- If someone actually requests my art into a group gallery.
- If I'm entering a contest and it's required to be part of the group's gallery.
- If it's one of the only four groups I'm an admin of.
I've come to realize that I've become far too focused on statistics. My older pictures garnered much more attention than anything I've put out this year despite the vast improvements I've made and in desperation, resorted to adding my pictures to as many groups as I possibly could in hopes of recreating the success of my older pictures. I know that it was a pretty shameless and desperate thing to do and I'm glad I'm finally able to admit this not just to myself, but to all of you. This resolution will no doubt result in a giant drop in the usual number of favorites and comments I receive, though that's exactly what I want. There are people on this site 100x more talented than me and who actually put out art on a regular basis as opposed to my unmotivated and random schedule who don't get anywhere near the amount of recognition I've gotten. This way, people will find my art if they want to find it rather than having it force fed to them through their inbox. This is my early New Year's Resolution and I vow to stick to it.
