Ah, thank you for the kind words. I probably should not have taken posted that comment at all, but at the time I felt like if I didn’t reply, it would be on my mind and bother me. lol (I’ll probably delete it later. No use leaving negative things on my blog I think.) Also if you understand people, then you know people who bother leaving comments like that are already in their own hell, they don’t need people being angry at them. so it doesn’t really upset me… More like it was uncanny because I felt like I was getting a message from the universe. (Here’s where my weirdness comes though…)
It’s actually a very good thing I received that comment. It was a shock and it made me think…. That comment was really coming from my own head. Just because someone else says it, why does it shock us more, or hurt us more? Lately I’ve been struggling with the thought that.. maybe that I’m not cut out to become the type of artist I want to be in terms of my intellect and work ethic. And then that comment came just at the “right” time. I feel like it’s a message or a sign. Like the universe is saying…”either give your all or don’t bother drawing at all!” I always do my best, but sometimes you hold yourself back with fear and the results are not impressive. I think all you artists know what I’m talking about.
Anyway sorry just rambling! And I want to prioritize feeling good when I draw over anything else, but also want to draw really well and I hope I can make art that makes people happy too.
