Red Lion Posted June 22, 2016 Share Posted June 22, 2016 Ain't it always the way? You hop onto your DA/FB whatever you post art on and you get all excited to see a request in you private messages. Then you find out that they want something really weirdly specific and going to their account to see what kinda person you're dealing with yields picture after picture of shitty ms paint Disney characters in pajamas getting their feet tickled by tentacles, or the characters of the PBS show "Arthur" gaining weight with their dads. And I mean it's NOTHING but that. That perfect combo of bad ms paint art, weird possibly-sexual-possibly-not theme and beloved children's characters. As much as I know these people are probably harmless there's something really off putting about how obsessive they are that makes me not want to ever give them any art and block them from sending me messages in the future. I don't care if it's mean, that kind of obsessiveness is unsavory dammit! It's not limited to the furry fandom either, I get more of these requests FA than I do on it surprisingly enough. It's not like I won't draw outside of my comfort zone, but this is waaaaay beyond what I'm comfortable with. I wouldn't even say it's exclusive to art, I knew a guy who was really into sonic the hedgehog, to the point that there was sonic the hedgehog paraphernalia wall to wall in his room. I had to stop hanging around him because he couldn't put Sonic down for ten minutes, even to watch a movie. He was like a junkie who needed that fix. Anyone else wanna weigh in on this? You guys ever run into those creepily obsessed types and wanna run for the hills? 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
