Yeah just a few things I'v come to conclusion to...
Ya know, I honestly don't think kids should be artist. Well no, what I mean is I don't think kids shouldn't be on DeviantART. I personally think so because it doesn't seem to do any good. I really think that they should bring the age requirement up for DA to like 22 or something personally. It just seems like kids here cause way to much trouble. Drama, bad art/Bases, things just getting to personal, to many arguments, at time suicides, just to many stuff. And it always seems to be with teenagers and stuff. This is DeviantART, not Facebook I think to myself sometimes. Things are getting way to social to me. I won't excuse myself out of this whole equation either since I'v been known to stir up a l'il trouble at times, but that's neither here nor there.
But I can't say its all teens here on DA. And by that I mean that there are few (oh so very few) teens that I'v come across on DA that seem incredibly professional, and even because of that have become quite popular and even in a short amount of time. (*Just mentioning this but I remember running into one girl's account, she was 15 years old, been on DA for only one year, and had like 1900+ watchers! Was an awesome artist too. Just for example.)
Wish I had started off like her. Shes a good example. But yeah.
But also at the same time I'v seen way to much instances were I'v seen grown ass men just drawing half assed pictures and calling it art, or just overly obsessed with some fan thingy and aint even got the art to back it up. (*'Nother Deviant I ran into..Just LOVED princess peach and acted as she was real! Said she was his irl girlfriend. Had crappy art too, and was like 20'somethin'.)
But even still, at least he knew better than causing drama as it seemed.
I don't know, that's just how I feel, cause I'm kinda sick of either hearing self righteous teens or dumb kids just doing dumb stuff. But hey, who hasn't been there so no reason to get to mad over it I guess.
Thats why I personally envy some of my friends on DA. Some just off the top of my head like and . These two, as far as I'v seen have absolutely no drama really. Chain friendly with most everyone, and really doesn't let the shit talkers get to him..and no I don't mean like he puts people in they place or nothin' like that. I mean it literally seems that none of the bullshit flies his way even when its there. And Ni, Just an even overly nice guy and doesn't seem to have any BS formulating around him to begin with. I personally don't know how they do it, but I envy it. I do.
Its the few people like them that almost makes me take back what I said before about the whole teens and everything. 'Almost'. But still, I personally that the internet in general is not for emotional, self conscious teens.
Also another thing I don't like. The fake people and assholes.
Maybe your wondering how the two correlate. There are just people here that seem to fake. I mean I don't like how social things are here as it is, but since that can't be helped at all, can't we all just agree to stop being fake and being assholes? I mean for the fake ones, honesty is truly fading. I mean fakeness just gases people up. Actually when I think about it, I mean this for all instances, including real life. I remember talking to my dad, he likes to talk a lot! And even though it sometimes hard to take in everything he says at one I do catch some pretty important stuff. He tells me that things back in his day were waaaay different. I could spend this time describing it but I don't wanna bore anyone. But he pretty much says how people back then were alot more real, and in turn were not nearly as soft as teens and people and general are now. And I'm just thinking..when did my generation become full of pussies? From what my dad said, back then almost everything was real, in turn, people were just had to be harder. I don't know, I guess I just don't like how things are now I guess, people are to soft, sad, and depressed now'a days. Its like people don't know how to just say, "yo, shit happens, but lets just moving forward." and call that a day. Now its just, "Oh man, this person doesn't like me, this person said something mean to me, these people are bullying me." And I'm just thinking, what the hell are you going through to act like that, back then people went through way worse and just say that's there life, wake up the next day, and have big grin on there face. Even now for some people, say, like in more unfortunate countries. And I respect the hell out of them.
But again, I don't exclude myself. I'v had some weak moments, and in a since I blame my mother for that. She kinda does me a disservice, shes overly sheltering, while my father on the other hand is completely on the other side. Which why I'm glad I have him to man me out. (*Just a personal note, I know if he wasn't in my life, or something I know I probably would have been way more feminine or possibly gay or something' like that, and I know this because of most of the males on my mothers side, that are around my age or are of my generations are just...ugh..) But again, that's neither here nor there.
And ass for the assholes, I will give you this, most of the time you guys be one of the most truthful mo fos I'v ever seen (lol). But Im just gonna keep this short and say this. People like me, reasonable people, we appreciate the the honesty. We do. And your opinions, we respect'em. We do. Its just, well you guys are called assholes for a reason. And just know that back when, a lot of people have lost there lives acting like an asshole. I mean I can handle an asshole in real life, that's one thing. But I just hate to see the assholes online just talk freely and think there bad ass just because there hitting keys or saying whatever and just knowing that no one can get them for it. There's a difference between being 'Real' and being an 'Asshole.
But again, I'v had my moments. But this is were I do exclude myself, cause I might be an ass at times, but mostly those are for fun reasons like right out, I just might try to fit in or just play my role. But I don't even go to some lanks. Somewhat like some old friends I had here on DA.
But whateves I guess. Its some of this stuff why I don't have a Skype anymore.
To be honest the only reason I'm still on DA is for 2 reasons. The fact that I owe some artworks and because I really don't wanna give up on my 'ENDeviant' comic.
I know my opinion doesn't really mean much to anyone. I'm just another voice drowned by many others. I mean, I probably said a few things that yall don't agree with and feel free to comment. Really I'm just typing cause I'm bored. I'm just listening to my music and chilling right now. Y'all could pretty much ignore this.
As for me, I'm starting to get a lil more serious. I see I got my flaws as well. I plan to fix myself. I'v been a l'il fake as well. But yeah, that gonna change, especially now that school is starting back up. Yay, I'ma be a sophomore! haha.
Anyway. I don't really expect anyone to read all of this led alone comment. But whatever.
