    I enjoy your art for multiple reasons: the pastel colours are relaxing, and your art style is consistently relaxing, which leads to pieces which are easy to look at and generally appealing. I also appreciate your broad variety of talents, what with the anthropomorphics, trolls (human enough!), and various animals. I can barely get past animals myself! I think you have gone very far as an artist and have a lot of potential in the future.
    Also, chatots are wonderful- you immediately won my approval with that one.

    That's some really nice stuff you have and the pastel colors are quite relaxing, like the people before me said.

    One word of advice though,
    treat your art like an application for work. You want to "sell" your art to us, make us interested in it. So everything around it is also considered. You wouldn't call yourself a loser during an application interview, right? If you talk badly about yourself, everyone will start thinking badly about you even before seeing anything else and if they think badly of you, your product will be seen in a worse light than it is. It's really easy to avoid, just by using different words. Don't say loser, say "aspiring artist" or "artist looking for feedback" or anything possible in a positive direction. Keep everything positive.

    thankyou so much!

    thing is i don't rly care for 'selling' my art, i just do it for fun and like sharing it w/ others (esp considering i've only had two commissions since january bc everyone else either never pmed back or demanded a refund before i had the chance to start, so i don't rly fancy selling anyway)
    i don't consider myself an artist bc i don't plan on doing art as a job or anything and i can't say i'm rly looking for feedback either, like i said before i just like sharing ;w;
    i'll keep all that in mind tho bc u make good points

    What I meant wasn't literally selling your art but giving people a good impression of you. Sorry if I used confusing wording!

    And I do really like that new artwork!

    JesterKatz But, surely you jest.

    That's really amazing! I'm always astounded by traditional art. Especally any that don't involve the "standard" pencil and ink.

    aa thankyou but it isn't traditional i'm afraid ;w;
    i do trad art sometimes tho and colour it digitally if i manage to snap a clear pic of it :0 (used to use coloured pencils but can't find the motivation for it nowadays)
