Just my thoughts... I don't think I need to say more... they are people too.

P.D. SOME artists ARE stuck up bitches, but not all of them.

P.D 2. I've grown thick skin since then, this doesn't exactly get to me anymore, but I wanted t share anyways.

This really spoke out to have no idea....or you do. 

But this means a lot!!

OMG! This is so true in so many ways.

I'm not popular myself, but two days back I went to the Today section and gave newbies welcome comments.

Well, this certainly makes me think a lot. Thanks for this, even though it wasn't meant for me directly.

Yes, it seems popular artists pay no attention to the beginners, like me. But so what? I don't know about you, but I ain't here to become popular. Although, it is nice sometimes when a few people pay attention to you.(Lol, you got a tablet at 15? I wish I could get one...)

Only problem is, I don't totally agree with the "Free Requests" part. I mean, if such a popular artist is open to free requests by all of her fans, then her life would be totally swarmed by making those requests, and she wouldn't have time to even deal with other aspects of her life.

Many artists out there, like me, believe that an artist should never work for free. We don't like the "starving artist" treatment, and thus, the solution is instead to make people "commission you": pay you to do an artwork for them. And, like those artists, I only accept free requests from the closest of friends and acquaintances :D

Well,  I don't care about my views that much, but I do have a few fans who truly adore my artwork, and they make me feel great. In fact, I like it better, than being flooded with thousands of half-hearted attention-whoring comments and fake views.

I never said they should? The whole point of the strip is to speak up for this people and call shitty people out on their bullshit. Examples being provided in the last few lines.

I am completely against the idea that artists should work for free... I mean I AM a freelance artist after all.

THAT's always the way it should be.

Then again, I like how your strip brings forth the message. Popularity isn't all glitz and glamour: you actually have to carry a lot more weight on your shoulders.

However, this is only dA. There are worse sites you could possibly upload your art. Personally, dA is very light-hearted and safe enough from the malignant denizens of the internet.  Judgmental people will always be a part of the Internet, but I've become numb towards them ever since, and nowadays I have greater freedom in drawing anything I want, not like when I started out where I only drew to gain Views, which, of course now, embarrasses me a little.

I would share this strip to a few big-name artists I've met in person, if you don't mind. They might relate this one to their own experiences.
