annoying idiots be like ''omg why cant i be as good as xxxx?? why dont i improve?? my art/writing/yyyy sucks so much :((( '' 90 percent of their time and it's awful.

i hear this a lot among my ... ''why-do-i-hang-out-with-you friends'', sadly the only artists in my small area.
a bunch of whining and no improvement, and their facebook art pages are mostly text about their lack of experience and fishing for compliments instead of investing the time into practice

honestly, if you want to become better at something - practice
whining ain't gonna make you better at it
it just makes you look dumb and pretentious

take the time and do something useful instead, it can't be that hard

I've been practicing my drawing for 22 years and it's still terrible...so I got into 3D computer art instead. ;)

Pardon my French but I want this shit on my grave,, oml I cannot TELL you how sick I am of hearing people complain about not improving and going on to do nothing to improve,, like jfc nobody improves overnight, just take a freakin' chill pill and instead of w h i n i n g?? keep working at it, look at tutorials, challenge yourself, whatever, just put in some effort for once you lump of pudding

Actually just hearing people complain over and over and not doing anything to solve the problem is one of my biggest pet peeves,, like if you're cold instead of complaining go get a blanket

A lot of young artists are like this and I wish they didn't think that. They're great artists nonetheless~! It's just different from others and they can ask for criticism if they really want help~!

Note to other learning artists: Please don't complain to your idols and ask them instead to help. If you're too shy, look up anatomy studies and photos references. Try to award yourself every time you make any small improvement you make in your style. Don't back down and doubt yourself. Art isn't meant for fame but for pleasure~! I hope I at least helped you a little bit. I'm not an expert as well~!

My mother keeps asking me things like "Why are you drawing this, are you going to sell it!?" "Will you earn money if I buy you that graphics tablet?!" 
So I guess that went deep into my head and I'm trying my best to get fame..

I hate when someone says their art is horrible and they always post on da. Like why post it if you don't like it?

Maybe they're trying to get critiqued but don't know or want to ask.

Even us lifelong artists post pieces we're not proud of to have constructive criticism given to understand how we can improve.

Exactly, and it's so annoying. Don't sit there and whine like a little shit, get the fuck up and improve yourself. I ain't sugarcoating this shit because I've heard this too many times and it's not gonna do anything if I sugarcoat it. And the people who say this stuff at me usually don't do art very often, then they expect a masterpiece? Fuck off.

(Sorry for the excessive swearing, I used to be one of these people (fortunately, not anymore) and I'd see others do the same.)

I used to be friends with someone who ALWAYS complained about her drawing.

When I tried to help, she got annoyed I was "criticizing" her.
UUUUGH

Despite my spats with you in the past, I wholeheartedly agree with this stamp.

Thank You for saying this much, since it seems that those people spend more time whining than actually finding ways to improve!

(and I get the impression that a lot of them are also the same ones who complain about people using refs....How can they expect to improve, without using some kind of reference at some point or another??  )

Without a reference, I can't draw a person for my life. You have to learn what it looks like before you can draw it from memory, don't you?

Definitely yes, and drawing people is something I sometimes dread (I hate drawing feet and hands....guess that's why feet aren't usually seen in my pics)
