I don't have this problem since my art isn't that good
But I do sometimes try to become friends with better artists just like you <'3;; not for art, but because I look up to you people good artists and like I want to get to know you people, and maybe ask for advice on how to improve!
I think you can judge on the way they talk and act what people want to be friends with you for!

I get nervous about that stuff too but I guess you just chat with people and slowly figure out who is using you and who isn't.
I find if they take the time to chat with you and read your journals and drop you friendly comments from time to time they're probly the ones who won't be using you for art. Just people who want to get to know you better :)

Just because you know someone doesn't mean you have to let them use you for art. Just be careful and watch how the person acts and reacts. And remember it's ok to say "no" if you don't want to do something.

I don't use people, it's not right. To me everyone should be nice and friendly. And that's what my friends call me. If you want be friends, just send me a note and I'll give you my Skype if you want it. ^^ I hope to be good friends

I don't use people for their art. With most artists I follow, I usually wait a bit before I go and talk to them. Or maybe they make a post listing their Skype information, and I go and talk to them. Stuff like that. I don't use people for their art. If there's ever something I need help with, I ask. If they say no, then that's fine.

I don't. I'm afraid some of my watchers will use me, but I don't see any evidence that they will. If they force me to do some for them all of the sudden, I'll just ignore them.

I say it depends on the people you want to talk to. For me it would be better to get to know them first through notes. That why they get to know you and you get to know them better, it will take time, you don't want to rush this, and after awhile when you DO truly trust them is when you can add them to skype or whatever that way you can talk to each other more and now your even closer, but you also got to look out for signs that will tell you if they only like you for you, or your art, that works better when your still getting to know them

I accept that some people who watch me only watch me for the pixels I make, but it won't stop me from trying my hardest to become friends with people.

Well, there are a multitude of ways to find out about how a perosn will treat you, but the easiest is to see how they respond to things and to people.

Hello I'm a new person! I can't use you for art because I'm dirt poor! XDDD

Anyways I really enjoy your art and I'm also an RP person guy thing XD
