Artists Evolving or Devolving?

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 23, 2014, 4:31 PM
No, this is not a topic on Darwin's Evolution Theory. ;p  It's about whether artists here on dA either are evolving in their artistic skills or devolving. It pretty much depends on the 'Eye of the Beholder' whether one would find an artist's art improving over time or going the opposite direction. 

Now why am I asking this question? Simply, in this past month, I have noticed the drawing styles of two artists, whom I have commissioned many times, looks to be going down in quality.  Pretty much most commissioners would commission an artist due to mostly liking the artist's art style, and I have done so with these two artists. Yet when I compared the art they drew for me recently to art they drew for me a year or two ago, I noticed the quality IMO was not good for the current art than what they had drew a year or two ago. It pretty much surprised me, given I had thought these artists would keep the drawing style that many like the best, yet without telling anyone, their styles pretty much changed over time.

Yeah, I can hear some artists say that they would not stick with the same style over time.  Maybe due wanting a change? Wanting their own unique style? I don't fault them for such change, but for commissioners, the style of the art is what mostly drew them to an artist. If the style change, depending on the POV of the commissioners, either commissioners would feel happier (if they see the style looks better than the previous style) or feel disappointed (if they see the style looks not as good as the previous style). 

I have always thought that for artists, they would only get better over time as they pick up new skills, etc., and I have happily seen this with some artists, making me feel happy to continue commissioning them. Finding out two artists' styles have gone in the opposite direction, pretty much made me feel disappointed.  I asked myself, "Why? Why did they changed?" I did not have an answer given it could be for a variety of different reasons, yet in the end, I realized I just will not commission these artists anymore due to seeing IMO the downhill quality of their art. 

Now I am not going to be naming names here. I don't want to see this turned into a 'trial' and put these two artists on a public display regarding the quality of their art. If anyone wants me to tell him/her, I'll privately say so via Note but only if the person promises to keep the names to themselves and just see the difference in quality of their art.  Again, I don't want to put these artists on 'trial'. 

Yet I don't mind if artists post their 'thoughts and opinions' regarding the 'evolution' or 'devolution' of art here on dA. I know there are no true 'black & white' answers to why artists change over time. 

Anyway, this pretty much made me realized that artists are no different than any other 'profession' out there. Some get better over time. Others go the other way.

FAQs

Commissions- No Stamp by Icelilly P. Commissions- No Stamp by Icelilly Requests- No Stamp by Icelilly

Read the descriptions under each art. I'm not an artist, for I *buy* commissions & point commissions from artists. This also means I don't do requests either. Get it? :roll:

I'm tire of strangers asking me for points. Sorry, I will not give points to strangers. To people I know on dA and for a good cause, you bet. For points commissions, you bet. For someone *begging*, no.

Shipping Support Stamp by TrainerKelly _pairings_stamp_1 by KuroiPit Fanfiction by MissBeastie

I'm tire of fans commenting about the pairings I support, saying they will not ever happen. Big duh. I know they will not ever happen in canon, it's just *fun* to imagine them together in fan art and fanfiction. Live and let live. So loosen up. ;p

JuPMod's Blog for Deleted DeviantArt Art ---> jupmod.blogspot.com

After the Great Purge of Naruto art in Oct. 2011, DeviantArt had deleted a dozen or more Naruto art from my dA account due to 'underage' nudity and sexual content. Well, I'd created a blog to house these 'deleted' works. :)
