If you are any kind of artist

From music, to cooking, to making videos, to drawing.

YOU ARE WORTH YOUR TIME AND MONEY.
(Honestly, this applies to everyone, but I’m talking to artists at the moment)

I know it’s hard. I know some won’t agree to your prices. Some of you have “normal” jobs on top of your art time, some of you managed to make it full time. Some of you are hobbyist, some of you do it for a living.

Whatever you do, please, you are worth your time and money. No matter how good or bad you think you are, someone out there will admire you work, and if they want a commission, charge appropriately for your time.

So many of us are made to believe that this is not a real job, that this isn’t a viable career. I can officially tell you, it is. Both as a freelancer, working for a company, and more. It’s tough, it’s not easy, and you have to do a lot of research, doing your own bills, putting the time in, teaching yourself schedules, even learning bits of retail and other skills. 

But, it is a job. People need your work. From inspiration, to personal projects, to large projects for gaming companies, buildings, even food and industrial work. We THRIVE off of the arts. Both for entertainment and for daily life uses. Just because a project is not NEEDED and ENTERTAINMENT doesn’t mean that it isn’t still very INSPIRATIONAL and USEFUL to people. Our mentalities can’t live without a break, and having things such as a doodle to full movies and such help ease our minds and inspire us.

KEEP DOING IT. KEEP GOING.
Even if it means you have to have a “normal” job while doing your art. However it is you want to achieve your goals, I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT. DO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO.

Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Work hard, feed off of the hate and push to be better than ever. Keep moving. Even if it’s slow, keep moving. The more you keep walking, crawling, running, whatever pace… you are still LEARNING. You are still ACHIEVING, you are still DOING.

I love you all.
Keep it real, fam. Keep the peace. Keep the love.

All of you are amazing, from “normal” jobs to “real” jobs, artists to lawyers and more, it doesn’t matter. YOU ARE LIVING. You are doing what YOU need to do. 

One last piece, if you dislike someone else’s prices, work, or what they do. I am sorry that you have so much hate in your heart to take it apart to try to break someone else down. But you know, you matter too, and they are doing what they need to do in their life, just as much as you are. If you do not agree to it, walk away. Spilling hate onto others only makes your own dreams become even less obtainable. Believe in yourselves, believe in others.

“Thank You for 1000 Followers!”

Thank you for always making me want to be better, for making each of my day happier, and just making my life seems less boring <3

You guys give me a purpose, boost my self confidence, and so much more. Since I joined tumblr, I can safely say I have improved so much. So here is a little comic to show what you guys mean to me :D <3

A little special thanks to @arthur-nath @cypriusgray @sianbrooke who always encourage me and become a huge part in my experience on tumblr <3

But of course, you all matter. Really.

I can’t thank you enough. This really means a lot to me.

Also sorry if it’s a little confusing to read lol

So I saw a Cars fandom image going round here on Tumblr, and I’m more of a Deviantart person, so I drew the hidden faces of the Cars Fandom from DA!!! 

A lot of people aren’t on Tumblr from there, but those that I know are on here,  I’m the one raising my fist, my husband next to me, @darkwolfofwales below me, @lumeralightstar is leaning over the logo and @solo-swift with her killer eyeliner is being sat on at the bottom there XD

*Victor voice* Hi, Neru here! ( ö ♡ ö )/ 

The last time I did this was two months ago, but one just can’t let these types of dates go by, so, here I go again with another follow forever, now celebrating the 21k+ followers, a goal that I didn’t expect to reach at this point but you always manage to surprise me. I’m very grateful to each of you, especially those who have followed me for at least more than a year, or even if you’re now the last at following me, thank you for giving a “clic” to that little button, so this ugly graphic is dedicated to you ♥
This year has been a bit strange for me, I couldn’t call it neither bad nor good, but if full of surprises and “events” that probably will mark my personal life, who knows. With regard to the anime, has been a year of self-discovery for me, because I began to become involved in some tendencies and my opinions became more stable, I raised “my voice” a little and without fear openly stated my tastes about an anime, a character, a couple or some fandoms, which led me to lose one or another mutual but that hasn’t affected me at all, I don’t regret any decision taken and I will only continue as I have maintained until now. (ღ˘♡˘)

— TO MY FOLLOWERS: Thanks for staying there despite some changes made to my blog during these last months, there were adjustments that were necessary to make, but if you’are still there, I want you to know that I appreciate it a lot, especially in my most chaotic moments. I wouldn’t have something to celebrate if you had not followed me in the first place, it’s all thanks to you. I will try to be “cool” this new year too :^)

— TO MY MUTUALSHow you do it? And this goes especially to those who read my overdramatic tags and have seen horrible things of me, and that includes my graphics lmao. I can only say that you’are fantastic. Above all to those who are graphic makers and I adull in some tags, which far from being inspiration are now a source of envy lol. Out of it, I’m very happy that a year ago I added some of you, and this year I’m doing it again, although some have changed their urls and some minor things, but you’are still you and that makes me put something emotional *cries*. Anyway, thanks for sharing some things with me and for your patience, you already know that I’m not good at talking so … I love you all

— TO THE YOI FANDOM: Thank you for all the support! You made these months really enjoyable, many of your questions were fun to answer and your very personal messages too. A special thanks to my “non official YOI squad”, because thanks to them I could survive all this time, thanks to their original material and their reblogs, “Yuri!!! on Ice” experience was even better because of you, thanks ♥   

And now, here you have a list with very recommended blogs that you should follow.
Faves/friends are bolded and my non official YOI squad are italicized.

I wish to each one of you the next year to be much better than this one, I wish you to achieve everything you want, no matter how “impossible” it is, I trust that you will be able to prevail and do it. Christmas is near so I hope it’s going to be really enjoyable and you can rest as much as you can. And for last but not least,

HAPPY HOLIDAYS‼ ༝﹡˖˟ ⸜₍⁽ˊ꒳ˋ⁾₎⸝ ༝﹡˖˟
