- Yes. I took a break from sims.
- Yes. I went back to Dragon Cave.
- And the most important, recent news, is that I made a mish-mash out of my computer OS!
Yep. It’s unuseable at the moment, because I deleted a system file by accident, my anti-virus stopped working and the little trojan devil that’s been hiding in the shadows all this time found its best opportunity to show me his fangs/finger and eat up my ability to use my (beloved) computer. So yeah, can’t draw my comic, can’t play my sims anymore, can’t sprite. So, I’m fucked until tomorrow. I’ve been frustrated the whole weekend. I miss my simmies, I miss drawing, I miss spriting. ;_; Hopefully the guy who comes around tomorrow morning to re-install my XP (yes, laugh at me, but I have used this OS for the last 6 years and I’m used to it and dun wanna change it for the newer shit!), because I am running Win 7 on the laptop and I hate it, will be able to put my saved games, work files, documents and comic- related shizz in a safe place.
- About Dragon Cave…
Yeah, I am pretty much back there, but I don’t know. The thoughts and feelings that made me take a break from that place are instantly back. You see, I’ve been given a ton of crap in my first year as an in-cave spriter. I’ve been banned from some places for ‘spoiling’ or isolated for prefering to go solo, not sharing more info about myself and lying about my age.
Not to mentioned I’ve been ass-kissed and ass-stabbed by the same person around Christmas last year… Because apparently I need to ‘grow up’ and suck it because there is no such thing as a sprite release without drama. Actually, the event has been pretty much drama-free, until said person walked in. 😐
Okay. Fuck this. It’s beyond any importance.
So, I found that recently I became an Encyclopedia Dramatica ‘star’ thanks to that ‘drama’ from back then. LOLWUT. 😀 That one paragraph isn’t at all old so it pretty much sounds like some sort of ‘revenge’ calling me a ‘Not-so-Mighty Artist’. Not to mention someone deleted the evidence that still showed up in the search engine. I seriously don’t give a fuck about that site, I mostly go there for lulz and whoever thought it was a smart idea to use it as a way to ”hurt my feelings” , failed miserably. I find it highly amusing, so thanks for giving me a good laugh. 🙂
The artists currently dwelling DC are really cool people actually. So are the most of the user base who supported me and other artists in what we do, without bawwing over the smallest things.
So, BIG THANKS to all who sent me a PM after Christmas and I couldn’t answer to! I must have got a hundred of them! o.o ^_^ They were ALL read, appreciated and heart-warming. ❤
But the crap and angst I’ve been through, is not something I will ever forget. There are also several people who quit for the same reasons, because let’s face it: that place was scary a couple of years ago. But I just did not want to quit. And at one point I started to act like a bully myself. I’m not proud of it. So, I apologize to all those I‘ve hurt, altho some of the reactions I got, make me not entirely regret it.
Truth is, I feel a little awkward to still be there after all of it. And I don’t know what to do -.- Continue as a spriter, only stick to making my comic and play sims in the spare time… Do them all?
It’s a tough decision, believe me.
I *still* want to be a spriter, yesh, but then again spriting is what made me quit sticking to making comics and writing stories. I should probably choose the latter and become a better comic artist. I will probably make a sprite every now and then, but not so much.
Comic-making is not a drama-free domain, but it’s something I have total control over.
I don’t need anyone’s approval to do what I want. Once I publish a strip, it’s published and it’s world-wide. And most importantly, it’s MINE.
