ive been getting a lot of questions about adopts and how to make them uh.
im not the best person to ask. im still very new to the adopts world. the only reason why i did it was cause i love drawing/designing characters. people ask if i cater to people’s wants and needs in terms of designs and how i make the right choices.
i dont cater! there are no right choices. i dont ever go or think oh boy im sure my fans are going to like THIS SPECIFIC THING i just draw anything i deem to be fun and interesting. if i like it and im happy with the outcome, that’s all that matters, and i think it’s fantastic that people like what i like, its amazing we can have the same taste and interest in things and connect with that.
i create adopts because i know and love the feeling of having a character that i pour my love into and build stories and fun relationships around. i bought my first actual adopt from a dear friend of mine @bataid, and the feeling of getting a character design from a talented and loving person was very honoring. this person chose to design me something out of thin air! how neat is that!!! from that character alone sprung stories, interactions, etc. so much thought and care went into this! creating characters for others to use and experience those feelings is my goal, characters are very important! they can do so much for us in our lives.
i guess my only advice if you want to do adopts is to have fun with it. dont get too discouraged if your adopts dont sell either it doesn’t mean your adopts are bad. it’s fine to follow the trends and see what is popular atm and add that little touch! just look at your adopts and go, “would i want these and would i care for these.” people can tell if you care about something or if you half ass something. have a good time with it.
