    I just want to say something, think before you comment.

    I will see comments such as "I wish I could shade like that, I could never possess that talent" or "my skins suck lol! teach me", sometimes along with compliments to the artist. I am not saying this specifies to skins, it can apply to anything.

    as it's not the intention, it can make the artist feel uncomfortable or awkward because the person is bringing themself down and the artist will feel compelled to say something like "ah, don't say that. I think your skins are nice" when in reality they only say that because they feel it'd be rude to ignore the person's comment. In general, it's healthier to not bring down your own work.

    I am not pointing at anyone in particular here, but I have felt a little uncomfortable replying to certain comments because of this. I do keep in mind that it is not anyone's intention, but try to stick out of bringing down your own work when praising other people's work. :,0

    nope. not to be rude but i haven't seen your comments anywhere recently lmbo

    if you DO feel like you're doing this, it's not something to feel ashamed about. just try to stop and move on, we make mistakes and learn from them.

    I feel like all of this is pointed at me?

    Love your post, and honestly...(my personal opinions only in the following rant)...people just need to work on their own stuff (practice, practice, practice!) and do it because they ENJOY it, not to simply produce copycat stuff mimicking someone else's stuff/style anyway. There would be absolutely nothing MORE boring anyway than seeing all of the skins on a given site resemble each other too much in terms of theme and style execution.

    yeahh ):

    Ig we could always say "everyone starts from somewhere, just give it time and you'll improve" or something? qwq or do what JessaMoon or Michiru said

    It happens to me every time, at the beginning I felt uncomfortable to reply to such comments, but now I just unplug my brain and reply stuff like ‘Practice makes perfect’ (・ε・`*)

    I'm quite the self-deprecating person in general, but I normally try to avoid saying that my own work is bad while complimenting someone else's work.

    Yeah sure, from a realistic perspective I may feel envious towards someone who does tremendously awesome work, while my own still has a way to go, but that's no excuse to call my stuff bad.

    Yeah it downhearts me when tehy're not able to see that creative flair within themselves- and Christ some literally produce flawless skins- and have amazing talent when it's tehir first skina nd not be able to see it! x

    Exactly! Or when they say they'll never be as good as you or something. Anyone can be good at anything with practice. And it's so awkward even when you tell them they're good and they keep denying it. It's a shame because most of the time they are really talented.

    mhm! definitely can agree and say that I will try to do the same when this happens^^
    JessaMoon said 2020-08-01 10:54:45
    I will sometimes get this and I feel down for them since it is honestly just practice, patience and drive to improve your style- so I just try to offer tips what I learnt? I never know how to truly react other than assure them so I can completely agree x
