Gotta say that's a bigass insecurity for me...or at least one of many bigass insecurities I have. You draw so much better than me in clever, creative and fun ways? Y-yeah...that's okay, you've had more practice and all---- but seeing teens who haven't properly hit puberty yet be way further in life than me just makes mah stomach drop. "B-but, KYA, ya'll r young too, ur like only a few years older than those prodigy artists :0" Yeh, but when I was 13 I couldn't draw shit for life. I already deleted most of my 13-year-old gallery because, oh Lord, dat shit wuz ew. Who knows where these kids will be in 3 years... 
If ya'll are a 13/14 year old prodigy who draws like an adult with thousands of watchers in less than a year---- just go home, find an agency to exploit yer talents, become a millionaire and spit on my grave when I die from eating food off the ground :,>

//yes, I am dramatic :I Being lesser makes me feel so bad. I mean this applies to everyone who is a bit younger than me and draws even a little bit better than me. Everyone. I am incapable of feeling happy for others because I am too busy feeling shitty about myself. I have so many bad traits I really need to work on >_>;

That horse I drew looks like it's in pain :XD:

I'm 13 and i think my art sucks
Have seen a 9 year old drawings and animating better than me while i can't even do tail or arm movement without making it look weird and then i see those 9-13 year olds on YouTube who have the quality and motivation to make TV worthy cartoons

I rarely get compliments and stuff and i see other people being praised

mmhm, I turned 20 some time ago and I have officially started feeling old in a mathematical way. Galois died at 20 and his work is so important that he basically started the study of group and field theory (two big branches in Abstract Algebra). It makes me wanna hide in my room and die in a fire on a burning pile of all my math textbooks.

I freaking die inside when I hear about those old geniouses that made history at age 5. J-just no, freaking aliens visited Galois and gave him all that knowledge, there is no other explanation that would keep me sane.

I feel like there are many skills I will never be able to develop well just because I started too late.

And some you'll never develop well even if you started early.

I didn't mention that his name appears in Galois theory too, and "Galois Theory" is a course that every graduate student in mathematics take at year 1.
And Abel died at 26. He did most of his work during age 20-26. Regarding his work, Charles Hermite said, "Abel has left mathematicians enough to keep them busy for five hundred years."

Oh and another mathematical tidbit: Nicolò I. Paganini (not that violinist) discovered the second pair of Amicable Numbers when he was 16. 140 years later, his name is still printed in popular books of number theory.
In 140 years our graves are going to rot to dust.

I know this feel sometimes :)
but if you know someone who is younger than you and draws better,you shouldn´t despair...You can learn from them actually and this is a start on how to improve some skills.
Also....some Art styles look better than the others...it´s a subjective thing tho...so you shouldn´t despair because of this either...
In my opinion, I honestly think your artstyle looks very eyecatching :D

I don't know. I used to be able to just "know" how to draw things quickly and freehanded. Now I gotta focus on what I'm doing.

What is it about being a young moron that gives you drawing ability?
