This is a journal where I'd like to address an issue that I have gone through for most of last year. I would like to know what others might of done or what they think about it.

Some of you might know, people in my University didn't treat me very well in terms of my art. I have talked to several people about it, some consider it passive-aggressive bullying.

There a specific people, but mainly one person, who did and has said many hurtful things towards me. No matter how much I insisted on hating it, they repeated to do it virtually everyday or several times a week if I chose to draw around them. They are in my class, it is very hard to avoid them. 

This is the reason I began to hate digital art and changed my style constantly, because whenever I drew, I couldn't feel happy anymore. I couldn't consider it fun or work, it just wasn't enjoyable.

The person always said they were only trying to 'help', 'give their opinion'  or give 'criticism' to me. But a lot of what was said was similar to the following:

"Your art style is too sketchy, I don't like it."
"Your proportions are weird."
"I like this kind of style, you should draw like this, it's better."
"You'd be more successful if you listen to what we say."
"(This) should be like (this)"

I have also gotten general negative comments often saying 'it's just sh*t' or 'just redo it, it's not good'.

This person has also taunted me about self-harm scars.

A lot the time I would reply reasonably, I'd ask questions what I should improve, and a very common reply would be 'I don't know, figure it out, I don't know what would make it look better'.

There would be times I'd ask why some drawings weren't as successful as others, but some times I wouldn't agree to their opinion, and later they claim that I never listen. (Even though I've changed my style frequently to suit their opinions.)

Later, I started to reply aggressively because this would happen repeatedly. Saying they can't draw, why do they need to push their opinions on me? Or that I plainly said I hated being criticised by them, I don't draw of them. 
To which they would reply 'oh you should take criticism better'. When usually none of their criticism was constructive.

I have tried shifting different rooms, telling them to leave, telling them to shut up, all sorts of tactics in order for them to stop.

These people only draws for fun or doodles, they can not draw anything nor takes it seriously (and whines about people who could draw better, when they never practise)

People have said this is probably mainly out of jealousy, but it has effected me greatly. Moving on to traditional, where I can mostly draw at home, freed me from them. 

The person contacted me recently, asking why I hate digital:

  • I'm guessing we have something to do with why you hate digital seeing as you're avoiding the question
  • Yeah, probably
  • Didn't think you'd break so easily
  • Didn't really want to be criticised anymore. Like, everyday.

'I didn't think you'd break so easily' it sounded like there were aiming to break me in the first place no matter how long it took ...

I would like to know what others might of done or what they think about it, perhaps enough to convince me to do digital every now and then c: ...

Thanks for reading ;u; <3

Warning about Commissions

Hi hi, this is another message to those who did buy a commission off me, turns out information of the commission was also deleted, this counts for any sketch commission or ordinary commissions. Of course I will give as much time needed for everyone who did get a commission from me to read this.
Please note your commission with all its details, I really don't want to miss out on anyone but I had so many stacked up. Please forgive my disorganization ;v;
