it is so sad seeing :devblackmonkey-pro's spread so ungratefully. and by that I mean, some bought the product officially either in DLsite or deviantart, and leaked it everywhere while bragging like they are the ones who made it. It is very sickening.
Buying something does not give you a right to be such a jerk, moreover if you did not buy it in the first place.
I know piracy cannot be avoided, and mostly everyone has done it already..but still maaan. i feel like shit.
Banana Split Fanmix 3 was mine and *mazjojo's project under BMP. This is kind of a first time for me to feel like this, since I felt my hardwork is not appreciated. Because some are too shameless that they complain for something they got for free.
Here are few of those many comments that really struck me
"Yes,yes..we must wait..besides WE ALWAYS have to wait whenever BMP releases their work..then we have to wait extra for the Uncensored version > - >"
"No. I just feel that the folk who don't want the link I posted are ungrateful for me posting it."
"What a fucking flower"
"Welcome newfag. Besides, its either we see it here or not buy it at all. either way, he's not getting paid."
and I have some friends here in my country that pretend they do not have copies of our work. Saying they support us but then they are just one of those who complain in some random forum or sharing thread, complaining about waiting for too long, complaining about censorship, complaining about the picture, complaining about almost everything, all of those anonymous people think it is okay to speak out without manners, to hurt others' feelings, just because they can't be known in real life.. ugh..
How would an artist like me would get motivated to continue what we are doing. What we are doing that we share to everyone. I guess my friend is right, we make pictures for each other, share to each other, I am sure if I share it somewhere online, I would just get a really bad day.
What I am most sad about is how my crewmates go really sad when these things happen, It's really okay if it is happening only to me..but it is happening to my crewmates, my crewmates who are really kind-hearted and understanding. Sorry for speaking so many things out, I know it has no point but I think I just reached my limits. It is not me to speak out many stuff like this.
I just hope people out there could at least respect us artists and our hardworks (even though I know yaoi is not respectable in the first place) the same way we respect anyyone who come to us.
