minna-san, SACCHAN IS BACKABBBBB!!!11! ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ after like 50393638763 years loollllll not even kidding-
And I'm actually appearing this time with an interesting subject that's been on my mind for a while. Man, I miss these discussion journals! So I thought it's time to finally get down to writing it ne~ :iconjunesplz:

So before I begin - as usual - I'm just going to be dropping a warning here: this journal is absolutely NOT directed at any deviant in particular! I am going to be addressing some social issues in this journal, and would appreciate it if you could read this with an open mind. Nothing in this entry is meant to be inappropriate or flame, but warnings are always nice even for the smallest of things that could perhaps cause ructions. Opinions/thoughts on the topic would be great, but if you have nothing of appropriate substance to say, then please refrain from commenting. Thank you!!
_(:3 」∠)_

With Patreon becoming more and more popular these days with artists, I've been taking great notice of the things they offer on their accounts there. These all range from actual software resources to rated works, but what I want to talk about in this journal are the tutorials part of things.
Not gonna lie, when I first heard about Patreon I was pretty surprised to see artists make as much profit as they do on things like this. For as long as I could remember - being 80% self-taught at art myself - I pretty much thrived off of tutorials on the net. They were always free and easily accessible because of this, so seeing helpful material with a price tag attached at first took me aback. If this was what went down about 7 years ago, my art life would probably be non-existent. Not that I'm saying ALL tutorials and helpful resources aren't free! There are tons out there available and still being churned out, and I am so grateful for that, ughhh. I won't even go into how helpful certain tutorials and artists on this site have been to me in terms of improving~! 

Everyone has their personal take on this though, so here's my 2 cents: I'm personally not too sold on the idea of making money off of tutorials because I feel that helping artists out - whether they can afford it or not - is something really precious! Not everyone has access or the means to actually pay for things, but help or advice I think is something I love to give people from the heart ne. I do however admit it takes time and some effort to create visual help and to structure descriptions for further understanding, but to me - who was once a helpless amateur at drawing at some stage and am still learning - this is one of the best, most appreciative things I could have ever come across. Because boy, did the tutorials I followed and artists who contributed freely help me a butt ton. Plus it was a really good way of breaking the barrier between the more popular artists and those who are just starting out! Which is still so endearing if you ask me waaaah ; v ; /
Please note though that this is just how I feel about the subject! And I'm in no way brainwashing anyone here please, lol.

But what do you guys think and feel about tutorials for money? I'd love to hear your thoughts! I've actually been really curious for like the past few weeks, LOL. So feel free to drop off your thoughts and feelings down there! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ And please remember no bashing or mentioning of anyone welp;;; this is a civil discussion!

☆★☆ RaNDOM QUESTION: What are you currently obsessing over, Sacchan?
- zombies that eat brains HAHAHAHA this is what watching The Walking Dead does to you ok--- ☆★☆


Zombie kid in bound.

Do you know where I work? At the zombie labs.

I am addicted to Hunter X Hunter, KHR, Sengoku BASARA, Bleach, Kuroko no Basuke, Digimon, Samurai Champloo, DOGS, Inazuma Eleven, and too many other things I honestly can't remember.
I thirst for Veil of Maya, Disturbed, As I Lay Dying, Born of Osiris, Circle of Contempt, the GazettE, Killswitch Engage, Make Them Suffer, Evanescence, and Linkin Park (or at least the way they were in 2004).
I feed on Mortal Kombat, Tekken, Devil May Cry, Call of Duty, Crysis, Battlefield, Dead Space, and too many others.

My favourite Vocaloid producers are probably Utsu-P and Rin Ginsuke.

My favourite movies are Pacific Rim and Jet Li: Fearless. I really love action and sci-fi movies.

... Surprisingly an EXO and Bangtan girl. Still mesmerized by LuHan but DAMN LAY// J-Hope and Suga R.I.P

Don't be afraid to drop comments on my profile~~ I love reading comments, hnn~~ I love writing them too! AND I WILL THANK YOU FOR THE WATCH BE PREPARED WOOP-

My OC's are my treasure

oops oops makeshift FAQ:
- I'm a little timid when it comes to making friends in general, but that doesn't mean I'm unfriendly!! We might have something in common, so don't be afraid to strike up conversation with me if you like! ( ◉ ∀ ◉ )

- Sorry, but my Skype is very personal. (´・ω・`) It's for people I know IRL or very close internet peeps, so please don't feel bad if I refuse to give out my Skype name.

- I have a complex and complicated relationship with birthdays in general, so if I don't draw you a birthday gift please don't hold it against me LOL. I may draw you something as a random gift because I like random gifts, but birthdays aren't important to me personally due to religious reasons.

- Please ASK ME ABOUT USING ANYTHING. I'm generally cool with art-related stuff, but PLEASE ask me about it; I don't bite, unless it's a case of art theft orz

♠ ♣ ♥ ♦

Some important things you should know about me~:
I don't do requests, art trades, or collaborations with/for just anybody. This is for friends only.
I don't do RP's.
I am not interested in yaoi/yuri, thank you very much.
Check my commission journals for commission statuses.

All in all, I've got a lot of beef with the world-- tHuG LyF guys -- but I'm also a really chill person, ne? :iconlazingplz:

THANKKKK YOU EVERY1 FOR ALL THE WONDERFUL SUPPORT NE!!!! Your watch and comments and overall support of my art means the world to me aaahh! So take Tao's kissus as a freebie because I don't have cookies gOMENASAI
