Meri. Reading your WBY post broke my heart. I’m sorry I’m just seeing it now, but I am so, so, so sorry for what your aunt said to you. I’m not just saying this ‘cause we’re friends, but your art is so incredible. Every single piece. Whether it’s one of your rainbow pencil sketches, one of your chibis or an entry you do for an event, everything you make is so uniquely beautiful. Everything from the colour palettes you use and your highlighting and shading is beautiful. I don’t know what pieces you showed your aunt, but I know without a doubt she was wrong. Please never let anyone make you feel anyone less than talented and incredible, aunt or not, because you are talented and incredible.
