Time for a pissbaby rant. I may sound like a jackass but, whatever.
You see, I get scared to put insane amounts of effort into a piece of art, because I'm scared of rejection. Rejection as in the piece not being well, if not moderately received. Sometimes I can draw a shitty piece of art and even that would get more attention than my more rendered work.
Like I dunno if it's the times I upload stuff or, just things that generally don't interest people or???? Though, I draw the things I like so I could really care less what other's want to see, I draw for fun, what I like.
It's just frustrating because some people like me got what, 900+ or 700+ followers on social and art related platforms and can only manage 5,10, or 20 notes, faves etc. And the only reason in this life that I would EVER get anywhere near 60-100+ notes is because it's fanart and it's currently trending and I just so happen to like the subject matter as well.
I'm frustrated, sometimes I just want stop sharing my work. It's a disheartening feeling to spend so much time on an art project and get 2 faves or worse NONE. I don't care what anyone says, as an artist everyone single artist wants attention on their work that's why we share it.
I've seen pieces on tumblr or dA that are utterly masterly and have barely any recognition and I just don't understand, it leaves me flabbergasted. Like how is this person not getting attention?
What leaves me more confused is that people would, as flattering and nice as it is, tell you how much they love your art and whatnot yet make no effort to show that love or support with a fav, or retweet or reblog whatever. Though people aren't obligated it makes no sense. You must not like it then.
I dunno, I'm just frustrated with my art and I'm starting to look at it with distaste, I've been trying new things, drawing other things, experimenting, drawing out of my comfortzone.
I just feel terrible.
I'm sorry if this irritates anyone but, I'm tired.
I'm trying to keep the " Persistence will get you there, consistency will keep you there" mentality but it's hard.
