Everyone, sorry to seek attention, but I've just taken the heaviest blow of my life, to my pride, to my entire art style, to the past four years of my life.
I saw on one of
's videos that a comment had been made, and she made a very snazzy comeback as we all know she could, and given her icon, it was just the funniest thing! So I commented, she nailed it! But then someone shot me down worse than I could have humanly thought.
" at least I don't draw like a 2 year old :3 "
Now THAT right there, that hurt. Sure I can't argue the toss, the person draws pretty damn good, but for them to say that, a stranger. Shattering the past four years we've all shared, my entire run at college, everything I could ever have hoped...
Sometimes you lose someone and you feel like the most important thing in the world has been torn away from you, and you're in shock, you just can't grasp it. I've got that feeling right now. Let's face it, sure we all started off on Microsoft Paint, but you've all soared onto all levels of awesome with your styles...and mine's still very basic. That person, comparing them to myself, I could never hold a candle to their talent...oh why did they have to go and do that?
Sorry everyone, when I started out I never could have contemplated this. It'll be ok I know, but that blow's left me seriously demotivated, I won't make the same mistake again, all my artwork will stay here, it's not going anywhere. I just need a day or two to pick up the pieces of my shattered dreams. I'll be in touch. All my love as always, Ollie.
