I think I am going to be considered one of the people who ruins the egg field for people, but honestly? I am giving away copies of my favourite thing on the site - adorable adventure finxes and vynes. I’ve been adventuring specifically for them for a few days now and I was kinda sad to discover that people think my eggsful of site pets are below par and wasting their time.

I was talking about the confession about letting things go with an Aywas friend, and I said that generally, I don’t forgive people who don’t ask for forgiveness. I don’t mean that people have to come crawling to me personally, but without a quick “dear community, I was an ass and I’m sorry, I hope you will forgive me” damn right I am going to remain aloof from members who have shown their ass.

Apparently this makes me a horrible person, and bang goes the best friendship I have onsite. I’m annoyed, but my opinion has not changed. I guess now I see why most people don’t ask for forgiveness.

Honey, please. You did trace that corgi, there is no denying it. Just because you added tufts of fur and some lines in places that are not on the original photograph does not prove that you didn’t trace it. The fact that the face, legs, entire body match up with the original photo means you traced it. You cannot say you eyed a pictured and it came out with the exact measurements and proportions as the original.

Do you think we are that gullible? I am really not trying to be mean but it is offensive that you think we are too dumb to comprehend what you did. There is more pride in admitting what you did and moving on. The fact that you would flat out lie is shameful. 

I do not think you should quit art forever. You made a mistake and now you know not to do it again, or at least that is what I hope. Practice like everyone else.

I was looking in some Aywas blogs and I found some designs I made when I was a newbie. I just wanted to participate in a Halloween designing contest. You know, get into the community? I had fun making them, and seeing someone call them a piece of shit and saying they look like they took 10 minutes can really kick the spirit out of you. I know I’m better now, but it still hurt.

I get that Drei got a lot of breedings

I get that Drei does them at the pace she was asked

But don’t get pissy when people are mad that their SPEEDY breedings are taking longer than non SPEEDY breedings.

They were promised a quick, quality turnaround and they’re NOT GETTING IT. That’s it. It’s not Drei’s fault, but she also has to understand that people have every tight to be pissed when things aren’t delivered as promised.

If anything, the Speedy Breeding thing needs to be renamed. BEcuase it is literally the opposite of what it’s supposed to be.

Maybe I should leave the past behind. Forgetting it was not enough because it is still here with me. No matter where I go, there are still feelings clinging to this empty shell… I hate that I cannot remember anything. It is probably worse than knowing what was bothering me. Now I feel like my emotions are against me because I do not even know what is wrong.

I’ll never understand why the PBC team includes TWENTY FIVE artists that are perpetually on the switches thread. 

If they go so many weeks or months without assignments, maybe they should be retired from the team.

i have to admit every time i see a post about how popular artists are just name brands and that people pay ridiculous amounts of money just to get art from them that they could get for less from lesser known artists, i can’t help but be incredibly skeptical. 

i’ve played aywas as both an artist and a buyer of designs, but mostly a buyer of designs and this is my perspective for both stories: 

1. as an artist: when i was a newbie i made some designs before deciding that making custom designs on aywas wasn’t really my thing. the first design i ever auctioned off was autobid very quickly for 35 gp. later, i sold a 2-3 premades for a flat rate of 25 gp each. i was by no means a name brand artist (i was a newbie!), and i was quite surprised to see how much i got for my random art. so i thought, hey, aywas is really great for artists! 

2. as a buyer: now that i made more gp on aywas these days i am constantly scouting on the design forums for pretty custom designs to buy since i prefer buying other people’s designs to making my own. quite frankly, i seldom see any designs that appeal to me in any of the design shops. i see a lot of newbie artists who have potential but there’s pieces of execution in their designs that really turns me off. and then i see the “name brand artists” and they much more often have designs that seem well-drawn to me, but usually the designs aren’t quite interesting enough for me to want to pay 50 gp for a premade. but honestly, most designs from “name brand artists” i would snap up in an instant in the 20 gp or so range. if i saw designs of similar quality from talented newbies going in that range i would definitely snap them up in an instant too! but i keep searching the design forums and i can’t, so i guess to anyone who tells me there’s lots of good artists who can’t get a good price for designs on aywas… i have to ask where are their shops???? i am a willing buyer.

I’ve wanted a lairpartner since I joined. A few times my friends over the course of being on the site would be like “Hey, I’ll do that with you once we talk a little more, you know?” months and months later, they forget about it and consider someone else as if we never agreed…how long should I wait, years? I’m not untrustworthy, I hope not unlikable…  I try really hard to be patient but I don’t know anymore. I guess my friends just dont wanna say they don’t want to. I was hoping to do it since it kinda makes us closer I think…but I guess we’ll never be that close.  I’m just venting now but this is my confession.
