10,000 is a big number. So I'm amazed that so many people have stopped by my page to see my artwork! I know there's plenty of other artists on here who are into hundreds of thousands or even millions of pageviews but I'm not a professional so it's humbling to see that what I'm doing is being seen and appreciated.
I haven't been on DA for too long but I've noticed a huge improvement in my ability since I've been posting. And I'm positive that all the views, watchs, favs and comments have had a big part to play in spurring me on to improve with each piece and to keep working towards my goal of producing some 'official' Star Wars art.
I've also found it really helpful to be able to see and learn from the amazing artists who show their work here. I'm lucky too that there are also a lot of others who I can rely on for helpful or encouraging feedback. I won't name any names but that's something I never expected when I joined and it's definitely one of the most important things I get from DA.
Thanking you all might take a while so I hope you don't mind me saying it here. I do read every comment and I'm always interested to hear what you all think of my work. So please keep letting me know!
