Or they’re just
and this confession just reeks of entitlement, jesus
artists shouldn’t have to ~prove~ anything about how grateful they are, especially because they’re not doing exactly what you want them to do
Not to mention some artists are just incredibly shy people, even online.
Yo I don’t reply to shit. I never have anything interesting to say, and I’m not funny, and I assume people are tired of hearing “thanx” on dA.
this reads more like “Im an unlikable douche and people who draw dont wanna be frens with me” more than anything else.
why suddenly having a lot of followers forces you too befriend every single one? lest you turn into an ungrateful snob? Its not like peopel who like something are doing anyone a favor..
I find the complete opposite to be true. The less you engage with your audiance, the more your audience WANT you to engage with them. But too little engagement turns people off. You need a light touch.
Artists that run their online ordnance like a faggy diary/ask for all just seem self absorbed.
The less you talk to me, the more I like you.
Or maybe I’m full of shit. I always end up being friends with the people I respect admire. maybe intimate communication with each specific admirer is what’s needed, rather than ‘HEY FANS LOOK AT MY RUMP’.
I’m on speaking terms with my four favourate porn artists. I’ve met Simon peg four times, at the last beer was consumed. I’ve been collaborating with the TF2 creators I’ve admired the most recently. Kilo drew me a comic cover for the sniper xmas comic. I’ve even had the chance to work closely with Valve themselves on things.
I have no idea how fandom works. It just does.
