Like those anthro raptors I drew. Those are probably weird to some people!


I think they're more likely to attack stuff which shows the talent of a turnip and/or images of disturbing sex with characters, or just generally disturbing images. They do showcase somewhat decent art, but there's often a bigger reason to doing so than the quality of the image (just content, mostly). So, you'll probably be quite safe I think.

I meant Godawful, I've never been to CYD long enough to know much. Sorry I didn't make that clear.

Well...I actually did find some art that wasn't that bad posted on there...and it doesn't have any bad content, either. Although two of them for sure are out of proportion.
I think the Goth one is pretty good, myself.

^ Yes, but they probably laugh at it then move on, I think the only time an artist has been remembered is if the work was THAT bad, the artist was a complete screw job or the artist his/herself come to the board to moan, gripe and whinge.

It's a bit elitist to judge amatuer art as 'crap', yes, but it tends to be like Fandom_Wank, forgotten if you don't make a fuss. Or if it does happen, just hold your head up and ask for some concrit, or something. Even then, some members will say the artist has potential or is pretty good BUT... To be honest, I've only seen complete disdain for absolutely horrific art, most posts like that (with rather decent art) are hardly replied to in comparison to others.

I'm not saying you have to like the site, of course, and I do sometimes wonder whether something was godawful enough to be featured, but it's quite a fun place regardless IMO.

That and, if you truly have what it takes, strangers on the Internet wouldn't stop you. *shrug*

I guess you're right on pretty much all those points. But, I don't know...that site just gives me a bad feeling. I just don't like seeing people tear apart people's work like that and hurt their feelings...even if the truth is that the work is awful. I'd rather see them just give them cricticism to improve. Even if there needs to be 10 pages of it... grin

But I guess the site just isn't to my taste. If I want something to laugh at, I'll look up funny videos, jokes, and pictures on Google. wink
