There are few things I despise in this life.
Trying to get into your car with your hands full...
Watching a drink flip out of a to-go cup holder on the drive home...
After sharpening a pencil, the whole piece of lead decides to just fall out and over...
And most of all...I despise spiderwebs. Get out 

I hate going out in the morning/evening and walking right into one of these things. Spiders just feel like they are scout regiments and can whee everywhere leaving their little lines behind. Only later, for me to walk right into and get them stuck in my hair and my face somehow right in my eye line.

As bad as these things are, it occurs to me often that people place far too much emotion/thought/care into what the internet thinks about their works.

I post my artwork on many social media sites and observe various reactions by different communities.

Some communities favor something I posted
 :iconmnrthumbsupplz:
 
...while some turn a big thumbs down to it.
Pyong Cry 

I observed that the mindset and trends for the community greatly depend on your success or failure with a certain piece in a certain community. This is something you should all know if you have not learned this by now.

After playing music for the past 27 years and now starting to try my hand at art,
I have remembered the most important rule to any artistic venture.

Always and only do something because you love doing it.

Don't ever do anything for the sake of reputation or internet points.

Express yourself in the way that needs to come out and find your satisfaction in that alone.


Don't listen to the naysayers. When your internet points say that "0" people liked something, don't get stuck in the interwebs.
 :spider: 
Keep making art. Keep being productive and fulfill the need that is inside of you to accomplish a work in your own eyes.

Hope this encourages someone today! SPIDERRRRRR PIXELLLLL 

Hug

Jamie

Do you take requests?

I was thinking of asking if you could do Levi from Attack on Titan or maybe one of my Oc's.

I may not be able to at this time. I am currently doing finals in school and I am about to start on a project. I will keep you on my list. What kind of pose were you thinking of for them?
