This is gonna be a short journal entry, but I'm just curious if others have this problem. I don't know about everyone else, but I get very disappointed when I post art and it gets 0 favs or comments. When I think I have a great piece of literature or art my confidence level is high, but then I post it and no one favs or comments. I know favorites and comments don't define anyone's art, but it sure gives a me a lot more motivation. I'm sure people will comment with "Don't mind what others think" but with all honesty, that's almost impossible to do. I know I'm not the only one.

Yep, been there! :) It is frustrating however I would also prefer no comments or favs if people are just going to do it because they know I want them. Know what I mean. I don't want insincere opinions. That's just me though. But I can completely understand the feeling and I am sure there are many more of us on here that can!

I definitely know what you mean... although my art is definitely not too great, I love getting the occasional fave and rare comment. I try to go and comment on newly submitted things I like so they get that occasional comment then... I feel bad if I don't.

I can completely understand, I mean no the amount of comments or favorites do not define someone's art work. At the same time though it's just nice to be given that little nod once in awhile that says " hey that's pretty nice, great job". You can love what you do and you can love what you draw but if you make or write a million things and no one says a thing about them, you're likely going to start thinking " what's wrong with my stuff"

Now you have awesome stuff, example is a poem you wrote called Desires that I saw very well written.


Never stop submitting because my opinion is that if you get one comment or just one favorite that should mean more then a million meaningless bandwagon comments that you sometimes see on this website.
