How I view my Tumblr audience:
How it actually is:
dude, how come you stopped making youtube videos? I found them extremely helpful with my art and very entertaining. I really hope you can get back to it :/.
It was very stressful and it really wasn’t for me. I know it was helpful for a lot of you, but there really isn’t much else I can help a lot of you with. I would spend all week trying to figure out what I was gonna teach you guys when I still needed to teach myself new things. Maybe I’ll do step by step shit here on tumblr, like I’ve done before. Honestly my videos just tell you where to go and I explain why you need to do shit for yourself. It really wasn’t me that was being super helpful, I was just making you all aware that tutorials are stupid and you need to actually learn and study for yourself.
I’ll post some practice work and maybe talk about it here, but I’d rather stay away from YouTube. I kind of want to stay away from the internet entirely. Though there are amazing people that follow me, there are incredibly rude stupid and hateful people here that I want to avoid. I’ve decided to be a little bit more of a quiet person and just post my art like I used to before. I’ve exposed too much of myself as a person which makes me very susceptible to the picky and obsessive teenagers that lurk on the internet.
I wasn’t getting as far as I wanted to with my YouTube anyway. I have other things in life I must explore and I don’t want to be restricted to being a YouTube artist/vlogger, because that shit was not making me happy. In the end it’s about what makes me happy, and though you guys are so amazing, I care more about myself and my own happiness. You all will do perfectly fine. Just remember to be independent and curious. Poke around until you find what you were looking for and push to what your goal is. You all are very talented and potential young artists and you can do whatever the fuck you want.
You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment. People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously. Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life. Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day! So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!! Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions. Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it. With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!
We are right here!!
