I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for following me. From Deviantart to the deepest parts of the web, thank your liking my modest stuff and being so supportive over the years.
I've been posting my art all around the web for almost 20 years, and my hectic art path never allowed me to set the bar higher and try to connect myself with more people. At some point in my life, I expected to get fame, get a professional art career, got frustrated when things didn't go as expected, and I almost gave up on drawing because of this. My crippled low self-esteem didn't not really help, neither.
For many years, I always strove to get noticed for my art by my peers. As a self-taught artist who never had the opportunity to take art classes for real, my biggest achievement would have been to be praised by other professional artists, and I tended to dismiss all the critiques or even compliments from non-artists people. Today, I realized that praises from professionals is somewhat a shallow goal to me, and the actual accomplishment is to be found somewhere else.
So, whether your are 10 or 1 million followers, it doesn't matter actually. I'm so grateful for having such diligent people who keep liking my stuff, commenting and give their good impressions on what I draw. Sorry for having neglected your kindness and appreciation in the past. Sorry for not showing how happy I was each time you showed me your love. It was actually heartwarming.
Much love <3
