Rise Art Trades: 1/3 Complete
arucelli A sketch I started after finishing homework ;u; ahhhh I wanna draw again soon// Also, to everyone who self-advertises on my posts:

Do what you want.

When you ask me to look at your art, I do actually go through your gallery. When you ask for a follow for follow, I check your profile out myself then too. But I won't follow you. As a personal principle, I'll give advice and critique to anyone who ask, but those who refuse to understand that popularity is not a privelage–but a byproduct of hard work and effort—do not earn my respect as a fellow artist. There's no glory in a big number if you asked for them. So don't complain if you self-advertise every day of the year but only get 20 new followers. There's no secret to making friends; followers are just a different way of spelling it.

Also I've been singing the Wicked soundtrack with my friends at lunch and wow I love this musical so much <3

  •   brimochi I need to save your description some how.. That's 100% how I feel about the whole popularity thing in here. I had a few friends asking me how I got so many people I just said I just upload my stuff and people /artist just started likeing and following me and that there's so magic into getting followers. They also get all emotional asking me that I'm "lucky" to know popular artists and followed that ask me for art trades and requests. It got me upset the fact the said "I'm lucky" how are you lucky to have a bunch of followers? There's so secret button that auto gets you people. It's the matter of them liking your stuff or not. I feel like they want me to help boost their numbers so they can get popular in a couple of days like I'm a resource to getting them exposure it's really annoying and kinda hurtful since I feel like they wanna use me like that. So I basically separated myself from a couple of people and more caution of who I talk to now. Instagram isn't a popularity contest on who gets the most followers that's for sure. 2h
