So, I'm deep in the countryside right now. I log in with my painfully slow cellphone/router to submit something, which is always a scary process to me. And...
What a monstruous income of unexpected feedback mess-Oh.
Thank you so much for the Daily Deviation! It's so... sudden! And wonderful
I'll reply to everyone as soon as I get back home in a few days.
...seriously, you made my day!
Now, might as well ask a question.
Here's something I've been meaning to ask for a while but I'm oddly shy online and I need to be on an adrenaline rush to do anything here.
We all have favourite subjects. And we all know some themes arouse more interest than others.
How much does acknowledging
this influences you?Have you ever been afraid to embrace subjects you like
but are unpopular outside very specific fandoms or niches? Like unattractive people. Old people. Bugs. Anthropomorphic animals.
Or: Do you avoid "overused" subjects or feel guilty about drawing/painting them?
Do you think the choice of subject matter influences the value of the art? Or the value of the artist?
I need input on this. I really want to discuss this and hear what others have to say. I might use the DA forum too.
Thanks for your attention. Have a great day!
