My submission to sell my art on INPRNT was rejected, which hit me a lot harder than I thought it would. D: I feel like my art is good enough, not as good as the stuff in the Popular section but on par with the level of finish, at least the pieces I chose were - and I know it’s been slow but I have…
I’m sorry that happened. I completely understand the whole self confidence thing when it comes to art but don’t beat yourself up. You have made some major improvements! Maybe there’s another reason or maybe they just have a lot of applicants right now. Who knows?
Self esteem can be pretty… fragile. Especially if it rides on something like art. You can be proud of a painting or drawing but if somebody says something about it you might start to question why. ‘Do they see something I don’t?’ And that’s a legitimate question, but it’s only worth a certain amount of worry. So… take the hit to your self esteem if it’s already there. But look at how far you’ve come and how far you have to go. That’s what I love about art. There is always something to learn and perfect. If you really want to be apart of INPRINT then go for it! Otherwise put it on the backburner or don’t bother. It’s totally up to you! It’s your art, after all.
So… I don’t know. I guess I’m saying take the hit, feel your feelings but then go build yourself back up.
But you already know all this so dhfjfksahaggfidkmanimrootingforyouhighfive??
So I’ve gotten some new followers and I wanted to say hi! And also hello to my older followers as well!
So about me: I go by Pen or Rus, I’m an artist (who sometimes writes) though I’m currently recovering from a 2 year long art block. I do mostly digital but I’ve become more interested in traditional lately.
I’m a sarcastic little shit and rock a pixie cut that I like to style as a mohawk (this is VERY important).
I have an art blog that I don’t update as often as I should… this blog posts 3 times a day currently. Though, due to my job and constantly being exhausted from it, I sometimes let the queue run out and nothing gets posted for like a few days or a week idk. This blog is where I reblog things that make me smile or things that inspire me. So fandom, art, funny stuff is all here. There will be text posts but those are usually/almost always tagged ‘text’ or ‘me’ or both.
Yuh, I think that’s it… oh. And I LOVE COMICS LIKE DAYUM YIS PLZ
yup, that’s it!! Enjoy your stay!
Literally watching paint dry. So I can put down more paint and watch it dry…
