    Default [D&D] Originality

    Debate topic: Originality
    Extra details: What has become to "being yourself"? What are your thoughts about un-originality


    Starting point: So a recent thought has been going through my mind and I'm curious, what happened to originality and being yourself?
    I mean, look at all the swagfags copying Drake with their #nonewfriends #fuckafakefriend bullshit, all the Bulls snapbacks they're buying just to look like everyone else and fitting in, it kinda annoys me, don't get me wrong, buying snapbacks isn't a big problem for me, it's just that all these (pre) teens are buying them to look like Lil Faggot and Drake McSwaggot.
    I'd rather see someone with a fitted cap without the Bulls logo or Obey.
    Of course following trends has been happening forever, but looking like a little bitch and everyone wanting to do it makes me sad lik dis if u cri evrtim.

    Graphics-wise this happened to me for a little while too, the sentences "more depth, more blending, more flow" got pushed so much in my mind, that it was the only thing I was thinking about when making a sig, when you don't do it anymore, no one likes the tag and says something like. "more depth, more blending, more flow, more lightsource" it bothers me.

    Music taste, it's weird that when I introduced my friend to tyler the creators song (when it was non-popular) without mentioning his name he was like "ugh what the fuck is this shit" and when it got popular he let me listen to it he was like omg that's from Tyler, I love Yonkers! Damn that dude has only amazing songs.
    It's like a group of sheeps.

    Oh well.

    I can relate, if you've ever listened to what I like for music then you'd know right off the bat it's not a popular choice among kids these days.

    First off thank you for a well thought out post that followed the rules!

    And i agree im not afraid to be myself, but it seems i get judged for that. (http://www.codeleakers.com/showthrea...-what-it-means)


    (me irl like 2 years ago)

    But along the lines of music, i think its more of a psychological thing then trying to fit in. I seem to enjoy music once it is played more often because i become used to it(this can go eitherway). I originally hated u2 i found them annoying and that their songs all sounded the same. But they grew on me.

    of course, il wear my fury outfit to the interview instead.

    But in the case of originality, nothing is original when you get down to it. everything we draw or make is based off of past experiences. We put a little from those experiences into our art, music, and even what we do and wear regardless of the motivation.

    I think what he means in terms of originality is yes "be yourself." Like something because you like it and not because someone else likes it.

    Just don't take things to seriously when it comes to your art stuff and improve in time, that's probably the best thing to do !

    True, but not everything though, Creating beats and drawing and whatever more can come out of total self expression/creativity, it's a matter of how much media you've followed and let print into your brain.
    I try to keep my art original, but still good looking for myself, and applying a bit of advice I got from some people like Vinyl and Goober.

    It depends on what has been thrown at you from when you were a kid, look at (not stereotyping them all) african hunter families that still live in forests, they also painted the bodies of each other and no one thought them that, it's a strider thing. Proffesional Tattoo artists for an example also have a lot of creativity.
    People who are categorized as schizophrenic can see things we don't and they see things that are completely unusual for us because we haven't seen it, ever.

    I'm not sure how to formulate what I wanted to say because of my ADD, I have a very jumpy mind

    I don't actually, I improve thanks to critique, I know I still need to learn a lot, thanks for the motivation though ^^

    No i understand comoletly what your getting at and its a great point.

    a better example would be people under the influence of hallucinatory drugs, they see things that some people can't even imagine and this can be attributed to originality.

    Definitely, just for an example try imagining a new color in your head.
