and it can be pretty amusing.
I read this one book that was all about studying art and beginning with your own choices, and the first rule in the book.
"Nobody is born with a style or a voice. We don't come out of the womb knowing who we are. In the beginning, we learn by pretending to be our heroes. We learn by copying."
"We're talking about practice here, not plagiarism-- plagiarism is trying to pass someone else's work as your own. copying is about diverse-engineering. It's like a mechanic taking apart a car to see how it works."
Now I know I haven't been getting much of the whole
"Your style looks TOO MUCH LIKE LUPIS"
"You stole someone's style"
But I figure this is important. I just want to finish the statement once and for all, and I'm 100% lupisvulpes
does too. (sorry for mentioning you but I'd really appreciate you to hear this Emily.) :'U
"Start copying what you love. Copy copy copy copy. At the end of the copy you will find yourself."
And I believe that isn't the best quote to cope with,
but a lot of Lupis fans feel the same way. They're just trying to be like their hero. (Idol.)
Stealing is one thing but Copying is different.
Nothing is really wrong with copying a style, as long as it's based upon inspiration.
I'm done for now, so...Yea.
If you comment, it's most likely going to be hidden because I don't need a debate, it's 2:36 in the morning and I'm too tired for that shit.
