Well, if I've learned anything over the past 4 days is don't think your terrible and let those thoughts fester and turn into some hate filled inner-rage. Just do your best and everything will take care of itself.
Believe me, Simpspin, I understand where you're coming from. I suffer from clinical depression, and am where you describe most of the time. The question is, are you doing these pics for you, or for the adulation of the masses? Based on the number of comments your work usually generates, and the feelings you're describing, I would guess the former.
Most of the things I've put up have generated little, if any. comments. It's a little disheartening, and I agree, sometimes it does seem like a big pornhub on Da at times. That's because of the artists, not Da itself though. Do I stop putting things up here? Hell no. I don't plan to either. I'm working on some stories for DA that will hopefully fly big, once I get my own book into the publisher.
I would personally feel it a great loss if you quit, and I hope that you don't. I'm a big fan of your creation of Maggie and Eric (Eric a little more so, cuz he's newer than Maggie), and I would truly hate to see it end.
I let a lot of personal crap fill my soul this past 4 days and this picture is a culmination of me not thinking clearly about myself, and the purpose of this site. For a while, I was only doing this for the adulation, but then I realized I'm not making myself happy if I'm not doing this for me and blaming others for my shortcomings is totally childish as it is useless.
Today, I had my life snap back to reality and that's when I realized this past weekend was a total clusterfuck. I didn't just burn bridges here--I napalmed them and killed a very important friendship in the process. You should read my new journal update to see what happened and how my real emotional state is.
