Still life by mortalitas Still life by mortalitas
From the mind studio.

As of late i have inadvertently been making art to seek the approval of others. This has damaged not only the quality of my work, but my confidence. Of course to have a career in any art form, you will most likely be making art that other people want to see, otherwise you wont get paid. so i want to revel in my opportunity to make what i want to see, because this is why i started to make art.

Art is art. It is a form of expression and emotion. Don't make art just for others-It will spoil your own image of your works. Create the art for yourself, and do so forevermore. If you yourself don't seem to like it, I don't want to look at it. Personally, I believe you should think of each stroke as a masterpiece, then I'd want to admire it all the more. As it is, I faved this piece because it is so incredibly fascinating. Then I read your own artist's comments, and I frowned. Please love what you do for yourself, because I know that thousands others like me are waiting eagerly for your next piece, and to enjoy it we want you to enjoy it yourself.

this one looks really nice although I'm not sure what it really represents. Though when I look at it in the small view, I see a woman looking down-right. hmm... anyhow, beautiful piece.

This is not true, art should be created purely for oneself. If others find it appealing, excellent, you've connected with them through your work. Your individuality and unique skill is something that people in the underground art communities will adore and cherish. Keep up the incredible work, Please.

Very slick.. very classy.

And yet it seems rather clean.
