..Trace...paste meme...and done. Thanks now I can refer to myself an artist, and talk about the pressure that creating artwork, my art especially, puts on me. In fact Im going to start a tumblre about it right now. Of cource I'll be inviting all of you. Keep in mind the blog is for art ,so please respect that I am an artist and not just someone who .... you know... just doodles or draws. Plus understand how important what I do is.
I'm gonna have to disagree with you on the "EqD is really helpful for discovering the whole fandom" thing.
EqD is helpful for discovering the basics, and the more popular members of the fandom. But unless you are incredibly lucky or of phenomenal talent or get noticed by someone popular, EqD isn't going to so much as give you the time of day, and so cuts out this massive part of the fandom that goes entirely unnoticed by most EqDgoers. There are huge amounts of talent that EqD won't even touch because the person isn't popular enough or doesn't have a style that fits nicely into their incredibly strict criteria (criteria that magically seems to become a lot more lax once you're considered popular).
EqD only wants to show what they personally feel is the best of the best of the best. That, unfortunately, excludes 99.9% of artists. That's hardly the whole fandom.
