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

You have? I will check it as soon as possible. My computer account is really slow and glitchy for some reason, so I use my brother or mom's sometimes, instead. xD
But when I log into my own, I'll answer.

What I did is that I copied a character from a random anime (tracing or simply drawing the best you can) that way you start to be able to draw in that certain anime style

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.

I like the anime style. I keep drawing to try and perfect it. I keep on drawing and drawing and... drawing more.  My husband pointed out I keep on drawing the same kind of things... but... I haven't perfected that yet... of course I'm going to keep drawing it.... That's what I like to draw... that the thing I've been aiming at... *sighs*

One trick my brother showed me on figuring out what is off about your "humans"  turn the picture upside down (or look at it in a mirror) and the flaws will stand out more clearly.  This'll help you pin point what's so "weird" about it. 
You could also share it hear and ask for input (even if you don't ask for a critique)
