THANK YOU

KittyDivider by phrysethKittyDivider by phryseth
In the wake of some truly disgusting activity in the gaming industry right now, I’ve been grappling with a moral dilemma concerning what I would recommend young artists do with their chosen career paths.

Phil Fish Hacked
Phil Fish, the creator of FEZ, is pretty much universally hated by people online. Recently he spoke out in favor of Zoe Quinn, creator of Depression Quest, who was herself under fire from internet thought police for “corrupting” games journalism’s integrity by sleeping with journalists to get favorable reviews of her game (allegations which later proved to be untrue). Because he spoke out in favor of Zoe Quinn, Phil found himself under a massive internet attack, wherein hackers compromised his SSI, passwords, Polytron's PayPal account, and other sensitive data.

In the wake of the attack, Phil Fish is now selling off the rights to FEZ and to Polytron. He left with this rather depressing twitter message: “I am done. I want out. RUN AWAY. Just don't do it. Give up your dreams. They are actually nightmares. Nothing is worth this. To every aspiring game developer out there: Don't. give up. It's not worth it. This is your audience. This is videogames."

The Moral Dilemma
Which brings us to the moral dilemma I mentioned earlier... Why bother? Why would ANYONE want to work in an industry where THIS is the result? Phil Fish is just one of hundreds of industry professionals “bullied” out of the industry by gamers. Many more, mostly women interestingly enough, are sent death threats, rape threats, bomb threats, had their personal information stolen, posted, hacked, etc. simply for speaking their mind. Anita Sarkeesian is a feminist blogger who made YouTube videos criticizing gaming for the depictions of women. She wasn’t writing up laws to take games away. She’s not “censoring” video games. She’s not trying to lock video games up or take them away... and yet she’s THE figurehead right now for how vitriolic, vindictive, and violent gamers can be to criticism.

It's weird... gamers WANT to be taken seriously... until someone tries to take them seriously and point out potential flaws in the industry. Then they just wanna get rid of that person. And it’s not just gaming either, you see this sort of thing in many other mediums as well, including comics. I’ve been the subject of many hateful campaigns, including doxxing attacks (which are illegal by the way). All because I, a comics artist, made some cartoons and posted them FOR FREE on the internet about feminism or gaming culture.

So if this is the average result of “doing what you love” on the internet... why bother? Why should ANYONE want to put themselves in a position where they could risk having THIS level of shit and hate lobbied against them? How can I, in good conscience, recommend a new artist to put themselves willingly through this sort of nonsense?

That’s what I’m grappling with right now... I honestly don’t know if I could possibly recommend becoming a comic artist or a game designer in good faith anymore... because this is the norm now. Enduring shirt storms, flare ups, hacking attacks, and possible real life dangers of being attacked or harmed... just because you draw a comic or make a video game? That’s almost masochistic when you think about it.

What Can Be Done
Unfortunately the only solution to fixing this problem and making the environment safer for everyone is to have people endure the shitstorms and MAKE it safer for everyone eventually. By speaking out, and taking the risk of becoming a target, you can help effect change and make a difference. That’s the other side to this dilemma. If we don’t have people standing up and bearing the brunt of the storm, no one else will eventually come to their aid or take up the call. But to take up the call you have to be prepared to endure some really MASSIVE shit which can potentially ruin your life so again... is it worth it?

I think in the end it is... but I don’t know if I’m one of those people who can endure. I don’t want to discourage young artists from trying to make a living doing what they love... but at the same time I can’t honestly recommend putting them in a position that might possibly leave them mentally scarred for life due to ongoing harassment.

I honestly would like some opinions about this topic because I am very confused and worried about the future of... well... comics and gaming and all the things I hold so dear. I want them to improve and get better and be welcomed and inviting for everyone... but I don’t know anymore about how awful and nasty the internet is to some of these people.

//edited jesus christ, i see so many cool characters //dies and casually raises it to 200 

Yep, pretty much stole this from :iconkaji-senpai: :icontobylaughplz:

SO

Just feel like working on chibi dogs, so decided to amke a list of them! 8DD Though its WHEN IM OPEN AND FEEL LIKE IT dont you dare rush me, I'll smack you first of all, then knock you out of the list. I dont know how long this will take xD

Examples:

Chibi - 2 by NishipuChibi - 1 by Nishipu


Rules : 

Anchor Bullet by Andilizi FERALS,DOGGIES, WOLVES , DOG-LIKE, DRAGON-LIKE DOGS, IDEK, CREATURES. BUT NO CATS.

Anchor Bullet by Andilizi make a journal or Poll about this, and post it in the comments with a ref 

Anchor Bullet by AndiliziDONT GIVE ME SOME SUPER COMPLICATED OC/ CHARACTER OMFG, I will shank you

Anchor Bullet by Andilizi So, dont rush me, no super complicated OCs, make s journal/poll , and its FREE so dont tell me how youd like it etc e-e

Anchor Bullet by Andilizi  ITS NOT FIRST COME FIRST SERVE

Anchor Bullet by Andilizi I will check if you made a journal/poll e-e is super tempted to write 'fool' to those who failed these super simple rules

Sorry if this seems super tight, rude.....wait, theres hella plenty rude shit in here. Its just people, people just............ugh, you guys know what Im talking about :iconmingplz:



I dont rant publicy very often but now I am putting my foot down.

Stop.Using.Me.

Every week I have to deal with some stranger I havent talked to trying to use me for all the watchers that have come to my account. Let me just make one thing straight, this is not an account to feature, help spread stuff and all that, this is my gallery. IF that makes you mad or upset then go be friggin mad and upset I dont give a flappityhockeypuck. I dont care if you think I have an ego for not wanting to feature you, and help out. Jesus grow up there are hundreds of ways to feature yourself if you got of your lazy asses.

STOP ASKING ME. Stop trying to GUILT trip me by using your sick pets or sick family memebers. Dont come to me if all you care about is views.

What pisses me of the most is that 99% of the time I get asked some kind of version of this are from people who BARELY talk to me or have never talked to me at all.

yeah this is a big pet peeve of mine, so if you do not want to get on my bad side, dont do this please, no one likes to be used, I do a lot for my watchers and those who follow me, and I use many hours daily spent on this site.

If you are a close friend there is an exception, you can use me however you want :la: just sing it and ill do it. I dont mind being used by my lovebugs

This also brings me to another thing. Dont force friendship on me because you want free sheets. Go buy them !!11one
Forcing friendship is the most akward thing ever and will end in 100% unsucsessfull friendseets

Now if you are butthurt because I am strict for once, then good, time to learn that people arent cinderellas and princess rolemodels, they are people, with their own lives.

Yes believe me, people stop respecting me because I am strict, people even stop having me as an idol because I tell them to follow dA's rules xD I must be a real villian. omg I should have a costume! maybe Ill make a design contest for it. I already have a cat >8D

I'M SORRY POST

KittyDivider by phrysethKittyDivider by phryseth


 Well, I want to apologize for the
 delay of the sketch commission/raffle,
 custom, adopt extras, collab and the
 personal projects. Some of you already
 know this, but I think it's better to let
 you know. Last few months I was hit by
 a fraud company that charges me with
 expensive bills. However, I'm now no
 longer having any business with the
 company so I take time to recover my
 financial problems. That's why I've
 been pumping out adopts like crazy.
 I need quick money. Still, there's a lot
 more problems but this is the major 
 one for now. And I'm happy you guys
 are so patiently wait for me. ;u;lll 
 And I'm sorry if some of you get
 irritated by me. u_u
 Anyhow, thank you~ <3
 I'll make it up slowly~ OTL
