Unpopular Opinions (Art Edition)


23 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I don't know if there's a discussion like this anywhere else but feel free to drop any unpopular opinions here.

I don't know if this is one but: having a nice art style/good art does not excuse the rubbish attitude/behaviour of an artist, even if they have a large following.

What are your unpopular opinions?

Colouring bodyparts like elbows or knees with a slightly reddish/pinkish tone doesn't make it look good but rather somehow makes it appear sexual.

thank you for this thread!

stylized art >>> hyper realism 

everyone can learn do hyper realistic art, given enough patience and time. stylizing things is way harder. (in addition to that, i hate the overly rendered style where everything seems like it's made of plastic...which is what 90% of more popular social media artists, especially fanartists do...ew)

also, I can't stand Ilya Kuvshinov (or however you spell that). homeboy mixed Persona style with over the top rendering and keeps drawing cute girls and somehow people lose their shit over it. yawn, next.

-Andy Warhol is the Jeremy Scott of painters

- Performance art isn't art its just attention seeking

-Marina Abramovic's art is disgusting, repulsive and garbage What a narcissistic creepy woman. I wouldn't let my children be in the same room as her. She has some screws loose.

If you're really good at sketching then I consider you a good artist, line art isn't for everyone and people need to remember that!!!

I follow a lot of independent comic artists and one thing that bothers me is inconsistency in updating their comics. I understand why it happens, and for the most part they have very valid reasons for taking long breaks. Only a few of them have a consistent schedule and usually they're the ones with the most success. I just really wanna see y'all thrive and do your best. I'd pay for Patreon to support if half the artists I follow were at least consistent with their work.

Artists who steal/trace over others work yet still have fame in the art world/ thousands of followers on sms confuse me.  

 

- Performance art isn't art its just attention seeking

 

how is dancing/singing/playing instruments attention seeking?

- This is old milk but when the whole Kun0/NekoTV drama happened, I thought Kun0 must be really cocky thinking he's so great when his art is some basic anime style and lowkey uncanny valley looking. 

- I'm pretty most of those soft pastel semi-realism artists on IG just paint over people's selfies. It becomes really obvious when the face is very detailed but the hair is painted on sloppily.

I absolutely despise those dance studio/professionals accounts i see on Instagram which usually do covers to some obnoxiously loud edm music and just throw their arms and legs around as fast as they can till they dislocate a bone. I am also quite perplexed on how lots of them manage to obtain a huge following when most of times their choreographies are repetitive and predictable.
