I have a question ,why do people even ship jeaneren? As much as i know the only guy he had an emotional intercourse with was marco and the one he truly love is a girl so....I just don't get when it's even started,2 months ago I did even saw that ship
Anonymous

[I’m sorry but this’ll be a bit lengthy.]

While I’m no advocate to this ship, I can only explain to you why I enjoy it. It’s an alluring love-hate relationship which was, in my opinion, initiated by the death of Marco. Without Marco in his life, Jean could then be able to branch out socially and therefore be able to focus on other people such as Eren (probably as far as Armin if you like that sort of thing). Even though it doesn’t seem possible at first glance, seeing as though they originally hated each other’s guts; Jean and Eren are actually so alike that it just seems inevitable they’d get together romantically. I believe the only reason they hate each other is because they are so similar. When something annoys you, it’s often because you can likely relate to it in some way which is what you hate about yourself.

But they balance each other out: they’re both very outspoken, are natural leaders, they’re protective of their loved ones (although Jean’s not about to announce that publicly unless it makes him look good), they both have quick tempers, are impulsive and very emotional.

Eren is very forward thinking while Jean has more internal struggles but when they interact it’s like the flaws of each become very potent which I find fascinating. Eren found Jean’s harsh honestly to be disagreeable at first until Jean changed his outlook on life after Marco’s death and joined the Scouting Legion; the trait then became more admirable. Jean hated Eren’s obsession with titans until he realised this was actually very motivating for  morale and would bring some sort of justice to the death of his best friend. So once all that misunderstanding bogus is out of the way, they are free to embrace each other but still often run into small dumb arguments.

But Anon, if you don’t care for or like JeanEren, you can leave it well alone. No one will mind unless you complain about it. Exhibit A is in the following paragraph.

JeanMarco is a thing, yes. I don’t understand that ship much at all, seeing as though Jean and Marco were best friends before [insert bad dead Marco Bodt joke here] and in my personal experience, trying to hook up with your best friend isn’t all that successful. Especially when they’re kinda completely dead. That doesn’t mean it’s impossible, however.

That girl has a name, yo. Mikasa and she’s the baddest bitch besides Annie and Ymir. I honestly don’t blame Jean for falling for her and her silky hair. Who the hell wouldn’t. The only thing with that though is it’s canon. I can see why you’d get confused. But shipping goes beyond canon because that’s what people analyse and enjoy. It also stems from a person’s individual tastes - like me personally, I love love-hate relationships because they’re very exciting and renewable. Other people ship because they can relate to the characters and maybe that person fancies putting themselves in that character’s shoes and ships them with another character they think they might personally be compatible with. Does that make sense? Or maybe they ship two characters because it just makes sense to them compatibility-wise (as well as astrology-wise (in this case, Jean and Eren are both under the Aries sign which works fairly well together)). Or two characters’ interactions with each other are highly suggestive in terms of implied romantic interest. The list goes on. If it fits it ships, basically.

I wouldn’t say JeanEren became a thing recently. It might have become more popular recently but surely - since the SnK manga started in 2009 - the ship has lasted way longer than when you discovered it.

AHH THE ENDING IS SO PERF WHYYYYYY <3 thank you so much, btw. i know that i had a lengthy request, and i'm sorry if it was too much o.o BUT ANYWAY, YOU ARE PERFECT THAT WAS PERFECT EVERYTHING IS PERFECT

O man I’m super glad you like it. I’m so sorry it took so long.. I just really hate sketching but it’s a necessary evil that must be done or everything goes to hell. There are some artists that can just draw right then and there with out sketching and it’s beautiful but not me no I can’t do that and I don’t think I ever will.

And no shh it’s not your fault. I sorta got carried away, plus my request info page sorta prompted you to get a little detailed.

I’LL GET TO YOUR OTHER REQUEST SOON. I JUST NEED TO LOOK AT AI’S FACE LONG ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND WHAT HE MIGHT LOOK LIKE TEN YEARS TO COME. Or whatever number idk

request? :3 / kou x nitori in which kou REALLY ships nitorin, so they hang out sometimes and she advises him on ways to win her onii-chan's heart. i imagine them to do this in a gossipy, girly, slumber party type of fashion where they're in their pjs, etc. i'm not sure if that's specific enough, but I thought that i'd share my idea x)

I’ll get to your second request shortly. This needed to be posted first otherwise it would take a million more years before you even see this, probably.

Edit: THOSE ARE GAYJS THAT GOU FORCED AI TO WEAR, BTW, IN CASE YOU COULDN’T TELL.

Not only did I change my icon (finally something I drew wow took me long enough), but THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT:

I made an ask blog to reduce clutter from this blog because, based on my fluctuating follower count, not many people seem to appreciate walls of text and I don’t blame them. It’s not very pretty (insert dumb SnK joke here).

So in this ask blog, if anyone has whatever to tell me or they want to show me something, they can go there and click the ask button or go to the drop-down menu and click Submit. I will also include textual updates or whatever is on my mind, I guess. It’s basically a Twitter account, only less Twittery. Feel free to follow it to keep (sort of) up to date with what I’m doing as an artist.

I still accept requests on this blog, however, and the ask button is still fully functional. Please do not message me something silly and irrelevant on this blog, although you are very pretty and I appreciate the sentiment if you have one.

Also, thank you deadfreckledboys for inspiring me to do this. I hope it works out..

I think an ask blog could work. And you could put a link to it in your sidebar so its easily accessible?

You could reply to asks privately and put anons and replies under readmores so they don’t take up as much space?? I totally get what you mean though.

You know. I do the absolute shittiest job of responding to people on this website. I wish there was a way I could answer Asks and respond to replies on posts in like…idk a separate thing away from my posts so I don’t spam people’s dashes nor clutter my blog with wALLLS OF TEXT? If that makes sense. It’s 1am and I’m tired af. 4 hours of sleep last night getting line art finished - obsessively, mind you.

I’m super close to finishing this request though and I’m super happy about this.

Okay so first off; I’m no where near what’s generally considered ‘professional’ but I’ve decided I wanted (more like need) to do paid commissions because, as I’ve reiterated several times before, I’m poor and have no job and ergo need money.

I’ll make another post later that details a better looking commission post thing but for now, this will be my outline and a heads-up for later.

  1. I’m turning off the Anonymous feature to asks for the time being so I can avoid further anon requests.
  2. Paid commissions, as mentioned above, will start immediately after Yukine-tan's request.
  3. Requests that have already been made and are listed on the Commission Queue page will be kept free because I think it’s rather UNFAIR if I just SUDDENLY ASK FOR MONEY when, at the time those INNOCENT BYSTANDERS made those requests, I wasn’t asking for anything.
  4. Also, five slots will be open for people who are willing to pay me for a drawing. The requests that are in queue are considered side projects.

As for the commissions themselves, I was thinking:

B/W line art usually takes me a few hours to finish, coloured line art might take a day, usually less. B/W comics usually take me a week, give or take. Colour comics take me about a week and a half, depending on how detailed the request is and if they want more than 5 pages completed. Note that it’s mostly the sketching that really slows me down, plus I like everything to be perfect to my own standards.

I would like to send these physically out to Requesters but since I’m working on fumes here (money-wise), I will have to submit the request digitally, depending on how the Requester wants it (email and/or on tumblr, I guess?). Unless maybe the Requester is willing to pay extra for some neato glossy pro paper for portraits and maybe bristol paper for comics (not too sure how the printing process will work with that but again, this is only an outline)?

Does that sound fair at all? I mean, I’m pretty sure that’s the general consensus with other artists who sell their work. I would like some advice on how to do this without being a total bellend.

*Requester can discuss with me via email on how long (roughly) they want their comic to be. Comic pacing might be rushed if the request is heavy with details and confined within 5 pages minimum.
