When people ask me to draw something for them I don’t really know what to answer. A cousin of mine (that I don’t really know that well) wants me to design a tattoo for her. And a friend (I don’t talk to her much these days) asked me to draw a camera for her.
Of course, they expect me to do this for free.
When I told my aunt (and my mom, it was a while ago) that I wanted to get payed they literally laughed out loud, they thought I was joking… If you don’t respect me and my skills enough to pay for this service I provide for you I will never draw anything for free even if you’re related or a friend.
ANYWAY, I could go on, but let’s just get to where I wanted get with this - Tumblr got a lot of good post on why artists should be respected and why being an artist should be treated like any other profession. But I wasn’t smart enough to collect them in my likes whenever they would appear on my dash. I want something to link people to whenever someone asks me to draw something for free to them. So if you have any of these kind of posts on your blog or in your likes, could you link them to me please?
Touch the leaf. Feel the leaf. Sniff the leaf. Lick the leaf. Wash the leaf. Embrace the leaf. Kiss the leaf. Date the leaf.
BE THE LEAF

This is how they look like now! You can tell how much taller they are than me now by the angle of the first picture, hehe.
The Sunflower Story
There’s a few days between the upper and bottom picture. I took these pictures a few days ago, but didn’t get around to post them until now. More pictures soon, they look really majestic now.
I haven’t had much time or energy to keep up with all the ORAS news lately, but I love how they are expanding the Secret Base feature. But it seems like people are afraid that character customization won’t return in these games after seeing the Super-Secret base screenshots since the characters shown inside the bases are default NPC models, and for a while I feared the same thing. But after looking more into it I still think character customization will return in ORAS. So let me just throw out my theory to why the characters that appear in these Secret Bases are default NPC models and not the player’s own character.
This have been the worst week of my life.
damnit a walking leaf finally appeared and it confused me so I missed it >8U And it seems like tarantulas stopped spawning in my town.
