= Please read all of this. This is important =
This is something I've been meaning to say for a while now, Mainly because it's such a important topic I need to discuss with all of you.
If you're familiar with the youtuber Jaiden Animations, then at first glance my profile might look alot like her. I've been bothered alot, Saying that I look like her, and I've been picked on, Being called a 'Copy' And a 'Clone' And all that sort of stuff...Alot of you have said that to me, And It hurts my feelings more then you could ever imagine.
Yes, My character has a fluff of hair on her head, and yes, I do animations and love video games, But that doesn't mean I'm Jaiden. I've had this character for a while, even before I knew who Jaiden was. Way before. My friend actually helped me come up with her, and I'm not sure if she knew who Jaiden was at the time, But I didn't.
Just because I do animations, have a character with brown floofy hair, And make little shorts, Doesn't mean I'm a copy. Think about it like this: If a scratcher draws cats, does that mean they are a copy? No. If a scratcher has a avatar that looks like Mario,and makes fan Nintendo games, Does it mean they are a copy? No. If someone animates a character with hair in a Jaiden style, Does it mean they are a copy? No.
I'm done with being accused of being a copy. So much so, I've actually tried to delete my account Too many times. When I started my scratch journey, I was on a roleplaying account. But I wanted more then anything to use my own character and make my own animations. When people started noticing me, It was amazing. But being accused of copying, has made my scratch journey a nightmere. When I created my account, I was ready to be myself. To make my own animations. To use my character. But many of you didn't like that.
But when you look at my style compared to hers, They are very different. Like in the eyes and ears, But still...
I know that Jaiden is a amazing person, and far more better then I am. But I would never copy her. If It makes you feel better, I can change my character. I can wipe my slate clean, restart everything, Change myself just so all of you are pleased. But I'm sick of doing that. I've done it too many times. I'm ready to be myself. I'm not a copy. I'm not a clone. I'm myself. And that's what I want to be.
But is the only reason why I'm Semi-Famous is that I look like Jaiden???
