I've noticed today that there is a disparagingly large difference in views between my less technical work, and the pieces I spend hours to days on...

Case in point: Red Dino Ranger WIP by vincentdarkheart

I spent HOURS on the above image, and it's not even finished yet. Although it isn't finished, I know for a FACT that it looks better than 90% of the crap that currently constitutes my DA Gallery. It's annoying for me because there seems to be this standard nowadays that EVERYTHING worth looking at is a photo-realistic digital painting and that more traditional works and line and colour illustration are being dismissed by the art community almost entirely.

This aggravates me because I feel most comfortable drawing comic pages. I always have. When I DO bust my arse getting something looking like the power ranger above it goes COMPLETELY ignored despite the painting techniques I have applied and my use of colour. Now you might me wondering why this annoys me given my previous statement... Well it's simple. I can draw up 10 comic book pages in a day while working at a leisurely pace, while painting (digital or otherwise) takes me hours to days at a time to get a finished looking piece and it's completely ignored; meanwhile, my crappy little sketches and lineart can get 100's of views.

I cannot make sense of the elitist attitude of digital painters. They DEMAND that everyone else learn to paint like they do otherwise it's sub-standard art. But then when people do start to do digital painting over something they love and feel comfortable with, they are dismissed instantly. It truly confuses me.

I have lineart and colour pictures in my gallery with ALOT of views, but my digital paintings, yes even the GOOD ones, are completely ignored. I ask this rhetorically, but WHY??

I love this site, I do, but sometimes it's more like a snake pit than the community I willingly joined a few years back.

I've had to restart them. My old laptop took everything with it when it died. I'm doing these other comic pages to get used to using my tablet again. It wont be too much longer. Sorry man

Not to worry. So long as it's near the top of your to-do list. As it's now 2014, I'm really wanting to get cracking with the project.
