what they try to hit at while slightly mentioning that they hate furs). So while the audience may not all be wanting to see it, they do have the option of moving on without saying a word.

Though I do seem to think that people here, the audience, want slutty little girls or huge breasted and ass wiggling divas that they could stare without getting their titanic double chins slapped.

If they hate fur art, they can just go on to their little girls.

Unfortunately, that's how most of world works and likes to think. Not that agree with it, anyway. It's all a matter of preference and you have to remember, while this site is "Everything, by Everyone" it's a lot compose by a lot of (no offense guys, even I am guilty of this. *Working on it too*) perverts. And that ranges from both the furry side all the way to...well, whatever side is there (forgive me, I don't know all).
Anyway, don't let people like that and trolls get onto you about that. And I know just a few kind words and that advice won't make the troll comments go away, you have ask yourself "What have they contributed to the community?" And the answer to that is "Nothing". And if they have, then they're not what you would call an artist since they actually help and critique.

God Bless You with your future works. :)

Killerwolf1020 responds:

Thank you for the response. It is unfortunate that so many are trolls out there and I do not draw a lot of human art (and if I did, they would probably be mostly male XP) so my "furry" art kind of stands out and I know not many people like it but I also know that there are some people on here that like it. I mean, there is child porn on here (or at least stuff that is close to it while some will claim that it's not) and people get off to young anime girls getting pregnant. So I try to say, it's art, it's beautiful drawn, and I can look past the content of the picture in order to see the effort the artist put into the image.
