Bad relationship by alphabethater Bad relationship by alphabethater
uuuuu, my second DD. why?
anyway.. thank you all for liking my artwork, watch me, I planning to create more interesting stuff before I die.

this idea came from Duncan Trussell joke (Joe Rogan Experience podcast): being in a bad relationship is like having an octopus stuck to your face that every once in awhile whispers to you: do you still love me?

sadly, i'm just like that octopus.
this is a really cute illustration though. i love the expression of the octopus, and i like how one tentacle goes through the o in "do," as if it's going to float away.

It's a cartoon. This is a very rude comment. If you can't accept the fact that cartoons are not always anatomically correct, get off the internet.

>Rude comment
Dude, if THAT is rude to you, you have no idea what a rude is.
Oh wait, this is a DD and anything other than asslickery on it is considered rude.

Dear sir, you are the one that should quit internet for taking it so seriously.

I am perfectly aware of what rude is. It doesn't matter what LEVEL of rude it was, it was still rude. Telling someone that their picture is awful and you would never fav it without leaving any solid critique is hurtful and unnecessary. The fact that you intentionally took the time to leave an unnecessary hurtful, and unhelpful comment brings a light to your character that you should not want.

I don't believe that "anything other than asslickery" is allowed or considered rude on a DD. Getting a DD is a gerat way to get solid, in-depth critique. You did not leave one of those. You were just plain rude.

I am not in fact going to "quit the internet." You should re-evaluate the comments that you leave.
Unless you are in fact attempting to be intentionally rude. Which I guess I will be able to gauge by the reply you leave me. If you leave one at all.

Things will not escalate if you don't reply. Word to the wise.

Maybe if the artist asked why I think that way? I would clearly state all the flaws. Too bad DD artists have too much of inflated ego to answer.
I'm free to state what I think. If the artwork I'm commenting is subjectively horrible, I will say so.

>I don't believe that "anything other than asslickery" is allowed or considered rude on a DD. Getting a DD is a gerat way to get solid, in-depth critique. You did not leave one of those. You were just plain rude.

Too bad there is NEVER a proper critique on DDs. Every last comment is ''OMGZ IT'S AWSUM!1!1!1'' kind of deal.
You are obsessed with me being rude. What are you, autistic? This is internet, internet offers some kind of anonimity and anonimity allows pure honesty.
Getting upset because someone is honestly rude on the internet is showing that you take internet too seriously.

>I am not in fact going to "quit the internet." You should re-evaluate the comments that you leave.

First, I always leave a reply.
Second, I'm not ''intentionaly'' rude. I'm that way all the time. Because tasting the butthurt of white knights such as yourself is invigorating.
Finally, my replies are always 100% honest, without too much bullshit. If I think something is shit I will state so, fucking deal.

Just because there's never proper critiques doesn't give you the excuse to be offensive. I'm not "upset" I'm trying to bring light to why comments like yours are unnecessary.

And DD artists do not always have inflated egos. 9/10 times they don't even expect the DD. The reason they don't reply is because getting a DD literally floods their inbox with hundreds of comments. It's more likely they didn't reply to you because yours was rude, and they were spending more time replying to people who were considerate. Or to no one at all - which appears to be the case.

Leaving a nasty comment for the sake of being nasty and expecting the artist to ask you to clarify does not give you grounds to leave the nasty comment in the first place. That's just looking for trouble. Maybe the artist had too much self-pride to even give attention to the person leaving hateful comments for no reason other than to leave hateful comments. I know that if I got this comment on a piece of art that I did and enjoyed doing, I wouldn't reply.

Remember that thing that everyone says "if you don't like, don't look?" That applies here. It would have taken less time to click away from the page than to write a comment. All of which means you intentionally stayed to write a short, hurtful comment on purpose, hoping for a response so you could sit there and feel good about yourself because you made people upset. You can't even say you felt like staying and critiquing a bad piece of art, because you didn't critique it. You just said it was bad without giving any more of an explanation other than an incredibly ambiguous "bad anatomy" which could mean anything from the way their eyes are drawn to their entire bodily proportions.

I'm all for internet anonymity. And in case you haven't noticed, I'm being 100% honest too. But honesty does not equal obscenity.
And saying that you are not "intentionally rude, you're just that way all the time" is in fact being intentionally rude. Intentionally. All the time.

Yes you are, that's the sole reason you are actually replying

>9/10 times they don't even expect the DD
9/10 narcs don't even expect drugs will change their life. DDs are like heroin shots, make you happy for some time and make you crave for more.

>I know that if I got this comment on a piece of art that I did and enjoyed doing, I wouldn't reply.
I know, I will pretend it doesn't exist. Yeah, now lick my ass more.
That's how you sound. How manly.

>if you don't like, don't look
Not only that's the rule of cowards it's also severely cripling ones freedom of speech.
Not to mention you are just hipocritical here because you didn't have to reply on my post because you obviously don't like it.

>hoping for a response so you could sit there and feel good about yourself because you made people upset
I do this because of pure pack mentality DDs have. And boy, I love seeing how packs get buttmad.

>It would have taken less time to click away from the page than to write a comment
My comment took 5 words and 2 numbers, I wrote it under 7 seconds. You wrote me few walls of text preaching me what bad person I am. It would take less time for you to stop whiteknighting.

>But honesty does not equal obscenity.
That's like saying freedom of the speech doesn't include different and ''offensive'' opinions.

>And saying that you are not "intentionally rude, you're just that way all the time" is in fact being intentionally rude. Intentionally. All the time.
This is supposed to make me feel bad or what? You just repeated what you said earlier.

Also, you made few mistakes from the very start
>Actually replying to a person that could be a troll.
>Whiteknighting an artist you have absolutely nothing to do with except your slight hope of showing him/her what ''good person'' you are and xpecting asspats.
>Using ad hominems
