It’s one thing wanting to interact with my characters. That’s fuckin’ awesome. Let’s do it.
But when I see an almost demanding tone in order to force interaction between my and your characters, that’s another thing…
And especially when I see this:
First post is also the first art I did for this site :P. I did this for http://askmisszion.tumblr.com/ trying to help one of her characters out of a funk. And maybe to get my character and art in her amassing story (Let’s just keep that part between us, K?) The top picture is just a reference to draw off later, the lower picture is my character collapsing in front of Jacob. Here is to hoping she uses it.
Welcome to the community. But this is not a way to start out.
I don’t like my characters being used as a springboard. I like my characters to have genuine interactions that aren’t being pushed onto me because you ultimately want something out of it.
And the fact that you can’t bring that to my attention directly, is even worse. That means that you're more than aware of what you’re doing. It’d be different if you weren’t sure how to get going and that was just a test at trying to reach out to someone. I could forgive that. But saying to “keep that part between us” is enough to know that you are very much conscious of what you’re doing.
Don’t do it to me, don’t do it to anybody. It’s something that can be easily frowned on, and I’d like for you and your character to be taken seriously without something like this to completely bar you from any interaction moving forward.
To that person, if they follow this blog, I’m not using the submission, they will not be getting an interaction with Jacob, and understand that I’m not quite putting you on blast. I’m just letting you know that I’m aware, and that you should probably think of approaching others differently next time.
