I need to talk about the groups on DeviantArt, the Sonic ones.
I don’t like how some of them won’t accept my drawings unless it’s in the same art style as the games, well I think that’s why they decline them. They won’t tell me why, they’ll just flush me and then accept the ones I drew in the “correct” art style.
I can try to understand, I guess they don’t look Sonic enough…? But I don’t draw fan characters, I draw canon characters, it’s not like I was sending them a bunch of furries. I think it’s not fair to be honest, whatever your style is, as long as it’s sonic characters then it should be alright. Why reject it just because it’s different ?
As I said before I am now part of a group, would it be fair from me to decline a drawing just because I didn’t like the way the artist had drawn it ? No it wouldn’t be fair at all.
I’m not ashamed of my art and I like the way I draw them. But I do feel rejected a lot on DeviantArt, and I also feel forced to draw otherwise. I don’t mind drawing in the original style, but what I hate is when I feel forced to.
I don’t know if I’m the only one dealing with such things, but if someone here is having the same issues then I feel you ! And if you wanna talk about it I’m here.
