Now go Corrupt your lover.
United States
There have been many times over the years when I have heard, from many different people, the statement of "I wish I was still as creative as I was when I was younger."

You know, when I was younger, and I mean... -really- young... I used to just string together a bunch of letters, then show them to my parents and ask them what they words they were. And the answer I always got back was "Nothing. ...It's just gibberish."

Now I'm older and I understand how sentence structure works, and word definitions, and the proper formats and ways to use text in order to get complex and intricate ideas out to other people.

I don't think we became 'less creative'. I think we simply understand now how things work. Unless you're trying to define 'creative' as 'uneducated'. When you're little, you're not really certain how a goat-creature is going to have seven heads, three pairs of wings, and six sets of legs. You just draw it because it looks cool. But as you get older you get a sense of anatomy and attempt to work things out so that someone else could look at them and go "Yeah. You know what? That seems reasonable and believable." Maybe it doesn't have seven heads and twelve legs anymore, but you know what? That doesn't make you less creative.

It just makes you more thoughtful.

And if anything, it makes you -more- creative because you're considering in-depth details that you would have otherwise overlooked. We're treading on a dangerous ground here where 'creative' almost implies 'ignorant to details', and that really shouldn't be.

If you WANT to make a seven-headed goat-creature with twelve legs and six wings, then you have every right to, and just because you know better doesn't mean it should stop you. But don't consider yourself less creative simply because you understand more about how anatomy and structure works, and because your brain happens to take that into consideration possibly without you even realizing it at first.

Hey, hey! Your faithful reader again! XD So, I saw that Abian is finally finished. Not gonna lie. I cried. TTuTT It was so good and it ended so well! I'm happy for Simon and Roxanne and hope that Lava and Marctavious find their way to happiness someday, too. Awesome work. Totally. And, I have to say, I know it took you years to finish, but I feel like the wait made the conclusion all the more worth it. <3 I've wandered over to House In The Shadows and can't wait to see what that has to offer. I love Armkitty already! Your style is so unique, I could look at your drawings all day. I love it all! As always, keep up the great great work!

I am sad that it took me months to check my dA account and see this, but thank you so much! :D Hearing that the ending was worth it is always nice. I admit, I'd feel more than a little terrible if I had allowed so many things to get in the way like that, and then given it a subpar ending. Thank you again!

I fell in love with Abian the minute I started to read it, I loved the look and the style and just everything about it. I FINALLY managed to track you down here on DA. Just wanted to let you know how much I love what you do. c: Keep up the good work!

I totally get the "Now go corrupt your lover." thing, in fact, when I read it I went: "LOL, I get that." XD

Seriously, that's what I said in my head. XD

Anyway... fancy...
