I just started publishing my first few fan fics on here and I felt a bit silly when I realized how incredibly cutesy and sappy they are ._. But I've totally embraced it If cute things make you feel happy than by all means, go for it!
And in response to previous comments I have depression too, its probably the most common form of mental illness, if not illness in general.
Art is a wonderful way to take control of it. Cheers <3
Everyone does. Studies show drawing especially happy things will actually release serotonin from the brain and therefore make you happy. And this work is fantastic! I just love anything Fluttershy/Discord.
Thank you so much X3 I tend to feel down every now and then so I really enjoy drawing things like, especially when I'm down. So that's very interesting to know! And me too X'3 I love these two together, even though I don't ship them. They're so cute just as friends!
Well it seems to be effecting the recent generations. within the 20 year range for sure. Kids just have no idea how good they have it. give them an indoor bathroom, they still not happy. TV in there room? they still complaining. I don't know what they expect to get out of life. But for it to happen with so many, makes me wonder what changed to make them depressed all the time. Maybe the lose of poupous in life? I don't know. Well good luck on it.
Bullies is one thing. It will never matter how good you have it, bullies and other things like peoples death can still effect you. My friend recently had depression and cut hurself...... for a while..... she's better now though.
Sometimes I feel I should try drawing something less fluffy and more dramatic like I use to, but I can't always think of something that would actually have substance to it and won't just be gloomy for the sake of being gloomy.
then don't worry about it since for now it's not a job. do what you feel comes naturally and your art comes out better for it. do the dynamic or gloomy when you feel inspired for that route. for now that's what i do
haha. we all feel that way but you improve regardless given enough time. and your art will always come out better when you do something you feel inspired for. compare a piece you had to do compared to one you wanted to do and you'll see a notable difference
