Your art is amazing, no matter what you draw, and you have inspired me with everything you do for years now. Keep doing what you love, and there will always be people there who'll like you for it. :heart:

People need to know that artists change their styles, no one can stay the same forever.In my opinion you are still an amazing artist.
Flametheorange Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I found you maybe.. a year ago?
and you improved so much from back then
styles changes
and if they don't like that, then they arn't true fans.
I don't care if your style changes or not, i'll forever love you!
you were the one who inspired me to draw in the first place.

You know i hate to have to admit it but... when i was in grade...mmmm 6 me and my friends stumbled on your youtube account and were amazed at what you did, you and other youtube animators where amazing to me, i think that was 7 years ago... i found your works again a year ago and became a fan of your art (( not your warrrior cats))), (( not obsessive and stalker like)) and i think you are a thousand times more talented then back 7-5 years ago.
besides Rats are 1000% more original then cats..Pshhhhhh
but hey
this is coming from a failed artist ( me)
but keep drawing your own thing because its fun and not for the fans.

From a little rose.

Hey, Flighty. I don't know if you remember me, but I'm Holly, the person who fixed the Rats In A Lab design. I'm sorry I disappeared off that by the way, stuff came up. I might be able to jump back in eventually.

Moving on... Listen. People have no rights to be hateful like that because your interests or art changed. It's still beautiful -- and you are still you. Take pride in who you are; just because you aren't drawing cats all the time doesn't mean you aren't an amazing person who has inspired many and been nice to others.

Some years ago, I saw your videos, and that's when I began to draw for the first time. I thought art was stupid, and I learned how great and inspiring it could be. And to this day, even if I don't leave comments and favorites all the time, your art is still inspiring. I wish you good luck, Flighty. Everything will be okay. :hug:

lovely-rainbow-neko Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012
I only have one thing to say, well two I guess, but they kinda get to go together..?

1) Your videos are what inspired me to try to start my own animations or at least just drawings, including amazing things on paint. (Not that I ever succeeded, but I tried.)

Yes, that is all. <3

So no matter what, you have me and all these other people who comment on this with their love and support. So anyone else can shove it. :D

I think I know the 6 year old warrior tard who said that untrue shit to you.
Seriously, why wouldn't they shut up? Your latest video was a storyboard. Not a complete package with some free girl scout cookies. They need to take some reality to the face.
Don't let whatever's bothering you get you down, Flighty!
I'm about 95% of the people who love you for you, your smarts, your style, your humor, everything awesome and lovable about you.
Cheer up! Do what YOU wanna do.

Draghanell Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Aw no Flighty. D:> Why are you sad? Do you miss your old OCs or something? ;-;
I read a few Comments on here, and if the Warrior fans hate that you don't draw cats as much as you used to then screw them. It's your art and you will do what you want because you spend your time so we can be happy and see it. Sure I may miss your old fursonas and such, but I think Maso is a keeper. She seems to really fit you and I love her design. Please don't try to be a people pleaser, you can't please everyone, I learned this the hard way and that's how I lost a few friends. Please cheer up Flighty, moping never solved anything and it affects us that you aren't happy. D:> ./Hugs/ We all still love ya Flighty.
Hollowed-Chimera Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Flighty. Just do what you like to do. Who cares what other people think? It's your decision what you post. If they don't like it, BOO-HOO. POOR THEM. Some people are haters, oh well. People are going to be like that. I personally love the changes you've made in recent times, I think it makes you so much more unique, and it keeps me looking for more. You're a fantastic artist, don't let people tell you otherwise. If it's something YOU like to do, keep doing it, no matter what. People will stick with you, too. Just like the ones in your comments down here.

TriangleMother Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Awwh, it's OK Flighty. .n.
We all grow out of things, that's part of the fun of trying something new! Yes, people will get angry or upset that you don't draw/animate what you used to, but sometimes old fans are lost as you stretch on and get new ones.
Heck, barely anybody knows me, but I still constantly get yelled at for not drawing so-and-so or such-and-such anymore. But I don't care, because I'm doing what I love, not working as some sort of slave to the fans I do have.

Just do what you love to do Flighty. Yeah, some people will get upset that you stopped drawing or animating something, but don't forget about the people like myself who will stay with you no matter what you start or stop doing. .u.
Me and many others watched/subscribed to you for your beautiful art, not your fandom. The people who get furious or outraged that you don't do something specific don't deserve to know you, and will never know about how amazing you really are. .u.
doomsdayCanine Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012
I don't care if you don't make cat stuff anymore.

Am I the only one who stuc around for your other stuff?

Even if you lost all your subscribers, I'd still stay. You are a individual. Why should you be kept prisoner by your talent? You can be whatever kind of storyteller you want. ANimatying, writing, drawing.
Yirina Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012
Im caught between telling you to suck it up, and saying that you shouldn't feel bad because you're amazing. Which is correct, you ARE amazing. However there are already lots of comments that say that, so i think im going with the first option.
Suck it up. Relying on your fans for self-esteem boosts is a bad habit.
If you just drew this vent to vent, okay then, thats okay. But if you drew this so that you could get nice comments.....meh.
anyway, hope you feel happier later and get plenty of cyber-hugs. :3
Burnmoon Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012
Don't. Don't.

Just don't.

You are the most epic mspaint artist ever, and you are what has got me to actually draw on that program! Because after seeing your animations, right then and there I decided I am going to pursue an art career! Screw the trolls! I bet half of them can't draw as well as you! All of the hours glaring at your art and trying to figure out how in the heck your able to do all that amazing details when I'm still trying to figure out how to shade... Your awesome!
Ekc6 Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012
I REALLY didn't mean for you to get hurt I am very sorry I should of kept my mouth shut and just enjoyed the animation I honestly from the bottom of my heart never meant any harm from what I sincerely thought was constructive criticism I don't think your an awful artist, a bad animator, or bad person. I was merely trying to figure out what happened..and I'm very straightforward if you hate me, block me, distaste me, feel insulted, curse at me, totally want to destroy me, or forever see me as a hateful jealous bitch
THATS OK cause I deserve it all of it *braces myself for the flaming* I've watched you for years I LOVE your creativity, stories *LOVE YOUR STORIES*, designs, art, animations, and your birdy stuff I CARE but I went about it ALL WRONG and I sounded extremely rude ignorant and wanting to put you down
When I was just trying to be honest with you I am very VERY sorry D,X
mechanicalmasochist Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
NO! its not you , I wouldn't ever take one persons critique and get upset just over that.

this is nostalgia as much as anything, animators I used to know you I never talk to now, friends i had on my first internet account who I don't know anymore.
the fact that my animations just don't have impact like they used to, its a lot of things and i know that shouldn't stress me out but when things are getting so bad in reality the internet is a hiding place and when that's crumbling too its tough you know?

perhaps I should make a description in this to clear things up,
I know my animation was jerky in that video, but I've never really used that flash technique for a while (which involves drawing each leg frame then the head and torso and lower half and tail on separate layers and pulling them together)so it was a lot of work with less result and I'll probably change it, at least the commissioner seemed happy with it though.

I don't hate you
Ekc6 Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012
I am so sorry I just I cannot yeah..I understand it all now and I mean I still shouldn't have said anything and I am sincerely sorry I got ahead of myself and I can understand the escape part I've always not fit in places and bullied to tears on a regular bases and never had friends accept for close family ones before my boyfriend gave me a social life but I just have a hard time explaining things and end up putting my foot in my mouth all the time I heard people say things and I thought I'd have the bravery or saying something before gossip continued and we could all get back on track and not care how people animated anymore and if the commissioner is happy that's all that really matters in the end and thank you for not...killing me ;u; your very merciful and I still support you and you have had a real impact on artists in general lots of people would give anything for the talent and confidence shown in your works just continue to be yourself and you'll always be a valued member of Da and Youtube and I hope things get better
Psycho-Owl Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
wut. why do so some people think change is a bad thing? I LOVE how much you've changed. sure in the older days you were great, but in these newer days you're even better! Improvement and change is good. and anyone who can't see that is close-minded and ignorant. I also really like how you've changed to drawing a lot of different subjects, like rats :meow: If you always drew warriors or always drew wolves, I would've definitely stopped being a fan of you a lonnnngggg time ago. So yeah. keep doin what your doin, because plenty of people appreciate the change, and how different you are then any other animator on youtube or artist on dA. c:

Flighty. Snap out of it will you? Where is the flighty who would make the trolls mad and make the bastards back down in a heart beat.
Where's the flighty who inspired me all those years ago to draw even better. And inspiring many others.
where's the flighty who draws for the hell of it and not for others entertainment. Where's the flighty who wasn't pushed over by others.
where's the Flighty who amazed me and thousands with outstanding simple or complicated pieces of art work or animations?
Because I see that flighty right now who is still inspiring me today. Don't give up.
Because your the most talented, wicked, inspirational artist I've ever seen.
Don't give up now.

We love you. Even if you feel like you lost some of your luster, you're still shining.
SURE some people miss your warriors
SURE some people miss ST
SURE some people miss Foxx
But those aren't the real reasons why we're your fans. You're a lovely lady with a hell of a lot of talent at drawing, animating, paper mache, and other costume-related craft.
You actually respond to some of your comments. Most animators won't even look. Do you know how happy it makes us to see you replied? It shows that you care about your fans as much as we care about you. We know you can't respond to all of them because there are so many. But it's the thought that counts 0u0
You're the reason why I found out about DeviantART. You're the reason why I try to animate. You may not realize this yet but...
You've made an impact on many lives. Inspired them to try to draw or animate or sculpt.

And as your fans, we will stick by your side for as long as you keep the flame going.
If we didn't...maybe we aren't even real fans.

DarkEeveeZ Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012
Flighty, look at all the comments below. We still love you, your art, your style, everything.
Being popular means nothing, really. Do you have a passion for what you do? Keep doing that. Keep having fun, no matter what other people think. I still admire at how well you use MS Paint! I always wait excitedly for what you're gonna draw next! So do other people. When I first saw you, I pretty much saw ALL of your videos, from the very beginning to the lastest. Don't give up, Flighty. Keep making your rats, your pokemon, all of your crazy birds and such. Remember, even if you were popular, you still would have been compared to more popular animators like :iconagoraphobic-blue: and :iconurnam7:. Trust me, I've seen some ugly fights about you and them. But keep making art, Flighty, don't give up!
Psycho-Owl Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Flighty's more popular than Blue and Urnam... some of her videos have around a million views. I don't really like blue because she acts like she draws for attention, and her attitude sucks, but Urnam is actually pretty nice (imo) and I can't picture Flighty getting into a fight with Urnam... I would understand if Flighty got pissed off at Blue though :P
DarkEeveeZ Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012
Yeah, I know. I like Blue and Urnam, I just like Flighty better. I've had some pretty nice conversations with Urnam, we're kinda friends but not best friends. I mean the fans, Urnam's, Blue's, and Flightys fans have gotten into fights on YouTube and they were ugly xD
mechanicalmasochist Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I hate when my fans fight I remember once someone started a fight about my scourge will not bow video, being worse/better than silverthepuppy's , thing is I actually followed silverthepuppy for a long time and new her on an account before you tube even drew leafe as a request once on a site called baltosource. long before I joined you tube.

and imo her animations are a lot more dynamic than mine anyway :/

never seen any over other animators though, blue is quite nice from when I've spoke to her and I love Urnam's work to bits and she is very nice too soo...
if I ever caught anyone fighting I'd probably tell them to stop :I
