I've been encouraging my friends and younger schoolmates to get back drawing. It was HARD!! Really hard to get someone to get back to what they've stopped doing. I know they liked drawing and I saw talent within them, that's why I kept telling them to have fun with it.
AND THEN, someone had to ruin it with "Why are your line arts so messy?" "I don't like this, I don't like that" "The anatomy is too awkward" "What's wrong with his eyes" blah blah.
It discouraged them.
Okay, you may draw better than them, but that doesn't mean you can comment on the arts you don't like. Many times it can hurt the artists specially the beginners who had no courage in doing art. They might just stop it because they don't want to receive comments like that.

For the Free-LoaderHello, loved one.
You hired me. You said my art was good, you appealed to my pride and I accepted your request.
But listen here, freeloader. I didn't do that work in a couple of days, or hours, or minutes. I did it in a couple of years. Yes, years. I had to work on your image through grade-school, through grade 3 and grade 4. Dragon Ball Z helped paint your fucking purple unicorn, and your god damn bridge, Escaflowne and Lord of the Rings helped me design your idiot Dr. Who tattoo. I worked on your image through bullying and lonely recesses, and times when I sat on the washroom toilet with my sketchbook waiting out lunch hour. I stole printer paper from the computer room to paint your commission, and got sent to the office for it. I didn't do homework throughout grade-school to finish your commission for you.
Your moronic flying fairy? I painted it through high-school when all I had were my led pencils and 50 dollars in savings for a tablet that I had to spend buying
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
