can we please stop doing this to artists? if you like what they did and think it’s beautiful, respect them. don’t do this. it’s so obnoxious and rude and i hate seeing it because i’ve had people do this to me before and it’s a horrible feeling let’s just not do this to artists okay
This is on the same plane as “Your art is so good it makes me want to kill myself/quit drawing.” It’s not a compliment.
Or “I’m so jealous I could NEVER do something like that” or “all I can draw is stick figures aha”
These are not compliments. They are comparisons. Furthermore, you’re comparing me (the artist) to you (not an artist) so it’s like… well yeah, of course. I’m sick of being told over and over again, every time I share my art, “aaah I’m not an artist; I can’t do anything like that”. It sounds like you’re looking for pity. Please don’t make this about you.
