Be nice to me, and I will be nice to you.
Talk to me, ask questions, and don't be shy.
Include me in ideas you have. Ask me for a suggestion if you are having a hard time deciding.
I want to help!
I reward and cherish people in my life that make me smile. This includes people online too.
I love to do art trades, random favors and gifts, if people ask nicely and seem sincere.
I try to comment on every journal, poll and deviation of the people I watch. Even if I can't think of something to say. Because I feel like they would be happy if I did comment.
I watch some people who's art I'm not even into. I'm just interested because the artist seems nice and is the kind of person I would like to get to know.
I commission people who need money, even if I don't like their art much, because I want to help.
If I commission someone and they have under priced art, I add in a few bucks to help boost their confidence.
If they go above and beyond drawing for me, and their work and professionalism is impressive, I leave tips.
I don't make a lot of money. But I like to believe in the "pay it forward" method.
I try to draw presents for artists on their birthdays who respond to my comments. Not because I love their art, but because I appreciate the time they have taken to talk to me.
Please be kind to you fellow artist. Go out of your way to leave a comment on a deviation of someone you've never seen before. Tell them how much you enjoy their art.
When their prices are too low, give them more, even if they refuse. Tell them they are worth more, and that will be worth more than any commission they could have gotten.
