Howdy dudes and dudettes!
I recently visited profiles of my old homies, here on dA, only to discover, that some of them deleted their accounts (like for real). I found it's kinda funny, but after all - it's sad. Why somebody created a profile, upload their artworks, only to delete it? And some of them just disappeared, without a trace and don't visit here anymore. I know it's life, and people got chores or they have more important things to do (like living
), but leaving note, about that would be nice, at least.
Also, I noticed another trend - whining about oneself abilities to create artworks (or simply living). "I don't know how to draw!", "I cannot draw *insert something here* for shit!", "I'm prisoner of my own *insert adjective here, like: popularity,
fame, subject (topic?; theme?), actions, deeds or past*" and "I can't/won't improve!"). Of course, whining is something every human need, once in a while, but...
In case you didn't know: You won't live forever.
Your whining is irrelevant. Do your stuff, and let's it go bad or good. You have to know scary night first, to appreciate a glorious day. You have to know betrayal first, to appreciate true friendship (or any relationship, at all), you have to know how badly (relatively speaking) hakarl
taste first, to appreciate a bowl of porridge. And finally - you have to suck (at art/life) first, to appreciate any level of improvements, being it emotional/material (or visual).
Concluding: You have to experience a full spectrum of emotions, events, places and things, "bad" or "good" because they form a life's experience. And you need experience, to grow, as a human being. And therefore as an artist.
Peace poeple. Until a next time.
PS. Oh, and it's what I think, not an absolute truth. No one has words which carries ultimate truth about complicated topic which living is.
PSS. And I actually told one guy that he should erase his account... but come on. It's pretty hardcore, bro.
PSSS. What that hakarl
is. I haven't eaten shark meat, but I have tasted some other freaky dishes.
