Have you ever found an artist who is only 13 and a million times better than you
And they can draw people and have a consistent style and paint digitally better than you...
And then you just want to curl up in a ball of failure and self doubt...

Yes. Minus the curl up into a ''ball of failure and self doubt...''  part. Always try and let those moments make you want to improve more! And continue getting better!
But, yes I know and understand the feeling of seeing someone else's work and feeling like yours can just never match up. (especially when the person performing those works is younger than you...)

Yes because that is my life. Because everyone here on dA is better than me. And none of my adopts sell but my friend's suddenly start selling for a ton of money.

I get so discouraged when I see people like a year older than me who can do 20x the stuff I can

I'm only 13 but I wouldn't say that I'm better than others, tbh my art sucks in my opinion.

I know the feeling but think of it this way. The internet has a lot of resources now back then when we started drawing we had how to draw books and had to figure everything out for ourselves. They will never know the struggle of finding good reference material or learning how to draw by hand and then mouse and then magically finding out about tablets and then struggling to understand programs and then come like a few years ago finding all the glorious SAI tutorials and other amazing programs.

All the time....but you of all people should never feel that way Nova, your art for people and ponies and much much more then that is so amazing...I wasn't even that good at your age! You have a gorgeous and beautiful talent and you should always love it! and I'm not saying there isn't anywere for you to improve no, I know there's always room for improvement for any artist, even the one's that we think have no flaws they more any likely do, there just good at hiding them. Like I am horrible with hands...and humans in general. So I tried to hide that fact by drawing what I can....but feeling failure or self doubt, is something you should never have to feel Nova, your art is gorgeous and it only keeps getting more better and beautiful every time you post something!.
