I love my friends and I’m gonna talk about em for a lil bit so bare with me.
Okay, so I guess I’m just gonna talk about the beginning of the school year. So it wasn’t really that bad. I was looking forward to starting fresh since my junior year was an actual nightmare. But I was really suffering with my artwork at the time, the summer hadn’t treated me so well because of some really bad anxiety concerning my grades which ended up being in vane since my grades were good. But the anxiety definitely made my art really static and gross and my artstyle didn’t make me particularly happy. I didn’t/still don’t feel like I belong in the AP art program, even though I passed with my portfolio last year. I just don’t think my art is that good, I’m my worst critic.
Anyway, that’s not the point of this post. It must be positive. Anyway, fast forward a lil bit and I don’t quite remember how but I know that I met @glumios in Literature and probably over something Art/Homestuck related. Anyway, long story short, their art is absolutely amazing cuz it’s hard to explain but it’s just this perfect combination of softness and little bits of motion that I think are really just appealing. Oh and your color choices are really really soft and pretty. And I really love seeing sketch in class sometimes, even if it’s your cute little doodles cuz they’re just so cute, regardless of whether they’re shitty or not, they’re just authentically you. I know that the relationship you have with your concentrations is complicated since technical difficulties and all that but honestly, you’ve just inspired me to put more value in my own sketches, especially with color so thank you for that, babe. But yeah, this year has been so much fun to hang out with you and get to know you a little bit better and talk shit with ya sometimes. And also, I honestly got so excited when you told me you wanted to go into art because you’re going to make such amazing things and I cannot wait. Love you! (Lol, what am I gay or something? Smh >.>)
Moving on! I think I remember talking to @dragonsgalaxy a little more clearly because her work is crazy good and super recognizable. But I’m 100% sure that we talked about Steven or something. That or I probably like straight up walked up to you and complimented your artwork or something, I do that a lot. Even more so now that we’re friends. But yeah, honestly hun, you are super inspirational to me. It’s not even just the fact that your art is so good, it’s just how sweet and kind you are to so many people. And as I’ve gotten to know you a lot better, you’re still super sweet but there’s more to you than that now that I’ve gotten to know you, like tons of sass. But you’ve been very welcoming to me and honestly, you’re just the best for giving me feedback on my stuff, especially my artstyle and being really supportive too. But your art style is so so good and I cannot wait to see you be so successful in anything you want to accomplish. Just know that you’ve always got someone that will hear you out in any sort of situation. Love you!
Onwards! I’m very sure that @mizuchiart and I became friends last due to some sort of unfunny bullshit on my part. But like, the improvement that you’ve gone through this year has been crazy. You’re so talented when it comes to character design and ideas. And it’s not just that but your pieces are always really lighthearted and they focus on really pretty or just interesting concepts. Also, all your oc’s are such beautiful lil kids and I am glad that I ignited the flame inside you to develop and talk about em more. You’ve been super nice to me and I’m happy we are really comfortable with each other and affectionate cuz I personally, really appreciate it cuz it’s helped me be a more open person. Just, never feel discouraged about your stuff or what makes you happy because what you make is really good and it shows that it is very special to you and in turn, very special to me. You’ve just genuinely grown a lot and it’s been really awesome to get to know you and have some great laughs with you. Love you!
BAsically, I’m a very emotional little chick and I feel so good tonight and not plagued by anxiety so I just wanted to thank you guys. You’ve made my senior year really special and have given me a lot more confidence as a person and an artist even though we haven’t known each other for very long. Thank you for giving me a lot of confidence in my work and encouraging me to keep going with it. I know I complain a lot and ramble a lot and am ridiculously annoying sometimes. But I really care about you guys and I can’t wait to see you guys be really successful and find a lot of happiness in your lives. I probably should have saved this for when I graduated but it’s fine, I’ve still got a bunch of stuff to talk about. We still got two months. Just, love you guys.
