Short about Artist confession

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 17, 2012, 11:38 AM


Hiii! ;AA;

Iīm sure some of you have seen the post on AC about me ;;;
Iīm glad it didnīt become a fuss though haha.

In my response I canīt really say much but.. Why didnīt you [the poster/OP] just note me about this if it bugged you? XD;
I donīt bite I promise!

The confession itself didnīt hurt me as I donīt see the problem with referencing a picture when you give both link and credits? ;;'
I always wanted a pink haired OC back then and when I saw his uniforms I just flipped XD They were sooo pretty ;;;

I saw some people protecting me and I thank you for that ;;;;
I spent alot of time on that picture just to get the anatomy somewhat DECENT even though Iīm horrible with anatomy haha QAQ'

The thing that hurt the most was the random comments about me only befriending popular people and that I left my old friends? a@
I still talk and text many of my oldest friends that I have had for around the day I joined Deviantart. So I donīt know where people got this from? ewe'

And that I canīt take critique? XD; I can take critique! I admit Iīm extremely sensitive about my work but I never get mad at a person who critiques me ;;;
An outsider can always point out stuff to make your art more appealing and I appreciate that!

And last thing that I use my diseases to get popular? That really truly hurt me the most.
I barely talk about what I do everyday when I visit hospitals and what happens with my body.
Deviantart has always been giving me happiness but.. sometimes the things from real life affects my mood really badly and if Iīm suddenly gone just like that I would like to inform my watchers that
As Iīm responsible for commissions and such as well I think they have the right to know if there are going to be delays ;;

And I have never noticed I got more watchers when I mentioned a disease or what not? XD;
Itīs only for people that already watch me and support me, which Iīm truly grateful that they do ;;

And I know Iīm not the worldīs perfect child or anything, but I do my best to treat others the way I want to be treated,
being called fake for trying to make the world and my surroundings a better place and just trying to be happy.. just.. why would people write stuff like this? ;A;
Shall I be mean, am I accepted by your guys then?

All I do is being myself, and Iīm sorry Iīm not pleasing to you QAQ
But I have learned the hard way that you canīt please every human alive unfortunately..

Oh my I write so much, anyways, I got really hurt by this and got very sad but I will just swallow it an move on YUSH!
I want to thank the people who still stick with me!

This was very brave of you to write, and I admire that you're able to "swallow it and move on." :D Ganbatte!

It makes me sad to hear that ; A ;
Don't worry, you are a sweet an talented artist.
I have never seen anyone as kind as you! :iconfrufflesplz:
Most people on AC are just jealous, and that was rude to do that. : Y

That was very rude what the confession said :/ don't let that get you down, everyone makes art mainly for themselves not for random people's pleasure only, even though I think you know this already
YUI-YAN Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012  Student Digital Artist
0^0 it always makes me so mad to hear about people here giving you a hard time
your extremely talented and you are REAALLLY nice so i dont know why people would accuse you of doing those thing :IIIII
it just makes me so mad :iconsobbplz:
yooci Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh ;A;
I'm really sorry for you! You don't have to become sad!
Some people always search for way to hurt, but what's important is there are more people that always search ways to help.
Sometimes good grabs bad, but I hope that you will focus the people that support you. ^u^

I saw the confession yesterday, and I didn't understand what the fuss was about either, to be honest :|
I always thought it was okay to look up to your role models, and draw similar pictures as them, I've done it plenty of times in the past, (none of the pictures are on dA though).

But you handled this really well, you didn't try to hide away and accuse the OP of lying, you were really open and honest about it, it was wrong of those posters on AC to type those false, cruel things about you :iconsweethugplz:

Don't take any of it to heart though Yamio, I look at AC everyday, because I have no life OTL and I only see it as a place for people to gossip about artists, and pick out their flaws, and bash them for not being "perfect".
I agree, you can't please everybody, but I haven't seen you do any of the things you stated above, since I found your page, you've been nothing but nice and friendly ..... and I see so many other deviants look up to you. :)

Stay strong Yamio, and don't let them get to you, the OP was in the wrong to begin with for not going directly to you about the problem.

I hope you feel better soon, and just know that you have many people who still love you for who you are :aww:

I'm so sorry to hear that! As long as you believe yourself, then you don't have to believe those mean things!
PuriPop Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012
Yami! I can't believe I even read that!
That's absolutely terrible.
Just going down and reading each one that hurt you from less to the most just broke my heart!
I cannot believe some people would really go through things like saying
your sickness is your popularity. I can't comprehend the honest cruelty of that :/
It's NOT your fault your sick and you do tell your watchers so they're updated
on commissions. That's actually REALLY NICE because people do like to the know the status of
their commissions! (I think that made me the most upset that people would
use that against you.)

AAAAAAAAH okay and your drawing YOU LINKED THEM so obviously people would know?
It's not like you hid the picture and then was like "AMG STAHP DIS IS ALL MINE I NEVA SAW THAT
PICTURE EVER! " :iconragerageplz:
You were really honest about it! It's not even fair to be mean about that because you
took a lot of time and dedication into that picture! So it's showing all your talents!
I'm glad you didn't delete it because you worked hard on that picture and every single one
you draw so because of trolls you should keep that up and always stay proud.
It's just a reference amg I don't understand why people had to just go into
everything about how you don't talk to old friends. WHAT IS THE POINT OF
This wasn't fair to you at all!

You are such a kind person and beautiful! I believe you will get better
You are perfect for being you everyday! Stay strong Yamis, keep being happy, and get better soon!!

I'm sorry I typed a lot.... >A< Forgive me!

I've been beginning to hate that confession blog. There's so much hate on it and when someone makes a confession about the hate, they get hated on for that. Is there no logic in this world anymore? -__- I's fine to have an opinion and everything..but come on..showing it to thousands of people is proven immature. I'm so sorry you had a confession like that. Make me want to run my own confession blog that is drama free.
carcarchu Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
W-what ;A; how could someone make a mean ac about yamio?? you are seriously one of the cutest and sweetest person on DA ;;u;; waah
hiriye Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012
How can somebody make a negative confession about you? In your journals you always sound like such a kind person! Like I read all of them in a Nyanners voice in my head.. :iconhontoplz: Which probably sounds creepy.
I've only been on confessions twice when it was newer, and the only negative stuff was about hana. But I hear it's like 90% negative now. It certainly seems so if there's ones about you. That's so sad. ): :iconuu-plz:
cglucid Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
it's ok. Who cares what people say. You know what they say "haters gonna hate" (:giggle:). And your definetely one to attract jealousy.
Lilyshade13 Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012
Aw, it's okay, dear... :hug:
People can be so rude sometimes... They need to learn to be more polite! You are handling this very well, though!
And your art is beautiful~ ^_^
Zitatchi Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012  Student General Artist
As soon as I saw your art in that confession I was a bit angry because even though I don't know you super well I still know you're a really sweet person who doesn't deserve any of their hate, so I'm glad that most people didn't make a huge deal out of it and pester you! ^_^; They really should've gotten their facts straight before getting their undies in a knot though since you credited the other artist and were only drawing your character that way for that one picture. ^_^; The other mean comments about you in the disqus were really uncalled for too! ^.^;
EllieBracha Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
did that guy actually post those lies about you?? ugh, especially about your diseases, i just heard about that last night on your stream! i've been watching your for at least a few months now, does that guy really think that thats the reason why we love your art??? i mean SERIOUSLY.
i'm really sorry yami, i now your fans believe your words more than just some random guy with a blog. i hope youre alright, let me know if you ever need a friend to talk to <3
bunnychii Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Yeah I seen it on my feed and I was like wtf :U rood peoplee
But yeah its a shame it gave such a bad light to you.
I confessed something on that blog once but mostly about my styles o3o ended up getting such bad feedback on my drawings ehe

xXAERXx Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Omg yeah, I saw that confession :iconyuicraiplz:
Sure the outfit looked the same, and the hairstyle, but you already established the color palette and everything before you drew that picture ;n;<33 hnnn
I've actually been hated on too, not on that site but my username was insulted through facebook, some places on dA, and something that I sold was being distributed for free against my wishes :iconuu-plz:
But what hurt most were the lies they told just to make me look like a horrible person :c I'm extremely sensitive as well qnq I literally had to hold in tears that day :,c
And about the whole disease thing, it's not like you randomly shout in your journals "WOE IS ME BOOOHOOOOO" You don't even go in too much detail, just enough so nobody will be too worried about you :iconcraiplz: And the only people that get those journals are your watchers themselves, unless you have a stalker or somebody who really likes looking through the journal portal >:[
People can be SO heartless sometimes, it's so hard to find a genuinely nice person these days :iconcryinplz: but don't listen to what they say, even if it's so hard. The only people you need are the people who love you for who you are :iconyuiswayplz:
I swear the people who bully people either need serious help or have absolutely NO idea what it feels like to be a victim... If they read this, it really, really hurts. And don't say it's only words, you can't judge emotional values with ANYBODY. ;( In all honesty, words can scar for life. -n-

....I'm sorry to hear that those people wrote those mean comments to you, that was not nice of them :iconcraiplz:
You're good at anatomy and I don't know why they said that you're using your diseases to get popular....that's also harsh of them.
People like to vent, but...they shouldn't have said that to you Yami... and I still wish you luck :iconsweethugplz: And don't listen to those people who say things like that.
Kylaesthetics Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012
Oh my god.
This is why I don't bother with that stupid website anymore.
It's full of selfish children with nothing but hate and a weak feeling of success to see everything blow up around them.

You're a beautiful person, and your art means nothing compared to that. It's something that makes you happy, and gets you through the day.
But in the end, what matters most is yourself.
Never forget that you will never owe anything to the rude people who demand so much of you.
You don't need to please anyone.

Keep yourself happy, and talk about what you wish, and draw what makes you happy.
Badluckcrow Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012
Geez, some people really are jerks aren't they? But don't you take any of their guff! You know yourself better than they do. The internet does attract a few of mean customers but those are in the vast minority. You know that there's plenty of us who truly respect you (me included of course) and will support you all the way. I'm sorry that I haven't commented on all your art that you submit but I do always take a look at it and you're always improving and you always make good stuff!

Nuts to those people who are going to be mean hearted to ya! You're awesome! Always were, always will be!

Thankies so much for you kind words Baddie QAQ ~♥
It makes me happier, and you don´t need to, just knowing you support me means a lot!
Thank you very much, I will do my best to not disappoint you! *A*
Bubble-Crown Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, tbh, i can see there point... It does look very alike to the point where it might annoy people. And i think if maybe you were a less well known artist you would be getting ALOT more hate (which some people may see as unfair), so you cant really complain ;; Ive seen so many starting out artist been completely trampled on for copying little aspects of other characters, which is so unfair on them because, maybe they didnt know its veiwed as wrong, seeming as alot of them were like 10-11 anyway (maybe to young for the site...)

But as long as you got the Okay from the original artist, its fine in the end i guess, people need to stop making a mountain out of a mole hill~

And with the popularity rubbish, tbh, if people dont make the effort to stay your friend/ keep talking to you, thats there fault. Its not just your fault there. <333
Yamio Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
But it´s supposed to look alike.. XD; I was drawing similar clothes from that picture ;;; I even mentioned it in the description ;;;
Just because I have alot of watchers doesn´t mean I have this veil of protection around my feelings QAQ It will still hurt, I´m just a human like everyone else. I think that is wrong too of course and they don´t deserve hate ;W;

Yes it was ;;;

Bwaah yuuuh QAQ It´s hard to keep in touch with everyone if they don´t also put any effort TvT~♥
Thank you <33333
Bubble-Crown Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ahh, sorry, I wasnt being clear, I meant the character it's self looks quite alike with the exception of the eyes ;;; ( obviously the uniform looks like the original picture, i like the thrills onnthe skirt btw) sorry about that~ and no worries, being curious I ( and probably everyone else) looked up what happened and it's quite clear that you put that in the description, and tbh once I worked out what was going on, I stopped reading . c:
It's just the little things like how the fringe is styled like the girl in the picture and so on that people will pick on though, and I can see why. Though I think if they have a problem or question they need to ask you, not post it for the world. At first I was a bit, that's really similar... But to be honest, it's non of my business, for all I know you may have made that character long before seeing that picture.

As for the people uploading and saying nasty thingsThey are just looking for attention, and for some reason people seem to think if they make someone else hated they will be loved.

Anyway, you've probably had tons of giant comments today either loving or hating you ( I wanted to be mutual! <333) so I'm going to leave it at that, I'm sure someone else has said anything else I might think of saying~
baibai and enjoy the rest of your day :iconrubcheeksplz:
Yamio Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Aww yes the bangs are similar QAQ
I thought it looked so pro *in the original picture* So I made bangs alike for that picture, but Minon looks different in all my other sketches haha QAQ
I understand why people would pick on it "OMG SHE STOLE THE GIRL IN THIS PICTURE AND NOW SAYS ITīS HER OC"
I can understand that argument, but I only drew her like that for just that picture, and I even credited, I wasnīt going to have her like that after that picture haha QAQ' But perhaps it wasnīt obvious to everyone ;;;

Awww yes QAQ Hnnnn thank you sweetie <3333333

Starry-Shizen Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012
No, no the character itself D; People are saying the hairstyle and hair color are too similar. Then again some say it's just really generic to the point that it can look like any other it doesn't really matter. ; 3;"
Yamio Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Awww yes they are alike ;AAA;
I wanted a simple pink haired OC with bows *crais*
But itīs so generic like you said QAQ haha, therefore I donīt use her much ;;; <33333
If I would just put her hair down or made her hair blue nobody would have cares so much I think haha QAQ'
Starry-Shizen Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012
Oh I see :'O Well maybe you can change her hair style from time to time :'D I think that would change it....maybe? OTL" I don't really know xD;

Lol xD; Yeah~
Yamio Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Well I already changed it on the second picture of her haha QAQ Itīs in my gallery ;;;

Look artist-confessions is just a load of people who can't even look for any proof before even making a confession. That person clearly didn't see the image response on Pixiv. Just don't worry about it u A u"
Not everyone is out there to like you; there ARE going to be idiots who think they know everything about an artist when they don't. Or they don't understand the art world at all. Their logic sucks....

But anyways. I'm glad you're not one of those people who get really mad and start cursing all over the place with their journal xD;

I don't know anything about a disease o..o I just watched you because of your art and since you seem like a sweet person.
Though I think people creating drama is to be expected since with talent people grow jealous of things they don't have.

But I think you're amazing and nothing changes that <3

xineli Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012
Ugh I saw that too. The person didn't gather any facts about the drawing being okay from the creator of that other drawing. Not to mention it was a re-post e n e. The person must be a person who just hates you, otherwise they wouldn't have made a re-post.
I know you take critique and take it well; an example was on the livestream yesterday too.
About your sickness, I don't mind it at all. You only mention it when you are trying to let your commissioners know why their commission is going to be delayed. At least it's better than having to wonder why a person would be taking so long and make the commissioners think they've been scammed.
Don't worry, A-C is just a place for people to somehow hate on other people.

And you don't just talk to your friends, you talk with everyone and even drop by their page to leave a comment.
Seriously, all of this is just coming from a personal hate that doesn't have to do with anything they're saying e A e''
Ridaki Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Aww, Yami-chan, don't let them get to you!
They're just too scared to actually note the artist in person, or they're just too mean to ;n;

They're just jealous of you, saying all those nasty things ; o ;
