I don't want to missjudge you or say something wrong... but if you love art really really much - and I believe you do - then you do it for yourself. Not to get the attention of you friends. I have to say my friends don't even really know how much I draw. I know they wouldn't be interested in it because it's mainly fan art they don't care about. I had some problems with this in the past but since I joined dA it's no problem anymore. I can discuss about these kind of stuff with the people here and enjoy other things with my "real-life friends"
Anyway, I read in an other journal of you that you're going to study art, right? Believe me you will find some people there who actually care about your talent and interest
I care for every one of your pieces of gorgeous artwork and don't even try saying no one cares because you have talent. I love marveling at every piece of your artwork and I know your a really nice person that everyone loves and cares about.
And if you feel like no one cares then make sure that you know I care greatly.
Come on, your art is deserving a LOT! I may not be as good as you, but i still like my art, so you have to do the same! Be the top for yourself and not for the others! Keep it up!!! Keep making art for yourself and if you really show it, the people will be looking at every piece everyday! Cheer up!
