So, How Many of You were Guilty...?

...Of failing to notice the request in this description?

Knowing how often artists' comments are overlooked, I tried to circumvent the error further by putting the request directly in the title itself. And yet... :XD:

I can only surmise that some of you had perhaps deliberately chosen to favourite it all the same out of a sense of loyalty (really? =P). In which case I can only thank you for the display, and for knowing that I could possibly ever inspire such feelings. For the others, well, I have a choice of simply remaining mystified, or charging you with... What shall I call it? A momentary stupor, let us say. It is a more delicate 's' word to use on the occasion.

(Please bear in mind that my tongue is firmly in my cheek. ;))

If, however, I could persuade any of you who made the mistake to very kindly pay the same attention to the original deviation (which, by the way, can be viewed larger than the ID piece, and which is pining after your misapplied favour ;)), then I shall be truly grateful.

For the deviant who kindly requested a print of this, a print has been made available -- on the original piece. :D

Thank you

Thank You... by jennyleigh:: Liek thanks you :: by Liek
Thank you so much to new watchers, to everyone for all your favourites, for your continued interest, and quite simply for your general tolerance.

I am not always able to reply to every comment (though I do try), and I have had to choose not to thank everyone individually for favourites and watches (but again, I try to acknowledge the latter as much as possible), for which I do beg your pardon. Please be assured, however, that I appreciate them very much.

Fave it? Heck, I submitted it for a Daily Deviation (in "Artistic Nudes", of course);)

Not me! I always read desriptions, in fact I find it really annoying when people just put ... in their description. What is that all about? I love reading how pieces of art are done and what the idea behind them was. I do think dA should make it possible to use any picture as an ID though. In protest of people that don't read, I will fave your journal instead!!

Thank you, Laura. Yes, I do think the fuss with uploading into the ID category first is irritating. We should just be able to select a piece. There is the option of uploading something directly from the computer to use as ID, but there is an enforced cropping on that, which is no good.

I just read comments bellow, and dbananza's comment is a good example of people who doesn't read or doesn't understand at all what the artist or other people says. Sadly you're right, is the kind of people who make you reconsider stay in DA :(
