I recently read

and realized that I've been having the same feelings about myself.
I used to have such excitement about DeviantArt when I first signed up. A fave, comment and such would always excite me. But nowadays...meh. I'm thinking about taking a break from browsing around here and such. I won't stop drawing of course...But honestly, I'm beginning to think that I've been posting all this art up here for nothing. Perhaps I should treat my account as a portfolio instead of a gallery.
I've been having the same feeling concerning my YouTube account Blast Off! Brothers. It's been almost two years since I started posting videos there and frankly...this may sound arrogant and a tad selfish to you guys, but I don't think I'm getting the recognition I deserve. Sounds a bit egotistic no?
The thing is, I was excited when I found great YouTube filmmakers like Wong Fu Productions, Corridor Digital, MysteryGuitarMan and many others. It gave me some sort of hope that more people would be able to view the films my friends and I work really hard on. But unfortunately, despite working several weeks (sometimes months) on these videos, all I get are a hundred views and at best four comments. Some videos are lucky and get a thousand. But rarely the ones I really commit a lot of time and effort on.
Of course, YouTube was never my motive for filmmaking. I do film because I absolutely love it. But I just think that I'm posting in vain. I'm thinking about stopping the whole YouTube thing altogether. I dunno...Maybe I just feel discouraged right now.
Anyway, if you guys read this, feel free to comment and call me an ungrateful guy. Hahaha...Kidding. I just felt like word spilling.
Hopefully, I feel more inspired and encouraged in the days to come.
Your placid walrus tooth,
