This makes me so sad...Skin by *xXTokyoGirlXx
I just checked my dA inbox today after work and three, YES THREE... people have announced they are leaving dA.
This does make me slightly sad, especially when I hear there reason is that they have no motivation to draw and don't\feel there art is worthy.
YOUR ART IS WORTHY!
I just wish I could jump through the computer and give them a big hug.
We are all different, we are all unique in our own way, and so is your art.
I just wanted to take the time to write this journal to say, your art is beautiful (Yes you reading this!) Your art is perfect just the way it is, and your improving so much each time you pick up that pen/type/tablet.... or whatever medium you use.
I remember being here.. thinking I wasn't good enough. Feeling as though my art was worthless, but art is an expression. You should just draw what makes you happy, and if no one else noticed your art, WHO CARES <3 If your happy and you love drawing what you draw, be happy knowing that you have a talent, and draw, and get better FOR YOU. Don't focus on getting better for other people or to get recognition.
Believe me if you draw what you love, and what makes you happy then followers and fans will come in time!
Life is too short to let such an amazing talent go to waste. I'm sure more than half the famous artists out there felt this way, we all do.. but don't give up. YOU CAN DO ANYTHING!
Practice makes perfect!!! and I know this is a lame.. overused phrase but its SO true. Keep focused, and do what makes you happy! <3
I just wanted you to know your amazing, and if you feel like giving up, please know that we have all felt this way, but you can push through.
