I didn't notice till I switched from my da messages onto my Tumblr where I saw your cute avatar in the car seat. I'm enanimated, I sent you a little greeting when I joined the fandom c:

Do you mind if I ask you something strange? You have such amazing drawings, does it never bother you that you don't get a whole bunch of notes and things?

that's some good timing if i do say so myself~~



ahh thank u so much!! it does sometimes, like if it's not a crappy doodle it can be a bit frusterating to see it not get much attention. but i usually try and reblog it so it gets more visibility
i do find sometimes tho my drawings with like 5 notes will spike and end up with 30 like two days later, so it's a pretty big patience game
i think the part i find the most frusterating is when i check a 15 note post and nobody is reblogging it (like it's understandable if maybe it's a bit of an nsfw drawing and people don't want to reblog that, but like with a perfectly safe and sfw drawing it can be annoying)

so idk long story short: ye it can be pretty bothersome ;;

I have the same frustrations, but I've also been in a completely different pond, so to speak.

I once happened by accidental timing to become a popular Daft Punk art blog (the most popular on Tumblr at the time, I found out from peers sharing their follower counts) with around 900 followers, so my Daft Punk art would always get around 100-300 notes a pop if not more-- but I'd noticed after a while that my other art would get next to nothing at all (barely ten notes if I was lucky). It was really saddening to think that only my Daft Punk art was worth anything, so when I eventually dropped to 600 followers, I gave it all up to remove myself from that frame of mind. (So now I'm sort of terrified that by joining a fandom like Slugterra I'll just wall myself off again-- but you seem to balance your Ocs with your fandoms so well ;c;)

I guess the moral of that story of that is fame and validation isn't all its cracked up to be, and how dangerous subscribing to a fandom (even by accident) is.
So do you have any tips on how to balance these sorts of things (fandoms and original content)?

that's always the worst, having like 500+ note fanwork then all ur other stuff is like 12 or below ;; (happened with me in the dmmd and danny phantom fandoms, might be happening with otgw too)

tru tru

it took me a bit to figure out how to do it, but i think what helped the most was that i started treating my ocs a lot more seriously if that makes sense?? idk
the ones i draw for the most are ones i'm currently writing big stories for, webcomics i plan to start up once i get some practice in and get a decent computer (i don't draw a lot for the ones that i'm not planning to do anything for at the moment)
i sort of managed to train myself into 'alternating' (there's rly no pattern, just like, for every fanwork i make, make a few oc pieces) it's especially important when i really get into another show bc i'll usually pump out fanart like there's no tomorrow, but now i try and do some original art in between

the best advice i can give is just, make up stories for u ocs whenever u can whether u try to do something with them or not. like i'm constantly coming up with little ideas for my characters and that helps me stay focused on them while at the same time i'll be all over a show or something (sometimes if i see something in a show that i find really interesting, i might relate it to some characters)

idk if any of this makes sense ahh ;;

No, that makes total sense. I've always had an active imagination but the kinds of things I would /do/ something with would take a lot more research into politics (and you cant go through political theories and practices without history lessons these days, and I really don't like history.) I have started writing, at least, even if it is fandom related. Gotta start somewhere haha/// I will try that rotation thing you do tho .o.

Thank you for reading my ramblings ;v; you're a very helpful and kind person.
