I’m sorry to the people who were following me for that little miss-hap, if it was cluttering your feed. Here have some comics about the matter, as you can tell, I really despise people that trace without giving proper credit. Hey guys, if you want to be artists, for the love of God, save yourselves a lot of trouble, be honest and admit to when you use a reference. There’s nothing to be ashamed of if you do.

I actually recall critiquing it beforehand in a group crit. I remember commenting on slight inaccuricies of your final pieces and inquiring as to where the rest of your drawing development was for your characters. And as I remember: you didn’t improve on anything. I had given you things to improve on and you ignored it and continued to bumble about for the respective last couple of weeks of the project. I had actually made this original post early on in the year, because I was fully aware of all the tracing that had been going on. Actually, I’ve been aware of the tracing since the start of the course, the very first project infact where you traced around photographs of a girl you had taken pictures of.

Ok and did anyone at all take my critique on board? nope, and i don’t care. As for that painting, 2 years ago i copied a stock image, everyone knew that?
My bumbling must have worked because I got the grades i wanted, meanwhile you where and are still angry over it. Anyways have fun with that ~ :)

Are you not listening to anthing I’m saying? We’re talking about you here. I actually did listen to what you had to say, and I tried to build on it. I looked at my time management after you mentioned that I wouldn’t have a lot of time to finish my work and I tried to fit my work into a more condesed time scale, which worked.

I’m not trying to argue here, I’m not mad. My problem is that you will not at all accept that you traced. You know you did it, as do I, as do others. I can accept critisim, I take anything on board, it improves your skill. So why’s it so hard for you to do the same? You know you were wrong but you don’t accept it at all, it’s disgusting.

You know what I never understood? The fact that people sometimes claim to be artists, but immediately when they have to draw a shape that’s too complicated or they can’t be arsed, they pull up a picture off the internet, draw over it and forget to mention that 50% of the…

Finally the fish takes the bait. Took you long enough to put two and two together.

I’m not bothered when 8 year olds do it because, that’s simply what begginers who can’t draw do, I have a problem with it when people flat out plagiarize work that doesn’t belong to them. And you can say “So what? Big deal.” The fact of the matter is, if you want to to take an image or product that doesn’t belong to you, draw over it and claim that it’s your’s even when it’s not, that is condsidered stealing which is a pathetic example of what an 18 year old artist should do in order to better themselves in their chosen field. But go ahead and trace, I’m not the one trying to convince myself that cheating is okay.

It bothers you that much? I ain’t claiming anythings mine kid - all your crying over the past month has been a laugh :) ~

You failed to inform people that the images you created were partially fabricated from images and objects that already exist. You’re complacent, stuck in your own ways and that will be your undoing. And I’m sure you would be an expert on crying considering you do it the most.

ahah pretty sure every drawing is from things that exist - you ok? And well at least i dont cry because someone got things for their birthday that i couldnt have :(

That’s a ridiculus notion. Drawing from reference is drawing with an observational aid but not copying it exactly. Directly copying something, that’s what people that can’t draw do, in order to teach themselves (like 10 year olds) which is what you do. I am completely baffled that you are trying to defend something so juvinile and basic. This is some actual critique, I’m trying to insult you: You need to grow up. Stop tracing. And next time you have trouble drawing something, actually try to do it yourself. Or no one will take you seriously.

Ok lets clarify what have i traced here? Is it the possibility of that, that’s making you so angry or that people got/have what you don’t?

After observing surveying you through the majority of the FMP. I have knowledge of the photographs that you have copied. Especially in your final pieces.

Please oh mighty art critic of many centuries - enlighten me, show me your glorious ways and improve my grade.

This is what I was talking about when I called you complacent. You’re attitude to anyone that grants any form of critique be it positive, negative or constructive is absolutly disgraceful. You should use anyform of feedback to better yourself, but you don’t because you’re lazy or you think you’re above them, and again, complacent.

I dont think i’m above anyone at all, i just did some work and got my grade. Its you that feels the need to accuse me of tracing a month after the work is done, just because people liked it. Critique my work by all means and im all for that, but a critique isnt just calling people tracers :)
