Lately, or I should say pretty often, I feel bummed out about my... lack of popularity when it comes to my art. I know that I shouldn't feel so down about it, but it's hard not to when I see other deviants who have hundreds of watchers when they're new or... (I can't say this without sounding like an asshole) not as experienced in art(?). I'm not upset with those other artists, however, because I'm actually very happy that they've found a place where they can gain attention and whatnot. I think it's just been hard for me because as hard as I try I just can't seem to gather much of a following. And I'm Positive
that there's Tons
of other artists that feel the same way that I do. And the only true thing that keeps me going even when I get bummed out, is reminding myself that I do art because I Love
to make art!! It's a selfish endeavor and that's how you should look at it. Never forget to be selfish!! Make art that you love, be proud of yourself.
Make art for you.
Don't make art because you want people to like you.
I mean of course it's okay to make art for others to enjoy but it should mostly be for you. like maybe 65% for you and 35% for other people to enjoy. Haha. That's how I look at it anyway.
