When I draw, I focus on what I want to draw instead of what it’s trending, however, I can find some of my interests overlapping with a few trends here and there when the planets align (iykyk) but it was nothing but a mere coincidence and even if I share some, for some reason when it trends I just can’t get myself to do it… XD I’m more focused on what my interests are and what I have fun drawing/doing, I find it exhausting finding out what’s trending only to try it myself but I do respect those who have that mindset, I just can’t do it myself (and have no interest in doing it).
Little side note, the only thing that has caught my eye in the article you linked was number 8, the intricate lettering, I liked the idea but the examples were waaay too detailed, it was difficult to pay attention to so that’s inspired me to try it myself. Thank you haha
I don’t really care for most of the trends it talks about except the use of 3D, animation and intricate lettering.
I also felt identified with that quote, as an animator and 3d artist, I felt nothing when reading the animation and 3d works parts in the article’s. There surely is a lot of wonderful works but as @Takiro said, I don’t see how any of this could be trending. I don’t see what the fuzz is about, I love seeing people enjoying other techniques of art anyway so good for them. :]
