This is one of my newest ones, even though it was done in March, I think. The scanner really whiped out all the contrast and detail. I might rescan it and try to fix the problem a little bit if it's worth it.

This is great. I love the way she/he blends in with the leves and brances, and how you did the leaves individually. That must have taken a long time and a lot of determination.
I read your bio, and I am sorry that the rude commments of insensitive children and stupid adults has hurt you so deeply. It is a pity that they were not taught better by their parents to respect others, and to keep thier bitterness hate and discontent to themselves.
Do not give up your art if it is your passion. Do not fear the hurtful words of people who do not have the skill, intelegence, or passion to create.
If you are anything like me, you create because you must, and also because it brings you joy to give life to the things in your head, even if that life is only on paper.
Please do not despair.
Rejoice that they had enough jealosy to actually take the time and energy to spew thier vile vomit ontoyour comments page.
Besides... IF you do not like thier coment, you can just delete it...
I would hate to see you go.

:-) H Viola replies: "Oh, I wasn't hurt by the comments. I was just sick of being critiqued on work that no longer reflects my skill. I've improved since then and I want to be judged on what I can do now and be given suggestions on new work rather than work I did in high school. The comments weren't discouraging, just annoying. I also just laugh at pointless troll comments (like 'u suck stop drawing') rather than take them personally.But thanks for your nice comment and concern. "
