I drew this to prove a point. I was accused of not really arting and of stealing my own work! At first I thought that it was a joke, but it turns out that someone else had posted one of my pictures as theirs!
So I told the loudmouth to pick an image and I would draw it the same day. This is what he chose.
So I began to work on it immediately. I didn’t like being accused of crap. And others were online defending me, but I didn’t care. I was out to prove a point.
When I finished I asked if he believed me now. He then apologized and asked if he could have the drawing for proof. I said no. And this is where it gets bizarre!
He began ranting about what a crappy artist I was and how I hadn’t wanted to draw it anyway, so I should just be “cool” and give it to him. Finally the lightbulb went off. I’d been scammed!
There was never “another artist”. He simply wanted me to draw this image and tricked me into doing so. I felt really dumb. I just stopped engaging him in conversation.
