My page reached 4,000 views the other day. omg wow amazing I actually have no words descriptive enough as to how grateful I am!
You all have helped me so much to get to where I am now as an artist and I can not be more happy about that. When I first started this page, I was in a pretty dark place in my life. My closest friends were switching schools, I was going through the biggest family... thingy.. that has possibly ever happened with my family, rumours were going around school about me (not very nice), and so on.
But then a friend introduced me to here and I made an account, skeptical at first. But I immediately started to get to know some wonderful people who encouraged me a ton to keep going and keep drawing and writing and even critiqued my work without holding back so I could get better. And even though I wasn't good, people still asked me to draw art for them! It made, and still makes, me extremely happy! I know that I have progressed so far as an artist and it's definitely to all of my friends who support me both on DA and outside of it.
This past week has been hard for me and another friend for many reasons, but as soon as I draw, write, or even look at others' work on here, my spirits are instantly lifted! I hope to keep progressing as an artist and writer and that you all will continue to support me as wonderfully as you have been!
Lastly but most certainly not least, thank you again! I hope you have a fantabulous week!
