So, I love both vickymaus and alythekitten, and don’t want them to get into an argument because they’re both my friends and both are lovely beings, and I know no one wanted to insult the other, but there is a problem between fandom artists that needs to be talked about.
It’s true that it’s a bit unfair to unfold the entire discussion on Aly’s post because that DOES make it look personal, so here’s a solution.
Please use this post - yes, this one right here - to voice your opinion. I don’t mind, I’m neutral in this, reblog it a thousand times with your opinion if you like.
Just to sum it up, the basic problem is that Aly feels disconnected with fandom and fandom artists in general, missing other people’s input and feeling lonely; while Vicky thinks it’s hard for “not so widely known artists” (TM) to find recognition in the shadow of the “bigger names”.
Everything settled? Alright? Remember, this is about ART and FANDOM, not about the persons behind. Please refrain from sending Anon messages to anyone because that doesn’t help at all. Are we clear? Okay, shoot away :-)
(for those who aren’t interested, just blacklist ‘fanart discussion’).
First, thank to Blue that is always so kind and nice with everyone, this is the best solution and I want to personally say thank you, because my blog is a real mess, in the last hour it turned into a total mess, so gonna delete all the reblogs later.
I’m gonna join this conversation with my second account.
In the last months I’ve been disconnected a lot, lost some buddies I used to talk with every day, some are no longer in the fandom or are inactive at the moment (kyuubikun, outosumi joyslash for example), over the fact that they were/are fan artists from the fandom they all are my friends and I unconsciously miss them all.
I know that there are active fan artists in the fandom and vickymaus and miusart are part of them, even drakonizuka and a tons of name I can’t remember right now because it’s 4.00 am here… Some of us started earlier, Kaciart has been here since for even and god knows how many followers she may have now, I’m here since a year and half, soon or later a person will see me in that amount of time, I posted a lot especially last year, I got my “boom” for followers last year and the “boom” of notes recently, but I remember when I got only 14 notes for pic, it was demotivating but I didn’t give up, and you are not giving up, just like me.
I started with some buddies that are no longer in the fandom, or are multifandom and no longer care about this one, I miss them and I remember the old crew, and not for saying “we are better” but I had my best time with them, and Vicky we know each other since months and months and there was a time I remember, we talked a lot… but now we are no longer interacting that much, maybe the fault is mine, university destroyed me this year and I got issues with my thesis, so in case was my fault I say sorry, I didn’t wanted this to happen.
If there is something I can do, we can do I want to do it.
Not sure exactly the situation but I will add this…
In some fandoms I notice a weird tag people use for my stuff like “art by op”
