No one is going to read this, but it's up for reference just in case. I've noticed my skills wane from time to time. It is very important as an artist to draw consistently, something I have put off for a long time because of personal issues. But long story short, this is affecting me and the effectiveness of my drawings. I would like to thank those who follow me and support me knowing that everyone develop skills at different times. I am nearly 26 years old and have been drawing since I was 5, and when looking back, you can see that I have improved, as with anyone who has practiced their trade. However, professionally speaking, I do not possess the skills to draw on demand. This is something I hope to learn once I get back to school as I am majoring in Fine Arts and Illustration. I have a tendency to look at other people and wonder how they learned to draw from scratch at a professional level in the span of 5 years and I cannot, even though I have been drawing for over 20 years. It is quite embarrassing. I think I am a good artist, but I don't think I am a great artist. I struggle with expressions and caricatures (I prefer realism), something that is in high demand right now in the digital art scene. I struggle in class as I get distracted by other students and worry about how could improve more than me, as I do here and other places sometimes. I have depression and anxiety, so the lack of interest to draw really exacerbates my preexisting low-self esteem and vice-versa. Sometimes I think it is so unfair, but that's what we get when we choose to compare ourselves to others. I hope that one day I can overcome this illness and draw things that people will like, while enjoying myself while doing it.

I am what you call a red mage. I can draw, make costumes and write, but I don't excel at any particular one. I hope to one day become a polymath, someone who can master all of these arts.

I also sometimes think I'm Rosemary from the Metal Gear Solid universe, hence why there is a gratuitous amount of pictures of me cosplaying her. I also used to think I was Tifa, but that is a long story I won't get into.

Feel free to use my stuff, just remember to credit when uploading it for public view.
