There isn't too much to say about myself, but I will try to share some info, though. I got this account by giveaway so there was a lot of thing I had to change since than, but it worth it!
I like to draw and I like webdesign too. I also like to listen to the music and watch the rain. Once I had my very own site, but I lost it. Anyway, I'm working now on a new one, so if you want ask me for the link and maybe I show you.
I like to spend my time with my family, so I'm not so often online, but I hope i'll make lot of friends here.
I'm always around so if you need help figuring out an issue like this I can help troubleshoot. I might actually learn some things as well since I'm the type who always leaves tools set to default. lol..........
I drew better on paper back then, but those were some of my first attempts to draw with a ball mouse. So yeah everyone has to start somewhere. I didn't even know what layers were and I was already like 20 years old.
I'm not like that. I don't mind working with people. o___O;
Not many people understand feeling this way. I can't really blame them since usually you have to experience a bunch of stuff before it hits you. Perhaps time and good connections with empathetic people can heal these wounds.
hahaha I don't find getting critiqued fun, but it is a necessity. Perhaps the more I let loose with art the more fun things like that would become? I'm still a rigid perfectionist. I often have to go back and fix mistakes once I notice them.
That void can never be filled for me either. I feel like a part of myself is forever lost. I have not given up, but I still feel like I'll be too weary of people from now on. I won't know if I can truly trust anyone.
Hopefully with time they will understand the importance of critiques. I tend to be a bit blunt when pointing things out. I'm not trying to be main though even if sometimes it can be taken that way by some people. I'm just a firm believer in honesty. I won't always critique people especially beginners since I don't want to discourage them. Though if someone seems to be trying to improve I'll try to help as much as I can.
Your friend was exposed to other people and influences during the time that she was away. You might not have changed, but she did and eventually she saw less value in you since your interests probably differ. sad Either way it's really sad when such things happen. You think you really know and care about someone, but it ends up being one sided.
The girl that you critiqued is taking her art too personally. You can't grow as an artist if you're not willing to accept that your work isn't perfect. I get how it feels though since you might be proud of something and a few words can make it feel terrible, but one has to distance themselves. Other people don't make such comments out of jealousy or to bring you down. They say it to help you improve. She has to learn that when someone sees a mistake in a drawing it's not a lingering feeling. They don't care. They won't dwell on it... Hell, they will likely forget about it... An artist cares because they are not living up to their own expectations.
I like to talk about the story plots and characters. The artist in me likes to talk about character designs as well. I feel like it's really difficult to find people who think about things more than face value?
Since my best friend abandoned me it has hurt my confidence a lot. I feel really worthless and useless? Like I had just been filler that was to be thrown away.
I'm sorry about your flue. I hope that you feel better soon. I hear vitamin C is good to take. I think it helps people not get sick? There might be other supplements that help as well.
