Discover new oceans... (Day  62) by Hedwigs-art Discover new oceans... (Day  62) by Hedwigs-art
Aaaaaand... A Quote today!!!! yay :)

I really love this one...

Hi dears, Apperantly I got to the front page with this one. I don't know why. But it's NO reason to hate!!!!
I have better work in my gallery, so don't judje me by this!!!!

I found this quote by randomly browsing trough the internet and thought I could write it down nicely. So I did.
This quote is from André Gide and it was modified a bit here.

André Gide's actual quote was: “Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.”
Here is an earlier, and, IMHO, a better quote (particularly since it is gender-neutral) along the same genre: "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

Okay, this comment is solely to point out the lack of creativity, or effort, put into this work of art.
After a quick Google search, here's what I found:

The original quote was,
“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.” by Andre Gide. So here's major flaw #1: you didn't give credit to the original person who made this quote.

Not only did you badly modify someone else's quote (by badly I mean, added a grammar mistake to the quote and simply just changed the word "Man" in the quote to "You"), you also are trying to pass up everyday handwriting as typography? All you did was, yes, take a quote from someone else, simply /write/ a grammatically incorrect version of it with differently colored markers on white and take a picture of it with what seems to be something far less than a high definition camera. And you didn't even take the time to use a NEW sheet of white paper for this, we can see the text of another writing in the back of this. Or maybe it's just a very weird choice of image editing.

An EXTREMELY optimistic person would actually appreciate this art (I personally don't think this is art due to the horrific lack of creativity put into this.) You get the point.

If you want to copy and paste cool quotes that came from somebody else, do it on Facebook, not an ART website.

Thank you for this criticism!
I'm sorry...
I didn't thought in any way that this would make it to the frontpage >__<
I don't know why!!!

I have much better things in my gallery and other artists have much, much more greater stuff that wasn't on the frontpage...

I really do not know why...

And i did not copy and paste it, i wrote it into my sketchbook because i liked the quote i RANDOMLY stumbled over in the internet!!!
And so i thought, I'd share it with my friends here >.<
I didn't want this to come on the frontpage!!!

Oh no, no hate to you. I looked at your gallery after posting my comment and was relieved to find art. I think it's great that you made the frontpage, just not for something like this. Now you have people bashing you for this, when really you do have good art to be seen that didn't make it.

My frustration is with the popularity of this kind of thing and the viewing of it as real art, even though, while nice, it's not exactly a creative outlet. I do like the quote and am glad to know it.

I am grateful that you didn't attack me, when I commented on something of yours that has nothing to do with you yourself. I apologize if I was mean in doing so, really I don't know what it was supposed to accomplish. It was a spur-of-the-moment thing that I wish I had thought through. I am sorry to trouble you. I hope this increase in viewers has people looking at your art, rather than taking this out on you. The frustration, I'm sure, is toward people who just write stuff and that's all they do; and then they defend it as their amazing and unique art. Like me, they probably didn't look at your gallery first. :)

Thank you for this really nice comment and for the look at my gallery!

You know, I just wrote it into my sketchbook beacuse i liked it... it was no big deal...

Because this was a first (a piece of my gallery landing on the frontpage) I didn't know how to react, and i choose to be calm :)

They didnt claim the quote was theirs. They merely forgot to credit, Or figured everyone would already know the quote isnt theirs.

Then tell me what the comment section is made for if it isn't for elaborate criticism? It's not like I went balls to the wall, calling the artwork crap and the artist homosexual. I was thoroughly pointing out what she did wrong.

That "if you don't like it, don't comment on it!" rationale is obsolete, especially in a comment section of a user-generated content website.

I also added a reply to my own comment, here it is again:
"I realize I might be taking this too seriously, but my jimmies are clearly rustled.

When I got on DeviantART, I expect to see ART; creative representations of someone's imagination."
