IT MAKES ME SO HAPPY
especially since I'm not really a painter and scenery is mostly painted...

OKAY people seem to have a problem understanding these things.
This site is absolutely littered with accusations of art theft going around and while some of them are valid there are tons more that aren't. It seems more prevalent in fan art which makes NO SENSE to me because it wasn't ever yours to begin with, it belongs to Disney or Dreamworks or whatever.
Is the use of another person's work in a manner that claims it as your own or earns you some kind of profit (be it a money profit or attention/watchers). This is the stuff to get seriously upset about; somebody posting a picture you drew and saying that they drew it. It's never unintentional, they know they didn't draw it, and though they don't always directly mean you harm they do know that they have taken your work.

Hi, I'm Mad and I'm an annoying little high school nerd. I originally was called Whitetip when I got my account, so I respond to that as well as any of the other names listed above. The name came from a velociraptor in a movie I was obsessed with as a little kid that changed my life and who I would eventually become. Who knew dinosaurs were so important? Heh heh.
I'm a tad bit crazy and prone to "Spock moments" of cold hard logic, but I'm honestly a pretty sympathetic person and highly sensitive to the emotions of others.
I tend to swear a lot, especially when I'm tired or angry or bored (which is all the time), so my apologies in advance.
POLICY ON FAVS
Please don't fav my work unless:
-It's good relative to my skill level not yours or anyone else's
-It speaks to you spiritually/emotionally/gives you a case of 'the feels' that really cries out to you
-I made it for you
-It is otherwise meaningful to you.
I'm not here to become popular, I'm here to learn and improve. You telling me that you like the ten-minute sketch or shitty background THAT I SAY IS SHITTY only tells me you aren't reading the description or respecting my efforts to better myself. IF I CALL IT SHIT, THEN IT IS SHIT, AND YOU SHOULD NOT FAVE IT. PLEASE DON'T.
Thank you for being respectful of me, and do not take offense. I'm asking for you to not tell me that nothing I do is better than anything else I do, because that's a big fat lie and the work I spent four hours SLAVING OVER is FAR superior to some piece of crap lying around in scraps that took 20 minutes.
Also favs really clog my inbox.
You like favs? You can have 'em just don't give 'em, and don't give me hell for not wanting them. It's my opinion and personal value, and arguing is a bloody waste of effort. I don't give a flying f*** anyway.
Forgive me for being so standoffish but people just do not seem to hear me when I say this or they take it as an insult and yell at me. I appreciate that you like my work, but I want you to understand that I'm really here only to improve, not for fans, though I appreciate those C:
I'm no serious gamer, but I'm fully capable of playing the following games and playing them well:
-Pokemon (any of the traditional trainer ones and Mystery dungeon: those weird sidegames like Pokemon ranch don't count)
-Legend of Zelda (wii only) (Twilight Princess I'm almost done with and already finished Skyward sword)
-Animal Crossing (Wild World and New Leaf)
These TV shows/series/franchises/whatever you'd call them I really really like (I do not consider myself "a part of the fandom". I work independently and am bored by passing memes. I also do not develop crushes on characters, nor do I "ship" pairings.)
-Pokemon (no duh, it's listed above)
-Star Wars (but not Star Trek)
-Tron (not as much as others though)
-Transformers (movies [though I loathe Michael Bay] and the recent TV show, Prime)
I don't plan to pursue a career in art but I'll be damned if I ever give it up. I feel cleansed and at peace when I draw; it drains all the black, angst-y emotions out of me and lets me fill the void with whatever feelings I please instead. I have the same thing with writing.
I'm mainly inspired by seeing other people be inspired, which is one of the reasons I frequent this site. I love having other minds around to bounce ideas off of.
