    So i love FA to death and all the anthro artist ^_^ some dont talk much some dont have time....but some other anthro artist seem like they are just plain their for the money. Or just are their to not really be apart of the community but to soak up all the views. Ive talked with quite a few of them, and tried to chat with them on streams

    I was on a stream the other day and 2 talented rather large anthro artist wher on their that i was a huge fan of! I was so exited to talk to them and i told them how much i liked their art and asked for some advice wanted to ask is they would check out my art .......thats it....

    The stream went like this --> "HI ima huge fan of your work""um i just wanted to show you my art ^^ you have the same name as my anthro rat so i though you might like him ! --> "also im visually impaired so i might not have the best spelling ^_^" :Artist-"lol" (he put lol after i said i was impaired) :Artist: yea i saw it...your art is trash dude" ....me-> ...ok well i....:artist -Fuck off rooster *BANNED* and wile i was banned the other artist was laughing at me! that was the last time i ever went to a steam. I felt horrible that a artist that i loved ...hated me my fursona and my art.... kinda made me sad but i know not every one is like that...but it seems like 90% of them are.


    You guys have any horrible exp with bigger artists? like this?

    I forgot to ad the part wher they they loled at my impaired -slighty visulity inpared as my icon fursona kinda shows aka Sizer. ( I added that later as i hope he just diddet believe me.. he coudent have been that mean could he?.....any ways i was very heart broken and i diddet even block him as i DO think hes VERY talented but after that...i never looked at a stream or hes fa page the same way agen. I know this iset the case with all big fa users but still....

    What an asshole.
    He could have given constructive criticism on how to get better
    But no he had to be a dick to you.

    Such a piece of shit that guy was
    including the other artist.

    I mean i was gonna say that people who are a bit stuck up are inevitable in communities with popular users and that you just gotta deal with it but that's a whole new level of bullshit. That's horrible and they should have just ignored you if that's what they truly believed.

    Their entire reaction was uncalled for. As someone who's only popular because of their fans one would think they'd be more grateful towards them. Those people are the reason they're anyone in this community. Not their talent. Talent don't mean shit if nobody knows your name, otherwise every higher quality artist would be famous. These people should think about that next time they insult a fan who simply wants constructive criticism from their inspirations.

    Oh btw thanks for the profile comment!

    You know what
    That sounds like a great origin story on how you became an evil rooster
    I said that because of what it said in your profile.

    But back on topic don't worry about them.
    They are obviously too blinded by their egos
    I bet they are losing watchers because of that
    if not then I don't know anymore.

    But anyways you are a better person than them and I know you know that.
    You're going to rise to the top and show them you can be the best. You are going to make great art that everyone
    is going to like... Keep doing the things you love. Don't let some asshole on the internet tell you otherwise.
    Once you get to the top
    Just don't be like them.

    I'll admit, you were a tad direct with your approach, but that in no way justifies the person's response. If I were him, I may have felt a bit uncomfortable and confused, but I wouldn't be like "Your art sucks! **** off!" or anything like that.

    Both with bigger and smaller ones. Depends on people in general, popular or not. I know several popular, big artists who I actually became friends with, exchanged snail-mails with goodies, and just plan to meet personally; likewise, I know some artists who have a disproportionately big ego for their lack of achievements. Douchbaggery doesn't come with popularity, it's just that popularity is a good test for possible douchbaggery.

    Steelite Way too much salt and edge

    That's just... wow.
    Kind of reminds me of some ungrateful sucker I met years ago. Let's call him X.
    His brother (let's call Y) requested me for a surprise birthday gift, so I made one, and asked him (Y) to repost it on his page, which he did.
    X's comment for my effort ?
    Probably the best one I've ever seen in centuries.
    Literally just that one word. For a surprise gift for his birthday.
    I swear to hell, I fucking lost all hope in doing people's requests after that.

    Geez, that's a lousy thing to have happen, but people can really be jerks, and it seems that sometimes, the more 'popular' artists can let things go to their head, and get these attitudes. It's sad to see, but better to move on, and ignore them.

    Oh, and it's curious, I also have some visual issues; I have to enlarge things to type, and re-read my posts, and don't drive...and it really sucks to have people use stuff like that that makes life hard enough, as an insult: I mean, that's about as low as a person can get.

    Well, I've loved what I've seen, believe in yourself, and go on with making art and working to find meaning and happiness in it, and screw this mean furs who think they are oh-so--important!

    You're not the only one popufurs abuse. I had one tell me to stop making adopts because they were shitty sparkle spawns, just like me.

    So I made more sparkle spawns and told him to shove it.

    (He made a journal telling his fans to tell me I suck and I got him reported for it. Serves him!)

    Money ruins everything.

    The artist wasn't asshole, he was just honest. Most people think the way he does, but don't have guts to tell or care too much about their own facade.

    That reminds me of Secret Santa at RP Repository one year. I was tasked to draw a Siren with her pet bird, and I feared I would have to draw a human/demihuman like that. And yet, I put my all into it. I drew the character to the absolute mest of my abilities and STILL wasn't happy with it, so I added a background to it as well. I also followed every single one of the person's requests: the outfit, the bird, everything. I put more work into a character I had no connection with than I do with my own characters that I hold near and dear. ...But when it came time to show the picture to her, what did she say?

    ...Nothing. ...Not until I badgered her a bit did she finally respond, but I still felt bad that it took so long for a response, it felt like I did it for nothing. So with that in mind, I can understand how you feel.

    Even then, if he was being honest you can say things a nicer way
    Fuck off sounds rude
    He could have written “i’m Sorry, but I am not interested to hear more”
    I have it like he might thought “fuck another generic fan who just wanna pester and ask for request” which is typically when people is “see my OC”

    Some artists are nice, but other artists are abrasive jerks. It's surprisingly difficult, if not impossible, to tell which is which just by looking at their art. I've had some big names give me the cold shoulder, while others have introduced themselves first and asked for trades. You never know.

    That being said, I think you're onto something. Back in the day, a higher percentage of furry artists were also fans. We were fans of each other! Or at least that's how it seemed to me. I was happy to interact with "better" artists and "worse" artists as peers. We were in this fandom because we liked the genre. There was more to it than popularity or paying the bills. There didn't seem to be as many opportunists. While I'm saddened by what happened to you, I'm not surprised.
