Hiya i'm relatively new here as in, i dont post much of my work anymore
But i'm starting to wonder what happened to conceptart.org .
Lately i'm beginning to see mr. Manley's point of the sugar coated lovin' more and more. Even if people ask for crits, most of the time chances are you won't get them.
I'm starting to feel out of place here, i won't pretend i'm a great drawer/painter-- i'm not -- but i just don't enjoy looking at comments which just say "i don't like it, you suck", or even worse, i have spotted some people who don't post anything else then " I likez it! total shitz yo! bitcsh! you is greatest! eastcoast yah!" - or something to that effect.
This takes part (well, ok, a lot) of the fun away i had in browsing this forum.
I mean, look at this thread for instance:
Great artwork, but most people reacted like, "i dont believe you're 14! liar! i hate you!" I mean, how old is everyone anyway..judging from the reactions in that thread, we're all older then 14, so stop being so childish.
At a given point in that thread, someone (happeh) posted the illuster worst-post ever.
Just go read for yourself. It's halfway in the thread.
Why would someone make a comment like that? It's insulting, i think he tried to be funny, go try somewhere else. This forum is about art, not about making fun at the expense of other people.
(try eatpoo.com, if you're interested.)
Soo, to wrap it up, what happened to usefull posts on CA?
PS. The only place where the magic is still happening are the life drawing, daily sketchbook and selfportrait threads, except some juicy nuggets of silver ( i don't like gold) in the other areas.
PPS. Don't say to me that i have no right to make a statement like this, even thought my drawings are below noob level, doesn't mean i'm stupid.
Sorry, i just needed to rant and blow off some steam about stuff like this.
Feel free to delete it.
PPPS. I hope i get my point across, i'm bad with words, and my english is even worse.
