Hello deviantart I've been away for a while. I'm happy to be back. I've been feeling down lately, because I put up in complete artwork. My heart went the wrong direction. I begin to fish for compliments, and felt envious of other people artwork. I felt like I was in a competition with everyone else. I prayed to Jehovah God for strenght in humility, patients and contentment. Humility is a wonderful thing. (Proverbs 15:33) This is something I love to do. This time I'm going to take my time and put my heart into my work and do it for fun. I do not need the industry to dictate to me what is perfect artwork, because in the industry its all about making money. Then suddenly it becomes more about money and popularity, and you will become lazy and arrogant. I'm sure other artist have felt that way. Even if many do not notice, God does and thats all that matters to me. I will be able to complete my pictures and tell the story. Art comes in many beautiful forms. Like photagraphy, animation, scketches, painting, crafts, writing and sculpting etc. It is a blessing to be on here with other wonderful artist that express there thought through their art work. Even if you can only draw a stick man that is ok , because what matter most is that you put your heart into it. Let us all encourage one another and enjoy this gift from Jehovah.
