Your story reminded me of this one manga. It's an autobiography of a manga author who won the Manga Taisho award, about her years before and during Art College. It might just lighten your day.Zylinder wrote:For one of our digital illustration classes, we've basically been flogged mercilessly for the whole semester.
The lecturer showcases our work piece by piece, and quote - says it's ugly, or that he doesn't want to critique it because we painted it without using our brains. Now everyone in the class is demotivated, and some are completely giving up on their final project.
I don't even know how I feel about this. There's just this general cloud of swirling, directionless anger in me. I'm sad that it's come to this for everyone, I'm angry at the lecturer for being so harsh, but at the same time it IS true that our work is subpar, but we're only a product of a syllabus that has concentrated on tracing and copying for 2 years? Ugh, this is all daft.
