Been real bad with correspondence...god so sorry guys. Somewhat abandoned DA to spend time on Tumblr
Other than that, mainly keeping busy getting my health in order. A positive note the hand tremors appear to be getting better which means more arting. Still not completely sure what was causing them. The depression & anxiety are both pretty manageable these days. Honestly never thought I would have survived those painful 2 years. Was very close to ending it all. In a very dark place. But a word to the wise, when dealing with depression SEEK HELP!!!
This has been on my mind for a while: Comments and Favorites.
Long story short - The problem of the "fav and run." DA has changed there's no doubt about that. Now a lot of folks do a fast fav rather than spend time to leave a comment (not gonna lie guilty of it myself). While favorites are nice and all, we artists thrive on feedback. We work extremely hard and when there's no feedback it feels like that time + energy was a waste. Going to your messages and seeing 50 faves to no comments is a bit disappointing. Like "Did I do good, bad or meh?" "What did you like about it or what could I improve on" etc. To post something you’re proud of and get silence in return... hurts. Which then makes an artist not want to continue posting. While no it's not a mandatory thing and yes I understand folks might be busy, just saying it would really be appreciated if you could leave commentary/feedback. (Hoping this doesn't sound selfish as fuck)
Also dealing with the issues of art comparison and whole the social media popularity craze. But will save that can of worms for another time.
But stupid selfish venting aside, I really really appreciate all the support given over the years from you amazing watchers and viewers. Couldn't have done it without you guys. Loves ya!
On a lighter another HUUUUGEE thank you to everyone who left the birthday wishes and AND the wonderful gift art!! Was so spoiled this year....not worthy.
Thank you so friggen much!!!! (still needs to go comment on it XDD)
NOW GO LOOK AT THE BEAUTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
