Tribute to my best friend. You were always there for me, through sunshine and rain. When my dysfunctional family was crumbling down, when I was bullied in school, when the entire world seemed so bleak, you wagged your tail and smiled at me. And suddenly everything was going to be okay. 

We dug giant holes in the backyard, filled it with water, jumped in and covered ourselves in mud. The best days were when we got to go to your favorite lake. You really loved to roll in duck poop and dead fish. I held you in my lap even when you smelled like rotten fish. I had to shampoo you twice and it was all so much fun. 

With each divorce and remarriage, we had to move and give you away when the new place didn't allow dogs. But somehow you always made it back to me. When emotional trauma gave me amnesia for one year, I couldn't remember the people in my life but I remember you. If my mom had gone through with the suicide, I would have been okay because I had you. 

I grew up and you grew old. Now I'm old enough to be okay on my own, and it was thanks to you. I'll always miss you. Thank you for the 17 years of unconditional love.

This made me cry. I'm kind of already crying from something else, but this... I just love this so, so much. I wish I could know you better, you seem like such a wonderful person. I've been following you for a while, it just takes me a while to see your art sometimes because I forget all about dA for long periods of time if I don't leave it open in a tab... :lol:

Your art is beautiful, Wenqing. I hope the art I create touches people the way yours does, someday.

She's not going to reply.
She never does.

She gives no fucks about her viewers, dude.

I'm telling you to check out :iconnaimane: if you want someone who cares.

I'm serious--you really give a damn. This girl is not the artist for you to poor your heart out to. XD I'm dead serious.

Listen to my words... find an artist who cares. You are a super amazing person. You are so fucking cool. Can we be friends?

You are insanely rude and insensitive.
Just because a person can't respond to her hundreds of thousands of comments doesn't mean they're stuck up or don't care.
The description alone should tell you this girl has a lot of day to day struggles and real life problems, just like any of us.
She's super popular.
She has a life outside of dA, but still chooses to grace the world with her art.
Be grateful she does that much.
I myself have been getting more popular and find it harder and harder to reply to the comments that flood my inbox.
We have lives outside of the internet.
We have real problems.
We have scars to deal with and we work to prevent new ones from happening.
We're people.
We aren't her, we don't know how much she has or what she sees.
Most people who don't reply do at least read their comments, i know this because i watch a lot of super popular artists that have admitted they read but don't have time to reply to SO MANY comments and so much love.
Nobody appreciates people who don't even know them, being a raging asshat on their behalf.
Try actually thinking before saying something so shitty to/about someone you don't even know.
She also has tons of other accounts and ways of keeping her watchers updated.
If she didn't care, she wouldn't clue anyone in.
Maybe it's time to exercise some empathy.

It's a real bitch who doesn't give a fuck about her audience yet postures as if to give a shit.
eriume Featured By Owner Edited Feb 9, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I can't believe you guys are attacking her for not replying to comments. This post alone has 600 comments, I imagine that her inbox is probably filled with 1,000s of notifications both from Notes people send her plus notifications of comments, journals etc.. It takes a really long time to individually respond to each of these comments. There would be absolutely no point in copying and pasting a "Thank You." into every reply box. Honestly at that point it's better just to leave it. She can't write individualized responses either.
You do know she's going to therapy right? She has a lot of things outside of deviantart that she has to spend time on. Artists are not under any obligation to respond to comments. Also, deviantart is a huge platform so it's difficult to respond to all the comments she gets. She does communicate with her fans when she can - ex Facebook, Tumblr.
ZaquiaStorm Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2017  Student Digital Artist
I wouldn't attack her for not responding to comments. Of course she gets quite a lot of comments and she would not be able to respond to every single one. To expect her to take time to respond to every single message would be ridiculous because then she would have no time to do the work that we all enjoy. I love her work and I've commented on many of her images and even sent her Notes.

I had no idea she's going to therapy because I've taken multiple extended breaks from dA and I don't see all of her status updates. I do know, also, that she works with multiple different platforms, not JUST deviantART, to include Tumblr and Facebook, both of which I'm sure end up flooded with notifications.

I wonder how many people she responds to? Does she respond to any at all, at this point? I've been following her since before she got huge, eriume, and she has NEVER responded to me. Ever.
eriume Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You know some artists don't respond to any comments because they think it might be unfair to the rest of the people who commented. 
Anyways one thing you ultimately need to understand is the fact that she posts so many tutorials, opened a youtube account and tries to post speedpaints. If she was the type of person, to really ignore and not appreciate supporters, she wouldn't take the time to do those things for us. 
We can just appreciate the fact that she still posts her artwork and sometimes gives us tutorials right? She doesn't have to respond to any comments because I know she's reading them when she can. :) 
MissGnomophobe Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, yeah. I know. It's really bothersome!!!! God, I just wish she would stop being a phony, ZaquiaStorm! :nods:

She totally postures, too. :P She does.

Uhmmm... hey there--who are you? :?
ZaquiaStorm Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2017  Student Digital Artist
Sigh... I did watch the artist you recommended! I watched another new artist, too. Maybe one who might reply to my comments every once in a while, who knows? xD

So, hi... You could call me Ally... Who are you? :B
MissGnomophobe Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You can call me Birdose. :) Me? I'm a normal girl who loves to do normal things. UwU
Why do you ask?

Why? Because you asked, of course. d:

Define "normal". :la:

That's very sweet, thanks! But you also gotta think about that Yuumei has like 100 times the amount of watchers and replying to such a massive number of comments is impossible without spending an insane amount of hours on it. Heck, even I'm getting lazy with it lately, but doesn't mean I don't care about the comments and I'm pretty sure same thing applies to Yuumei.
MissGnomophobe Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmmmm? How did you know this comment existed? LOL! ._.

What if I told you that she really does not give a damn about her fans though? She seriously does not. :/
Naimane Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm a stalker. Nah but you get a notification if someone mentions you in the comments haha, that's how

Pretty sure she does, just gets too many comments
MissGnomophobe Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Okay, cool! You're the, girl! :nods: :heart: :heart: :heart:

Okay whatever! I don't even care--I just want to be pals with you. Really badly. 8) Wanna be chums? :D

I feel like your dog lived so long (17 years!! Amazing for a dog) because he knew you needed him to be by your side, so he overcame his own species limits and lived the more he could to be with you. It seems you had a really really hard time in your life but let me tell you this, your dog was definetely a shield and a bless that life gave you to make it through. Even in the hardest time, you have been blessed somehow and this is something nothing will be able to deny. Take care of you, that friend of yours is still smiling at you.  
Goldenfire219 Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2017
Such a beautiful way to look at it... I had a cat that my parents got a few years before I was born. He always slept next to me and was always near me. It was as if he was watching over me and he died not that long ago. Sometimes i see him in dreams and when I'm doing something difficult or scary, i can feel him brushing up against me like he used to do. I know he's still with me no matter what. ~Love you, Dusty:)~
ladybakura92 Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks for sharing your story, that's so touching and I'm sure that's true, they are still with us somehow.

Oh my gosh I actually started crying after reading your words I'm so sorry you had to lose such a good friend. Your pup was lucky to have you just as you were lucky to have him/her.
