Journal Entry: Tue Sep 22, 2015, 12:29 PM
| About me | F. A. Q

You may not know this about me, but when I was younger I didn’t know what to do with money, aside from buying books to create my very own classic books collection. I thought that once I became a paid employee, working my butt off for about 350 euros per month, I would know what to get: a laptop, a new graphic tablet, a kindle – maybe, but I have not realized that with just a laptop and my trusty old graphic tablet at my disposal I can continue writing and drawing fairly easily. So why do I need all these new things if what I need I already have?

Why don’t I use my money for something better than gadgets or a ball jointed doll that I would mould to look exactly like Dhonia? :> I’ll make it myself! I have other things I can spend my money on.

It finally dawned on me 4 months ago, to order 1 volume per month of Fullmetal Alchemist, that’s why I’m in a new FMA craze right now. 2 months ago I went ahead and also ordered a Romanian comic entitled Harap Alb Continua – The White Slave After Story. It is the first professionally released Romanian comic and I was excited to be one of just 1000 people who had the bundled editions :D And it dawned on me: I don’t like collecting manga or comics, because most of the times they are stories I’ve seen many many times before and in the case of comics, hundreds of times before. I am not a person to spend money on something that doesn’t have an original good story, one that hasn’t been told before in that particular style.

So hence this month I will make it my goal to collect mangas and comics created by the deviant art community. :iconnebezial: has been on my mind for some time now, but I had been slightly iffy as to whether or not to get Sunstone, Ravine or Death Vigil, bit now I am sure I will. :happybounce: Also I’ve remembered a certain manga by :iconshilin: I read on her site the first volume and loved the first 3 chapters. Carchiphona is certainly on my to buy list, I think I will do that in December if she has a ship day then :D

Thinking about this idea of encouraging the growing comic book scene of Romania and the mangakas and comic book artists of Deviant Art, made me realize something that has been raking on my brain for the past few days. Sakimichan does not do manga, nor graphic novels, nor web comics, yet! she gets almost one MILLION dollars per year from Patreon. By doing fan art – and tutorials and videos but that’s beside the fucking point.

She focuses all her skill and effort into pleasing the mass market that feeds her money, instead of doing something productive. Fuck it, with 850 000 dollars per year you could very well buy the equipment to make the greatest comic ever, but… no.

Fan art.

Way to go.

So many people look up to you, too!

If most of her works was original or for a story she would put into print, I would say: “Great! You have a vision you wish to share with the world. People are supporting you and you give back by making tutorials and videos. I find it a fair exchange for the money you receive to work on your project.”

But her work is not original. She does fan art, already preestablished characters. And people support her… because… boobies and cocks!

By comparison, I looked up Shilin’s Patreon page. Guess what the hard working mangaka that does every page herself + colouring + shipping to different countries (I presume, I might be wrong on that part – if I am, still it’s paying someone to do it for her!) gets? 4000 dollars. Yeah! An original manga that is still going and which is awesome by the way in both style and story, is financed with 4000 dollars per month.

Nei Ruffino, :icontoolkitten: another artist I admire and has the goal of creating her very own comic books and graphic novels gets 2000 dollars per month.

Compare that with the 65 000 Sakimichan gets for making fan art, and you can see why I gripe. It’s just so mind boggling how shallow people can be. Oh, lets give money to the millionare (because that’s where she technically stands now) that does fan art ecchi and porn and not to the people that actually work to achieve a goal. I know patreon queen’s goal: I wanna be rich! Doesn’t matter no one will ever remember me for anything of my own! I am rolling in dollars!

  I do not wish harm onto Sakimichan. I hate where her craze for moneys has taken her art and its such a shame too. She could possibly make great graphic novels if she tried or wanted or persevered. But the number of people that throw away 20-30 dollars per month/person just so they can have some tantalizing female and male parts to which they can… let’s not beat around the bush, shall we: wank off to, is far too high and far too gullible.

When everything of this will fade away, what will everyone remember of sakimichan? Has she given substantial things to the world like a manga or a comic, or had her works published in comic books like :iconartgerm: or :iconnebezial:? I will not take a shot at answering my own question, because I never see any search results in google aside from deviant art and patreon for her name.

Porn, even good porn, is forgettable. A good story however will stick with you forever.

So… :shrug:


P.S. I am expecting white knights to retaliate any minute now! So come at me, bro! :noble:

I notice you’re from Romania. A lot of history there!


I've found that a lot of people here in the U.S. don't know much about their own country, much less anyone else's.  :(


I post prayer updates about different countries. Part of the reason is to raise awareness  about what's going on in the rest of the world.


Recently I’ve started a personal initiative; if I notice someone on DA  is from another country, If I've done their country I let them know.

It’s my way of letting them know that others are thinking about their home. :)


This update is about your home!…


GOD bless
