They aren't better than you.I don't soapbox often, but I feel the need to say something to all my fellow artists... because I've had to struggle with this, and I know many (if not all) of you do, too.They aren't better than you.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Being on a site like this, with so much collaboration and so many artists of different styles and skills, can be both great and terrible for artists. Like myself, you probably have artists that you follow because they inspire you, because you 'wish you could draw as well as them'. It's impossible to draw without inspiration from something, and it's very hard to improve if you don't have examples for you to learn new techniques and ways to approach art.
But as easy as it is to find inspiration here, it's even easier to find discouragement.
I'm not surprised artists are statistically some of the most depressed people, for several reasons. The first is that, especially for those who do art for money, we have the issue of having so much stress placed on us because everything we do is going to be scrutinized and evaluate

I believe that Minecraft is the future of massive multiplayer games, and I'm surprised that none of the big developers/publishers have cottoned onto it yet.
They look at Minecraft and think its success is down to its business model, or to its blocky, retro charm.
It's down to the fact that you get out of it what you put into it.
With a MMORPG, there are pre-scripted quests. With Minecraft, you set the quests yourself or others.
User created content is the key. All you have to do is provide the players with the tools to build.
There are two types of gamer: wall builders and wall breakers.
Wall builders are the ones that spend an age in an RTS game getting their base just right. They play SimCity and act as Dungeon Master during an RPG.
Wall breakers are the type to follow the mission brief. They get set a quest and they follow it. They're the Call of Duty crowd and they're never more happy than when
