I got completely blocked by someone whose artwork I commented on. The comment was nothing more than "some more shading on the face and hair would be nice, and a bit more shape to the foot would help too, since it took me a while to figure out that she was supposed to be on her toes." I got a message back from that person telling them that they didn't want any critique and that if I couldn't say anything nice, that I shouldn't say anything at all. I honestly don't feel that I was out of line with my comment, since on the absolute worst level, it would be constructive criticism. Honestly, it was kind of baffling to me. . . and for several reasons.
1. I've never said something cruel about someone's artwork, and if someone said something similar to me, I would take it and try and improve upon my piece.
2. Completely ignoring someone's suggestions means that you think your artwork is perfect and cannot be improved upon. . . and that's never the case. xD
3. Making me unable to comment further on artwork and profile is quite unnecessary, given the harmless comment.
I'd really enjoyed all the people I met and spoke with on dA, but this really took me aback and I'm quite ashamed that there are immature morons who do this. And I guess someone could go out and say I'm immature for getting upset about this, but. . . it really bothered me. And I needed to share. :c
ALSO, there are creeps everywhere. I ran in to one fairly early on in my time on deviantart. This person wasn't looking for a relation. . . ship? though. xD I'm sorry you had to be bothered by that, it's a pain.
Wow, that's absolutely ridiculous! I actually have a personal 'policy' on trying to make EVERY comment that I write constructive. It's really hard sometimes to figure out how to give positive feedback and give them stuff to improve on, and I know I'd be incredibly insulted if I got blocked for it.
I agree with you that that was incredibly out of line. I mean, if you're not looking for feedback from people, fine. Disable the comments. But you can't say 'Ooh la la, I'd love to hear all you people gushing over my art, but I don't want to hear any way I could work to improve'. Obviously that's a bit of an exaggeration, but the point stands - if you want everyone to act like the sun shines out of your drawing's ass, then don't post it on deviantART.
My personal favorite would be Galceon, on account of I'm a huge fan of Ice-type Pokemon. I had both a Leafeon and a Glaceon on a team once, though, and they worked really well together. ^^'
Umbreon, unfortunately, is kind of lame. . . for a person who battles like I do, I guess. They look really awesome, but I'm more of an offensive person rather than a defensive person, which is typically the role they play in the games.
Haha, Glaceon's my third favourite, after Leafeon and Espeon. I'm pretty much the same as you, I battle a ton and I prefer Pokemon that hit fast and hard. Why focus on defense if you can OHKO everything instead, right?
Agh. I am SO HAPPY to have finally found someone who agrees with me on that! I mean, it looks really badass and I LOVE the shiny version, but in-game it's pretty useless unless you're into hardcore competitive battling strategy. I did have an Umbreon on my team for Pokemon Colosseum. It didn't see near as much action as my Espeon, but he was useful to have around every once and a while in the double battle format.
Most of the time, each Pokemon on my team has one defensive move (once I've found a good one to teach them or they reach a high enough level to learn it themselves). Something to boost their stats, or to keep them from getting stupid stat problems. It's helpful if I know a battle is going to be a longer one.
I miss Pokemon Colosseum! I used to play it with my friend Kaity allll the time! I don't remember most of the Pokemon I'd use, but we'd play it all day long. I never owned the game or system, though, so I didn't actually play through the game, just the battling with friends part.
For some reason, my boyfriend just clicked on a YouTube video called "Ash Catches Tepig." Ash threw the stupid Pokeball AT Tepig's head. xD Poor guy.
HEY, I heard there's a new Pokemon game out called Black/White 2. Would you happen to have played it? I'm going to be buying a 3DS sometime in the near future, and I've been wondering how it's different from the regular Black/White games. . . which. . . I never finished. xD
