Hey guys! It's been a while since I wrote a decent journal here that was not plugging or advertising something
Something possessed me today to browse through my Gallery and... well, I was embarrassed by what I found.
I mean I think I've improved a good amount over the last few years, so it's unavoidable to notice many *many* mistakes on the older pictures I have on display here. The older the images, the more mistakes I found ):
Aslo I have no idea what made me think that little drawings that took me little time to complete belonged anywhere other than in my scraps X____x.
So I decided to scrap a good amount of my gallery.
As for the older things that I already scrapped a few years ago, I went through those and put another good amount in storage. You can still see some stuff from 2004 if you're up to it, though! xD
On the bright side of things, I feel I've improved so much! I give what i draw a lot more thought now and I care about the quality of what i make a lot more too, so when i see older things that I didn't put much thought/effort into and I still thought they were *so* good and felt proud of them... it embarrasses me, because that's not who I am anymore.
I honestly felt I was the shit a few years ago, haha, and that I *deserved* pageviews and praise and crap. Now I just care about improving and getting better because it's my job and I want to do a good job! And I also want that, if people are going to praise me, they do it because its something I *really* out a lot of love into.
I don't post here as much, because I honestly don't feel the necessity to; back in the day I had many friend here and I loved sharing my art with them, then I started liking the praise and the pageviews and all that stuff, and at some point I decided it wasn't doing me any favor so I left dA, only to return when I craved the attention again and I needed money and a place to advertise my commissions.
I still sketch and doodle stuff when I have the time, and post previews an WIPS and things, but I usually do so now in the forums I go to, on twitter and on Facebook, sometimes on Tumblr too, where I feel I can have a more... uhm... closer interaction with the people looking at my things I guess?
I think I should only post things I'm really proud of over here, that's why I haven't been posting much this year (that and most of what I've done is work-related!).
Anyway... Just felt like sharing this.
I'm sorry for rambling too much
Thanks for reading!
