*sulk* - The art of Thornwolf — LiveJournal
This may be just the PMS talking, but why does it seem that the people who I want to impress the most don't give a crap about my art? Oh well. At least *I* have fun. =(

Current Mood: disappointed disappointed

thank you. => i guess i just sometimes wish my dad would one day say "wow great job!" or "i'm proud of you" other than "oh. i see." or i could get more than an "its...okay" from something I spent forever on. I offered mom a print of "Bacchus" and she says its not her colors etc..even though I made it specifically to match her house. *sigh*

ah yes, My mom is -just- starting to somewhat say -somewhat- positive things. She used to just kind of nod at what i've done and go "ok, okay that's nice." and now she goes "oh, that's niice" which makes a little bit of a difference o_

she does, just for her files, im just being oversensitive cuz she didn't want to hang it in her house like ihad originally hoped. Oh well, I'll make another picture for her.

*hugs* I know the feeling. My family/friends/etc sometimes don't understand or like what I do, either.

Heh..but I know I love your work, and I've told you countless times :) Bacchus was gorgeous, and the colors were really good, dunno why your mom wouldn't like it.

But eh, hang in there. There's always gonna be people who don't understand/appreciate what you do. I learned it's best to just ignore them, and keep doing what makes -you- happy. :)

My mother's only response to -any- art I showed her was 'it's fine', I swear she said NOTHING else at least better than that. When your parents aren't artists they just don't give a crap about anything that's related really.

I think your art is gorgeous so hah.

what sucks is, my dads a photographer and is very well versed in the ways of the graphic artist and knows how things should look anatomically/perspective wise/etc. basically, he knows what's good art and what isnt. he prefers my muttropolis stuff, as does my boyfriend, and while i appreciate that, sometimes I'd like to spend a little more time on something fine-artist rather than my "throw it together" cartoon work. =P

Same here, sweetie...my parents only want me to draw portraits and wildlife art--boooring--and they couldn't care less (and never did) about the art I really LIKE to draw: all the fantasy and furry stuff. :/ *snugs and nuzzles*
