To the 19 of you who voted/said Yes, but I think you're inspired by her
You're all wrong. I'm not and never have been inspired by Vivzmind.
I admit that back in 2011-2012 I USED
to be a fan of her, a regular one in general,
but she's never inspired me or had any type of good influence on my art.
It's not even just her though. What almost nobody knows is that NOBODY in this existence influences or has ever influced my art/style. It is all self-taught, I made it all on my own. Before I even began working on developing my current style/my cartoony style, I actually used to draw more semi-realistic or something less than that but not cartoony at all.
Literally the only reason I started trying to develop a cartoony style AT ALL was because my friends at the time ( wanderdip
), who I'm still friends with now, both had (and still have) cartoony styles of their own and..well, it sorta made me feel left out because mine wasn't, so I then started trying to make my own. And I stuck with it.
I don't mean to sound mean but, to those of you who do believe or think my art/style looks ANYTHING like Vivz;
I'd like for you to know that I, to no end
, I intensely despise
and hate it
whenever someone tells me my art looks like hers.
Whether it be over the smallest of things or my entire style. I fucking hate it.
So PLEASE do NOT tell me that my art looks like hers, or really ANYBODY ELSES.
People tell me this shit so fucking often that I often end up tossing out or selling off possible characters or designs I come up with solely over the fact that I get told they look like and/or SOME HOW look similar to her characters when they don't????? It doesn't matter if I don't see it, I will throw away or sell the character(s) if I'm told that.
It doesn't even have to be her/her art/her characters that my art/style/characters get compared to! It'll upset me regardless if I'm compared to anybody!! It just..unfortunately happens most, or really only with, VivzMind and nobody else yet
I've spent the last couple or so- I think 3- years now working toward creating my own
style. One that DOESN'T look like ANYBODY ELSES or looks like it's ever been influenced by any existing art style(s) and/or artist(s). Because it hasn't, never has been, and never will.
..ugh. I'm done talking now, I guess.
