Well, I would like to say thank you all who helped me out during this state of unsure thought. You really expressed to me that you weren't just saying what you thought, and that I can still do well. Just so you know, I am not going to leave DA, and I was never thinking of doing so in the first place.
I don't care what those other jerks said, even if there were a bunch of them. Everyone has their own "tastes," and saying those things about me just because theirs differs from mine is not very good. I'm still a very nice person at heart, and I still try to improve when I can. And many franchises have multiple levels or ways of enjoying it, and I should be free to enjoy it in whatever way I want. There's truly no "wrong reason" to like something, you either like it or you don't like it. And even if I can't think of any original ideas, so what? I don't expect to make money off my works, or anything like that, and I don't mind that either.
Overall, I now feel a lot better about myself, and I am not going to let a whole ton of others saying those things about me let me down. I'm not going to quit anytime soon, I don't quit easily, and I'm certainly not going to quit here yet. I'm surprised of all the friends I've met through my art and such, and I have to say thanks to all of you for assisting me with your advice and views in this time. Thank you all so much!!!
Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful time.
