Okay, something is starting to bug me more and more... Some of these people who call themselves Dark artists, which BTW I don't, you box yourself in enough with that turn of phrase but all the sudden you have to do it all a cretin way or your just some kind of poser. The beauty in art is the difference and imperfection. So much more we turn on each other to judge and assume. Like that airbrushed, tinker bells bloody bastard step sister type is the only acceptable anymore. My own personal phrasing of this style. Everything else is flawed. I honestly wish this was just us as well. Contests and design challenges and such, who have no prior specifications only seam to ever take notice to this style as well. It seams to have become the uniform now. It makes me sad really. I can and have done this work before but to be all that I ever do... how boring is that?
Yes, I give to the point that there are specific technique to things and therefore ways to do them wrong and right, however that judgment only applies to a piece that the artist themselves have chosen to do in this category... Like the world doesn't already try and sub categorize us enough. We have to help. I plead with you, KEEP AN OPEN MIND WHEN LOOKING AT EACH OTHERS WORK and accept the plural, It is, after all, an artists job, dark or otherwise, to challenge the imagination.
