"I love your artwork! The colors and composition of your style are beautiful. I have a request: Could you please do a drawing of Prince in his Parade era outfit? It's my favorite outfit and album by him. Thanks!"
"When you ask for thoughts from "people" that includes ALL people. Including men and constructive criticism. If you can't take it, then say "what are your thoughts ladies who only have nice things to say?" It would save you from wasting your energy pressing the "block" button on instagram. Still love your work regardless, but you handled that situation like a child."
Uh, you misunderstood that post entirely. The thoughts were for the SINGLET not for the illustration, which I posted the full version of yesterday if you had bothered to check my tumblr or instagram.
Thing is dude, my illustrations do not serve men. I have no interest in serving men. So yes, I blocked you because your comment was rude and unneeded. I can take criticism - in fact I am more than open to criticism of my work, I know I’m far from perfect and I’m still getting better with every passing day - but that was not constructive in any shape or form.
Constructive criticism: “Hey, maybe you should work on your anatomy a bit more, it looks a little weird but you’re getting there!”
Shitty “criticism”: “You work doesn’t appeal to men. Her hips look unrealistic”.
See the difference?
Had you actually not been an asshole, I would’ve engaged in conversation with you. But your comment, as mentioned, was unneeded and extremely unprofessional coming from a page such as yours.
Okay wow I did not intend for this to become a finished drawing at ALL, it just sort of became a landslide and then suddenly it was finished? Oh man, there went my afternoon.
Feel U Up is my favourite Prince song ever, even though it’s only a B-side to Party Man from the Batman Soundtrack/album. And for some reason it reminds me of the Weird Science theme, which made me think of Prince all 80’s-esque nerdy and then this happened.
Edit: Man, I remembered this song better than I thought! Weird Science - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jm-upHSP9KU
If only I could get off my butt and write/draw everything down that it’s my head, haha! Actually the other day when you were explaining your OC story, it inspired me to shift my ass into gear with my own (also they have a similar context which shows how much we love 70s/80’s pop LOL!)
