I think so many artists are pressured and break down under so many expectations so I'm really glad that you were ale to overcome it C: Keep drawing~
Here's a quote I thought you might like, and that I hope will inspire you: "Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia." - Kurt Vonnegut. That being said, I really do love your art! Keep on drawing!
