Its prolly an unpopular opinion, but adoptables are like a plague now. and I really dont like it. People Churning them out like Factories...and people throwing their money at a collection of ideas...to do what with them? Let them sit in a corner? to have someone else redraw them?
The fact that we are all different and can come up with our own unique ideas and concepts and stories is what makes our OCs and FCs special....If we keep just buying and buying....I just dont like the idea.
Closed species are one thing. Out of respect you aren't stealing the character. sure. but If you like it so much, why cant you use it as an inspiration for your own species that could fit into the same world? I can guarentee that you would love it more than something you threw 5-10 dollars at on a whim.
So NOW we have GOOD TALENTED artists that are closing down their commisions and focusing hardcore on churning out adoptables....
Maybe im just sentimental, but my creations and my old artworkds are special to me...I wouldnt BE who i am today without drawing those pictures. They taught me things. They shaped me.
And maybe thats why when i see people lock their old artwork or Leave their account 2, 3, 4 times with a NEW name only to draw the SAME characters and the same art style over and over again?
Im just like...what are you doing?
And to the people buying them...what are you doing? are you Reaallly gonna draw that cat-girl character? Are you REALLY gonna expand their backstory and give them the love they deserve? Or are you just collecting characters like pokemon, hoping that with a good character under your belt you are gonna become better at what you do somehow...
Be responsible with your creations. And buyers, try making something.
If you make an Original character (not a fan character), pur your heart and soul into its background story...Link me it. Tell me their story. And Ill sketch it.
