Is it ever funny to you non-professional doodlers (like me) when you're just casually sketching and someone comments "You should be an artist" or "You could make a lot of money selling that"?

Because to me, it makes me realize:
A. People who don't know a lot about drawing get easily impressed
B. This applies to my 'backroom theory' and they think there's some magical way I could just start making millions with this doodle of a zombie skateboarding on a bracheosaurus.

Backroom theory: Working at a grocery story people tend to ask if I can get blank from 'the back' which is a mystical land where whatever they want is just there waiting to be had, when in reality that's not how grocery stores work.

Yes. I will have drawings get lots of praise, but be utter crap that fellow artists/people on NG will be like "meh. s'alright." It's just easy to impress people who don't draw.

B. This applies to my 'backroom theory' and they think there's some magical way I could just start making millions with this doodle of a zombie skateboarding on a bracheosaurus.

Do it! Or don't do it, so I can do it.

I like this theory. Don't some grocery stores have giant back stockrooms though? I have never made this request, but depending on what you're asking for, it doesn't seem completely unreasonable.

Dude it's like, a fucking opportunity. Every time some flat-faced dickwad gawks in at you sketching it doesn't take much to turn around and fire off a quick "Got $10? 'cause I'll sketch whatever you want, here and now".

If you get lucky, you'll manage to amass a queue before too long, and nothing boosts self-esteem further then people paying for your normal sketches <3

after that I'm gonna have to make myself a talkbox.

WORLD SHATTERING REALIZATION.

I never thought of that. Gonna start doing it haha

Yeah, we do carry things in the back, but usually the stuff people want are on sale and thus limited in stock and not overstock (meaning stuff we also have in the back). I've only ben working at this store for three weeks and I've gotten asked to fish something from "the back" maybe 21 times. Most ridiculous thing being lobster tails.

I have a Monotron actually! It's pretty cool, especially if you plug a subwoofer into it >:D
I originally got it cause I thought I could effectively route guitars/ipods through it, but it doesn't actually affect that very much. It is good for a portable mini synth for the price compared to what's out there go, I'd recommend getting one.

Also, I totally want to have a weird synth-y collection, but all I have at the moment IS the monotron. Hopefully when I'm old, I will have like an awesome room of synth gear.

@Lunds - That's pretty cool, it's like a dark gritty comic (well, that's what it feels like to me)

@Kinsei - I don't think anyone here has a Tankman. The only person I knew in the art forum who had one was Captain-Ben, but he's not around that often. I could try to reach him for you, if you'd like.

Dats a nice collection, I'm collecting percussive instruments: Slit drums, maracas, washboards, cajon, berimbau , spoons, taiko, pogo cello, steel pans, tank drums, bodhrans, doumbeks... so far I got about half of these, I also really want an accordian among other things. I bought a kalimba too, I'd like to see yours.

I've made this point before, and I really don't want to be telling you how to do your job or anything, but if you think it's that bad (which I agree with btw) wouldn't you reinforce that with bans or official warnings or whatever? It seems that poeple aren't taking this seriously...

I generally don't think bans achieve a lot. However on this occasion it does call for it, because some of the behaviour in that thread was absolutely awful.

A day ban to Kinsei, Captain-Carrion, Spaghetti14 and jeeshwa123, and an official warning to big-jonny-13 for
- General impoliteness to a new and eager user.
- Using your "reg" statuses to mob up on a user.
- Forcing your opinion down someone's throat where it's not wanted (or requested, for pete's sake, read the opening post).
- Overall doucheyness.

Also a day ban to J-qb for backseat modding.

Wow, that thread became disgusting overnight.

I'll take the warning, but I feel you're just lumping me in with the rest of them just because I posted in the thread. He said to design a weapon like this <insert picture> and I made a comment about how such a weapon would be impractical. I was attacked for leaving a comment, so all I did was respond and ask how I was being rude by asking something. I might have not had the best phrasing per se, but I did not attack the user, and I certainly did not contribute to that thread anymore, let alone contribute to the clusterfuck it became.
