Conclusions, conceptions, resolutions...

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 31, 2010, 7:22 PM

Hello, people! =)

I’ve been some time away, as always.
I was spending some time in brazilian beaches and now I’m on the southern capital, planning my next chaotic decision. No more China for me. One year was more than enough to change all my stupid convictions and purposes.
Oh, Big Brother lives.

But I don’t really think people are interested in this kind of things here, on dA. Actually, not only here, but everywhere. This is the Just Dance Era after all. So let’s change the subject.
I’ve been working on so many new drawings, but only one or two will be posted here. I’m going through those “my art sucks, my gallery sucks, my style sucks, it’s all good for nothing trash” moments.
But it’s true. I think I’m becoming… stupider. o.ô
Maybe  I’ll create a blog to post the uncountable trash things I work on but never finish (because I realize it’s awful). But definitely I won’t be filling this gallery with more trash. u.u

Sorry for those who were left without a reply. My nomad life is not allowing me too much time for deviant. Right now I have 11.000 devwatch messages, 2.400 feedback msgs and some notes. I guess it’s gonna be a looong night. U_U
And from now on I’ll surely be more active on dA.
I’ll just be away in September, when I’m relocating again. *o*
(Yes, I’m mad.)

Hehehe. So you spent some time in China? I'm finding out that what one thinks about the experience really depends on what part of the world one hails from. I'm going on my second year, and yes, preconceptions quickly disappear. Some things I like, other things I really, really, don't like, but, when all is said and done, I'm still here...for now.

Would love to hear your observations. Btw, I really enjoyed looking through your work. Grow, create, and have fun. :D

Your drawings are splendid ! By the way, I finished the Silmarilion a few time ago^^
Could you draw Maedhros saved by Fingon, or perhaps Aredhel and her son Maeglin when they are fleeing the anger of Eol ? Thanks :)

Actually, you may think people aren't interested in your experiences in places like China..But I would appreciate you expanding on your experience if you ever get the time.

Thank you kindly in advance.

Awww sweetie, don't feel like that! We all go through such silly stages when we think all we do sucks and is pointless, it's part of life, sadly. But at the same time then, there are always people that still look up to you.
You're art most definitely does not SUCK, nor does your Gallery. And it's normal for an artist to draw something and LOVE it and the day after to look at it and think, "OMFG what the hell is THAT!?". Artists are always their own greatest critic.

Just keep faith dear.:hug:

Oh, estou passando por essa mesmíssima fase... mas só eu tenho um bom motivo. ;)

Seu estilo é fantástico, vc é uma das artistas mais habilidosas desse site! E acho uma pena que vc não poste com mais frequência. :<

Nossa, estou lisonjeada. O_O

Mas eu sei que é exagero teu para consolar um irmão em crise artistica. T_T
Bah, sério. Vontade de deletar 80% da minha galeria. :heartbreaker:

Mas enfim, obrigada pelo elogio exagerado. :tighthug:

Your art is gold, not trash! òó
And I´m very happy to see you around again, I missed you!!:glomp:
Heylenne Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2010  Professional General Artist
Missed you too! :tighthug:

My art is in crisis. -_-
Anyway, I think I'm finding my way again. U_U

Take your time sweetie, if you feel that what you illustrate isn´t good...give your muse her time, and probably a raise in her salary;)

I am here for you!:glomp::smooch:

I cannot believe anything you'd make would be trash! Your pictures are both luminous and atmospheric, and I really hope someday I can do as well.:nod:
Heylenne Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2010  Professional General Artist
Thank you, dear. :hug:
I'm just having my time to recover from the shock to see my own drawings after some time away. Your eye and brain evolve, and then when you check your old stuffs you get frustrated. -_-
EllaNyx Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2010
Haha, I know how that is! Ultimately it's a good thing because it shows you've grown.:hug:
Isbjorg Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2010
Your art is amazing :faint: And I'm wondering: do you draw a commissions?
Heylenne Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2010  Professional General Artist
Thank, dear! :heart:

I can do commissions, though I'm not officially open for them. Note me if you are interested. =)

I don't trust you when you say that something you've done is trash. I normally like it. :paranoid:
Heylenne Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2010  Professional General Artist

Thank you, TFO, but... You know when you stop and check your own works and you disapprove it? And you look to those things you admire and then you look back to your stuff and... you want to burn it all? Okay, maybe not. U___U
It's a phase, I know. Soon I'll find a style that makes me feel more confortable with. x_x
TheeForsakenOne Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2010  Professional General Artist
I do have that on occasion with one story or another but not often. I tend to only get destructive when it's a more personal piece or one I did for a friend I'm no longer friends with. ^^;

Anyway, I think your style is great. :nod: Artists tend to be their own worst critics sadly.
