first off, hallo new watchers
. Thanks for taking interest in the animations I've uploaded recently from streams. However I need to talk about something serious so we'll avoid any confusion in the future, mostly concerning comments directed to people who commission me during streams and what not.
When someone commissions me and I post their artwork on my gallery, I expect that the person who commissions me gets the utmost respect from those who comment on my images. While you might not like the characters depicted, disagree with design choices, etc, please realize that it is not okay to ridicule someone's design choices underneath the image they paid me to make for them. While I am the one responsible for the interpretation of the character in the said image, please respect that the characters drawn by me for others are designed by others through much hard work and dedication, and that while it is okay to have opinions of their portrayal, it is not okay to make the person feel bad for it publicly underneath my work. People should be allowed to create a character any way they want so long as it makes them happy, regardless of outside opinion. So a few clarifications on rules:1.) please do not make rude conjectures at characters that belong to others in the comments of my gallery, regardless of image. Critique is no problem. However, please understand that I am in no place to provide any sort of feedback on those characters as they do not belong to me, I am simply the artist drawing them. You are more than welcome to critique the art, but be respectful to the characters of others and their respective owners.
2.) please respect the commissioner under the image for their character. The last thing anyone wants is for the commissioner to feel bad because they were singled out in the comments of a picture i made specifically for them. That picture is there for them to enjoy, not be sad about.
Also, following recent streams, I want to establish a few rules. My picarto streams are safe for work and intended to be inviting for anyone who wishes to watch them. We had incidents recently where either topic or people have made others (specifically the people commissioning me) uncomfortable during the stream FOR THEM. Therefore the picarto stream rules are as follows:
1.) No pron talk. I understand that alot of you folks may enjoy nsfw work in your spare time. I however do not, and many of my streamers do not. Keep it pg13 and lower. We have kids that watch my streams, better not scar them.
2.) while debating is okay (political, religious, otherwise) please be respectful of other watcher's viewpoints. I know these are sensitive topics and I feel it should be okay to discuss them. However, they need to be kept civil and respectful during the stream.
3.) no roleplaying during the stream. Get an IM room for that if you need to.
4.) do not spam the chat excessively. you ever get an annoying infomercial that you wanna mute? Don't be that infomercial or we can and will mute you. Ahhhh peace and quiet.
5.) DO NOT deliberately start fights or aggravate other watchers during the stream. We've all seen it happen. You do this and you're gonna have to go watch someone else.
if you abide by these rules, you should be fine. The chats do get crazy at times, which is expected knowing the quirky kiddos that show up. But PLEASE, keep it an environment that is fun and tolerable for everyone watching. If you have issues following these rules, there are more than 1000 other picarto channels you can check out instead.
