hehe I have a tendency to go overboard sometimes :la:
but I agree with you, I think it's important to read the artist's input :nod:
It kinda strikes me as a no-brainer, isn't it obvious one would read it? So why wouldn't you put anything there? XD

Going overboard is better than writing nothing. I mean you can always pick just certain parts to read then but you can't do that with only three dots there. >__>

true ^^
Personally, I just get disappointed there's nothing to read. It makes the work seem more.. distant. Unrelatable to or something :meow: The artist is making no attempt to connect to the audience whatsoever.

Great points! I always try to put personal touches in my comments. I think it makes me seem more "human" to my readers. I also hate the generic "..." or "^" comments. I almost always read comments. I want to know what the artist or writer thinks about their piece.

Great article! :)

This is all very important to know. No matter how casual or professional the artist, we all could do with the reminder and the practice. At least, I know I could... :-)
And comments can be just as important for the person leaving them as they are for the one receiving. Learning how to talk about art, what makes a work good or bad or whatever is a skill unto itself. Learning what you like (or don't) about someone else's work can help you in developing your own.
The rest is just good manners- which are always better to use than not.

I always hate it when people do not state WHERE there fan-art is coming from, what movie or game etc...

Ditto. And just because something is in the fan art category doesn't mean you don't need to give credit anyway.
