People don’t always know the right way to talk to artists … so I made a guide. There’s a lot more I could have added, but these are the basics.
Some artists will draw your OC for free, but make sure that they are okay with doing that before asking. Otherwise, you’re being rude.
Seriously, don’t put yourself down to compliment others. That just puts them in an awkward position and stunts the goodness of yourself as well.
ALSO WHEN TALKING TO PEOPLE OF THE DARK ARTS:
We HATE IT when we show something that we are proud of to somebody and their response is “that’s good but it’s really creepy”
Please don’t say “that’s really good but”
It’s meant to be creepy. It’s how we are. STOP SAYING THAT, IT MAKES IT FEEL LIKE ITS NOT ACCEPTABLE BECAUSE ITS CREEPY. PLEASE LOOK AT THE ART INSTEAD OF JUST DEEMING IT AS CREEPY. WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT WAYS OF EXPRESSING OURSELVES.
