i. hate. it. when. i. draw. something. that. i. worked. on. forever. and. nobody. looks. at. it.
i literally spent the whole day working on one piece, and it only got at least 2 views. i only get views when i draw something that i make about a fandom or something, and i can’t even draw my own OC. i know that most of you are probably like “wow it doesnt matter about pageviews get over it, it matters what you think” and yes, it does - but when barely anybody looks at it, and it looks great, it kills you inside, and you feel like crying because you just wasted 16 hours making it.

mmyeah pretty much all the time.
i know that feel bro
Pretty sure all artists go through it. TT.TT
Don’t stop after lack of response, Keep on drawing. and going and going
People are not the Energizer Bunny. We need breaks now and again. :P
:P I’ll rephrase
it happens but don’t it stop you
Unless it happens all the damn time ;V;
I have to say something here.
I am sure you understand that you don’t have the right to have people see and appreciate your work. Regardless of how long you spent on a piece, the pageviews you get on it are directly related to exposure. Yes, that’s why fan works get more views, by using keywords that are being searched all the time and by enticing enthusiasms that already exist. The internet is a web after all, and pageviews directly correspond with the amount of strands leading to you.
Please, please don’t act like you are being denied pageviews. That is no cosmic injustice that is being exacted unto you. The internet is awash with media sites and art forums especially in which you can ask directly for people to view your work and even provide you with feedback. Yes, there is a difference between seeking a critical eye and an audience, I grant you that. But if you truly believe you are producing work of a quality that deserves more views, then it is up to you to present that work in a more suitable way. Whether that be plastering it up on pages of the net you otherwise wouldn’t, or creating a more constant stream of content so that due to the very nature of sheer numbers, you increase your chances of being noticed.
All I am trying to say is that we, on the internet, are on even ground. The most even of grounds. Sure, we stand at different levels, dictated by our ability primarily, and secondly, by our web presence. But we can influence both of those things. Fantastic draftsmen can gain much less attention than some god awful artists. Why? Because there are some god awful artists who know how to use the internet.
Please, just rate yourself objectively, and if you feel you are truly ‘deserving’ of more page views, then figure out why that’s not happening and fix it.
And I haven’t even touched upon the point of creating in order to create, and not to seek acclaim. Of course this isn’t black and white in itself, but I will go so far as to say that if I spent a day doing something I am passionate about, and enjoy, I would not deem that time ‘wasted’ if nobody else appreciated the work.
Don’t think of it as not getting any pageviews for a days worth of drawing, because if you work hard and increase both you skill level, and ability to present yourself and your work online then maybe it will end up being god knows how many fewer days of drawing before you really start getting noticed.
I’m just saying that even though this is a thought that most artists will have, maybe you should keep it to yourself, because really, there is no genuine complaint to be made.
Bravo, Fraz. Totally agreed.
Become meguca, motherfucker.
because it’s marketed more to men than to women
you’re a misogynist.
i like the implication that men find it easier to emotionally connect to a dog than a woman and that that’s for…
Russian Lieutenant Tanya Pavelovna would like a word with you. If y’all gonna throw shit down at least get your facts straight so you’re not literally incorrect from the get go.
This kind of uninformed equality fear-mongering is exactly the type of behavior that dilutes the cause of third wave feminism entirely. You’re actively hurting your cause when you allow blatantly misrepresented or just plain wrong tumblr posts to worm their way out of the woodworks under the guise of feminist critique. How do you think you’re facilitating any sort of shift in gender equality with this?
This is wrong, and you are wrong. There is nothing in what we’ve seen in the single showing of the new Call of Duty that confirms or denies EITHER that dogs are playable or that women are not. You should feel bad that you jumped on this without doing any research whatsoever, and attempted at a grab for notes with something as blatantly sensationalist and tabloid as you chose to word it.
I’m not angry, I’m just annoyed that you took the path you did, because you’re hurting a genuine and legitimate rights movement that you no doubt care for a metric fuckton.
But this is not the way you do it.
Before I start, I must point out that the vast majority of my closest and dearest friends are gamers, and none of them are a walking stereotype. When I talk about the nature of gamers here, I may seem to do so in a negative way. This is because I am using public stereotypes, not my own opinions….

Other things most straight white guys get way more upset about than they do about rape:
This has to be one of the most ridiculous posts I have ever seen on this website.
It’s an example of the fallacy known as an “Appeal To Worse Problems”. It’s like when somebody is depressed and you say that they can’t be, because there are people in the world who have it worse than them, so their problems are actually insignificant. It’s like here, when apparently we can’t talk about anything that annoys us. We can only talk about the very worst problems in the world 24/7. We are not allowed to have emotions for anything else, because they are not as important. We are not allowed to be human beings.
Not only am I supposed to completely shut music, sports, and other cultural things out of my life so that I can devote it more fully to hating rape. I should probably break up with my girlfriend, stop talking to my family. I should stop going outside. All of these things are getting in the way of me devoting my fullest attention to the problem of rape. I should probably just stop eating, because it’s not as important as rape. My life is less important than rape, so I should just let myself die for the cause. All men should make this sacrifice, and if they don’t they are rape apologists.
Oh, and by the way, this isn’t just men. Women do not spend their lives only getting mad about rape. None of the women I know are that obsessed with rape, even those who have survived it. They still get angry over music, over trends in popular culture, and they are allowed to do so.
Other things most women, not just straight white women, care more about in their day-to-day life than they care about rape.
Welcome to humanity. Not everyone is a rape-hating robot. We all have other stuff going on as well, and we are allowed to do so. Not only is the appeal to worse problems a fallacy, but for some reason you’ve targeted that appeal at straight white men, who are no different to any other group when it comes to this. It’s not like straight white guys are the only ones who care about things other than rape.
Thirdly, I’m not even sure that they do care about these things more than rape. I don’t think the average guy would rape a girl to stop her making a duck face. They just talk about the duck face more, just as people of other genders, races and sexualities do, because it’s more relevant to their day to day life. If you actually gave a man the chance to end global rape, they would take it. They just feel that they can’t do anything about it, and cutting themselves off from human society and being obsessed by it is not going to help.
If we all did that, we would still have a rape culture problem, but a different sort. All of our culture would be destroyed. There would only be discussion of rape. Destroying your own humanity, to solve one of many problems with humanity, does not seem like a logical or productive move.
Finally, it gets even worse if you don’t think rape is the worst thing in the world. Genocide could be seen as worse, for instance. That means that this logic eats itself up.
If feminists were as mad about genocide as they are rape we would have world peace.
Are we happy with that conclusion? That’s the appeal to worse problems for you. Not only have you used the fallacy, not only have you bizarrely applied it to a specific group, but you’ve assumed that if we did exclusively focus on the worst problems then those problems would disappear. That is in no way guaranteed, because human nature is unpredictable. It is not worth the cost to humanity to turn us all into worst-problem-exclusive robots. It would break us.
Please do not post nonsense like this again.
TW: Rape Culture
Often men do not understand that women have to walk home carrying protection. I have friends who carry keys, mace, and keychain clubs. I carry a switchblade in my pocket when I walk home from work. The fact that I feel like I have to do so is sickening, and men should be able to see that.
I encourage men to be just as disgusted by rape culture as women. Aren’t you angry that a small percentage of your sex forces women to carry weapons and assume the worst of you when you walk home behind them?
We shouldn’t have to live in a culture that breeds necessary fear of strangers. I shouldn’t need a knife to walk home in the dark.
Yes I was, That’s why I moved out of a violent crime ridden area, of course I was so focused on the danger of men that I never saw the woman coming….
because I and and every guy I know carries at least one knife on him at all times. several of them keep guns in their homes. and when travelling, I carry a slightly battered shillelagh.
it appears that men are accustomed to what feminists call rape culture.
I’ve never carried a knife but I usually carry a water bottle which I make sure is available as a quick weapon (it’s usually full also).
Will these people please stop acting like they talk for all women omg, I have literally lost count of the number of times I’ve had to say this, but no, these experiences you’re all talking about are not universal female experiences.
I have literally never walked home like that… in fact, most of the time when I’m walking home, even late at night, I do so with my hands in my pockets and my ipod on. Is this the wisest choice? Maybe not, but where I live is ridiculously safe, my walk home is along a brightly-lit highly residential main road and I have never, ever felt truly threatened when walking anywhere late at night (aside from that one time with a bunch of aggressive teenage girls…). But my point is that not every woman lives their lives paralysed by fear and, more importantly, the fear you feel does not necessarily have any real bearing on the amount of danger you are actually in. Images like this prove nothing except that a small subset of women apparently like to bolster each other’s paranoia to make themselves feel special. …Or something, idek.
Plus, there are other reasons for being afraid of being out late. I personally have a tremendous fear of being mugged. Plus rape typically happens in a home environment, committed by someone the victim knew personally.
Women don’t ‘have’ to do anything. Nobody is ‘forcing’ them to do this. Men face a much, much higher risk of all types of stranger violence.
Even if you use the most biased feminist statistics of rape, and erase that men are raped too, you have to consider other forms of violence, which are much more common. You cannot, therefore, claim that being unsafe is a uniquely female phenomenon.
You have to consider that most instances of rape are by somebody the victim knows, often at a party or within a relationship. You cannot, therefore, use statistics of rape’s prevalence to justify points about being unsafe on the streets, as most rapists are not strangers in alleyways, and so carrying weapons into those alleyways has nothing to do with most of the occurrences of rape you are citing.
I’ve always carried my keys like this, as a man, whilst I don’t know any women who do. Not only are you speaking over me, your claim to speak for all women as terrified little damsels is patronising and demeaning. Please stop.
We’re all prejudiced. We all
holdjudgements against other people simply because of their appearance, or other things that we can’t help. Every so often these judgements are put into practice so regularly that they can have a serious negative effect on the victims, and at this point some of those…
According to sources, it costs about $20,000 to hire an assassin so if you ever think you’re worthless, just remember you’re worth $20,000 to someone out there. Happy holidays guys
