I was very much at first. It was like putting yourself out there in your most vulnerable state. My art work has always been very personal and I had not shared it with a lot of people. But DA has been an amazing confidence booster and now I welcome constructive comments. Although I have been fortunate and have not run into anyone who has been ruthless in their comments. I am always learning and hope I have improved.
Tha fact is that I like doing things that others could appreciate. So I'm always a fan of my little babies, even those which came out not so good. I hope they can push their way through! I mean, not in a "popularity contest" type of thing. I simply know they want some love.
