Double Date by BirdhouseIYS
Double Date
I've sat here for 15 minutes trying to think of what I should say about this, but it's just not hitting me.

It came out really good, though, so there's that.

Vivi Orunitia, age 22 by BirdhouseIYS
Vivi Orunitia, age 22
I've been replaying FFIX and rereading Guardian1's amazing fanfiction, Go Not Gently (www.fanfiction.net/s/963803/1/… Read it. Seriously, it's good. Just expect to cry a lot) so I decided to draw that story's version of Vivi, at 22. There are seriously no words for how much I love this game and this fic.

I've been trying really, really hard to keep churning out art, because as people say, it's impossible to get noticed if you're not active. But I feel really drained and I'm just not sure how to handle it anymore. I was contemplating leaving dA for a while (still kind of am) because I'm here for feedback and I never seem to get any. People keep telling me "just draw fanart" but I really don't want to do fanart, I have no motivation to do it and it would just come out forced and not looking good. I tried looking for groups that facilitate feedback, but they were all dead and abandoned.

I know everyone says you should just do art for yourself, but honestly it's extremely difficult for me to get no feedback on the things I work really, really hard on. I know everyone's probably just going to accuse me of being whiny, but I just needed to vent a bit, I guess.

Anyone have any tips for getting more feedback and exposure? Please don't tell me to just draw fanart. That's not what I want to do and I see plenty of artists who don't do any fanart get feedback here.

Changed my mind a bit

I'm not going to leave completely, cause there's still things I like on here, I'll probably just be way, way less active. I'm going to be putting more energy into other things that don't stress me out as much, and if any of you want to sort of keep up with that stuff, it'll be here at these places:

www.fictionpress.com/u/776328/… <<Writing. All my novels and short stories are here.
www.bestestlizerd.tumblr.com/t… <<Art, my WIPs and doodles go here too. As DA doesn't have a great system for those.

Been on dA for nigh on seven years now, and the majority of my 400+ deviations have been fanart up until now. Welp, that changes now! Fanart from me from here on out will be scarce. As will fanfiction. You can find my novels and short stories over at my FictionPress.

About me? I'm a college student, and I like to write, draw, and make stupid jokes. (Did you hear about the fire at the circus? It was in tents.) I like to swear. And I like to eat fried chicken.

And that about sums up my life.
