What's this for, then?

How do you react to ESL (English as a Second Language) DeviantArt users making posts in their native language?

6 deviants said I am an ESL user, but I don't use my native language in posts very often
5 deviants said I am pretty indifferent
3 deviants said I get annoyed, but don't say anything
3 deviants said I actually encourage ESL users to communicate in their native language with me and others
3 deviants said Other! (Please comment)
1 deviant said I get very annoyed and demand that the post be translated into English!
No deviants said I am an ESl user, and I frequently make posts in my native language

Thank you for your support!

Do drop by in this lovely cozy shop!…

PSAThis is a little message that I wanted to get out to my watchers and commenters (those of them that still remain, that is :B ).
First of all, I would once again like to stress that I read and appreciate every comment, even though I am slow to reply these days. But at the same time, if you do not mind - while making comments, could you please avoid phrases like 'I can't wait what happens next!' or 'I would like to know more about this character!'. I know this is merely a polite expression of interest, but I am currently under a somewhat high level of stress, mostly due to a constistently large workload (I didn't get any Christmas break, and the prospects of any break at all in the foreseeable future are virtually non-existent... And as my mind is my main tool of the trade, I fear it is becoming worse for wear).
Thus, more often than not, seeing comments like this intensifies my anxiety, and when I do catch a free moment to draw and write a little, I freak out and have mental conversatio

My blogsI am pretty new to this blogging thing, so they are probably gonna stay empty half the time... But here are the linkies just in case!

Why don't I always respond to comments?

I can't stress it enoughI have checked my inbox, and realized that some of the comments there are over two months old. This makes me tremendously guilty, and while I've made journals and polls about the matter, I was recently given to understand that some commenters are far from forgiving when an artist is lingering with a reply.
Please, please, please, I beg of you: understand this.
I read, and appreciate, and love every comment. The fact that I take a while to reply, or sometimes forget to reply, does not mean that I am arrogant or negligent. It means that I am too busy, or maybe too tired to find the right words.
Much as I enjoy contributing to this community, I also have some off-line obligations, such as studying (I only just recently got my Master's Degree in linguistics, and I might give a shot to post-grad education) and working as a translator and occasional English tutor to support my family. Our relationship is far from smooth, but we are all working to improve it. Plus, few as they are, I have a c

And why do I respond to comments in a certain way?

Dear people of the world!I have recently noted a somewhat exasperating trend in my replies to comments. They usually go along the lines of '.... and I hope you like the drawing/comic/story!'. I know this may seem nagging and annoying to some - but the reason I share the stuff I come up with on this website is to hear what other people think about it. I am always striving to improve my skills, and hearing feedback is important to me! Plus, I always gets stupidly excited when I come up with a concept or plotline, and I hope in my heart of hearts that it will resonate within the viewers' souls.
So, while I appreciate you staying in my gallery long enough to share the stories about how you levelled up your video game character, or how excited you are to be the first to comment, or which song you are listening to right now, or how to get to your favourite pancake restaurant (that actually happened), or what you think of your pubic hair (that also happened), eventually I AM going to be a kill-joy and ask this

Important Note!My good friend :iconblueoakrogue: is opening commissions!

If you have funds to spare, be sure to check out her awesome work! Here are some of the lovely commissions and gift art :iconblueoakrogue: made for me before:

As you can see, her art is characterized by a thorough approach to detail, and a unique, recognizable style that is perfect for illustrating fantasy. As a client, I was never disappointed with my commissions, and I have always felt overwhelmingly flattered to receive gift art from such a wonderful artist!
The same, I believe,  can be said of others here on DA, too!
Here are the commissions :iconblueoakrogue: did for them:

That would be a pity because part of a stalker's job description is to not leave any comments, ever. :B
