You Don't Have To Be - Stamp by GriffSGirl You Don't Have To Be - Stamp by GriffSGirl
...

Because some people just don't get it.



EDIT: ... There... hopefully the frames are better paced. Also changed 'French' into 'Italian'.

Also have to fix the frames on here so it's not so fast. oTL;; My PhotoShop was lagging, so I saved what I had finished and couldn't really do the play back to see how well it flowed. So I'm sorry about that. There are also some things I've forgotten as well -- if anyone that sees this and wishes to contribute something, I'll consider it and then add it to the stamp.

I was going to add something a little lighthearted in there, too... but... I thought it inappropriate, so I omitted it.

omg soo true! I listen to Japanese music, draw anime and watch anime and when people see me doing it they ask; "Are you Japanese?"
It annoys me so much!

Actually, you DO have to be Greek to sculpt beautifully. But everything else is true.

Oh god, so true.
The first thing teachers told me when I went to selections for art schools was to stop drawing anime because it wasn't my style... WTF seriously.

:iconsecretsomeone:
secretsomeone Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2010
yes, I agree.
My art teacher's always saying that I have to paint more... I have no idea why. So she writes in my report, " needs to complete more painted works," and then my home-group teacher talks to me for about half an hour on ' trying new things' and 'stepping out of your comfort zone'.

I remember someone thought since I can draw anime that I either wanted to be japanese or I could also draw cartoons and was just being a prick about it, and that because I draw I should be abe to paint or sculpt, which is basically like saying I can draw, so clearly I can also play the tuba. some people are just stupid. it's always either "you can do one type of art so you can do them all" or "you can only draw the way the people in your country draw so you shouldn't bother trying."

THIS.
Just because I can draw decently DOES NOT MEAN I'm any good at 3D sculptures.
I'm rubbish with clay. What I create with that medium looks like a kindergartener attacked a lump of clay with a fork.

Erolololo I managed to read it! :dummy:

I see so many complaints about anime/manga. I do think anime and Japan are overrated BUT, that does not make the art bad. And nationality has nothing to do with it! Even though, I actually do want to change my style, but I defiantly don't do it because of my nationality. I do it because it feels that the style doesn't suit me any longer.

I think people should respect anime artists who/and people who dream to go and/or to visit Japan. Yeah, it's annoying. But, respect is pretty important... This is where trolls can cross the line.

Ofcourse, someone who pretends to be Japanese do deserve to be trolled but, I'm talking about the people who actually don't think they're Japanese and actually do have strong, logical ambitions and dreams.

But outside anime/manga, I do get judged a lot. I know a fair amount of people actually do judge me by my nationality a lot. I like writing, but I generally do it in English. Some people are like "Oh, but you're not native, aren't you? Then why do you write in English?". :roll:

I don't post most of my stuff because no one would give a shit about my non-fan works, period. I'm not popular enough so I lack the guts to do it. Anyway, I'm pretty sure you get the drift. :P

is a perfect example of why artistic labels murder society's perception of art.

Well done. My only qualm is that the fpm is a little fast.

How true! It's the story of my life as a developing artist, people asking if I was Asian because of the way I draw (and my slightly-narrower-than-average eyes).
