Hello to anyone who (probably accidentially) wandered onto this site!
The weather today was awful and I felt terrible for not doing anything constructive for all day, so I decided to do something that should have been done a very, very long time ago. I mean, to mark my existence on DeviantArt.
For years I've been a leech here - just wandering around, checking favourite artists galleries and such, not thinking about creating an account. What for? To leave my comments? Other people did it very well for me, my commend wouldn't change anything. To post art? Yea, I do like to draw and sometimes I do some sculpting, but I'm not a show-off. Also, comparing my works to the art I've been admiring here was even more discouraging. Who am I, to think I can mix between such proffesionals... The third factor is my laziness and quick loss of interest in what I'm doing. I knew scanning pictures and preparing them to be published would take a long time, so I avoided it for as long as I could. Most of them is not fit to be published - I draw with pencil, or rather sketch and doodle, and very rarely decide to outline it with pen. As a result, I have lots and lots of barely legible little pictures in shades of gray, which would look just terrible as a scan.
Yes, some people have asked me if I have an art account and expressed pity when I told them I didn't. Even my Mom has tried to push me to show my works, but I have always been like meh, give it a rest. One day I found a picture that would perfectly fit a morning mug, and I found a place where I could print it, but I would feel bad if I did it without asking an author of the picture for a permission. I didn't have an account, so I could't mail the artist - so I didn't get the mug. And that was a year ago.
But then something happened - and within hours I decided to create an account and comment on the art piece that has surprised me. Gosh, that was like that tiny step of the first man on the Moon - now that I have an account, I feel obliged to post something, not to keep it so empty and ugly. So from now on, I'll try to publish my creations that I think are worthy, and I will comment on the others' work. Go me!
Ah, and by the way, feel free to mail me, if you want. I don't expect I'll draw much attention, but I'll be happy to know someone noticed me.
