the only reason your art looks awful to you is because you had an image in your head and the art you created doesnt match it
other people have no image, so when presented with the art you created, they’re usually pretty impressed, because wow you made that out of nothing!! its so cool!!
so next time you want to judge your own art badly try to remember that you’re comparing it to the perfect picture you had in your head as opposed to recognizing that hey u made a thing out of nothing how cool is that
Lot of “That’s wrong so I can’t like it” floating around my dash lately, particularly “That relationship is technically abusive so people shouldn’t ship it.”
Look. For psychological and emotionally complicated reasons I am not even close to qualified enough to explain, something “being wrong” is the reason why people are drawn to and fascinated by a lot of things.
Fiction gives us the opportunity to explore things we would never get the chance to in reality, whether it be sides to the characters within that fiction, or things within ourselves we might only just be figuring out.
Just because we think something troublesome is interesting and worthy of fascination and exploration, or perhaps even titillating and a bit sexy in a certain context, does not mean we condone it in real life.
As long as you’re perfectly aware that something is questionable or wrong, there is absolutely no reason why you should not be allowed to find yourself drawn to it, entertained by it, or interested in it.
Imagine your icon being your sole companion in the zombie apocalypse. They have all the powers they have in the movie/game/show they’re from.
i really hate people who think that “freedom of speech” means “i can be as rude and insulting as i want and you’re not allowed to get mad”
