Hey guys. I really need to make a proper one of these. Yes
But, first, something I'd like to ask. It's about Llama's.
Llama's are cool, right? Kinda reminds me of a camel. The badges are neat too, a way of giving and receiving something small on DeviantArt. I used to give them out a lot when I was starting off on here, before I finally became too lazy and gave up on it. Recently I've gotten quite a few from random artists and people. In fact I've gotten 3 in the past day. Only I've noticed that these are from people who have given Llama's out to many others already, which is made apparent by the comments section being flooded with "thx for the llama." Something else I've noticed is being visited by random people with the similar "thx for the visit."
What I'd like to ask you all is this; is all of this done for the purpose of getting more views and badges, instead of getting them to begin with with the art that you create? Because if it is, that bugs me. Of course this could be the whole "don't look a gift horse in the mouth scenario," and right now I'm probably sounding like a selfish two faced prat. But at the same time, I like to feel that people visit my page and give me these badges because they enjoy my content (or because I give them one because I really like their content. Works both ways) If this is all happening to get me to visit your page to add onto the evergrowing list of people who fall for the same tactic, then please take it somewhere else. Thank you.this has been bugging me for a while :\ try and get a journal up later, need to get two sketches done by next week.
