Spoiler alert: Hardcore ranting and opinions you might or might not agree with.

I’ve been thinking about this topic for quite a while, and I  feel the need to just throw some stuff out there, and see what other people have to say and believe about this.

I see artists that create stunning pictures, and put a huge amount of effort in them, but never get any recognition, because they are not popular enough.
On the other hand, I see the so called ‘popular’ ones, get comments and attention on pretty much everything. Which is fine, does not mean they do not work hard as well.

“So what’s the problem?” you may ask. Let me explain:

Being a “popular artist” seems to mean that one can just afford some overpriced tools, or have a certain number of ‘likes’, ‘followers’, ‘watchers’ and whatnot.
To me, it seems a bit unfair.

And I don’t put myself in a position to judge here, I don’t think of myself as a badass-pro artist. Not even close actually. I know I fuck up many things in my drawings, and I actually work hard to improve.
And working hard on stuff that’s barely seen by anybody, while a mediocre drawing with a stripped character is trending, is fuckin annoying.
We all know that no one noticed the soft shading, or the smooth lines. Come on.

Does that sound selfish? Maybe. Don’t think it is though.

I’m trying to understand:
Why does a number have to define how good of an artist anyone is? Getting almost no views on something that will take a shitload of time to make is NOT cool. Does it seem fair to anyone?

That was the ranting. What are your thoughts on the matter? Feel free to discuss.
