February is with us...With all of its frigid temperatures (if you live where I live) and hearts and flowers...And such.
I have to wonder....Since it's an appropriate question for this time of year...When people look for fan art of characters, why is it that so much of it centers around relationships/pairings/fetishes/love stories/
I got to thinking about it really. I myself (obviously as seen through my work) admire raunchy pictures done in a grimy way. You know, scantily clad ladies, wonky lookin' dudes and such. My main point is that I find it somewhat strange when that's ALL that someone admires in a character representation. I have found artists that draw...Well frankly nothing but porn. And they do get a rather noticeable amount of traffic flocking around them because of that.
Not that I'm judging, by all means of mannerisms.
It is a weird occurrence. I for one draw a lot of "tribute" pictures, so to speak. A character just being who they are without being put into a predicament. And I admit, I do push some boundaries with how I dress my favorite female characters. What can I say? I typically draw Amy in shorter skirts and skimpier attire. But I'm not turning her into a complete...Uh...You fill in the blank.
Personally, from my view, it seems that people love certain character personalities and traits so much, that fantasizing them into
is just dandy. Extremely fulfilling one could say. And my point is that while I'm okay with that, I am freaked out by those who ONLY draw stuff like that. Kinda like some of those doujinshi artists. They make money off of sex, because well, sex sells. Just like dirty pictures garner lots of views. Heh heh.
I for one want to start portraying the girls in more of a natural manner.
It's just so easy to get carried awaaaaaaaayyyy______
*hack cough hack*
Thoughts fellow entities of curiosity?
On another note. If I get it done on time, there will be some Sonamy Valentine....love showing up on here.
