Someone said something to me recently about having no respect for a friend of mine but put me under the impression that I’m perfectly likable, myself. And at first I thought, that’s strange but not everyone likes everyone else.
But as I let it brew over a day or so I realized that its kind of hard not to have respect for someone you neither know, nor have you ever spoken to. I tried to be really nice about it but I just feel like I shouldn’t pretend to NOT know where a comment like that comes from.
I am once again and further disappointed by people I wanted to like soaking things up so narrow-mindedly. I’d like to think that I try to associate myself with people who don’t put stock into the poisonous words of two-faced liars and thieves.
You know, Lochichi, you're starting to strike me as sort of a kiss ass and a bit of a beggar. :/
Anon, believe me when I say that you’re glad that I ONLY strike you as that because I huge and I’m mean. I don’t have fuckin’ finger nails, I’ve got God damn talons and I’d rake your face if I could.
Don’t fuck with me and get off my page. We’re not gonna do the witty dance today, I’m not in the mood.
Let me amend this by saying it is 7AM, I just woke, my bathroom is flooded and fuck you.
And it is JUST as much fun to imagine smacking the shit out of you for not knowing a god damn thing about me before letting your wiggly little fingers get out of hand as it must be for you to bombard people’s message centers with pussy anonymous shit head comments.
Hey guuuuys (bother) I’m still open for commissions! More so now than before as I’ve finally finished my last batch and…a few unexpected payments have come up. D; My half of bill this month is MIA. Usually I get a transfer once a month so that I can do that. But…not this month apparently. I’d like not to bring this to my parents as they already do so much (pay for school blah blah) and I feel like a bag of crap because of it.
I think you had just the right amount of attitude for that sort of question...
...I mean, REALLY—the nerve of some people! I often doubt that people realize the amount of time and effort that goes into creating art. You deserve to be paid for that. No if's, and's, or but's about it. My roommate used to offer commission and did a lot of business with the furry community, and just some of the stories she's told me... I mean, not only of people ripping her off for extra art or weaseling out of paying price, but of people bragging about doing that sort of thing TO HER FACE. Absolutely disgusting.
Sorry about that rambly-rant, but honestly, people ought to be happy that you've even offering to draw commissions! I know that I'm going to try to talk my lover into buying me one... unless you plan on offering them for a while, in which I could probably snag one in a couple months. Needs me some Lochi arts to hang on my walls.
Aw yeah, it happens every once and a while. I try to be polite because I know some people don’t understand. But every now and again I feel like its important to put it right out there. Its really no different than haggling and while haggling at a junk shop or a flee market full of off brand or used things can be profitable to both the buyer and the merchant (who purposefully marks it up) you wouldn’t ask a man who works construction to work more hours with no overtime.
And thank you for your consideration, I really appreciate it.
