I have a tumblr too! >>>>TUMBLR
I'm not fourteen anymore but I have to say the unexpected DD really made me feel like I was again: new to Deviantart, eager to meet other community members, share my art, and become a better artist. It's almost nostalgic! How badly I wanted one when I was younger!
I must say though, wow, what a confidence booster. Thank you so much to everyone and anyone who stopped by to look, favourite, or leave a wonderful comment for me to read. I teared up. I really did. I've felt really shitty about my art lately, which is no biggie, I'm just a hobbyist. I just felt like I haven't improved at all and that I can't make the art that I want to make. But seeing people like my art the way it is--in all its messy, dissonant glory--really makes me happy. It makes me want to make art and enjoy the process, not hate myself the whole way through.
So even though this DD thing is a small thing, it's a big thing to me. So thank you again to anyone involved and everyone leaving me such wonderful comments.
Keep making art!
