C'est un meme, "Meet the artist", assez en vogue l'année dernière, mais y'a aucune composition/condition. Généralement les gens se dessinent, posent ce qu'ils aiment/n'aiment pas, parfois rajoutent des détails, ce qu'ils portent, leur sac, etc...  je crois que j'ai mis un max d'infos, et d'un autre côté c'est assez superficiel. Ce truc indique pas qui je suis de façon très très représentative je trouve...

Je connaissais pas - mais en même temps je ne dessinais plus ^^ 
C'est cool comme concept, mais je comprends ce que tu veux dire par superficiel, je ne sais pas si un individu peut être défini par ses goûts? Mmmh tout dépend du degré de sens qu'à chaque élément qu'on met dans son dessin je pense ^^
Je vais essayer d'un faire un de moi tiens, ça fait pléthore de temps que je ne me suis pas dessiné un avatar digne de ce nom (le mien est un peu vite fait x) )

Par les goûts seuls, non, mais ça commence à faire une piste pour trouver des gens qui sont à peu près dans les mêmes délires, j'ai plus de chances de m'entendre avec un goth métalleux video gameux ou que sais-je qu'une bibliothécaire catho extrêmiste praticante quoi xD

Mais oui, te faut une ID pour DA, et moi je dois MAJ la mienne parce qu'elle date de 2016.

I didnt register this was that meme at first. I just thought it was a neat picture of you waiting for the train all Urban with grafitti and stuff. Then I looked Closer and what a surprise! It was really unique the way you went about it and really fun to read. I almost want to try this meme myself!

Apparently the perspective + inclusion of the text in the background was a good idea, haha...

Goooooo for it /o/

At first it was a bit hard to find the likes/dislikes, but I must say that this is so far the most unique of these that I've seen so far. I like that you went with the urban rail theme.

Years ago I would've loved to do the same meme, selfie drawings kinda stopped clicking on me for some reason...

Well, you don't draw much anymore for your pleasure in general it seems, so I can guess why. Back then when it was my job to draw/animate for work I almost deserted all my social accounts, art-wise.

The thing is, I don't really have a job that requires 2D at the moment. Whenever I had free time I was drawn into the mentality that "drawing is work too and you should not do it on your free time", and instead was drawn into playing games and doing binges. Then I realized I was not drawing anything for months upon months, which brought me back to doing art on my free time as a new year's resolution, at least once a week. That mentality was toxic and I pretty much shut it, along with anyone telling me that.

Still, even on my free art time now, the idea of doing selfie art sort of scares me, I think that save for my rat "fursona" here and there, they have either wrongly represented me or have backfired with ... unwanted attention of a kind <_<

sta.sh/07w0rxf1585 this was the last time I did a selfie meme, though it is using a character I still keep around for ID purposes.

... there was a time I didn't draw anymore at all because of my job, which required drawing. But that was for a different reason : I was getting disgusted of drawing and unconsciously into a depression (I didn't know you could be depressed and not realize it at all, meaning you turn into a robot doing all the must-do's but having no taste in nothing, basically).

Drawing is work, but when it's your passion it doesn't make sense to just ask money for anything you do, otherwise that means hobbies shouldn't exist at all, since they require skill and work as well. Main difference being, a hobby is for your own self and it can uplift your mood, while work is for someone else and can be fun or downright HELL.

That's funny, I've never/rarely dragged unwantted attention but then again, even when posting selfies, I remain very private in general. Plus I keep my attention on a small circle of friends only. I had a personal problem with feeling like my avatar wrongly represented me, but then I realized that like... 95% of the artists wrongly represent themselves anyway, either too beautiful/handsome, too ugly, or something that has nothing to do with them, so heh. Only sometimes I'm a bit undecided as to wether or not my space pirate avatar is a good idea considering he looks a lot like me, only as a space pirate. I'd probably be more free if he didn't look like me at all, like Jedah x)

 Haha xD yeah I can totally see you on the left side of the meme. I rarely ever do memes myself, as I feel they're mostly time-eating and sometimes I feel like I'm just ot fun at all.

Anyways, you definitely beat me to do one using a train station theme, I'm a fag for all that stuff.

Merci, c'est vrai que j'en ai vu un bon tas mais pas encore de mise en situation. Allez, on va dire que je suis innovant *se jette des fleurs dans une pose fabuleuse*

Coooll.. definitely one of the more clever designs, having your likes and dislikes be part of the surrounding, rather than just a guy standing there, with floating words x)
(Cause that's like, SO 2005)
