hey watchers! GET FEATURED!!

Mon Jun 22, 2015, 10:42 AM


Profile | Gallery | Inbox

this is a self-centered rant journal, but i felt selfish for that and so what i want to do is help out my watchers a little. if you were already watching me before i made this journal, you can pick **two** of your artworks and post them in the comments below and i will feature them in this journal, in an update. no restrictions, anything is allowed!!!! i'm doing this as a "thank you" to my watchers. i want to take a moment to thank everyone who watches me, or follows me on tumblr or twitter, or has faved my work or given me nice comments. every single one of you matters because each time i get a new follower, fave, or nice comment, it gives me a great feeling. like this :happybounce: so don't think that you're only one person and you don't matter to me. you DO matter because you have given me more motivation to work on art and you have given me a more positive feeling about my own art. this is so important. the fact that you even did one thing to support me in any way is so important. you are very much appreciated!!! =) =) =) don't think that you are hardly making a difference to me because you ARE making a difference. i mean it.

this is the rant part: your follows, watches, etc mean so much to me because they give me hope that i can reach my dream some day. i want to be one of those "famous" people with a "fanbase" so that i can become a professional artist full-time. i don't want to be a part-time artist, i want to be a full-time artist. but in order to do that, i would have to have a VERY LARGE number of followers and watchers. i'd need to have enough people to actually BUY my stuff!!! i am nowhere near being a pro artist. but i still have hope that i can get there someday. so when i get a comment or watch or whatever, it gives me a little bit of hope.

when i receive negative comments, they take away a little bit of my hope each time. there was one time in particular recently when i felt absolutely terrible about myself. i forced myself to get over it a couple of days later but still, during that time i was so upset. i felt hopeless. that person's comment made me feel like my improvement didn't matter. that person's comment made me feel like no matter how much i improved, hardly anyone would notice. that person's comment made me seriously question myself and i wondered whether or not i could reach my dreams. it wasn't just that one comment, but the possibility of future comments. i wondered how many similar comments i would receive, for years to come, no matter how much i improved. it's already been happening for years

this is why i need people who support me. if there were many people who did not like my art, how could i become a pro? i couldn't. i do like my own art, right now. (i don't always like it. but right now i do.) still, i'm just one person. i can't be a pro if i only impress myself and not other people. i think i have come a long way and have improved a lot but there are others who don't think so. i will not let their opinions destroy my sense of accomplishment. i know what i've improved on. i know how much time and effort i have put into my work. even though some other people can't see it, that doesn't change what i know. however, the fact that there are some people who did tell me i improved is sooooooo very very important to me!!! i've gotten comments on how i have improved a lot, and i've gotten comments about how i've barely improved at all. i'm getting mixed messages, and this isn't new. i've been on this site a long time. over all this time, i've gotten lots of positive comments on my art and lots of negative comments. to whom should i listen??? i should listen to myself first. but then, i have to listen to the positive comments. the positive comments tell me that i'm not crazy, i actually do have some art skills. and the funny thing about negative comments is that me listening to them and taking their suggestions seriously wouldn't do me any good. based on my experiences, i can tell you that it does NOT matter what things i try to improve on based on what other people say. if i try to make one thing better, someone else will come along and say that it's a mistake. if i listen to THAT person and try to improve based on what THEY say, then a third person will come along and say that that's also a mistake. basically, whatever i do is wrong. it honestly doesn't matter.

so, i have decided that i will not pay attention to any critique given to me unless the person giving the critique is one of my closest da friends. (because, those are people i trust because we have talked to each other many times and they know me well.) but other than that, no. i can't keep doing this. i'm not going to read some random person's critique and think 'oh goody!! all i have to do is improve on these things this person said and then everything's fine!!!' lol nope. i have learned that there will always be people who think that certain things i do are mistakes, and people who think that those same things are fine and it's other things that are mistakes, and there will be a third group of people that has a DIFFERENT idea of what counts as a "mistake" and what doesn't... uggghhhh. basically, i don't care anymore. i honestly cannot tell what is a mistake and what isn't. i don't know who's right and who's wrong, so i just have to listen to myself and i will listen to people who have followed my art for a long time and who genuinely like my art and care about me as a person. i can trust people like that. and i can trust myself because i am the one who has put hours and hours and hours into doing all this artwork. but, i can't trust anyone else anymore. starting now i will adopt an "i don't care" attitude and i will concentrate on positive comments, close friends, and my own creative instincts.

sidenote: i have an idea that i want everyone to try. it's something i've done too. whenever you get a very good comment on your art, copy and paste the comment, along with the person's name and the date, into a document on your computer. it may not seem like much now, but if you do this over a long period of time, like months or years, those very good comments will add up. you can reread that document whenever you are feeling under-confident. there will be comments that you will have forgotten about until you reread the document. so yep, definitely make that document today!! if you keep it going for a long time, you will have a lot to put in there.

haha it's a funny story, i'm just going to explain it here in case someone else is curious too.

it's not actually about me, it's about bunnysquisher who is having a contest and started a thread about that, and also she started two other forum threads about wanting to trade items with other people... and yuskisakura got mad because she thought bunny's contest rules were unfair. she also got mad about the trading because bunny did not want to trade with her.

so she posted angry comments in all three threads

comments.deviantart.com/18/208…
comments.deviantart.com/18/208…
comments.deviantart.com/18/209…

she probably left a complaint comment on bunny's contest journal too somewhere but i don't feel like finding it. the journal is still there so i guess all the comments are still there too unless bunny has hid them.

anyway she started two forum threads called "petition against this contest" because she wanted bunny to change  the rules. the forum threads got closed by moderators pretty quickly.

and she started two journals about petitioning the contest. idk why there are two journals, i guess it was an accident?

PETITION AGAINST THIS CONTEST! UNFAIR!!
PETITION AGAINST THIS CONTEST! UNFAIR!!

then she started a journal trying to tell people not to enter the contest.

DO NOT JOIN THIS CONTEST!!!

then she decided to enter the contest anyway, because she knew she wouldn't win and she was going to complain about "bias." this is the first part of her entry (the contest requires multiple entries)

Entry 1

but she has been very rude to everyone. she is a spoiled brat who thinks she is entitled to winning first prize which includes a tablet. she thinks she deserves the prize just because she think she's soooo special!! and she said that bunny was the one who was being rude when actually bunny was very nice. tons of people including myself called her out on her horrible behavior but she just argued with everyone and refused to listen to anyone.

then she faked a screenshot that showed that bunny was supposedly rude:

Proof of BunnySquisher's Injustice

after the fake screenshot happened, many people reported her to the da staff and she got banned.

but the reason there are comments on my page was because yuski was mad at me because i kept arguing with her lol

btw she has three other pieces of art on da and all three of them are low quality. yet she thinks she's a great artist.

Doodle
More Doodles!
Dooodlesss

she was too lazy to actually draw a detailed artwork...

wow i didn't know she'd go so far as to fake a screenshot. that is disgusting. i hate dishonesty. dishonest people are crap. it was funny when she was just a rude child throwing a tantrum, but now she's taken this drama to the next level by lying... i'm going to report her.

i'm pretty sure that lying is a form of injustice, and YOU lied.

holy crap everyone can see that you lied, yet you still deny it. people post proof that you lied and you still tell people it's true.

i used to say "you are a child" but no, even most children don't act like you. i don't know how old you are and i don't care because no matter what age you are, you appear to have some kind of mental illness. you are simply crazy. you are not mentally stable. you cannot think. you don't know how to think. PLEASE seek professional help because something is very wrong with your brain.

I just wanna say you're pretty awesome for trying to talk some sense into that entitled brat complaining about that contest. That kid needs a reality check for real.  Sometimes you need to work crappy jobs to get nice stuff.  Heck, I worked two part-time jobs during my summer vacations for YEARS to get myself a laptop and my art supplies, and am currently saving up money in the event my current tablet dies on me.

no YOU'RE awesome! i saw your comments too and i just thought everything you said was great :heart:

i think yuski is mentally ill, to be honest. i used to think she was a child. maybe that's true. but this isn't even normal behavior for CHILDREN. idk how old she is. real children who act this way usually get punished by parents, or teachers, or someone. and most real children are not complete idiots like her...

i think she has one or multiple mental illnesses.

but what makes me happy is knowing that real life will be her teacher. she will eventually work those same crappy jobs you worked on. but she'll probably complain to her boss and then she'll get fired lol

she'll learn.

i don't know when she'll learn, i don't know how, but it'll happen. she'll find out the hard way.
