((OOC: So this thing happened, where in which I got a highly negative response to my height chart on Derpibooru.
I was upset, sad, unhappy, depressed.
Many assume this was becaue I havea thin skin, that I can’t take it.
This would be a false assumption. There have been many other occasions where reactions like this have happened. On Deviantart, Derpibooru, Ponibooru, the sexist, sizeist, racist comments as far as the eye can see. But I laughed.
I always laughed at them, I never took them to heart, I was alwasy “Pfft, nitwits”.
I was in a darker place of mind with this one for many reasons, because I was getting tired.
I am not a digital artist, never have been, never taken a class on it or anything, I work in pencils and pens, i don’t even own a tablet, never could get the hang of the things, too distant. Pointing and clicking i nsai is easier anyway. But I always knew that if anyone was going to give any sort of comment or critique in anything I did, I owuld have no choice but to colour them digitally becuase no one notices anything you do unless you do digital art. It’s the nature of the beast, it’s certainly the nature of Sethisto.
So these things take a long long time. In the time it takes me to digitally ink and color these things, half of an entire day goes by and I’ve watched entire half seasons or seasons of cartoons and TV series. This Height Chart was no exception, I work hard and I work for a very very long time. My eyes hurt and I’m tired of staring at a computer screen working on one task.
So when I posted this I snapped. The downvotes are unrealistically enormous. There are far worse artists or less detaield artists than me out there who get free passes because the characters look like prettied up busty skin pale anime dolls. Or because they don’t do humanizations because I admittedly am not good at drawing animals, that’s why I decided to do a humanization specialization.
There are many legitimate criticisms in there which, of course, I will take to heart and use to improve my next works, I mean why would I post anything on the internet and then proceed to ignore good and proper critique? It’s illogical.
It’s the hate that really grinds my gears, and the quality disparity among this and other works. So of course I’m angry, but I’m simmering, and dealing with it, life goes on, the internet is stupid, etc, etc, whatever.
But I’m considering a soft reboot. I mean Fluttershy is obviously way too tall, and when you’re a cartoonist exaggeration is always easier than moderation, among other things. So yeah, some things will be taken into consideration. In the meanwhile I have my “Interrogate Navy Sketch” pony blog so I can develop my ability to draw fictional multicolour equines.
For those that couldn’t be bothered to read all that:
I was tired and angry, I am not actually giving up and I am not really letting mean comments get to me, but I might to do a soft reboot and more pony stuff
So, we’ll chat.
