My best friends call me 'The Ryu of Drawing' because I've dedicated my life to it and is determined to get better at every turn. I'm not the greatest artist in the world by far, never was- never will be, and I don't intend to neither. Nonetheless, I am proud of where I stand. I don't care if people don't like who, what, and how I draw whatever nor am I here to be compared or compete with anyone neither. Seriously, I've no concern if I am or (most likely) am not popular in the world of art. Of course, you've never heard of me- I like it like that really. Yeah, my art may "seem familiar" to you but I still remain anonymous to the majority. That's perfect because that's one of the numerous reasons why I love my sobriquet name, CylenX (Silence).
I don't expect everyone to like my art work. To me, that's what I call normal and pretty much well balanced to understand that there are probably some people in this world who actually think that I have the worst drawing skill ever while others think the opposite. A well descriptive constructive critisism is more welcomed than a compliment. I always say, "Compliments are very bad for your ego's health... because a simple critisism can hurt your feelings..." Most artists can't even handle a friendly critique from their fans without being butthurt. To me, that's what I call a garbage ass artist... Seriously.
I learned on my own to draw and didn't attend any schools for it. My style of art I developed is pretty unique: people say it's anime, but with a twist to it. So I call my style 'Jackpanime' because of that. It's my own style I love and take pride in. I respect and admire all forms of art people have done because I have had my hands on experience with some styles myself at one point or another. So no matter how greater or less skilled a person may be in the world of art, they have played some sort of inspirational part in my life that helped me better myself and I highly respect them. Not like a majority of these so-called "popular" artists who think high and mighty of themselves cuz they think they're better skilled or whatever their reason may be. That's not a true artist if you ask me. No one is a perfect artist what so ever. One with a lot of skill can learn from another who have just started drawing in some way. What you lack in something could be what another artist (regardless of skill) could teach and/or inspire you.
I thank GOD 1st for blessing me with this skill and I thank you all (the artists, writers, and photograhphers) for showing such enthusiasm and skill in art and creativity. Much luv and respect to you all.
