:icondarkmario2:DarkMario2 posted a status
I'm getting into that mode where it feels like I'm being ignored and I hate it when I do that. I hate it when people beg for attention but I guess I need to vent a little.

It just kinda annoys me when I get no response at all. Very few people have said anything over the course of my last few statuses. I get that school is still a thing for some people and not everyone is in the same time zone but the radio silence is killing me. I also get that not everyone has stuff to say. I'm like that too. I like reading comments and when I get none it eats at me.

It seems like anything I talk about or upload that doesn't have to do with the Crew and their story just goes right past peoples heads without them even looking back. AoS is a story I've been working on for years and it just feels like no one cares. I know I should just do what I want and not care what people think but it would be nice if it at least got acknowledged when I do.

Again I hate myself for making this but I really needed to vent.

Honestly, I know how you feel, and this is coming from someone whose art gets barely any attention, if at all.

You probably don't remember, but way back when you commented on one of my pieces, this one to be exact. At the time I was so happy to receive a comment from just about anyone 'cause it meant I was gaining some form of recognition and replied to it accordingly, but you were probably weirded out with my response (as you didn't reply back) and for that I've wanted to make amends for all this time. Sorry...

Anyway, as for your AoS story, I'm sorry, but I'm another one of those people who doesn't really care to read it (I've never been one for 'reading' stories, I've always had trouble reading large walls of text without my mind wandering and becoming fidgety) but instead cares only for your Splatoon-related content. So I do apologise if hearing that disheartens you.

I've been reading Ace of Spades and I've been enjoying it so far. I'm just don't usually comment on stuff. But yea I like reading comments too and I know the feeling of not getting comments.

i don't comment all the much amyway. and as of AoS, it's not that i don't care about it, i'm just not into reading. i get bored easily, and lose interest. i read like the first 3 sentences and then i get distracted and then i forget where i was and then i move on

*sigh* Sorry but

I'm indifferent

So the amount of things I actually care about is from very little to nothing

And I'm afraid AoS is not part of the list

Uh... Not right off but I can think of a few things I've told people over stuff like this. I've been trying to follow my own logic but it still eats at me sometimes.

Your pain is quite understandable and relatable... but I have to say I'm one of the people who doesn't really care for Ace of Spades.
I did read the first two chapters, but it never caught my interest. I should have left a comment on them to let you know.
Still, I hope the story picks up some followers. It's like those people who do one game on youtube, and that's all everyone subscribes for.
After that, no other game gets acknowledged... I know Minecraft was a huge thing in that regard. LOADS of people got hounded to play it when they didn't want to.

Yeah I can see that. I've done that. I subbed to some people because I saw some stuff I liked but then months went by with nothing good from them and I just stopped watching.


I can see if it's not your thing but maybe give it another chance. I honestly think it gets better as it goes.

Maybe. One thing that kinda puts me off is its written format.
I feel like I'm reading the script to a play, and that's not always suitable for a story.
I'd try giving a bit more emphasis on the visuals of a story, it helps give a bit more punch to it and helps with retention.

For example:
Gavin kicked a stone down the road of his neighborhood, upset at his mother.
Gavin kicked a jagged stone down the weathered concrete road of his neighborhood, visibly upset and tense with his mother due to the argument they had.

Giving the world more description makes people want to visualize it, and hooks the reader.
It's just a suggestion, but it might help out.

I've been trying to do that actually. Maybe I need more detail. I thought I was already doing that though...

I've been trying to make this visual. I established early on what this world looks like so I didn't really call attention to it but when I picture the city I see a black and white almost noir-like setting. Everything is gray so that when the colors show up they are more vibrant then they normally would be.

Well, i'll give it another read and see if it will grab my attention. If not, then sorry.

I know that feeling. Every time I post a new artwork, I get a bunch of faves but less of comments. Which I now understand why that bothers people.
I'm really sorry that your in this situation.
