Artistically insecure -update-Edit: Thank you all for your support, and advice., inspired this.
I don't normally do these personal journals but I just wanted to get some things off my chest.
The past few days I've been struggling with this odd, artistic insecurity. Where I'm not really questing my ability as an artist but I am question my worth as one and my effort toward being one. (No plans on giving up, but still not pleasant)
I think part of my issue is my view of how good I did being: how many comments I get + how many are from artists I respect. *
I also don't really consider faves (except from like artists I respect), unless they're put in a named collection like "awesome stuff" or "cool transformations" because that's like a comment to me.
I still value faves, and collections those spread my art which is almost always helpful but I don't actively is the result of that the way I do comments.
Plus I have this often feeling of not exactly belonging to any one scene on DA, which certainly has it's benefits
I use a variety of artistic styles and genres and draw a various subjects; OCs, fan art, social commentary, niche art, comics, ectra.|
I'm a 25 year old trans woman ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans_wo… ) writer/artist, you can call me Victoria or Vy. I am a woman, I act, feel and think like a woman and I will not accept or tolerant any nay-sayings toward my womanhood or towards other women or transfolk for being women or trans.
I don't think I'm asking for a lot, I'm basically just saying "be nice."
I'm very social and love talking with others, if you have something in mind send me a note.
I do RP but it's not a priority for me and, I rather narrative RP over erotic
Point Commissions: Closed; but if you have an idea you think I may like ask.
When on DA my personal motto is: " If I fave, I comment."

Unless it's a commission, collab/coloring, fan art or I state otherwise,
as long as it's not for financial gain or political reasons.
-feel free to add my art/writing to groups, where it be appropriate-
If you want to contact me for conversation reasons I rather a note then comment but whichever is best for you is fine.
