Moving this from my main account *VampLuvr0729 because I want to get all my stamp faves on one account and art faves on another. I’m going to leave it up on my original account, for people that are already using it, but I want to encourage everyone to please fave this version.
This stamp applies to all wolf artists, but for now, I’m going to be concentrating on those who make wolf comics. Most wolf comic makers know and understand how it feels to be brutally stereotyped. It’s so hard to work and work on making an exciting and unique plot and to be labeled as ‘cliché’ for the sole reason that the comic’s main characters are wolves. Granted, some comics do seem to imitate each other, but most of those are just kids who are just trying to get attention and will outgrow the immature popularity contest they seem to hold in their minds. For those that make comics that do not fit into the stereotypical ‘wolf comic’ genre, it’s increasingly frustrating to be constantly judged by those who only see the species of the characters. Saying every wolf comic is alike and therefore ‘cliché’ is like saying any lion comic is just like ‘The Lion King’, any owl comic is just like ‘Guardians of Ga’Hoole/Legend of the Guardians’, or any cat comic is just like ‘Warriors’. Most people argue that every wolf comic is about one pack pitted against another, but take this into consideration: that aspect is not unique to wolf comics. In Legend of the Guardians they are fighting rival owls known as ‘The Pure Ones’, in ‘Warriors’ Thunderclan is constantly battling the rival clans, in ‘Harry Potter’ they are fighting Voldemort and his legion of followers, in ‘The Last Airbender’ they are fighting the ‘Fire Nation’, and in ‘Avatar’ they are fighting against those attempting to destroy their world. This list could go on forever, but the point is, rivalry in a wolf comic does not automatically make it cliché. Am I saying that there is no copying or imitation in any wolf comic? No, I certainly am not. I have seen much imitation and even reported comics that seemed like outright thievery, but again, this is not unique to wolf comics. It is more common because of the abundance of comics featuring wolves, but as with any trend, you just have to let the waters calm before you can decide which artists truly love wolves. Do you have to love wolves? No, everyone has different tastes; all I am asking for is a little respect and consideration to all of the wolf comic makers who face opposition for their choices. I only wish that we could all accept each others likes and keep the dislikes to a respectful level, so as not to hurt anyone, but unfortunately, the world is not perfect. Stereotypes have been around for years, whether they are according to race, gender, tastes, age, the way you dress, who you date or marry, and how you choose to live your life. Stay strong, wolf artists, you'll get through this some day. As for the haters, please, be considerate and realize that not all wolf artists are imitators and that they have damageable feelings and egos just like you do. In the end, you have to follow your passion, and put your love before the hate of others.Yes, you can use this, you don't have to ask.Not really in the mood for nasty comments, sooooo… comments disabled.
