Confidence in your Talent
The thing I see most often among young or amateur artists is people doubting themselves. I read dA comments or comments on tumblr underneath the art (or wherever it's posted) about "oh but the face is bad" or "I screwed up the folds" or such things.
There's a thing I learned in Art School, and it is something that has helped me to become a much more daring and confident artist overall. And that is about your attitude towards your own art.
We were told never to point out to other people the failings in your own art, even if you can see failings. Just present the work and let other people make their own opinions.
Keep the 'bad things' private and work on them to get better.
This is for several reasons.
The most obvious one is the more professional side of things. No one will hire an artist who is not positive and confident about their own work. You wouldn't get a job at the supermarket if you wrote on your resume that you were excellent at scanning items but find the customers a bit irri

I got a new contest of GLAM! What is the theme you ask? Well VIDEO GAMES! Who doesn't love video games? There are a lot of new games that have come out recently or are coming out soon. So what I want you to do is doll a character or your own OC from a game. \o/ 

Video Games Deadline is December 31st! So you have plenty of time to make a doll.

Also note awards for Inspired by Moths contest will be coming soon.

I'm obsessed with argyle and palm trees. I love my OC's too much. I love to read. I love music. I love pretty much all things fantasy. I love history.
