We've all been there. We all are there. We want to be the best artists possible, we long for so much. But whatever we do, we watch tutorials, learning videos, we watch other artists drawing, we look at our favourite artists and copy them.... we are never as good as they are. 

And this is so frustrating. Improvement takes so long. You struggle and struggle and struggle and your skills don't seem to improve. You download brushes, you try techniques, you literally go mad over all the stuff you do - but at the end your art problems are still there.

Then you see your favourite artists. They have reached what you want. They are maybe famous, they maybe get commissioned by big brands.. they have reached it all.

Dream by wlop

And here now you sit and struggle and nothing works and it feels as if you were constantly running on a floor that runs against your running direction, making you stay where you are, no matter how fast you run.

It's so frustrating.

They know all the stuff that you still have to learn, they have skill, knowledge, intuition and concentration... that's what you think.

But at the same time they are in a similar position as you are. Your favourite artists look up to their favourites, they struggle, they get frustrated themselves, they feel just like you. They see their flaws and it may feel for them as if they wouldn't improve too. They also ask for help, watch tutorials, and draw every single day but seem to stagnate.

You are not alone.

Harmony by ryky

We all feel the same. We all struggle, we all fight, we all take tiny tiny steps into the right direction, maybe without noticing them. It's not only you. It's us all, every serious artist.

We all have cried over artworks we thought to have messed up.

But at the same time many of us have admirers. Some people told me that they look up to me, want to commission me whatever. But all I see are my flaws and I consider myself somewhat beginnerish compared to all the professionals out there. I don't think I would be ready for that. I don't think I deserve such comments. Deep down I kinda don't believe them too.
And that's no understatement. I really, honestly feel like that.

I don't think I am THE favourite artist of anybody... but the fact that a few people like my art shows me that any skill will not change how I feel about art. It will not change my struggles and how I fall into art depressions from time to time. And I have heard similar things from artists who have several thousands maybe millions of admirers. 

At the end... all what counts is that we keep going. We must keep going and overcome the obstacles and difficulties of being artists. No matter if you are at the very beginning of your art journey or travelling for a long time already, all that counts is that you KEEP GOING.

Remember: You are not alone.

Let's improve and struggle together!  :epic: 

Walk with Me by DjamilaKnopf


Side note: The art feaured here displays some of my favourite artists and idols. They are made by wlop ryky and DjamilaKnopf in chronological order.

They struggle too, believe me. I can recall WLOP feeling bad about his art under one of his videos (and everybody in the comments went nuts as in "What??? You are WLOP! You art is godlike!!!!" :D)

Also why do you think "How to feel better about your art" - stuff is like EVERYWHERE on the net? Because it is in huge demand!
