Critiques

My critiques on other people's artwork. You can read my opinions on the details and feelings from the art I usually see.

I think Eric Schwartz says it best. I'm kind of going through an art crisis. The reason is because I feel like my characters are rip offs of other characters, or that I am just rehashing stories and characters. I feel like the Dane Cook of furries now...

To be honest... I never even thought of what I was doing being done before. In fact, I was having fun until I started comparing my work to other works. Hell, I wasn't even thinking of other characters when roleplaying as my characters. But now that I have seen other artworks and mediums, I am starting to feel different about my characters. My counselor tells me that at my age, it's OK if I am not original. Many artists are said to have learned from others works, such as Andy Warhol. He got popular and all he did was recreate newspaper pictures and soup labels.

Have I lost my touch? Am I unable to create anything original? Well, to be honest, the problem was much worse when I was younger, like near late Elementary to Middle School. The stories I came up with were ripped off completely... and whatever I didn't rip off was terrible. XD I cringe at the thought of it.

Maybe the reason why I am making such a big deal is because I'm kind of hipster-ish. It's like I want to do something ahead of the curve or never done before, when really, it has been done before or everybody else is doing it. I want to consider myself original, when in truth, I don't think my work is much new or original than the next guy.

I dunno if I will give up on this RP and character/comics thing. I really want to pursue both as I'm really good at both and I have fun with both. I may have to kill off one or more characters though... I dunno.

Welcome to my page. I am Anthony, a cartoonist with an interest in furries. I am a Cancer, a moonchild and a son of Crab City, Baltimore. I was born under a full moon, and I am all lunatic.

I take interest in pop culture, whether I like it or not. Not only that, but I take myself as a hipster, only interested in the non-mainstream rock and music, as well as retro style and logo t-shirts.

Thank you for visiting my page.

(MEME) We Three Kens by Tony-Akita
(MEME) We Three Kens
In response to the OC meme: fav.me/d8ts99u

My sister Dreamsel requested Ken doing #.9 (Three expressions)

Like I said, it has been a while since I drew Ken. Now I get to draw him three times! I had fun thinking of his expressions. I like the first and third ones best. You be the judge of the first one.

There are still two slots available. Please comment on my journal and your requests may be answered!

This is just my ruse from insecurity... by Tony-Akita
This is just my ruse from insecurity...
"But I like it."

I have been meaning to draw Jenny in glasses... because I wanted to see how she looks in it.
I also felt like drawing some converse boots... because I wanted to see how she looks in it.

So is this Jenny's new outfit? It sure fits the Scorpio personality to me.
