Is it just me, or is this website not that fun anymore?
I mean, the people here are nice and all, but I see no desire to log in anymore. I've had a good year and a bit here, but I think that was all I ever needed. I only started an account on this website because my friends were on here, and I started to enjoy it. I made some good memories here. My art started to get more and more noticed. I enjoyed the constructive criticism I received. I enjoyed knowing that my art was appreciated. Now, it seems that my art has taken the backseat in my life.
This is my last school year before High School. I've had more important things to focus on than drawing. Don't get me wrong, I still love to draw. I just haven't had much free time to draw. With important tests, assignments, essays and more, I don't get around to art anymore. With all of the studying going on right now (I'm supposed to be studying but instead I'm writing this), I haven't had the time to draw.
Also, I seem to have lost the accomplished feeling I get from art. Seeing my friends posting their art on Instagram makes me feel like my art isn't as great. Seeing my friends sit down during lunch break, doodling, and making some pretty great art, it just makes me feel like I'm not as artistically inclined as they are (also, I'm saying 'them
' because I don't want to rule out a certain person). Then there is all the talk about art supplies. I use Artist Mind markers (which are fake Copics I bought at Michael's because they were $5.00 cheaper), and I usually get told that my art isn't as good because I use 'fake' markers. It hurts, y'know.
Also, I've been more invested in writing. I love to write, and I recently started reading a book series that urges me to write (it's the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Mass). I'm over on Wattpad, so check me out!
Just so all of the people that need to know this information know, I will be sending this to my friends who may not read this at first.
Even though I am pretty much done with this website, you can still check me out on Instagram and Wattpad!
