When you’re sending a message to a writer or an artist, please think and consider if it’s courteous before sending it.  The same goes for sending a message to anyone.  I know you might think it’s harmless, and you don’t intend for it to be, but many messages can come off as very rude and hurtful.  

Also, since this is the internet, you can’t really hear intonation.  For example, if you send something like “Draw (insert character)!” it sounds very rude and like a command, as opposed to someone asking me in real life with a polite tone. 

Please remember many artists and writers are not obligated to do the things you want them to without payment.  If an artist or writer is creating something you don’t like, please don’t come to their inbox and tell them what to draw and what not to draw.  Think about how incredibly rude that is.  This is like someone to telling you what to wear or how you cut your hair.  Art is a part of an artist, and tend to be things they like, so just realize this.  I see too many messages and tags saying things like “this art would have been better if it were a different ship” or “draw more (insert ship)” or “why aren’t you writing more (insert fic)!”  That is very mean, rude, and inconsiderate.  Art takes time, energy, and willpower.  Please realize that these kinds of messages can be so hurtful, they discourage and chase artists away.  

Artists of all kinds create to express, communicate, have fun, and all that good stuff, so please, think before you send a message.  You could possibly think about how you might ask someone in person.  ”Could you please draw (insert whatever)?”  Don’t be afraid to use “please” and “thank you!”  And again, not all artists take requests, and all artists do not have to draw your request.  Please don’t take that to heart, and move on.  Maybe you can make some cool stuff of your own! <:

Hmm for the artist ask meme, how about 27 and 30?

How many layers does a typical piece require?
Depending on the complexity, 100 layers or more. I also label the important layers so there could even be more.

What inspires you to not just make art, but to be a better artist?
I like the feeling of accomplishment. Also the fact that I could build a future off of my love of art. I’m not good at anything else and I’m quite absent-minded.

for ask meme, 5 & 6 !!

falynevarger said: Dooo iiit! Even if there is no VN to draw for, do it anyway. Develop your own characters, gui, and backgrounds. It’s a blast. :) Then you may even be inspired to write a story around the art. It’s pretty easy to make a game using Ren’py.
felipone said: I think you could make one yourself someday about your original characters ^^ That’s one of my dreams as well too, hehe

Yeah! It would also make great practice! I guess my issue is that I can’t write stories or write music. I wish I could put together a team but I don’t think anybody would be interested in taking over my story as it is XD;;; I don’t know what to doo!

Maybe it would be interesting as a slice-of-life withut any plot…. Also I’ve heard of Ren’py! I tried it and it is pretty user-friendly~ it seems to have a decently sized VN library created by its users

why do people look like their art styles so much
like
they don’t look exactly like it
but you can look at a person then at their art then back at the person and be like “yes, this is definitely the person who drew this”

People complaining about my interpretation of gender bent Hanji because she is apparently nonbinary. Well hey I interpret Hanji as a woman, therefore, I drew her genderbent as a male.

Everybody is entitled to their own interpretations so don’t correct the artist because “This character is actually X”. In that case why don’t you bitch at all the tumblr artists who draw Marco as black even though he’s clearly white in canon? Or the people who still see Nanaba as a guy?  I will draw the character how I interpret them and if you have a problem with that then keep it to yourself.
