Hey fellow followers!
As many of you know, there isn't anything quite like being happy. I just had my first anniversary with my wife, Obtained a job as a Full time Mac technician, acquired a brand new car (mostly to get out of debt from the old car...) and have realized I am quite happy with my life. I consider myself to be very blessed in everything that I do.
At the same time, I look at people that I looked up to, and once considered someone I wanted to be, and I feel...
There is an artist on Deviant Art by the name, Sakamichan. I loved her art. I even had my wallpaper be one of her paintings, And I respected her. Today she is still regarded by many to be one of the best Artists on DA, and is certainly successful as her Patreon page generates roughly $30,000 every 2 weeks. She even offers her work as PSD files to those who subscribe.
So where is my fault with her?
With most of the content she makes these days, you can pay extra for a NSFW version of the same content. You could argue that you don't have to pay for it. You could argue that she needs the money to make a living, But who 'needs' $30,000 every 2 weeks? As far as I am concerned She's sold herself for money, and the worst part of it is, She's hurting people by making addictive content. How can I respect that?
She's the main example but there are SO SO many more artists I once respected that now do the same thing, and I can't stay passive anymore. For all those within my reach I beg you NOT to make content that is provocative. The world has too much already, and your contribution only makes me angrier. I plan to raise a family one day, and there is already so much that I fear having to raise and guide Children in this hell of a world.
I promise each of you that I will not make provocative content that is even mildly suggestive, and I humbly request that you do the same. I can tell you that happiness can be found in bringing others joy, and that only pain and suffering can be found by bringing others sin. Consider the others around you and Live happy.
