@sylvia_ritter made me discover that there is an international monkey day. So I still have 30 minutes to tell you happy monkey day ! And also tell you to make your own monkey face with this free model I made (inspired from Blender's Suzanne):

Don't change your work to get more attention and stay true to yourself.
Luck, love and appreciation will come to you. And if you think that there are enough artists out there, you are mistaken. We want to see your imagination through your art.

If people don't react immediately after a newly released artwork, you and your art are not the reason. Your fans will find you. It might take a while (you might already be dead *sigh ). Keep doing what you love and improve through the years.

Today I woke up and found my tarot cards featured on Tumblr. While feedback on other social media platforms was sparse, reading the comments on Tumblr made all of my fears and doubts disappear completely for a few minutes. Thank you, CatFromWonderland <3: catfromwonder.tumblr.com/post/

Don't be intimidated by "professionals". If you have an idea you don't have to choose a traditional approach. It's all about starting and finishing something. And making mistakes. Over and over again.

You can work with colors and shapes, public domain reference images, 3D models, VR painting tools, your own photos (of your room, your lamp, your kitchen machine), molding dough etc.. You can turn trash into gold without using lines, without going to art school & fundamental art books.

My two cents about "I don't know how to draw".
I really don't like to draw on paper. That doesn't stop me from being creative. There are so many ways enjoy and finish a painting. Most artists can't draw and nobody has to feel ashamed about it.

Phew. The new tarot card is almost done. So far 15 have been completed including the first one "The Fool". sylviaritter.deviantart.com/ar

What it feels like for me to work on a painting.

My latest tarot card. Today I will continue to finish another one. ~ 40% until the next release. sylviaritter.deviantart.com/ar
