Thank you all!
Luna, thank you. Art is the way I express myself, and is frankly the only way I know how. Writing books is just a pastime for me, while art is my hobby and my job (I would love to be a working, professional artist). I like to portray stories through my artwork, and sometimes I feel like my skill isn't high enough to do that. Your response really made me feel better, thank you.
And the same to Ammy! I really appreciate it.
And to MangoGirl, thanks so much. People who see my work usually do say things like this, but when people I know disregard it as "normal" in the sense that they should just be like, "Ok, it's good" with no compliments beyond that, I feel down. When they say that, it sounds bland like they think I can do better or something. Also, it annoys me when people walk up to me (namely Wesley2004) and say, "Oh, drawing looks SOOO easy, bet I can do it". You can imagine the look on my face when they try, because it has taken years of daily hard work for me to reach this point. And I am so glad you have decided to draw! If you can, please post your artwork. Its really fun seeing others' work. Also, you are always welcome to ask for art advice, all of you! ;3
Thanks a lot, Queeny. I feel like you are so much better than me and you are younger, so I feel like I shoulda started years ago instead of 2... thank you for helping me feel better as well! <3
