War requires some ingenuity at times.
Of course every compliment feels good, and I’m thankful for them, but to me, “I like your style” feels probably the best and most rewarding.
I often get “you are talented”, which is of course nice, but I don’t really feel like I deserve to be complimented for it, because talent is unearned.
Sometimes I get “nice job” and others like that complimenting my skills and effort, which is also very nice, but skills are just about practicing, which can be done by anyone… Don’t get me wrong, of course hard work deserves to be rewarded, but it contains nothing from me, and I think an important part of art is that they are kinda part of the artist themselves, and contain a bit of their personality.
But style is something that an artist develops for a long time, by polishing their skills, being influenced by other art, merging different styles together with their own, and always reflecting a part of who they are, and at the end it becomes something new, unique, and recognisable.
So style contains a lot of things, including my effort and a part of me, and it feels amazing that someone likes that mixture.
So thank you for everyone who ever said that to me! :)

I should probably reblog this…

Be sure to look out for the Moon these next few months as it approaches Perigee, because the full moons during these times will appear exceptionally large. The Moon will be at its Perigee, or closest approach, in June 23 and it will reach full moon only a few minutes after it passes this point in its orbit.
These ‘super moons’ not only appear larger because they are physically closer but, combined with a full moon, the mind can play tricks on you to think they are much larger. This phenomena is called the Moon Illusion. Try to catch these full moons as they rise/set because the illusion works when there is an object in the foreground, like a tree, building or mountains.
Some tips I’d like to shareeee.

This is very helpful! ;w;
Fun fact time: many of my old acquaintances still make joking comments whenever they see me wearing pink, because as a child (and honestly pretty much right up to high school) I would refuse to associate with any pink objects.
It wasn’t because I didn’t like pink, it was because since I appeared female I was supposed to/ it was immediately assumed that I did and therefore it pissed me the ever-loving fuck off. I was ashamed to like it, which is terrible because pink is an awesome color. But when you shove it down young girls throats it gets really old, really fast.
Give the child the fucking rainbow, and if they pick pink, it’s not because they are female and/or effeminate, it’s because they like the color pink.
