when people say their character looks like something it reminds other people of?
Like if I was to say, "hey your character reminds me of this one guy from said anime/movie/whatever". Typically people get all asshurt or upset and instantly yell at you saying shit like: "NO NON ON ON NON n0 NO U FUCKING CUNT GO JUMP IN A FIRE!!1" or "UGH UR JUST JEALOUS AND DON'T APPRECIATE MY ART!!111" Well ok that was a bit dramatic but you get my point.
Seriously WHY DO PEOPLE GET SO MAD OVER THIS. I understand that whatever you created probably involved some hard work and creativity but c'mon. It's pretty much impossible to create something 900000% original now. Practically everything has been done already so its bound to remind somebody of something. It's just a matter of time before someone who's seen some absurd shit to come around and be like: "Oh this looks like this one girl from this really obscene foreign movie!!"
Honestly when people tell me that kind of stuff I just laugh my ass off. Why? Well not only is it funny to me but whatever thing people think my shit reminds them of it tends to be a good thing. People often associate positive emotions in things they're a fan of so it tends to bring them bundles of joy when something you made reminds them of said loved anime/franchise/book/etc. It also can get people to like your shit ever more, as a matter of fact I have liked things in the past simply cuz it reminds me of something I love. Also I'd like to think that if something I made looks even slightly similar to something a professional artist made then I'm not so bad at what I do after all if a pro thinks the design is ok to do.
Now of course if this bothers someone don't be an ass and do it to them ok. They might have self-esteem issues or something so you probably shouldn't... DoNT. You should ask why if bugs them in the first place or something IDK lol don't be an assbaka. All in all I just thought I'd finally put my 2 cents on this topic since I've been wanting to talk about it for ages.
Sorry if I sound like a butt cheek I wasn't trying to.
