Hold My Hand by Citarra Hold My Hand by Citarra
This is a pencil drawing I did for the 100 Theme Challenge. [link]
It's #35. Hold My Hand.

The beautiful is the model though I see she has since taken down the image I used for reference. I have others of her in the works so stay tuned!

Great words!

I have some words for you, Vampurity. But they're nothing negative.

You are a beautiful person. Please don't let others destroy that in you, and for you. Make your beauty shine, no matter what they say.

I've had a lot of problems with people too. They seem to see nothing except the negative aspect in life. I tend to enjoy the beauty in people, no matter if they look beautiful on the outside, or hide it away on the inside. Ask Citarra. I'm all about finding hidden things inside of people and bringing them out :)

Don't give up on the people that think you are beautiful and special. You never know when they'll surprise you.

*hugs*

ooooooo my god this is beautiful :faint:
you are amazing, hun :hug:
i'm sorry my stock is pretty much non-existant. i think i might start a new one on sheezyart though. i was just sick of people on deviantart being mean to me. you wouldn't believe some of the things people will say just to make themselves feel better >_< .. it's people like you that remind me why i made a stock site to begin with though. let me know what you think i should do and i'll take it into consideration.

Thank you, I am so glad you like it! :hug:

I am sorry you have had such a bad experience with the people here, I have seen so many wonderful stock artists close down for the very reason you mentioned, that or theft. People really will do and say anything to make themselves feel important, no matter who else it hurts. Remember that the reason they are doing it is because they are insecure and they think that what they say will make them better or more important when really it just shows how pitiful they really are. I used to have a lot of trouble like you with people using me to make themselves feel better and it really got me down, until I read a bit of wisdom from Buddha (I have a book of his teachings that I open on a random page when ever something gets me down and almost always his words fit my situation and I feel better) and this is what he said (paraphrased) about those sort of people: The only people who can hurt you are those you love, because if you do not love them, their opinion is meaningless and do not deserve the time or effort of your worry.

Seems like good advice to me, and it helped me when I was at rock bottom to pull myself up and out of the funk I was in. I know it is hard to ignore what others say about you, it took me 35 YEARS to get over it myself (wish I had gotten that Buddha book as a teenager rather than a thirtysomething), and sometimes somethings still get to me because its from people I thought mattered, but in the end I am a much happier person because I just shake my head and laugh at the pitiful self important people trying to get me down so they can feel good. I am not sure if you are at rock bottom yet, so I don't know if those words will help you so immediately and fundamentally as they did for me, but I hope you remember them and try to let others hurtful words roll off you. I'd like to think those few words can help save you decades of grief if you can take them to heart.

As for advice about your stock, you can either put it back up and ignore the idiots, or put it on a private site and give the address out upon request to those few who you deem worthy of it. The people you hear from that are hurtful are the vocal minority, the silent majority like myself tend to just go along our ways rather than taking the time to spread the good like the others spread the bad. Hmm, this has inspired me... I think I am going to do that very thing, go out and tell others more often why I appreciate them, and I'll start in my journal.

I hope I've helped you at least a little, you are far too beautiful a woman to go through such needless heartaches. If you ever wish to talk, I'm just a note away :)

Thank you Lissy and of course thank you Heidi too! I'm glad you both like it. I enjoyed drawing it... you had to know that I rarely go 'normal ideas' when thinking things up so when I saw the reference photo I knew that's what I would use for Hold My Hand.
