Thank you all a lot for all your encouraging words! They keep me going. It makes me so grateful to know that after such a long absence from this website as mine was, people still show support.
I take so much narcissistic pleasure from having my ego stroked by people telling me they've mistaken my drawing for a photo at first..
*so damn modest*
No seriously, you have no idea how much of an accomplishment it is to me to get comments saying one drawing looks like a photograph, or that another looks like a still from an animated movie (might I add, without having been ripped off of one). It just makes me so happy! It is really the only way that I feel I'm worth anything. Most of the times I'll just look at my drawings and want to cry my eyes out and rip my hair off because they don't look the way I want them to look, and then I come here and am more than pleased to learn you guys like my art (if I may so call it)! I'm so very critical of everyone and everything, including myself, that it amazes me to see such genuine compliments on my work, especially seeing how most of the times I'm even hesitant of calling my work art.
To me, art is special and I set very high standards for myself in order to accept what I make as art. I like to think I'm making art, and not just valueless drawings and paintings, but sometimes I feel I don't rise up to my own expectations. But you guys keep me believing that sometimes I do achieve what I set myself to do.
Having said that, I can't thank everyone enough. <3
