As some have noticed I have been posting a bunch of sketches recently.
It is all thanks to my Christmas gift this passing year, I was given a Huion Tablet
and it's the best gift I've been given by far!
I've brought myself a tablet before and it was very hard for me to handle
so I gave up, with this one I was scared at first because of my struggle before
but really wanted to master using it so I practiced and got more comfortable.
I can't explain how wonderful it is to finish a sketch in under an hour, I've used a mouse
for all of my digital art career and it's always taken me soooo long to achieve one artwork.
It's made me lose my passion and I felt like I wasn't as good or keeping up with my fellow artist which depressed me
even more. I have a job that is my first priority and I couldn't find a way to continue art and give my attention to art
full time so I left and considered never drawing again.
Also I will state that Deviant art is extremely hard of a community to be apart of and feel important
or like you're actually getting anything out of it. I've always felt underappreciated and even now I really struggle
to find the reason in posting art and trying to stay relevant here. I don't receive the views or critical help to actually prove
it's worth my staying around. I think at this point it is better for me to create my own space in where I can be noticed more
and grow. DeviantArt has been nice but now it only seems to serve as a light connection for me and my friends to talk and even that is soon to be stopped once I can collect their emails.
My hope in writing this is that DeviantArt finds a better way to help artist like myself get the
attention and growth opportunities they deserve, I highly recommend others to set their own stage and
promote their selves if they wish to succeed in this business. This is of course my opinion and I deeply hope it is
understood. With that I say thank you to those that have noticed and encouraged me through this many, many years.
You are all a great piece of my achievements and have made me feel so blessed and loved.
I wish you all the best and see ya at the top!
