Discouraged Goodbye DA

Hi there , this is it for me. I'm done with this site guys. Thanks to those who take note of my artworks. Will always be thankful for that. Apparently I'm feeling discouraged to continue uploading my works here now. So I'm just going to stop and be gone from this site. I feel pointless uploading and yet getting no feedbacks in return most of the time too.  



Only for those who seriously wishes to commission. Please contact me via this email. Ty. (Not enabling copy paste mode cause apparently I'm getting weird messaged from spam / prank mails previously)

Awww. Please continue doing art, you are amazing. I've been checking your work since 2008 when you posted that video "My Anime Artwork". You improved a lot! Don't give up!

I was gone for a few months, and when I finally come back, you're gone.... but it's alright. I understand that people need breaks and that people just haven't been on here as much as they probably could have been. Waaaah!  Even if you no longer upload things here, we'll all still be waiting for you to come back, since you've inspired so many of us. Love Hug Love Until then!

Will you continue uploading your work on different sites? Because i like looking at your work :/ If you are could you please link where you will be uploading? I hope you continue to draw.....

Take a break if you need to. Maybe make a new account when you feel ready to share again. I can understand having a haitus, even a permanent one from your account, but I do hope you'll come back someday. DA is full of people who appreciate art such as yours–you just have to give it time and find the right group of people.

Also, please excuse my horrible english... ^^;

OMG no way! Q A Q I'm sorry I haven't commented on your newest art lately, but I've had a huge hiatus from dA...
Coming back and seeing this!! JUST ASDFGHHJKKl Plllzzzz do not quit!!
You're one of the very few artists here on dA that I actually consider taking my time to comment properly on your art.
I'm not very good at giving I usually don't even bother to feedback people's deviations. OTL
Also many people get angry if other people tries to help out and correct mistakes... :/
However, you're one of those few who actually asks for an opinion!
And usually I don't do that, but seeing as you really wished for more people to give you critique, I always take my time to look closely into your pictures, and try to see what I like and what I think could be adjusted!
Also, I really enjoy seeing your drawings! They always seem to lighten up my day, and they give me lots of inspiration! <3 Finding new stuff from you in my inbox, is like finding treasures in the middle of everything!
So plz don't leave dA behind! Plz, I beg of you... I love your art! Your on my "top artists list" here on dA!!
Onegai... ; ^ ; Senpai ni taizai kudasai!
I don't mean to sound annoying... BUT PLEASE DON'T LEAVE YOUR BIGGEST FAN BEHIND SENPAI :iconcryforeverplz:

I'm sorry that you're leaving DA; I've always loved your artwork. I know how you feel about not getting feedback on artwork... God bless and hope you are doing well in all aspects of your life :hug:
akira789 Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
:icondragonpokeplz:  Could you just take a look at all this comments under mine?  They are so amazing and cheerful ; u ; You are really really good artist. I love your works and I'm sure that your 2k watchers also appreciate them. I think that people are just too shy to comment or can't write in english very well (like me . u .'). Awesomeness can not be measure in feedbacks.
So many people will miss your works ; n ;
I hope you'll be still drawing and improving and always believe that your works are good(because they really are) and maybe some day come back here ^ ^

... If I shared that logic I should've been long gone. You're one of the best artists I've seen on dA, you're one of the people I actually look up to and hope to be as good as! :tears: Just because you don't get feedback on some works doesn't mean you should be discouraged! I've got about 60 watchers, and not even one faves or comments anymore (since quite some time, too... ), so I guess I kind of can relate (kind of)? Do whatever you think is best, but don't be discouraged. Even if the world turns its back on you, you can't give up. You are one of the people too good to give up, so do your best to stand up, ne? I know I'm not of much help, but I'd be honored to lend a hand. (...was just too shy to speak up before ^^; sorry...)

Please always believe that your works are amazing. I personally think you're one of the best artists out there. And I can't think of anything to critique your work-it's beautiful as it is and we cant question your art style. Maybe it's just me, but I feel embarrassed to critique because you're WAAAY better and ahead of me.. 
Please still pursue art, even if you don't want to post on this site anymore. I will certainly miss your artworks, but I hope someday you'll be happy with your masterpieces and be noticed by a wider audience.
I wish you all the best~ Ganbatte!! :iconyattaaplz: :icontogaitosmileplz:

It's always sad to see talented artists leave a site.  I hope that you get a lot of inspiration from doing this and that your art continues to grow.  It is taxing to be surrounded by the online buzz constantly and if this break is a good thing for you, then go for it.  I will miss your work.  It was really happy feeling.
Wolftrey1113 Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2014
noo don't be negative please :iconulquiorrahorrorplz:
i really like your works, and even if you don't get feedbacks giving up is not the solution :(
i know how it feels, i don't get much either but i wanna do my best to change that so please don't you give up either :)
TwinOfTwins Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Noooo! Please don't go! Lots of people really love your work and will be really sad if you leave! If you want more feedback, then we could all give you some, but personally, I think your work is really beautiful and doesn't need any! Please please please stay!
Saaiie Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Alright, goodbye. Im gonna miss you. Take care friend ^^
Sarskutti Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm really sorry that You feel that way, Because your works are RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING!!! I really like your art and like all your watchers, i wouldn't want You to leave. But i understand if You really want to go.

As long as You still Keep doing art You shouldn't feel discouraged. You have amazing talent!

Nilfea Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2014
This is such a shame ;n;
But I can't rly blame you, there are so many artists in Da that it's hard to stand out, or to be noticed, so you need to work to get there.
I've sometimes found amaizing artists on Da that only have few followers, and it always makes me wonder, why are these such good artist not more popular? but it's very simple, you need to be active on Da, and socialize with the other artists :D
Not only it's more fun that way, you might make rly good friends! ouo

I rly love your art and it's sad to see you go, but I hope all the good for you and don't give up on art! >u<
Also if you ever feel like coming back, I'm sure people will gladly see that happen :D
Are you going to upload on other sites? if so can you possibly link them? ;u;
OranButtons Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Now hold on just a sec. You're stuff is amazing. Just because no one every comments on it doesn't mean it's not appreciated. I may not have been on DA as long as you have, but I have the same issues. I'll have the same 2-3 people commenting on my stuff all the time. And all I get from them is "it looks awesome", but this is the internet, this what's expected. If you want actual feed back, take an art class (but even that doesn't always work). 

I originally joined DA to get people to critique my work, and it just doesn't happen and I've learned to accept it. I get better advice by asking people personally or when my teacher throws my stuff up on the screen for everyone to see. That's when you get good honest advice on what you are doing right and wrong. 

Anywho, I hope you change your mind and decide to stay and share your art with us (with or without feedback). I hope this post doesn't come off in a horrible way.
Madam-Joji Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm very sorry to hear you are leaving. I don't understand why I don't have more of your art in my favorites, everything I see is amazing.  I would favorite everything, but I feel like that would make you feel like I am only paying attention now that you are thinking about quitting (although I really wish you would stay). I hope people start to pay more attention!! It doesn't look like you have that bad of feedback, maybe a lack of comments, but other than that I would be lucky to ever get the amount of favorites you get. I'm not saying that you are overreacting I just really want you to feel better about your art. Someone with the talent you have should not feel discouraged about sharing their art with the world. If you ever feel the need to start sharing again please let us all know!! Whether you are using the same account, or starting up new on another! AND DON"T QUIT WITH YOUR ART!! CONTINUE TO DRAW OR DOODLE IF THAT'S WHAT YOU LOVE TO DO!

I really like your artwork. I hope you continue to produce art because it really would be a shame if you stopped.

Your art is amazing! I always look forward to when you posted something. You should not feel discouraged at all. You and your art will be missed.
