I'm really starting to feel unattached to my own art...

I know people say don't compare cause ya know all artists do thing differently, have different styles, do different things ect ect
But honestly
When ever certain people upload I feel so shit about my work that I just really don't want to post or draw much ;-;
It's not their fault obviously just kinda feeling down about myself I guess ;-; so my da and insta will probably be p dead for a while until I can work through this ;-;

I hope I dun make you feel you that way, cause I used to draw just like you. That's what made me contact you the day we met lol
I was really nostalgic and happy and am really enjoying watching you grow and improve :D 
You are still developing your style. You'll get there and find the groove :]
(Also- I really hope I don't make you feel like that cause I feel the same way when I look at other people's work ><
I have quit art a few times now because I feel like I'm just not good enough.
Self doubt comes with the territory when you're an artist lol)
I'm here to cheerlead you cause I love your arts :D

IM SO AWFUL OMFG I SO SORRY I NEVER REPLIED, everytime I tried I just lost the ability to ..word ..

It's okay though, it's probably always going to happen on and off
it's not you particularly, I see a lot of people who are so talented, and especially when they're also so much younger than me and I think with anyone it might make you question yourself a bit ya'know? ^.^'

Heh thank you, I do the same with people so I know what you mean
I see people who are maybe beginners in drawing but there's always something unique and special that makes me think 'The more you work on it all, I can tell you're going to create amazing things and it's going to be different ..not like everyone else'

Yeah, I keep looking back on my own work still (I have ALL my old art books from school in a container under my bed) and When I go through them I can see the change, I can see where I realised it didn't look 'right' and I worked on it. One of my favourite things is comparing sona designs, not only can I see my change in design over the years I can also see the difference in style and It's just kinda nice for me to look at. I know now, I'm still constantly changing things and trying stuff out and honestly I think that sometimes I just ..forget where I started and it gets to me ...
that and how quickly other people improve compared to me ..I've always been ..slow in most things and art is no different, my style changed at a slow rate and some people seem to just change and improve so quickly and idk that kinda gets me down a bit sometimes ya'know? .-.

I realised now that's just going to happen, I'm going to have spells of self harted in my work, I'm going to want to stop drawing, I'm going to hate what I make but, I'll see it through, I'll work around it eventually ^.^

Again, I'm really sorry this is late but when I read this for the first time just made me happy, supported and liked and for nthat I thank you, Your words lifted my spirit so much that ..I just felt reassured having this message in my inbox to look back on,Just knowing someone can see me evolving and is enjoying what I do ..that's enough for me ..thank you :heart:
