Self-taught special snowflake gais by Chasing--Echoes Self-taught special snowflake gais by Chasing--Echoes
Requested by ~animangaluver-melody.

"I just feel like many of the proclaimed "self-taught artists" blatantly brag about how they're self-taught...You know? It's like, wowww good for you, you're so special; you deserve a medal. No really, please tell me more about how you're so special and different from the rest of us //sarcasm"

I see nothing wrong with being a taught artist and receiving help. The "self-taught" artists shouldn't boast about how they're self taught or put others down because they're not :stare:"

She makes a really good point. Being a self-taught artist doesn't make you a special snowflake. If you know anything about me, you'll know that I highly respect the people that have had to work and struggle and require assistance for their skill in whatever it is they do, be it art, writing, whatever. The people who've taught themselves are cool and all, but the people who struggle are to be respected.

Please do not think of this as being an attack on self-taught artists. They are to be respected, as well, especially if they've had to work hard to become good at art.

Aw...well I wish I had money to pay for classes.

But being self-taught doesn't mean we don't need any help, just that we can't pay for it xDDD. At least in my case

It looks lovely! Thanks so much! :love:

I have nothing against self taught artists unless they have special snowflake complex and put others down :U

I'm glad you like it! ; u ;
I feel like I should've changed the font color. It was hard to read, but then when I added the drop shadow to make it easier, it became hard to see the background. :iconpapmingplz:

crais, I hate it when people do that--For anything, really, not just art.
