Hey , I'm back from the hiatus! :meow:

I would sincerely like to thank everyone who favourited/commented on my deviations while I was away :hug:

While I was gone, I got to thinking about the direction of my art and writing. Before my hiatus, I was feeling uninspired to draw anything. Despite the fact I had quite a few ideas, I felt no enthusiasm to draw them, an when I did try to, nothing turned out right. I felt nothing for my art, that all I was looking at was a bunch of scratches and a scribbles on a page. It hit me two weeks ago why I had come to view my drawings like this. I don't know about everyone else, but I think it can be so easy to get caught up in the number 'favourites' and comments one gets.

When I look back on the past few months, I realised I had become caught up trying to get favourites/comments, and as a result, I fel my art wasn't good enough and it's what I based my worth on. Looking back I feel selfish, because I realise I was pretty lucky to have gotten the comments/favourites I did on both fanrt and OC pieces, and I think fanart has become probabaly the most popular catergory on dA, and original art does get noticed but not nearly as much. I'm happy that at least someone liked one of my pieces enough to favourite and/or comment on it. I also know that art is subjective, and not everyone likes a particular style of drawing/painting/writing. Not long ago, I wasn't that caught up in it, but somewhere along the line, it changed .I realise now though that of course I shouldn't be basing the worth of my art on the number of comments/favourite I get, but instead on it's meaning to me and if there is a message I want to convey through the piece :)

Another contributing factor was I didn't feel like my drawing quality and style was good enough to draw out the ideas from my head. As of now, I have a few ideas for my OC story 'Brothers of Lux', but when I set out to draw the scenes, it's like I have no idea what the heck I'm drawing. Even though I know what I want to draw and I can see the idea/scene fairly clearly in my head, I can't recreate it on the paper. I know you can't get everything completely accurate from your head to the page, and if there was one thing I wanted to do when I first joined dA it was to improve my drawing style. Even though I still feel my drawing style isn't high enough to draw out my OC stories, I know I won't get any better if I don't draw anything and not get feedback from people :la:

So from now on, I want to remember to draw/write for myself and whoever is interested, not for the favourites/comments. I don't want to get caught up in that again, and I will do my best to improve as an artist and remember to base my worth on what really counts :aww: I am grateful for the support I get from my dA friends and whoever likes what I draw!

Whelp, that's it for now. Take care everyone and thank you for reading! :hug:

G'day! I'm a 21 year old Australian Pisces who lives and breathes the arts. I love drawing and writing, whether it be for my favourite fandoms or my own characters.
I love all things anime and manga, as well as mythology, German and Japanese history/culture/lanuages, videogames, making friends, and cross-stitching.

My 'Webcam' below is usually good indication with what I'm obsessed with at the moment XD

You're welcome! :tighthug: I know! ;-; Life and school is so stressful lately! I don't get on dA much anymore. :c I keep trying to get on to talk to everyone but then things like scholarships, homework, or just life in general keeps preventing me from doing so. ;A;

I'm trying to become more active though and get on more! It's really great to talk to you, because it has been so long! :huggle:
