Hey :D your blog is super inspiring and I'm so glad I found it :) I was wondering if, in the past or maybe even now, some people judge you because you draw lots of stuff that's "dark". I really like it and one time I drew something sort of dark and someone asked me if I was doing ok :/ and I was. But now I'm sort of self conscious about drawing stuff like that, even though I still want to. I just dont want people to think im depressed If Im NOT. Any advice? And had this ever happened to you?
Thank you!, and no.. or maybe I am not aware lol, anyways, to be honest, I don´t really care if people do or not, when I paint something personal I´m never thinking on what people would think, I just do what I feel, for myself, and then what I like is that people have the freedom to interpret whatever they want or feel with the image, and that depends on each person and their life experiences and personalities, etc…
I think when you are painting something personal, you shouldn´t feel self conscious about something like that, you need the freedom to create whatever you feel to and be honest with yourself. If you are honest, I think someone out there would feel identify, and for me, even if it is only one person that feels somehow touched with the picture, then thats all that matters, I´m happy.
So.. my advice is, there will always be people who think negative stuff, who don´t like it, who do like it, who understand it, who don´t.. so at the end, you shouldn´t worry about that, you should create what you feel and be true to yourself.
