WTF is wrong with that ego?
Sorry about the title,
Right now i’m working on very personal projects. I’m uploading ashort story on my facebook account, and then, some guy sent me a message sayin: “What’s this cheap soap opera for?”
I ignored the rest of the message from this guy, who i must say, has become a pain in the ass. Everytime he talks to me, starts with something like “hey the other day this important person and me were talking about many projeects” “Important person and me were signing books at the comic convention” ” i have an editor and i’ll be publishing my graphic novel in US these months” “This girl is in love with me cause im so awesome and have green eyes” ” My brother earns tons of money, and i could earn that too, but i don’t want to” “That girl said she wanted oil painting lessons from me and i’m the envy of everyone” and stuff like that. He loves to talk about how “awesome” (LOL) is himself. I really don’t know him, he just appeared suddenly.
So, a few days he started to say these comments about my work: “hey i don’t understand your comic work”. I understand the critic, and i appreciate it. Some guy told me: “I don’t like your batgirl, she looks so fat” Well, sorry for not drawing girls like Rob Liefeld or Big boobed girls like Ramos or any other artist. I understand sometimes subjective critics are out there and you will have to face them, but sometimes people only say it because they want to. Just for that. So yesterday this guy says: What’s this cheap soap opera for? (referring to my short story, about a couple) and i will never answer to him, it’s just annoying.
I’ve received bad critics all the time. Like this guy, called Juanele, saying that my work is crap. In other hand, i have very good compliments about my work and i treasure that, because it means something i’m doing is ok.
I just want to draw comics and make art, that’s all. I’m not gonna change the world or being a millionaire. I’m a poor person, and i live by the day, but i’m sure i want to tell stories with my art, and when it comes to a persona nd likes it, well, it’s like winning the lotto, for me.
No one should EVER qualify the work of others as crap, or bad. Sure, i think some jokes are ok, when is about overrated work. But being mean just because you can, well, i think it’s not good.
Just wanted to say your art was lovely in the Stephanie Brown comic. Great work! :)
Hey thanks a lot! i really appreciate people watching my work. I’m really flattered! :)
Just had the pleasure of reading your Stephanie Brown comic and wanted to say: that panel on the first page of her kicking the two guys in the faces? GORGEOUS. I love the perspective and the lines of her body(if that makes sense?) and somehow it just jumped out at me as a piece of genius in the middle of already fantastic work. My jaw dropped, to be honest. Love your art!
First of all, thanks a lot! And oh, that panel, was really hard to do. All the good credit goes to Max’s idea and colors, and so to Aladdin for the excellent lettering and design. And again thanks a lot for your kind comment! :)
I absolutely love your version of Stephanie Brown, can't wait to see the rest! If you're ever selling prints, please let me know! :)
Hey thanks!! Is one of my favorite characters and my fav batgirl. It was a great pleasure to write max’s script. If i can sell something i will announce it :)
