God, I am so happy I can do all the writing and art of both my novel and comic myself. I've worked my ass off for over 15 years to be able to solo everything myself, so threads like those give me the heebie-jeebies honestly. But the amount of DMs I get from people who want to collaborate...pffff. They're never interested in my own work, but low and behold they see my art and suddenly want to collaborate. Yeah no, my hands are full.
What makes me want to punch walls is especially writers who think making a comic is magic, and all they get to do it sit back and 'write' the script. Then you look at the comic where they managed to find an artist for, and while I find often the art lovely, the writing is just a bit of a cringe really. And often its not even paid, now that really sends me orbiting.
Now look, if its an artist who is actually looking for help as you cannot always solo everything yourself, I mean okay that's perfectly cool. You delegate, I applaud you for it. But often I find the people asking for collabs to be entirely unaware of how to be a good creative partner and more often than not lacking in their own department.
Gosh I sound salty here...hahaha. I rather not open my can of bad experiences but I guess they did spill a little. XD
EDIT: Also save me from the people that comment under my art posted in topics too asking to collab. XD
