I've been drawing my original characters from an old story, re-invented. I used to get so depressed and hung up on how many people like it, but I realized that obsessing over what others think of my work is just a let-down. I need to push past what I think the world expects of me and do what makes ME happy. I may be giving up fan art for a while (not like I draw a lot of fan art), but I realized that drawing these characters--characters that have grown and evolved with me since 2000--is what makes me the most happy as an artist.
Expect more original pieces featuring my characters soon! I'm on a row
Thanks to those who commented on my last entry. Your words helped inspire me to draw and write what I like and not care about what others may think.
