Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh by Spottedfire-cat Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh by Spottedfire-cat
As of recently, I have been recieving comments and stuff along the lines of saying that I don't pay attention to my fans, and that I never respond to fan art or questions or just about anything; and they're right. I don't respond to these things anymore, but it isn't because i've become a fame-striven individual; it's because people treat me like a famous person, which is much less the case it is. I am also only one person. ;w;

You see, I receive fan art pretty fluently. I love these fan arts; they make me smile and make me thinks that I am doing something right in the ways i'm trying to be active and stuff. However, this leaves me with a great number of amazing peeps who want feedback, which normally isn't a problem other than the fact that there are a great many people wanting that feedback to see how much I like the thing. I could just leave a generic message saying "Oh, I love this! Thanks~ >w<", favorite it, and then be on my way, but it's gotten to the point that i'm really afraid to try and catch up on this because everything's just gonna loop again no matter what I try to do. People will draw fanart, they want feedback, too many fanarts, scared to respond, and if I try to catch up, that fear's just gonna re-emerge again and more people will be dissappointed.

But you know what? Wanting feedback for something you drew isn't bad at all. In all honesty, the only thing that is bad is my lack of dealing with this responsibility of having amazing fans that do draw me things. I could put the blame of my increasing fear of socializing and being a disappointment, but that is just a silly thing anyways and I don't deserve pity and that's also a personal thing. It's all just a really sad situation, and I hate to see people sad through something that is my fault.

Just . . . i'm really sorry about everything. ;w;

you're not a disappointment to me spotty. in fact, your style has given me a bit of a play on my own style at the moment. i'm toying around with something simpler than my usual stuff.

people who get flooded with fan mail tend to not be able to read it all, much less respond to it. there's really not much you can do about it. (except mabie hire someone to go through all of it for you.) (jk. jk. your own methods are your own.)

:D all in all, you've been an inspiration, that's something to be happy about!~

hey, you make art, not comments. people seem to have forgotten that owo. you should NOT feel bad for those people who have forgotten the simple fact of popularity, so yeah. no one needs to feel bad just because there are overexcited fans thatr cut themselves or state hater comments just because their.. BIGGEST IDOL EVER apperantly did not reply c:

i am watching your art quietly, but not physacly pressing the watch button, and no comments come from me. i wish people would understand that they wont be your friends just because they added another comment to your two hundred other ones. hope this helped, spotty c:

They have to understand you have a life, and can't always get a chance to respond to every fan art

I'm not as popular as you,and I'll NEVER be,but I'm starting to be quiet popular and I haven't many free time,and I still have 573 messages...I really need to delete some of them =w= At least when someone draw you a fanart,you should fave this or give them a sign you've seen this and you love it :-3

thanks for explaining to us Spotty!

then again, you probably get like... say over 500 messages. and half of that is fanart. then it would be hard to respond to all of them.
people just need to understand how hard it is being a famous person.

Spotty...*hug* Not everyone has the ability to pay attention sometimes. You've become who you are with everyone supporting you. To give you an example......^^; I'm not as popular as you, and I sometimes don't answer messages at all...but I try my hardest to make things happen...:iconsighingplz:...and sometimes it doesn't help.

In short, nobody's perfect...if we were, no one would have a flaw that would set us all apart...to show how very much humanity is unique in our own way. I wish I could draw like you and another artist on Youtube. You and her were the inspiration I was looking for when I started on here and it's made me come so far in a short amount of time.

In truth, I say thank you. Thank you and Grin so much for how you set the boundaries sky high for so many that look for inspiration and guidance...as a full-blown Sonic Artist, I always seemed like I couldn't get far alone...again, I thank you. :iconbowplz::iconthankyoutailsplz:

I think it's great of you to actually admit to this and explain why c:

I adore your art ability but at the end of the day, you're just one person. It's impossible, or at least hugely difficult to respond to so many people. When there are artists that could but simply don't bother? That annoys me. But I see you get heaps of comments xD Even on this journal you're getting a lot in.
But that's also partially why I don't comment. I fav and run |D I'm too used to never getting replies anyway, so I don't tend to bother to comment.

I'm a silent stalker. Most of the time ;n;

I think if other people had been in your situation they'd understand better. The problem is that most of us haven't.
