I did this sketch about.... 9 months ago? That pencil drawing was done on flight from LGA for my friend =Rawliett as a gift. I've met her a couple years ago as a watcher of my works through DA but now we are brilliant irl friends with amazing, passionate travel plans :>

I really cherish that unique opportunity on devART where I've met many fantastic people and artists, not mentioning online but with many of them I've became friends with till now. Friendships and connections which I greatly value. I could write how it is fantastic just tons of pages…. literally a book.
Every person which I've met and experienced the time with them was an unique chapter of the story because one person I've met locally and another which was thousands of miles away! Every person which I've met, was from a different cuture and has shown a piece of their world which I witnessed. It was so magical, I felt like I was travelling in the time.

I very treasure all friends which I've met through devART and became irl ones. Like naturally I feel knowing them since ever, not just empty, virtual online people.

Where that person lives, if that's about a few miles or thousands- it's regardless. When destiny will show a brilliant light (a friendship/connection) and will build a rainbow bridge that our meeting will happen. As long both sides want. I always want. I don't see a distance. Unlike many people who question "oh how is possible!", I see a rainbow bridge.

"Can I be friends with u???" "no, u can't!"

Many people think that usually good artists only want to be friends with good one… aka "elitist" circle- but no, that's just a stereotype I think. Especially for me that's how it is. For me it's really regardless if you are just a watcher, popular artist or amazing artist.
I've met and became friends in person with many brilliant artists and as well watchers… actually, I think more amazing friends I have are watchers than artists.

All what determines… is the connection. I believe there is some kind of energy in the universe. To simply put, the best way is to be "yourself" and be natural person. I've seen so many people who pursued to be friends with me because of selfish benefits such like (OMG I'm friends with awesome artist!!one11) or if people are looking blindlessly for my art not me as a human or treat me like higher than by themselves they are (being as a minors on their own wish) which naturally threw me off and I never became friends with any of these. Of course to be a fan of someone's works is okay but what determines is the interest with that person behind the pictures. Artist but view as a human. A human which may be right for you or not.

So simply to say, it's impossible to be friends so straightly asked "can we be friends?" where a friendship is natural (and long!) process of building bonds, which involves many unexpected events to strike happen to build a bond between people. It's like a chemistry. Friendships so straightly asked without any process is a fake friendship. Pretendful one. It's very much same like you find a pretty girl on a street and walk to her by saying "can we become lovers?"?
All questions "can we become friends" I will treat like someone is straightly asking me if I can love someone so suddenly. And pursuing for friendship with artist because is popular/awesome artist will end as awful experience for people.

PS: That's what I miss today on devART. I find there are much less value interactive people with glimpse of humanity, passion and a living soul behind computer like it was before.

my art stinks. Yours does not. (omg its AWESOME!!!!!!) It doesn't actually make sense that we could be friends, because people like to make friends with those who can relate to them. You get my point?????

yeah, i am friends with those who are better drawers in certain ways i am, and those who they know and i know they suck at drawing. everyone forgets sometimes that art isn't perfect.

Ok thats just rude. don't say that!! no one sucks at drawing, they just are lower leveled or less advanced or even have different styles.
