Please read! FEATURES! All my watchers please read

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 21, 2012, 10:40 PM

:heart::iconeastybug::iconlittleravine::heart:


Okay It's obvious some of you guys need some pep talks!!!

Now, on my livestream tonight I kept hearing everyone talk down on themselves! Now, personally,  I think of all of you guys on here as my family. I love every single one of my watchers sooo much :heart:

So I'd like you guys to go look at my old account WolfArtista those drawings are one or two years old, and I'm still not amazing, no, but I want you guys to see you CAN improve if you devote yourself to it. There is always going to be room for improvement, trust me. I learn and experience new things every single time I draw a picture.

As for the watchers thing? Well you see I, too, started out with 10 - 20 watchers. For a long long time, in fact! I felt like my art wasn't as good as Citriel or Daesiy's. And I still wish that some of my artistic inspirations will add me to their watch some day! I'm so lucky so have as many friends as I do on here, I really am! So for those of you who are worried you don't have enough watchers, take it as a blessing. Because the second you got 1,000 people to watch you... they'd all be strangers! You need to take that time to slowly get to know every single one of your watchers because it's just a big family here on dA ;3 (mostly haha. damn trolls) I still squee when I get someone amazing who watches me, I still wish I was better than I am, I still wish I had more watchers, I still wish I had more fav's, etc, etc, but it will come. I know it will :] Maybe in a few years!

So this is why I stress how much I want you guys to just stop by and say hi sometime! I have 300+ watchers, and I hardly only know 50. Stop being shy, guys, because I WANT to talk to you! I WANT to draw things with you guys! Just ask me for an art trade some time~! (lol not now tho plz I'm swamped xD)

Anyway, I just want to take a little time to feature those of you on my Livestream right now who are feeling down about their art... cuz to me I see emotion and feeling behind everything you draw. And THAT'S what art is. Not fancy smooth lines and bright colors. I love the way all you guys draw because it's so... YOU! :] And when I get fanart from you guys... I feel like crying every time because it really DOES touch me. More than you'd know :heart: I never ever EVER thought I'd get to where I am today, but I have all you guys to thank. I really wouldn't be here without ya'll :heart: So go ahead and give your self a pat on the back ;] Cuz ya'll are truly amazing!


Also, when I see that someone has put me as one of their "idols" on their page.... You guys the first time I DID see that, I cried. Legit. Again, I never thought I'd be where I am today.

Okay is that enough writing? Have some amazing art:

Not to ignore your message, but putting up lynx for other amazing ARTists after saying we shouldn't talk down on ourselves is... Well...

I'm okay either Way.

Reserve the spaces for those who deserve them.

I was just saying that everyone else in the Thread was crying about how amazing everyone on the board was, and they'd kinda be right.

Either way, i still wanna get an Account, but i can't find a thing to make one

Well said, though I disagree with your view that we should know all our watchers. It's impossible since realistically, you just can't know everyone... nor does everyone want to get to know you. The watchers who DO reach out to talk to you are the ones worth knowing, in the end.

You're welcome. A lot of people start to get a big head when they reach your status. Good to see you've got a good head on your shoulders. :) And you're young at the moment, so you know, things can only go uphill from here. =D Good luck!

Ya know it really bums me out when I see those big artists get so big headed, and stuff, ya know? I mean I came on here just to show a few people my art, and the more the merrier, of course, but I think people forget that art isn't supposed to be about popularity, ya know?

Anyway, thanks so much for saying that :] I mean i really love all my watchers so much! And I hope when i do start getting a big head, they'll slap me back into shape x3

Yeah, some people just get kind of lost in it...I'm not sure where. And you're welcome. =D I love my watchers the same. And though I doubt you'll get a big head, I'll be here to slap you back into shape (just in case :)).
