My biggest pet peeve on this site is people saying "there's so much more art that deserves exposure!!". There's a lot of art in this world, literally everyone and anyone has the capability to be and probably is an artist. That's a lot of people. A lot of people who probably do work very hard and have incredible skill who should indeed get more love. But you know what, that's life. It's a sad truth that, no, not every great artist will be in the spotlight. In fact, most of them will not. That's that. But does that mean you have to look to does who have gained a minimal time in the spotlight to tell them they aren't good enough? That they aren't as good as others and therefor don't deserve any kind of recognition? No, it doesn't. It's rude and unneeded. I don't mean to rant at you, personally, but my God does it get old. Y'all are a bunch a whiners, sheesh. Now I gotta pick at your criticism, too. Nothing personal, just it bugs the heck outta me. Art is experimentation. Not everything someone creates has to follow the rules. They generally should, because rules are made to create good composition and match people's expectations and desires; they don't have to, though. It's fun to screw around and just have fun, to break all the rules you know or maybe don't know and see what happens. I love how the noise in this photo makes the person blend into the background, while it does make the image fuzzy it highlights the color and the shame I assume our artist was attempting to achieve. It's not perfect, but it works for me. And goodness, originality is far from a criticism. Fanart is incredibly popular, it takes characters and experiments with them or maybe doesn't and just has fun with something someone's passionate about. Just because these tattoos are mainly Simpson characters does not make it a lesser work. This guy's friggin' passionate as hell about the Simpsons to be willing to mark his body with the characters. It will last his life, if he keeps them that long. That's love and perhaps that's equally shame. Homing in on the fact these are not original characters is not a valid criticism, it's a misconception that originality is simply creating "your own" thing. Most people's original works are inspired from what they love, based on other characters they've seen. What's the real original difference between a character inspired from the Simpsons and a Simpson's character? If you think the tattoos are well done, what's it matter if they're "unoriginal"? The moment you turn this around on yourself is the moment you begin to sound selfish. No, you shouldn't leave DevaintArt just because a photo you don't personally agree with has achieved a moment in the spotlight, I truly believe you should take this as inspiration. Inspiration that anyone can be an artist, that everyone (even amateurs!) can gain recognition and grow as artist. You can get better, this photographer can get better, the tattoo artist can get better, and you can all achieve recognition. No, there are no better artist who "deserve" exposure. We're all artists here and we all want a few minutes of fame, sure, but we should also be inspired and inspire each other. Criticize each other, but keep an open mind. Give advice and take it, too. Recommend your favorite artists or even yourself to DailyDeviation awarders and hope for the best. But don't try and break someone down in their happiest moment just because you think they don't "deserve" it.
