Gosh I get the whole no one owns a style POV but seriously, some people (who have put me on their watchlist) try to draw exactly as I do, take all compliments about ‘their’ style without a second thought, and never acknowledge my work in their faves/comments/whatnot. Basically, pretending my work doesn’t exist while they copy it to the best of their ability. So…I can’t help but feel used by a ‘parasite’.
I hope those people will add something unique into their art, instead of following the recipe exactly and pretending they made it up themselves, while crunching the original recipe under their boot.
There’s a difference between inspiration and flat out copying, and unless you’re willing to experiment and try new combos, you’ll never be able to make a style you can really “own”.
Strive to develop your own style, not so you can claim all rights to it, but so you can feel powerful and proud as a creator who is fresh and evolving, rather than a static photograph of something that already exists.
WHY IS NO ONE TALKING ABOUT THIS
