I got jumbled up thoughts but I'll keep it as short as possible:
I know that the number of followers and +fav's can get to us sometimes, to the degree of using these numbers as a scale of self-worth as an artist or even person.
But please take a step back and see that we use platforms such as dA to simply SHARE our creations and ideas of the shows we enjoy, our wild imagination and each unique form of expression.. even just plain dark humor.
Years ago I judged myself through these numbers. I insulted myself and hated that I wasn't as good as other artists. This demeanor did not help me improve my art, it actually made me hate drawing cause "nobody rewarded me". What reward? I have no idea now, but I just expected others to make me feel happy for what I did.
Did you enjoy drawing that?
Good, that drawing has already served you its purpose.
Treat yourself as you would treat your 6 years old self.
