I'm sorry for everything I've done even if I haven't even done some of them . I apologize if I ever was an idol to you because you feel extremely deceived and I didn't mean to intend any of that. I'm very sorry for that, I never intended to be an inspiration to anybody and that's what pulled me under. Imagine telling your friend you have the Lamborghini (you dont actually have one but if you do, gg), to continue to impress that friend you continuously have to lie to stall them from your imaginary car (i honestly dont know where i was going there but whateverr).
THe point is, when I referenced from other artists the first time, people praised me and I felt good so it kinda was like (im not sure how to explain it) but like people actually liked me for once I guess??? But yeah, I guess it was kinda like "oh i should keep doing this" (i was very umm not sure how to say it but not happy with my own art at the time?? and i had no idea hwo to develop a style) and I didn't really think about it so I used styles of other artists which gave off the impression of tracing (some of them referenced but not traced) sta.sh/228po2e8x0cb (all sketches of icons before pixeling )
I'm sorry to all the artists I referenced from;; it was a mistake that i didn't realize until a hoard of people had to tell me
i want to say I did it mostly out of inspiration and it wasn't out of spite or anythign negative
sorry this apology is rachet im not even sure how to apolygize but if guys can find it in your heart to forgive me you can? if you don't want to, then you dont have to, i honestly dont mind i would be hard to forgive myself too ;o;
also please stop attacking citybirds they were only try to defend me and it's no reason to attack them
