Hi there, Haven't updated my journal in a while, I hope everyone is alright and live a happy life.
Let's me get straight to the point. sorry If my remaining ego have driven me to type something stupid, But at least I'm being honest to you, I also wanted to practice writing long essay in English too.
I'm always open for your critique and suggestion, But please write it in a respectful manner.
My own feeling about using anime in my art, you might notice that I always use shape and form of anime in most of my artworks, But my inner side always tells me that I don't have that much interest in it, I like to go to art museum instead of anime convention, I like to watch cartoon more than watching anime, I like to read aesthetic/philosophy and other books more than manga or doujin, [forget about video games, I've decided to quit it, cold freaking turkey] my only activity related to game is listening to games music/bgm.
But nevertheless, The main form/shape and object in my artworks are always related to anime. because I still like using it the most. compared to cartoon/realistic/ or other art styles.
I don't know, maybe my main purpose about using anime is just for fine art, while many skilled people might think about using it for other purpose [Yet I still need to use it to earn money to keep my stomach full and healthy, so I can produce good works, But I always believe that my main purpose is still for brightening the world, cheering up sad people, not mainly for other purpose at this moment.] this might be why some people who tend to dislike anime so much still have minor interest in some of my anime art.
I always read and study about art to improve my aesthetic skills and the way I view art and the world around me, my inner side have spoken that craftsmanship skills is not my main priority, My anime works might looks out of proportion in the eyes of beginner and professional, but I always believe to follow my feeling instead of following the rule that makes everything look correct and perfect, Which will lead to depression and make my art look like it has no mystic.
I tended to be a competitive people before and I've competed with myself all the time, But in the end I've realized that competition in art will only lead to depression and ruin my artwork, so I've stopped competing with anyone, even with myself, me and the other me have decided to cooperate with each other instead of competing, I've stopped comparing my new work with my old works, we have helped each other and then created this picture together.
[A work of friendship maybe, lol I dont know, I didn't watch MLP that much, my favorite type of cartoon is Superjail]
If you see it using your aesthetic feeling, you might see a lot of happiness, which expresses freedom and joyfulness, I cannot express this at all if I were still feel competitive.
I believe that art is like a mirror that reflect your own self, Showing your feeling and story which is going on in your head, even if you try to lie or distort it, Your art will speak for itself, And it will always speak the truth.
I want to hear some opinions from other people mainly in anime art and the way you think about art maybe, because I feel like I haven't communicate with people that much.
