What is an Artist? by Neikoish What is an Artist? by Neikoish
Use this anywhere you like x3 sorry if its a bit fast.

I hate seeing people comment on a picture saying "THIS IS STUPID OMFG YOU AREN'T A REAL ARTIST LIKE THIS PERSON blahblahblah."

I know I'm not the only one.

Take this to heart; everyone who imagines and creates is an artist, no matter what form of art they practice.

No matter what others say.

And no matter how good they are.

Once again, feel free to use this.

EDIT: A DD? 8D I'm honored.

Once again, use this ANYWHERE.

The real question is wether or not they’re a good artist.

I do think it's a bit oversimplified. Nevertheless good intentions are what matters.

Please allow me to disagree on this. Worry not, I'll explain. Not everyone that can imagine IS an artist. 
Stealing art, trolling is NOT art. Recoloring on a picture or only changing color of an already existing character (like Mario or Sonic) and call it "art" or "original character" does not know the true meaning of creativity and art. It is also false to say creativity is creating something that's not exist.
Creativity is coming from the soul, NOT to please everyone. Creativity is not only changing color, it is creating a development for a character, his personnality, A BACKSTORY. It is creating stories that make the characters actually lives. Same about drawing, painting or any activities that allow work on any materials, like wood or even a computer. A true artist won't care for popularity and will create for his own pleasure first, and will NOT COPYING which a true artist don't know how to do it anyway. 
Though, it is always possible to everyone to practice and improve, ONLY if they could stop recoloring or stealing someone's else artworks, or even trying to please everyone.

a former student of my art teacher said once: "a picture/sculpture/whatsoever is a piece of art, if more than two people are calling it "art""

aww. I love that. And its totally true! :)
eribdragon Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2014
I really mean it. Also, besides being an artist, you seem to be a poet to. I really like how you draw your cats and I've been trying to copy some I've created free-hand. Is that okay?
eribdragon Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2014
Hey,um, Neikoish, you are so cool!

My Not-Art-O-Meter had enough when I encountered images of some person soaking marijuana buds in hashish oil. I definitely can say that doesn't count as art.

You can't create "good" or "bad" art, because everyone has different opinions and standards.

Everytime i feel down i repeat the words on this stamp and i feel happy and inspired to draw again. Best stamp ever, thank you so much for making this. c':

No matter what.

My favorite artist: Anyone who is creative! :D
My friend is always lamenting that she's bad at art. But, she is extremely good at origami. Origami isn't any less artistic than a drawing!
camiwolf09 Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I only draw, but I fully agree with you. I really hate it when people say drawing is the only form of art.
There's all kind of ways to be an artist! :3

I like this!
I remember a few years ago a twat called Keen wanted to censor the internet, calling all ordinary people 'cult of the amateur', and saying that quality only came from paid-to-do-it people like himself!
Interesting on him:

Mawichan Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2013  Student General Artist
Yes, everything can be art, yet not everthing will be good art.
However, even if artists must listen to feedback in order to grow and improve, the only feedback they must never pay attention to is to anyone  who tells you TO QUIT.
No one should tell anyone to quit trying.

people say I have so many ideas but can't really draw them. I say "Yes, you're right, but if I draw it on my PC, it just get's how I wanted it to be" And then say: "But that's not art." Ever heard of digital art? Can't I just be a computer artist?!!

Ooh that would get me so mad. There are many forms of art like music and digital art is another.

This is so true. I think of myself as an artist, because I write, photograph, and make music. I don't write songs, and I'm not much of a visual artist, but I can create and entertain, so I feel I can call myself an artist. Even actors and performers are artists.

There is a children's book called "I Am an Artist" by Pat Lowery Collins. I recommend it for all ages.
ChibiSCute Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2012
Thank you for making this <3 Now I actually dare to think I'm an artist, but I always thought I wasn't good enough...
