Since some people (a lot, I must say) come here and ask every day for a free drawing I have to say that I DON'T work for free.
I have bills to pay, I need money to buy food, clothes, pay University, and, seriously: artists are not rich. We have, in most cases two works, sometimes three. And is so sad to find a note in your inbox of a person who tells you how much he loves your work but he doesn't have money and, obviously, he will not pay you, but he repeats A LOT of times how really good you are, and he wants a drawing from you, and he insists and if you say, in a polite way, you can't do anything for free because of all the reasons I explained before, he doesn' t answer you anymore or suddenly you are the most terrible person in the whole world because you don't want to draw his OC because you are mad and a lot of stupid things I'm not.
Sometimes they tell me I'm conceited because I'm famous. Well, I'm not any of two things.
I'm not famous because there's thousands of persons here in dA and outside from here, better, MORE BETTER than me. They have thousands of favorites in a few hours. My pieces with more than thousand favorites have more than one year. These artists have an incredible talent that I just can dream. And I admire people who are better than me, and also people who put a big effort in things they do.
I'm not conceited because I know better than anybody what I do wrong. I know my limitations and I try hard to improve and be better every day, as artist and as a person. So stop judging people you don't know just because the don't want to make you free stuff. It turns you into a selfish person.
And that's all. I'm sorry for the rant. I don't want to make feel badly anybody, though this topic makes me feel badly. And also sorry for my English, is not my first language and I don't use a translator xDu
Finally, I want to say thank you to all my watchers and people who fav and comment my work. You are amazing and make dA a better place >_<)/ Love you all!! <3
