Edit: this journal-response doesn't exist for people to agree with me, badmouth her, or to start a debate. I'm just posting this openly so that, should anything come of it, everyone can see my response and judge it for themselves.

Okay, katicolovesreginald, I like to answer these publicly, to avoid confusion and he-said-she-said. 

Just because you "didn't intend to" hurt someone, doesn't mean that you didn't. 
Just because you "didn't intend to" be rude, doesn't mean that you weren't. 

((Like how saying "no offense" doesn't make a comment any less offensive, you know?))

I honestly didn't think that you were TRYING to be rude (most rude things aren't intentional...).
If I had, I'd have left a much longer response. 

Case in point, I wasn't TRYING to be rude to you, but here we are. 

I'm going to explain as best I can...

Let's say you really like the color pink. 
So much so that you decorate your entire house in it.

Now imagine me coming into your house uninvited, looking around your living room and saying, 

"PINK? That's the color you choose to decorate with?? And it's all mixed fabrics, you know the Bible has a passage forbidding that, right??? The God I believe in only created red, blue, and yellow. Pink doesn't even exist. It's just lightish red. Why don't we call it lightish red? I'm not judging you, I'm just explaining my thoughts on your choice of decor."

Your comment on 10yrsy's journal was, from my point of view, pretty similar. 

And as for the rest of it, the thought that other people don't deserve to be happy, based off of something a book says (and it says an awful lot of things that no one who quotes it seem to care about when they're the ones doing it...) can only be described as rude.

Saying that there is only one way for people to be, to exist, is rude and ignorant. 

And choosing to state your beliefs as facts, while disregarding proven scientific facts, is pretty ignorant. 

But I apologize if my choice of terminology offended you.

Hey, everybody! 

It hasn't been too long since the last time I did this, but I've gained quite a few new watchers, so--

-- Please don't share my work to other sites.

And if you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO (which, I don't see happening, but hey...) especially don't post it without permission. Or if you can't just ask me, at least giving credit.
I don't really want my work posted by anyone but myself, but so long as I'm being credited, I -might- look around it.

((So if you find any of my pictures on any other site, and they don't have my username somewhere visible either on the picture, or in the post, please send me a link so that I can deal with it.))

-- If you post my work to other sites, please do NOT edit them in any way.

Yes, this includes putting text over it, "fog" effects, adjusting the color balance, "altering" a character so that it looks like one of your OCs, etc....

"Liking" a picture doesn't give you the right to do whatever you want with it, and posting something to the internet is not a forfeiture of rights.

I have my own Instagram now (which is mostly filled with WIPs and action figures...), so come visit me instead of reposting my work:
instagram.com/ashitarimai

Also, tumblr:
ashitarimai.tumblr.com

Thanks!

I'm not sure who's winning...


If I don't respond to a comment, please don't think that I'm rude, or that's it's not appreciated.
I'm just not very good with words...

It's gonna happen eventually, so..... what should I do for 100,000?

Hello Ashitarimai,
I follow your work since a little while and I was wondering if I can take you as DeviantWatch?

Oh my I am so late ah
Happy late birthday!

Uh, what can I say. You're a wonderful artist, and a beautiful person. I love your turtle art, and the Tcest! Your style of art and the way you draw it is like home to me, the soft lines and coloring, the warm feelings and emotions behind what you draw. It makes me smile. All of it.💜
Don't ever stop drawing, don't ever give up. You inspire me, and you're one of my favorite artists. Happy birthday, I hope you have a wonderful night, and I give you my best wishes.
