    Comment Addiction Hurrah!!

    As if i need another crutch in my life i have discovered thanks to concept art.org I have a comment addiction.

    Two months ago i started up my daily sketchbook as a way help myself progress both through motivation and receiving Critiques. Well it turns out recently when I get home make my daily dump*giggle* and click submit, I end up sitting there frofing at the mouth waiting for replys... WTf I could be drawing or sleeping but instead i sit at the PC for like half an hour waiting watching my thread slowly get buried under other peoples threads. I think I am developing some kind of new internet attachment disorder and now feel like I might have a fit if i don't get daily Comment fix.... Maybe my mommy didn't give me enough attention as a kid and now i need it from the internet.. I have decided to set a 5 min timer when i post something and I am still sitting there 5 mins later it triggers a bucket of water fall on my head.

    Exaggeration aside anyone else do this or am i just being my regular freaky self???.

    yeah I used to do that, I think when I first began using the website. Was really exciting to think someone might actually comment on your work. Then you find your really not that great anymore, and have to go back to the drawing board.

    It's okay as long as you make it positive. The more you post, the more replies you will get. So even if you don't get one from yesterday, or the day before.. eventually someone will see a large volume of work over only a 3 day period and feel compelled to comment. Turn the need into a source of motivation.

    Heh I am not actually worried, I was just haven a light heart joke about how a shity artist like myself gets a little taste of people looking at his artworks and suddenly expects it to happen everyday. I guess years of drawing only to turn the page or throw your work in the trash compared with suddenly having people looking and commenting its really exciting and a big motivator to try harder just wanted to see if there was others who felt that way, plus i am probly subconsciously hoping to get more comments.

    Saturns gate:Yer dude its funny how after staring at your sketch or piece for a while you start think its a masterpiece than you chuck it in the scanner or what ever and look it as someone else would and all of the sudden your brought back down to earth.

    Actually, I've discovered it's remarkably easy to be psychotic...

    ...it has something to do with having sex with a chainsaw when you were a wee one.

    Well, if you know Ilaekae, which you obviously don't () it's pretty easy to guess what he's thinking. It's just that I choose not to comment on his veggisexual habits.

    I get that way at times when I update my sketchbook. xD

    I haven't updated in a long time even though I got finished with a lot of drawings.

    I guess I'll update it later tonight.

    I did have this one person coming over to check on my sketchbook but I don't know where he went. xD

    Will update sometime soon.
