well, one thing i can say about myself has to do with that first, sort of aggressive & scary little checkbox (note absence of "check") in the box above me. AM I AN ARTIST?!! yes yes, i understand. I think. I'm supposed to check that box with a fervent, self-affirming "click!" and pronounce, before myself and the world, that By God, Yes. Yes, indeed. I AM AN ARTIST. hear me roar.
rarwrrl.
honestly, I WISH I had the capacity to do ANY of that. But then I would have to be a different person all together. I guess I just feel weird making such an objective statement at all, let alone one about myself.
when asked if I'm an artist, i usually begin w/ some fun, guttural disgruntled noises before just saying "i do art…if that's what you mean/ does that answer your question/may i go now please."
Sorry. this is all getting very long & verging on preachy; the very worst thing anyone could ever be. blech. So! wrapping-up:
My hat's off to those of you who bravely check "yes. I am an artist. a very good one in fact. how kind of you to ask." What i wanted to say ( in this dissertation that, incredibly, I STILL somehow seem to be writing) is that it doesn't feel self-defeatist, or self-deprecating, when i admit to having no clue whether i've got an official "artist" stamp permanently branded into some area of my backside or mee bottom, or any equally discreet part of my body that's clearly visible to literally every other single sighted human person, except, that-is, for me. ...sort-of like having skme slia sign on your back that reads, simply: "kick me."
only not even sort-of like that. at-all,
but my point! my point this! this question, "are you an artist?" feels fishy.... and loaded. a loaded fish pistol blitzkrieg line of inquiry posing as a breezy tralala blah of casual curiosity. it intimidates me, here it just feels honest. For now, anyway. And I can't say i hope that doesn't change.
You made it!! The End.

I think this is literally, definitively, basically verbatim the EXACT thing i wanted someone to tell-me. I do believe that YOU, shining-black-swaddled-4pawed-trickster- (get-it? ...ha.) have finally written what is hands-down the perfect comment to ever grace this weird, dodgy comment section here on deviantart.
Seriously though: Thank you for saying that sweetie:) and for ALL of your encouragement. It means so much- and it sure beats a llama badge,
And! every death-rattled ...
"thx for fav..."
ever written ever (even all the ones typed in utter sincerity- bc its simply no excuse for artist-peoples running rampant with so much not-at-all-artistic-redundancy; mixit up people! Ooh,Sorry- thats just my opinion...
More importantly, i think i've gotten slightly off-track here...seriously This NEVER happens...:)
Sorry btw for this epic hullabaloo of my thankyous & personal-opinions i'm currently hurling at you- maybe the whole 'thx...' Plus some disconcertingly cryptic & supercreepy grinning head of a tiny emoji would have been better...
I seriously don't know, bc i'm over 30, and after that- no one will tell u anything...
But really; thank you, obsidiancladfox for saying something so uniquely thoughtful & sweet & encouraging:) made my day. i'm now (finally) off to check out all YOur newest awe-inspiring creations.
Phew! Done&done. Bye for now,

Well I am proud to be the courier of those words! I try to keep my praise original and inspiring to the recipient. Repeating the same "Nice pic", "Good art" and so forth isn't healthy for my creative side, and I am an appreciator of originality, or what little there is in this world! Originality that you portray in your art and your expressed gratitude for my encouragements. So I appreciate your long and thought out reply more that you would think. (: Keep it up, and as always I look forward to seeing more of your fantastic art in approximately six months. I'll be waiting, but don't rush. ;)

hi Levi!
First off, happy belated 18th birthday! second, thanks so much for taking the time to look at my art, and i'm so glad you like it :) After stalking you a bit, (sorry?) I can tell that you're an old soul; much, much wiser than your 18 years, and so i feel extra-flattered that you like my work. Good luck with your music and your art Levi; your talent and sense of self already surpasses your age by a long shot- you're gonna be something special, i can tell, so good luck darlin :) and thanks again!

Wow thank you so much! (: Your art is fantastic. You're quite the art-doer! (As you can't possibly be referred to as an artist without making disgruntled noises!) I will continue to enjoy your artwork as it gets posted, and I appreciate the follow. (: I am rather intrigued as to why you think my soul has aged faster than my physical counterparts. Only one person has told me I have an old soul before, and she knows me like a book she's read a hundred times. 
Thank you again, both for the birthday wish and the kind words. Cheers (:
