Rants r' us!

'Cause you know I only use this journal for art postings, random memes, and rants, right? XD

Rant#1:

Re: Anime/manga is not a style or how people should stop using the style.

This deserves its own essay (of which I will work on) but I just want to get something off of my chest.

Shut. The fuck. Up. Seriously. You're pissing me off and that's why this is a rant. *tight smile*

So, there is a similarity between many Japanese artists' styles. And your point is? Like this has NEVER happened before in art history *coughcoughart decocough*. Heavens forbid should a bunch of artist have similar ways of approaching a drawing. Heavens forbid there be a dry patch in an art movement. Yes, I call this an art movement.

Look. People should be able to do whatever the fuck they want when it comes to expressing their creativity. No wait, I'm phrasing this wrong. People should be able to be INFLUENCED in anyway they want to and should be able to face whatever comes with doing so.

So newbs to the art world prefer a specific style? LET THEM. They'll learn from that; they'll make their own style or drop out completely.

So, in closing, shut the fuck up.



Rant #2:

Re: What makes a main character a main character.

Something else that should be an essay but I'll leave that to someone who's more than a literature major than I'll ever be.

I think that when it comes to being a main character it means much more than who has the most lines. I think it means much more than 'who becomes leader.'

It's about who's story we are watching, who's eyes are we watching this from?

There are such things as having two main characters.

Or maybe it's that there are such things as 'focused characters.' To say that the person we are watching the story from isn't a focused character, would be weird in my opinion.


Rant #3it'snotreallyarant.

Re: I reaaaaaaaaly want to play Phoenix Wright.

Like reeeeeeeeeaaly badly. D: It looks so cool, I don't care if I suck at games and barely have money in my account (I gotta start selling prints).

I WANT IT. THE END.


Off to get something to drink. It's 100 degrees here. D:

So... I was all gunna comment on your ranty-ness and then thought about it and decided I'm too lazy...

buuuuuttt as for the Anime/Manga stylistic stuff... it's a problem of narrowed field of vision don't ya' think? People are full of themselves (ahem read: head up their asses) and art they've encountered and liked and decided it is the end all and be all pinnacle of contemporary art / 'popular art'. Da kids like it neh? So they mess with it cuz what kid that likes cartoons doesn't want to be an artist in the back of their heads? They're kids/teens (sometimes immature 20somethings) that are full of themselves and their crappy art and obsession with anime being the only 'cool art' or art that's worth ahem copying style-wise...

Wait what am I saying? Oh yeah people who rant about the greatness of the anime style or whatever are idiots ignore them. ZOMG cartooning with formula drawings that have big eyes and fun hair that is like sooo unlike every other cartooning style in the history of cartooning... ... ... NOT. It's the same as every other cartooning style EVER with extra shiny-s in the eyes and pink and purple hair for no reason, besides the fact that it's intentionally easy to draw so it can be mass produced by hand (frame by frame as it were) and so poorly duplicating or even creating GOOD replicas of the style is not really the height of artistic talent that some people would like to believe... particularly ones who are the same people who will refuse to draw anything besides 'anime style' because it's not their thing (style) and couldn't possibly learn from it *rolls eyes*

Le sigh I said I wasn't going to add to you rant or make this a long comment... guess I lied to myself.

Whatever, these people are gunna grow up and out of it or forget about it when they're stuck in their mundane real world job four years from now...

Here's the moral of the story: people are stupid ignore them, or sabotage their plumbing in the night...

Oh and snatch a DS from someone and play Phoenix Wright people say it rocketh' and while you're at it try Elite Beat Agents or Ouendan it's kickin' >.<

too lazy to log into this account, again.
Actually people were ranting on how OMG!horrible it is when it's really not all that different from the repetitiveness of US-toon style. It's just as annoying as people who think it's the best thing since sliced bread. It's neither. It's just a different approach, damnit! D<

I'm buying a DS off of my cuz! Soon it will be mine! >D

That's cuz all the US companies are ripping the style off lately... mostly without any good script writters (shiver new TMNT)...

Yay! DS games are uber fun ^_^
