Attempting to draw a cat by CookiemagiK

When I first saw this drawing, I must admit that after a quick look on the cat, it was the text that really got my attention and made m...


Custom Wallpaper - Castlevania SotN 03 by Alma-de-Gato
Custom Wallpaper - Castlevania SotN 03
Long Library highlight.
I'll be posting a series of wallpapers I made from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night's graphics for my personal use.
The original maps were downloaded from Castlevania Crypt's map section:
Of course I'm only posting these because I edited them, so the ones I can't do a nice work on won't be posted.

This is the Long Library, home to the old librarian, filled with books you'll never read and some that might even kill you.
This one took some time to please me. The original library's rooms wouldn't match when put together like this.
After some time looking at the original, I decided to ignore all that and replace everything I wanted with the brown walls.
The last big change was the top right and it took some time to decide what to do there, since I removed a save room that was there.
In the end I used that part with ladders in the background from the middle-left to fill that spot, replacing the boring long corridor I had there before.

These are not intended to be perfect, just pleasant to the eyes(without empty spots and stuff like that).

Original artwork belongs to Konami and whoever else has rights over the game's artwork.
In my opinion of course.

In short, it's quite simple: Because skill is not subjective.

It's also because you don't need quality to make art, to express yourself.
Still, you do need skill to make great art.

In case this makes sense to you, that would mean most people voting 'yes' on the poll saying it is subjective can't recognize skill over just pure artistic expression.
Even though I'm no professional artist, I'm not that amateur that I can't see the value of those that are professional and that go to great lengths to create amazing works of art, with their skill and artistic vision.

If you voted 'yes', think again. Art without quality is still art, but quality art is much more than just raw expression.

I feel like improving what is not yet perfect. Might aswell do it now.
Time to think, to feel, to write, to draw, to compose, to imagine, to code, to give life and make alive, all of my dreams.
