Anime Artist Meme by DestinyBlue Anime Artist Meme by DestinyBlue
The original meme [link] uses photos but I thought it would be fun to draw pictures :) Haven't seen it done before, but if I know the internet it will have been XD

Yes, this is supposed to be me, I really have bright blue hair permanently, and a lot of my time is spent hunched over my computer XD

Thought this might be of interest some Deviantarters as everyone seems to have different opinions and perceptions of your art. This is a bit of a lighthearted take on the anime side of things :D

When you say 'artist' some people think 'hobo' when you say 'anime' some people think 'porn' There are a lot of different perceptions, some good some bad, all interesting.

I'd be interested to hear if you've experienced any prejudices or odd perceptions of your artwork or of you drawing :)

Edit: heh, didn't expect quite so many people to vibe with this XD
'Anime Artist' was punchier that 'artist who takes influence from the anime style' I've developed a more semi-realistic style recently, but went more classic anime look for this :)
Though of having a 'what real artists think you do' panel XD
It's not a moan, generally people are really interested and supportive even if they haven't heard of anime before, but everyone has pre-conceptions about things and this is just my amusing take on that XD

Well... all that matters is the panel in the bottom center, right?

Congratulations on the Deviousness Award.

my tutorial: (by my own personal experience!)
draw.
draw more.
draw even more.
draw because why not.
draw because this paper is useless otherwise.
draw because I want to see what it looks.
draw just cuz it's fun.
draw until your pencil is out of grafite.
draw until you're run out of all your pencils.
draw until you must ask your doctor about your insanity into drawing all the time.
draw until you make a good enough image.
draw until you make a nice image.
draw until you make a good image.
draw until you say "right, this is a masterpiece of mine!"
draw until people say you're nice at drawing.
draw so people start drawing too.
draw a image you wanted to draw in stage 1 but it was bad.
put your 421th pencil away and take a lemonade.
do something else, you nolife.

what do we learn?

there is no shortcuts in life. Do something, master something.
