A couple of times I’ve posted a painting, and I get feedback about:
- the artwork reminding the person of some random book or character I’ve never heard about,
- the artwork reminds them of an existing painting or artist’s style (depending on how this is done, this can either be a compliment or a veiled snark)
- Some pieces people swear that I’ve referenced a particular famous person (when I haven’t)
- I’ve even had someone tell me that my interpretation of a myth/ goddess was wrong and insinuated it was an insult to their religion.
