I wanted to say thank you for giving me a lovely experience for the year that I’ve been here. It’s been great meeting all of you and seeing your creativity and art blossom and flourish. I have gotten to know really, really incredible people and I would not take any of that back for a second! You guys are so wonderful. You all are so much more talented than you give yourselves credit for.
But my time with Dantae’s blog has come to an end. There’s an accumulation of reasons for this, but mainly I have to sum it up to a few things: I don’t have the time to answer asks, my interests have shifted, and I’m completely focused on my career as a professional artist.
I’m so sorry that it’s ending this way—just dying out—although our time together was short and sweet. I’m going to leave Dantae’s blog up and not change anything, however I will be deleting my side/mod blog.
To be honest, I never imagined Dantae to become what he is now. Almost 1,000 of you follow and appreciate him, and that’s something I could never have dreamed of a year ago! You all have made me grow so much, in both my artwork and as a person! If I had the time, I would thank each and every one of you personally for what you’ve done for Dantae and for me :) I can’t even put into words how awesome that is… Thank you, thank you.
Maybe I’ll see some of you out there in the real world soon. I hope I do!
I adore all of you, I really do.
So long, friends <3
How do you like the female blaze endermen that ripped you off?
ALL RIGHT, let’s clear something up here.
First off: I cannot control other people’s character designs. I think everyone has their own personal right to create whatever they want, as long as no one is getting hurt because of it. I love seeing what kinds of designs everyone comes up with, they’re all unique and great and it’s all in good fun. From what I’ve seen so far, no one’s character designs have been made with ill-will. No one has bad intentions here.
Secondly: I do not, nor will I ever, claim to be the “creator” of enderblazes. I know I was not the first to create an enderblaze, and I certainly will not be the last. In my personal headcannon, the chances of a blaze and an enderman meeting (and especially becoming mates) are basically impossible, so Dantae is the only enderblaze in existence. Now, it’s important to remember that that is my PERSONAL HEADCANNON, and my own ideas don’t always line up with everyone else’s. And you know what? That’s the beauty of it. Everyone has their own ideas and yet we can still make our characters mesh and interact and that’s the wonderful thing about all of these askblogs.
Third: Is it obvious that (the character you’re referring to) is inspired by Dantae’s design? Absolutely. There is no doubt that the artist likes how I depict Dantae, and so they took some attributes and placed it on their character. The placement of some of the colours and the hooves are the biggest similarities. But you know what? It’s not a rip-off, and it’s not copying. It’s a little flattering. There are enough differences in the character’s design so that the artist really made that design their own.
With all of that in mind, it’s important to recognize the difference between being inspired by a design and making it your own, and copying. This character is kind of pushing the barrier a little, but again, it’s still unique enough to pass. See? No harm done.
Lastly, if you are thinking of making an enderblaze character and are worried about your design looking too much like Dantae, please come talk to me! I will be happy to work your design out with you and help you to the best of my ability.
I’m going back to my school tomorrow (winter break is over… sniff sniff) and I won’t have very much time to reply to anything in my inbox for the first few days, so that’s why I’ll be so slow! Sorry about that ):
Aaaand also gotta finish the comic.
Thanks for your patience everyone!
Leaving today! Toodles my darlings <3
