As an artist, I feel like my art is only being appreciated in the laziest of fashions. I am dumbed down to a “thumbs up” mentality to the public. Imagine in real life, a person walked up to you as you worked and they poked you and give you a thumbs up. How does that make you feel? I’d be like, what the fuck?
If I made a website for artists, I would make it mandatory that comments must be made in order to favourite/like a drawing. Not those lazy, one-worded comments, you’d have to write at least, one full sentence.
Places like deviantART, furaffinity, weasyl, tumblr, facebook are prime examples of how the social portion of art is dead. I can’t tell you how many times I have been faved and runned. I am guilty of doing the same thing and it makes me feel bad. That’s why I hardly visit other art sites, it’s FAR too easy to be lazy about showing your appreciation to your art friends and inspirations.
Please, reblog that picture you like with comments in the tags. Please leave a comment on that picture you saw on dA. Retweet that drawing with a cute comment! Make time to leave your thoughts, make time to show that you did look at something longer than 30 seconds. I don’t want to be THAT person any more and neither should you.
Are we that lazy, are we that busy to not take time to leave a basic, simple comment?
