While the PHB controlling everyone and everything in this community is certainly one of its biggest issues, there are some other problems I should adress, too. Bias when it comes to artists is just one of these smaller problems.
So, less than an hour ago I drew a picture of Blue Diamond, from my favorite cartoon at the moment, Steven Universe. As with all my artwork, I posted it on the art channel on the PHC. Only one person said they liked it…
The same thing happened a few days ago, too…
Yet, when other artists post their work, they get so much more praise for it!
Are you noticing what I’m noticing? It seems as if artists who are active on DeviantArt get much more praise for what they make. To be more specific, they are a group of friends who compliment each other’s artwork – and no one else’s.
Look, this really isn’t fair. Everyone should get an equal amount of praise for their hard work. They don’t have to be your friend, and they don’t have to be on dA. That’s favoritism, that’s bias, and that’s bad.
If you’re reading this, artists, please try to notice other people’s art more. Really, please. And no, I’m not saying that I hate your art, or that mine’s better than yours, or that you don’t deserve the praise you get. I’m just saying that other people should get the opportunity to see people enjoy their work, and not just you.
