Why I am so lazy? (a small rant)

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 12, 2014, 12:41 AM
Hello my deerlings. Sorry about this but I got a comment asking why I am sooooo lazy about updating the dear departed. I was going to answer this privately but my message got out of hands and... And I just need to get this off my chest...

Why I am so lazy? Weelll... Maybe because I am an adult who has a daily job as a graphic artists which means that every single work day I spend over 7 hours in front of a computer doing graphics. And when I finally get home and I have done some food, took care of my pets, had some exercise, maybe take a shover and or clean up my house, I have maybe about 4-5 hours for myself. MAYBE, just maybe I am tired after a full day of drawing and I don't feel like spending those few hours doing the same exact thing I do at work. (and making RD comics takes about 7-10 hours).

And oh yes! What about weekends?! I could easily spent all THAT time to draw comics! Well guess what. I am a human being. I have friends. I have a family. Sometimes I have plans with them. And I also have other hobbies. I love video games but I haven't had time to play them as much as I used to. I have many video games left unfinished because I feel bad playing them because I could use the time drawing the comic! I'd also love to start practicing crocheting but I haven't because I sit every single evening in front of my computer, thinking that I MUST DRAW THE COMIC EVEN IF I DON'T FEEL LIKE IT!............ And I never get anywhere....    

*sigh* I just... I'm really sorry. I know most of you are really patient with me (and like what ever the heck I post, RD related or not) and you have no idea how much I appreciate that. You are the people I want to make the comic for and the reason why I still draw it. But just... Please understand pokebank is coming. Making DD, has just been really emotionally exhausting. Sometimes I just feel that some people take the RD series more seriously than I do and I am literally afraid to update it because I don't know if it's up to your expectations.

I miss the days when I could draw the stupidest shit and no one took it too seriously and didn't bother to think whether it was canon with the series or not.

Or maybe I am just paranoid and over thinking. I don't know... Anyway, I'm really sorry about this small rant because this doesn't even concern majority of you. I didn't want to start my day like this but... *sigh*  This has been bottling inside me some time...

That's true. Every single person must have activities and hobbies than staying in the computer drawing for Deviantart. Thanks for saying the truth Tamarin.

... Seriously?

I mean, I kinda get their point for wanting it to come sooner but... Seriously? Artists are not just artists, artists are persons too :iconfacepalmplz:.

Well, at least now they will now have it clear you've got an actual job that requires you to... well, draw stuff (Then again, cant blame him/her: most people at DA are teenagers with little-to-no responsibilities... Not that I have many -.-).

Wow, does the comic really puts that much of a burden on you? Man, what can I say? Price of fame (Fame you didn't ask for but in the end fame after all)?

Hey! It was the stupid stuff that really brought that sparkle! Bring it back and stop worrying about the obsessive fanboys/fangirls that at least are not on your Tumblr :XD:.

Lol it's like you've eaten a giant plate of mashed  potatoes and then you're tired and exhausted and KFC just sends you a plate of whole potatoes xD

:hug: Don't let those people bring you down you should be allowed to have a life outside of making art for deviantart. I love your artwork but I definitely understand that you have other things that you need to do.

Hey at least you're not actually lazy lol to me, as much as I'd love to see pages being uploaded more frequently, I honestly don't care how long I have to wait. Everything takes time, and making a comic while having a busy life is just one of those things. I say do what you want. I honestly never give a crap what people think about my stuff (on here and tumblr). If I want to post something, well, I'm just gonna post it. So just do what you want, when you want. Anyone who truly cares will never rush you. :b

Sounds like that yahoo has his head up his rear. Pay him no mind. You are a fantastic artist and you are doing these comics in your free time. Don't worry and do them at your own pace. Otherwise, they're not enjoyable anymore. Have a fantastic day!

Hey! Don't worry about what everybody says! This is a labor of love for you, and if you need time to take a breather then everyone should understand that you have a life beyond this. I mean, off course I can't wait until the next one comes out, but I want you to be able to enjoy it and not feel obligated to do it. Do what you feel like and don't let other people get you down. Not everybody understands all the work involved in getting things done, so don't let them body you at all! I'll still be here whenever you get it done!
