▲🌱I am Not my Characters by Uluri

Hello everyone and good morning,
It's time to have a bit of a talk with you all, since this isn't something I've talked about for a while now. Buckle up and get a comfy seat, alright? I'll highlight the really important parts if you don't like reading a bunch.

Today I want to talk about myself and my relationship to my characters with the main point being that I, the artist, am not my characters. I have my characters interact directly with you all very often, and almost constantly, so I very much understand where confusion can come from. Right now, I am talking to you as the artist known as Uluri, and not a character. I do try my best to make sure I am rather separate from my OCs, especially when I comment or write in my descriptions of artwork by writing which character is talking or if it is myself. My content is in a constant state of Role Playing in other words.

Artist: When I am talking as myself. (Text often not colored, but is Light orange if Uluri is also talking as a Character)
Uluri: When I am talking as the Character Uluri in descriptions and comments.(Text often colored a darker orange)
Sin: When I am Talking as the Character Sin in descriptions and comments.(text often colored a bleh purple)
etc etc etc


I'm going to dive a little bit further, because I feel like I will leave a lot of questions with just that. Sin is not my Persona. Sin is VERY HEAVILY Role played. I will NEVER talk to you as Artist through Sin. Ever. This character has personality and interests that grate against my own in a way that gives me the shivers. If I were to say something through him, it would always have a different feeling than if I said it through myself. Uluri is my Persona, however Uluri is still a character. I will talk to you in artwork as the Artist through Uluri because I find it difficult to talk with only text, but keep in mind that I am not a Slime Transforming Fox Monster that lives in a Vortex Apartment of Mystery and Magic who bathes in honey. 

There's something else on my mind relating to this as well, and that is vent art, but I am not sure how to talk about it. So... Cliffhanger on this conversation.

#WhenYouStealYourOwnIdentity

If you have questions, ask please. I want to be able to answer them. I really don't want to keep people confused. (Although I will probably be slow on responses. It took me 3 days to write this Journal)

    Thanks for this. I should probably write a similar doc when it gets into cosplay/fursuit season again.

    Interesting, do people get confused with this or are you just putting it out to make sure everything is understood?

      People do indeed get confused with this more often than you would think. So far I've had to make a journal about this about every two years when it starts to get bad.
