Ok so I’ve been quiet about this for some time now, and I thought I should break that silence and make this public. (Hey other people are posting art PSA’s, this ain’t new)
We are Artists, We are many
Being a artist on Tumblr alone isnt easy. There are millions of other people  doing the exact same thing you’re doing. Amongst all of them you can be overlooked so easily. Now I am familiar with all those PSAs about not worrying about being popular and loving your own art. Thats all well and good, no ones debating that. But we artist want to share our art with the world. We want to show everyone what we can do.
The Wall
When we receive praise and love for our work, thats the best feeling in the world for us. We all have friends, fellow artists or not, that support us. But here on Tumblr, your art might not get pushed out into the crowd. For myself as an example, I get a 1 reblog for every 10 likes on something. And this is only including when I originally post it. When art post is liked, no one else sees it. Likes stay hidden and don’t appear on others dashes. (And yes, some blog themes do show likes, this I am aware)
Likes are good, but Reblogs do a lot more
When someone reblogs your art, a whole new set of people get to see it. Most of them are people who have never seen your stuff before. For example, whenever Carbines Official WIldstar Tumblr reblogs my Wildstar art, I get bombarded with likes, reblogs even follows! But before that, when I post it in the first place, not much happens. Dont get me wrong, I’m grateful I get anything, but feedback and notoriety is what keeps an artist like me going, and many others as well. Now I may understand that sometimes something someone draws isn’t your cup of tea, that’s alright! But even if you show a little interest, a reblog does a world of difference.
Support your friends, Support those who care
I know this is all sounding a little preachy, but it’s something I needed to get off my chest. There are no complaints, there are no orders, just a call out from all us artists. From the big and professional, to the small and unseen. We all want to share our art with the world, and it can all begin with a reblog.
( I dont think I need to say that everyone should reblog this, it goes without saying no?)

reblogging for  awareness

I totally should reblog more. 

Seriously, I love it when y’all hit the like button on my art, but reblogging gives me actual hope for my future.

Anonymous said: I had a standard poodle growing up, who was very well trained and intelligent- but she did venture out within our four acres of land, which was not enclosed. She never got lost, and always came home when she was done foraging and enjoying herself outside. The neighbors loved her visiting their houses (all our neighbors had one or more dog and several acres aswell) and more or less I think she lived a very happy, healthy 14 years (she died of old age). I think it is okay in some circumstances.

No its not ok. You didn’t know what she ate or what animal she came across with. She could have been very well poisoned by people or she could have consumed something poisonous. Or have gotten hit by a moving vehicle or attacked by a wild animal. You (and her) got lucky and she died of old age (or so you tell me) but that doesn’t mean that it wasn’t dangerous. Allowing any pet to roam free is irresponsible. Please don’t let them outdoors unless you are supervising them. 

Our neighbor had a shi-tzu mix named Buddy. Buddy was left to roam constantly (in fact I never actually saw him with the people who owned him) and he was matted, covered in dirt and constantly hated by all the neighboring families because of his habit of tearing into garbage cans and spreading trash everywhere.

Attempts were made to catch him, but to no avail, he was too poorly socialized to trust people. One fine day, Buddy “went missing” and nobody ever found his body. It doesn’t take a genius to guess what happened to the little guy. Something killed him. Something or someone.

He crapped everywhere and made huge messes and clearly nobody really cared what happened to him so his death was probably a sweet relief. Don’t be that person who does that to your dog. Don’t leave your dog outside alone to roam like a pariah.

I can’t tell you how many stories I read regularly of dogs that wander off their property and onto farm land, and subsequently gets shot/killed for terrorizing livestock. Letting dogs wander freely is very dangerous.
