(Drew this for DeviantArt, but the message applies for all online art communities)
Whenever you try really hard with your art and NO ONE online gives a fuck.
You're getting emotional because you just can't figure out what you're doing wrong. You turn to your friend, who barely even knows what DeviantArt is and ask him what the fuck is WRONG with you, what did you do to make everyone hate you???
They don't really know what to say because they're confused as to why you care about what a bunch of faceless losers online think, while he himself, sees you as not only a KICKASS artist but an awesome friend.
On the outside looking in, it all seems very unnecessary. Perhaps we should try to take a step back and look at ourselves through the eyes of our loved ones. Maybe then we could see the true beauty that we blind ourselves from.
(Was feeling down about my art yesterday, turned on Spongebob, paused it to go to the can, noticed the still frame when I got back, reminded me of a conversation I had just had with my boyfriend, drew it.)
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR ANY & EVERY FAVE! <3
