I don’t think people understand sometimes how much it means when I get likes on my creative works.
I’m not the best artist. I know this. And this makes me incredibly sad. My art is not good enough to get reblogs or to have people really care about it, and it’s disheartening because I put time and effort into what I drew, and it’s all just… ignored.
Which is why those likes mean so much. Because it means someone has looked at my art and said, “well, I won’t reblog it, but I like it, and the artist needs to know that I think it’s cool”. And it really just makes you want to do more, even if it’s not good enough to be reblogged yet.
Kinda gives you hope that one day “I like it but it’s not good enough to share” will turn into “I like it, this is awesome, I have to show this to people”.
