Somebody liked one of my older pieces at Facebook, and oh I got all nostalgic... Hah, memories.
I remember how shy I used to be at fist, back when I just started to discover all the art communities and the artists dwelling there. As much as I admired them and wanted to be like them, I also felt really scared to show my own work.
So to those of you still hesitating:
Put yourself out there!
Just do it. The sooner the better. I've been posting my artwork since 2002(I was 16), and I actually wish I did it sooner. You'll never get fully satisfied with your work, so the right time when you're ready will never come ;) Plus, the feedback you can get from people viewing and commenting is absolutely priceless.
To all of you who's been sticking around since my early years - Thank You. You helped me improve, and you still are!
