asks:
What do you think of the "hug-box"/echo chamber effect that seems to occur within the community towards some artist? Do you think it encourages them, or cause stagnation in the development of many artistes potential?

royaljellysandwich:

This subject can pretty much apply to art in general, not just fatty-wank, but I’ll try to apply it to fatty-wank regardless.

I’m of the mind that an artist’s harshest critic should be him/herself, and I’m quite sure most artists are. I sure as hell am.

Whether an “echo-chamber” environment can be helpful or detrimental to an artist’s personal growth really depends on the artist’s ego.  Praise from fans can be a great motivator, but it’s important that an artist learns to accept criticism. And that can be a problem—especially on the internet, where many people, both artists and non-artists, can have a murky idea of what “criticism” (namely constructive criticism) actually IS.

The words “criticism” and “critical” tend to be perceived as negative things by default as a result.  I can’t count how many times an artist reacts negatively to an abusive or rude comment that offers nothing constructive, only for the offender or some other idiot to strike back with “LEARN 2 TAKE CRITICISM DIPSHIT”.  But on the flipside I also can’t count how many artists react to legitimate criticism with hostility or by blocking the person.

Thing is, we’re a community of creative, emotional, “right-brained” types and we do tend to get over-dramatic, especially a marginalised group like us FAs.  It’s important for us to learn to differentiate between criticism and abuse.

To bring it to a more personal level, one time I was told on Skype by a colleague that he “hates the way I draw fat faces”, but it was someone I knew, so I knew he was giving an honest opinion; he wasn’t being an asshole.  So then I thought, “Well, better get to work on improving fat faces” and as a result I’m much better at drawing fat faces.  See? Personal growth.  But another time I saw my Jubilee comic posted on one of the chan boards and one anon said he likes the subject but “wishes the guy who drew it” (me) “was better”. I admit, that stung a bit, but it was an honest and fair opinion. And then the next anon chimes in with “Yeah, it also doesn’t help that half his stuff is furry shit” and it angered me because it wasn’t criticism, he was just saying I suck because of subject matter he didn’t approve of.

So yeah, praise is good, but echo-chambering leading to artists having delusions of grandeur is bad.

Reblogging because this is important to everyone!

The best part is, this post actually does something, it offers support, unlike one of those useless “reblog if you care” posts.

Exactly. Which is why I’ll reblog this one.
