im beginning to imagine everything i say/type in the voice of tina from bobs burgers and im not sure im comfortable with that
ok sorry, I keep seeing this come up on my dash so I thought I’d put in my two cents
heres the thing that i wanna say about the recent abbysucks debacle
yes we need more variety. but we need it in tv. in the media. making fun of young people on tumblr?? yes good obviously that will help(it wont). of course they are going to copy styles they are young and impressionable and there is nothing wrong with that.
and oh they also see that ____ type of character doesn’t exist in the media, so they are going to fill in that niche and make that character as an OC! maybe they don’t have much background. it’s just an OC, it’s a thing someone decided to draw because they wanted to see it drawn. and that is ok! it’s good! yes there will be some copying. you might end up with samey characters. that’s alright. the young artists will grow out of it and come up with their own art styles eventually, and the samey characters will evolve to be really cool well thought out characters, with loads of different backgrounds (and good representation!)
but for now lets just get along and let people make chubby black lesbian punk OCs. its not hurting anyone. just like drawing people with colored noses back in ‘11 didn’t hurt anyone. and in this case, they have a legitimate reason to do it besides copying the latest trend! (and it’s still better than the deviantart trend of drawing nothing but pale anorexic kids, something i have tried to break out of myself because wow one body type, you need so much artistic skill to draw one body type and nothing else, wow many skill, very accomplish artist)
tldr dont yell at kids for drawing things that make them happy how about that yes
