Im very flattered and honored to have received a DD, so thank you again everyone! I really wasn't expecting it or even thinking I would ever get one (I kind of forgot it was a thing tbh), but I'm glad that illustration got it. It really embodies all the love I have for Mraculous Ladybug and I'm glad people got to appreciate the piece and maybe even check out the show (which is absolutely adorable and the animation to die for, go watch!)
But I'll also take the opportunity to say that the most amazing thing you can do in your life is to create something new and inspire others. Whether it's through art or other means, perhaps maybe even through your personality and your actions, there is nothing more rewarding than to know you have ignited someone's inner flame. For me art is a hobby and I make it a policy of mine to always draw with my heart and my feelings without expecting any kind of response in return. I don't strive for more notes, followers/watchers, more attention. I draw, then let the art flow out into the world, and hope it can inspire someone else to go and create something of their own. So far in my career of posting art online nothing has made me more happy than to receive kind messages from people telling me my art has had an impact on them, or inspired them to keep drawing and get better.
At the end of the day, it also isn't a matter of skill or for how long you've been drawing, or how you compare to this or that artist. What will matter is that you created something with love, that you poured your feelings out on a canvas. People will pick up on that. What is made with love appeals to the heart, and people will appreciate what you do, regardless of the fact you're not as experienced as that one artist thats always on the front page or that gets so much more attention than you.
So thank you again, carry on, and cheers for future beautiful creations!
