Does being emotionally invested in art makes it better?
Whenever I draw things that I'm not emotionally invested in they come out looking much better than those which I do.
I believe that this is because I can just cut and delete and edit without caring too much about the subject. I can see it more objectively. I believe that this is why doctors are discouraged to treat family members.
I tend to procrastinate a lot when I draw something that I really care about. Something too personal. It feels painful.
So ideally I would just be more detached right?
But how would you feel if a piece of art that has really changed you and affected you turned out to be nothing but a cold mechanical process? Something that the artist didn't really cared about. Wouldn't you feel betrayed?
I don't want to give those kinds of feelings to the audience.
What's you attitude towards this Anons?
