If I knew then what I knew now, maybe I might have appreciated my work a little more.
I always used to compare myself to the other artists that I would see, artists much older than me, with the training and the experience I didn't have. It didn't seem to matter to me where they came from, just that they where good and I was not. If I had understood at the time that someday, with perseverance, study and practice that I too might be ask good as them, maybe I might have worked a little harder, studied a little more and not been so down on myself.
Now I look back on a lot of the artists who were my idols, megabytes worth of their art saved to my ancient drive in the basement for reference and inspiration. I realize, they really weren't that good. Some of them were actually quite bad. At any given time, if your art sucks to you or even thousands of other people, it is amazing to someone and you are inspiring someone else by sharing it with them.
If it seems like you are not improving at all
Wow I'm really not active on this D:
Thank you for all the faves I've gotten lately. If you're a new watcher, sorry I don't update much (understatement) but most of what I've done is unfinished or just sketches, and I don't think you guys would be interested in those.
So I'm on sick leave at the moment 'cause I had some epic surgery. Doing alright now, but still need a while for my ab muscles to strengthen again. I now have a six inch scar from my belly button down. Crazy times.
I'm going to be at the hq London devMeet today. So if you're going I look forward to seeing you there!
It's apparently my Birthday on Thursday(?) not sure how that came around so fast O_o.
Aaaand I'm going to be going to Denmark soon, any suggestions on where to go?
This has been the briefest of brief updates.
