The Jinji the Gengar universe is a headcanon I've designed based on concepts I myself have developed. As a result, I mainly focus on self-composed stories, poetry and character descriptions, though I am also beginning to get into drawing as well.
Occasionally however, I receive Notes asking for requests, trades and so on. The following lists my views on each of these:
As I mainly prefer to work on my own initative and find it pressurising to work to a brief or under deadlines, I typically do not take requests. I may sometimes make exceptions for strong ideas where I am able to create a concept easily, but do not expect this.
Similar to requests, it is my belief that Art Trades put too much pressure on both parties to work to a similar standard and be timely, and it can sometimes make one or both parties unconfident in their abilities in comparision to their partner. Additionally, there have been occasions where I have agreed to art trades where the other party has failed to uphold their end of the bargain. For that reason, I am NOT open to Art Trades. Exceptions will only be made for close friends where there is a clear understanding of what is expected from each party.
I *love* it when people ask me to write stories in order to turn into artwork, or writing stories based on artwork people have already made. If you want to collab with me, just let me know your ideas and I'll get back to you on if it's something I might be interested in :)
If you're a fan of my stories, consider becoming my Patreon at https://patreon.com/jinji and chipping in some money each month so I can earn a living. Some stories are published early to my Patrons before they get public release; and I may even allow long-time Patrons to make requests if I'm in the mood ^^
While I appreciate all my followers and am very happy when I hit certain milestones, I don't believe in entitlement. If you're gonna follow me with the expectation that I'm gonna make something for you just because you made me "hit a milestone", I'm probably just gonna block you straight away.
One more thing: I write in my spare time and when I feel like I have something solid to write about. This means my submissions can be erratic and spontaneous, and typically don't follow any release schedule. If you don't like waiting to read new things, don't follow me. Thanks!
Happy Birthday!! ^^
(It’s still the 23rd for me and I’ve been waiting for this moment for a LONG time!)
