**I may not always be available to do commissions. Message me and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.**

If you'd like a commission, message me with a genre and/or a LEGIT model image. Note that I will check the source of the stock you provide me with. In the past I've created images with illegitmate pngs and stock. Some are still in my gallery - I don't have the time (or patience) to sort them out and redo them. But I will no longer use illegitimate sources.

Am I overreacting?

Fri Nov 21, 2014, 10:26 PM

I joined a new RPG a couple of weeks ago, and they are pretty big on graphics there. On two separate games, I sell profiles and other types of graphic work, and am very successful in both places. Since I enjoy doing it, and it's a way to make game currency, I thought, "Why not try here too?"

Of course, it was my first day on the game when I posted my thread. Straight away, I got a comment about my art. "Your graphics need more work before you sell them."

Now, I am not against getting CnC. Many of my watchers have been watching me from the moment I created my deviant art account, and I'm sure you have noticed the progress I have made. I didn't only make progress by practice and tutorials. I had signed up on quite a few gfx forums where the point of it was to get CnC. That CnC also helped me improve in both tags and photomanipulations.

But this thread I had posted up was an ad. I did not specifically say, "I'd like CnC on my examples." This guy - who said my art needs more work - called his statement CnC, and was not happy that I had the nerve to tell him what he did was rude, and was not actually CnC.

Anyway, after a few posts back and forth (someone after that saying my work is shit), I decided this troll wasn't worth getting my hackles up over. So I quit responding. The only responses I gave were to people asking genuine questions or posing genuine concerns.

Today, one person said he was not too sure of my attitude towards the guy who made that statement, because he's apparently a "nice" and "helpful" guy. I restated in very clear words that I had no problem with CnC. What I had a problem with is him expressing distaste of work in my thread. If he felt there was a particular area I should work on, he should have - and could have - messaged me privately and said, "Hey, you're pretty okay at this, but you should work on ________ and _______." Maybe not tell me exactly what to do to fix it, but at least give me something constructive.

Then after my responses, the same guy who said my stuff needed work, said, "This is the forums, people post things on here, be it opinions or CnC. And how was I rude? Because I gave you a negative comment publicly? Well sorry to break it to you but again, like I said, it's the forums, comments (especially negative ones) are inevitable. I would've given you a proper CnC, but the fact that you were 0 days old when you made this thread, and already thought about selling your work pissed me off. And yeah... since you didn't ask for CnC I just gave you my opinion of your work. Let me ask you something, and be honest. Ever since you created this thread, how many buyers did you have?"

This just... royally pissed me off. And today, I am not in a good mood. So I decided it would be best not to respond because it's obvious he's trying to get a reaction out of me. What do you all think? Am I overreacting or am I right to feel like I'm being attacked?

I'm terrible with introductions, so forgive me for my bad bio.

My name is Alexia and I'm 21 years old. I've been working with Photoshop since I was around 13-14. I'm not a professional by any means, I'm still learning about it. I actually taught myself using tutorials I found over the internet and by experimenting with each tool and filter. I've used PS7, CS2, CS3, CS4, CS5 and currently using CS6. I'm also familiar with ImageReady.

I have been a total Potterhead for as long as I can remember. I believe I began to read the series when I was 9. And even now I still love it. Pretty sure I always will.

I watch a ton of TV shows because I have no life (ha ha). I can't even remember the entire list, there's so many. But I love Pretty Little Liars, Ravenswood, Doctor Who, Torchwood, American Horror Story (particularly Coven), The Walking Dead, Once Upon A Time, Once Upon A Time In Wonderland, Charmed, Supernatural, Witches of East End, Sleepy Hollow, Bates Motel. That may be everything, but like I said, the list is so long I can't remember them all :giggle:

Current Residence: Georgia
