over 2000 watchers!
Heyo, I reached another online archievment.
For all the new watchers who don’t know me. I am Dirk E. Schulz, E. stands for Erik. I am not related to Charles M. Schulz. Or maybe I don’t wanna admit it?
I am german and people fear me, because I eat humen. I am 30 so too uncool for the young folks and too young for the old hacks.
I draw cartoons and that was probably the reason why you started following me. Or for my butt.
I hope you have fun and soon I will enjoy to piss ya off by submitting parodies of your favourite shows. If not, well enjoy my original stuff, like the Swefs, Themrog and whatever show I might still develop.
I worked on Axe Cop and Hot Rod Creeps. My latest work was storyboarding for a Flintstones DVD special and am in talks for the new Looney Tunes show.
That’s all I can say to show off.
Cheers and have some Schmorgurken.
I understand why you feel that way, and when I was younger I would have agreed with you. Right now though you are throwing away a lot of your professionalism to “teach him a lesson” rather than keep this private or move on.
No matter what you say to him he will continue being a dick until he’s older. I was the same way, and no amount of people telling me otherwise helped. If anything it spurred me on to do it more because I was getting a reaction out of someone and making them look bad by getting them to post things like that. You didn’t so much play a harsh, unpolite guy you played the fool for someone else’s enjoyment.
There’s nothing wrong with being blunt or rude at times, but when it’s over critique or rude comments about your art it’s just better to block and move on. They will find someone else to annoy until they grow up, and you will waste less time entertaining them and more time drawing :D (unlike them)
I cannot throw professionalism away with stuff like that on the internet. I am not sure what your ‘view’ of professionalism is, but saying an opinion or ‘teaching’ a kid a lesson on the internet does not harm your work ethics and the quality itself. You only get more or less haters/likers. You throw professionalism away, when you promise something on a kickstarter and you fail to deliver. Or when you promise payments to artists and you never give them any paychecks. Professionalism is a word of the industry and the industry just cares about making money and that very quick. You have to be an extremist of something to make a company think twice giving you work, because it will harm their image too. And even there are enough examples where it is not true too.And the internet is full of badmouthing. I guess that kid has told everyone that I am an old hack already. It does not harm my work resume nor do I become a complete slacker who cannot work towards deadlines.
I am aware that he could still be a small dick even after that response of me. I am also aware that he is just a poor little troll begging for cheap attention. But I had enough kids doing the same to me and asked for it and these kids reappeared years later and thanked me for the kick. That is no excuse for what I did here, nor do I want to get an excuse. But here it was necassary and It maybe helped that kid.
When some of my watchers hate me for that, no problem. I am not here to fullfill the ideal of each individual.
I am a human who works as an artist and I have also a small margin of tolerance. And when a kid throws shit at you, you have to react.
I am not a god who does artistic gold every time he works. I don’t accept that people are free to throw shit at me and friends without an end. And I won’t wait till I choke on the nuts in the shit.
Thanks for being open and giving me honest critic.
I may fail a lot, but I won’t stop sharing and I won’t stop motivating conversations. Even about silly stuff like immature teens.
Honestly dude, you only needed the first part and it would have been A++ but the more you continued this post the worse off you look.
Let’s be clear - the anon in question is a dick full stop. There is no excuse for leaving inane rude comments disguised as “critique” (not critic), HOWEVER, Instead of ignoring them, instead of turning off anon or blocking them you go into a full out personal attack against them in retaliation though?
Dude, that’s not cool at all. You can’t lambaste him for being a rude jerk and then turn around to attack him, aiming for really personal points like that. You come off as worse than a few anon asks you’ve published about it by sniping at him with your own post about him (but not naming him, wouldn’t want it to get back to him/you ???). If you want to be professional you need to learn how to deal with this stuff with far more grace and dignity than you are right now because you are failing at doing damage control if people read this and agree with the anon over you.
It doesn’t matter if you make money off your work, if you can’t act professional then you shouldn’t claim to be one.
I am fully aware of all consequences and also that this response to him is harsh and too personal. But that kid needed a wake-up call and he continued being rude even to 3 friends/watchers who told him in a very polite an mannered way that his behave is wrong. And Even I did more than enough.
So what should you do with a teen who is unopen for this kind of help and acts like that?
I am neither angry, i am sad that he might keeps this attetude and gets in even bigger trouble. The reality is far worse then some anons who badmouth you. I don’t am here to puke flowers and try to protect an positive image of me on the internet. That is the reality.
I met a lot people who are stuck in a sort of emotion and they need a kick in the butt. And a kick in the butt is never nice when you see it as an outsider. And the internet does not excuse anything you do anyway. Its not the first time I commented like that. There where and still will come more situations and old watchers and new watchers noticed them.
What they do with it, is open for their own interpretations, whatever I say or not say.
The ones who know me better understand that. The ones who needed a reason to hate me, will find something anyway.
Like I said. Make your opinion. The internet is open for anything. And being quite and passive is not an option for eternity.
And in this moment I don’t wanted to play the polite, graceful professional who ignores a little teen. I played the harsh, unpolite guy who gave that teen a kick.
I don’t know what you will think of me or what you will think why I post this, but I like that people see what I must deal with and how I react. Feel free to critizise me or my art at any time. I am also just human and working as an artist does not make me special or a better human. But as a human I should recieve the same respect and politeness like you want from other people. And when you give a critic, stay fair and polite, because you are also not free of any big problems in your artworks.
To clear things up. I have only worked for few big companies right now and not for very long. I also just survive by doing little commissions here and there. I never claimed to be a professonal, but when you sell art or worked for a company, you are automatically a professional.
Does not mean I am worth getting into the hall of fame of artists or consider myself better than you all. And the least better than that little teen, who keeps insulting me without any real reason.
I won’t comment anymore, because make your own opnions:
'I'm unwatching you. You're a 45 year old man, claiming to be a professional, yet you take criticism like a newborn kitten.
This is why you’re where you are. May your career continue to crash and burn.’
Me: And I unwatched you already, because you are a 19 year old slacker artist whith zero talent, who needs to go around the internet to insult professionals to feel like and adult and worth of an artist. You can’t take critic at all too and you seem to enjoy to keep your view of me like a little hater, while we all just told you the way you gave the critic was childish and unecassary, but we said you were right that I was reusing a bodytype a bit too much. Still no reason to act like you did and what you wrote here now, proves even more that you are an immature little kid who wrote the insults because of jealousy and hate rather than helping me or caring at all. And now you act like the newborn kitten.
4 people wrote you are right. But hey, you admitted you wanted to insult and all the 1700 watchers who came to my picture see now what a fool you made out of yourself, how immature and a bad artist you are. Way to go to destroy your reputation. But teens have the tendency to be self-destructive and like to be the victim, I guess? Teens have the tendency to critsize people for stuff they are doing by themselves…
It’s really sad that you have a gigantic ego, but the skillset worse than a Liefeld. And when you are frustrated because nobody will pay for your shitty art, only when you do lizard men furry porn, then is it not my fault dude. It’s not my fault that you can’t buy tickets for your girlfriend, or maybe that the art school has rejected you, or that you make no progress or that you have emotional trouble right now.
It’s because of your arrogance and that you are closeminded for any critic at all too. I won’t pay a wanna-be artist 40 bucks for an uninspired drawing and the fear that it will take him forever, because you could only do 4 drawings in a year and you were using these 4 drawings as examples for your commissions chart…
Good luck finding any job at all. I am worried that you stay unemployed for a long time.
I work on that problem of the bodytypes on my chars, thanks again for pointing that out in your horrible way. But I doubt you will work on your problems at all and you will continue to spread hate and arrogance to excuse your slack.
If I wanted to not hurt your feelings, their crits would have more value.’
