I don't know if everybody gave up on me or if there's actually still somebody waiting for me to show up from the dead or something. well here I am. I've had a long break, a lot have happened while I was gone but I've decided to show some of my art to the world again and get a little more serious about it.
one of the reasons why I stopped posting stuff on deviantart was because I got upset about the lack of attention my piece got. i thought I did a good job but could obviously see flaws in my work and wanted feedback and tips from other artists but a lot of times people like myself who aren't born with pencils instead of fingers don't get that many views, followers, comments ect. as all the popular artists here on this site, for that simple reason that they just aren't as good as them or not as well known, and that's understandable. however it got me down and I started thinking what's the point of posting art here if nobody notices it?
well i've been thinking about it in the time i've been gone. I started drawing an expressing myself through art for me. it was a way for me to understand emotion and explore creativity. not for anybody els. the value of my art shouldn't be measured in the number of favorites it gets. so from now on my art is for me. I will continue to post it and i would absolutely love hearing other people's opinion on it and gladly return the favorite, but i won't beat myself over the head understanding why i can't get many views on my work cuz that's not important.
so that's that. to fill in a little on what's been going on in my life. I finished public school, my exams went better than expected and i feel very proud of what I accomplished since school used to be a struggle for me. my parents got separated and I now have two homes, it has it's good and bad sides but it's life and to be honest it's getting along pretty well. I've taken a year studying abroad on a high school in North Carolina. there I explored aspects of myself i didn't know I had. I feel much more complete as a person. many life lessons were taught to me, many limits were tested, many talents explored. when I returned to Denmark I felt much better prepared for life and my future. In a few weeks I will be attending a Gymnasium were I will be studying music, theater and language, which I am thrilled beyond belief for. it's gonna be very tough and time consuming but I will hopefully still have time to be creative an continue my new found passions.
to those who have actually been interested in this I hope you are all doing good. send me a message, tell me how you are doing with your art or if you'd like me to look at some stuff. I'd love to get involved again.
