So...  Last image I posted I had a lot of people saying I should just post my stuff...  But most of it is crap, experimentation, or just failure stuff, kinda like this.  But, I said I would avoid my own opinion and post it anyway so you're gonna have to let me know if you want me to continue or if now that you see stuff like this you would prefer I only post things I don't really hate.

Dude, your style is an acquired taste... but no one can deny... you are one heck of an artist, I've said this before in you vids... you should make a freaking book about figure simplification... You are awesome! Keep em coming!

well but this is really cool :) I'm always super happy to see your stuff in my inbox!

I think a piece of artwork is only finished when viewed by someone

That's nice, if you want to see real bad stuff posted look at my gallery, I kind of like none of my stuff... well I just see all the flaws and the things I have to improve after each piece... I guess it's the same for all the artists with an eye that is a little more advanced than their skills....

Oi oi! Don't have that attitude! A wise person told me once; '' If you don't appreciate your work, why should anyone else? ''. Now think about those words and practise the things you lack in. Instead of thinking such negative thoughts, think about the things that you can do and move on from there! My art isn't perfect either, heck, I always see flaws. But even so I'm determined to get better. Even the least bit of improvement matter. I try to see things positively since that's the most important thing.

if you're not motivated then how will you find the inspiration to improve? :)

Thank you for the kind words, it is not as bad as it sounds :) I am not hating what I do, it is just that I am never really satisfied. I mean I have a vision, and my technic is not there yet. I'm very motivated though, I draw everyday, and I think I improve, slowly but surely.
So I am positive, like, motivated, but I still think I have a lot to improve :) is that making sense?

Yeah it totally makes sense! At least to me, I'm the same. In my head I'm like: ''This is an awesome idea! Draw it! Draw it! '' 
Then I draw it and my skills end up being my limitation instead of lifting me higher, which makes me unmotivated. 

But we can do it! Toons of practise and a good spirit! Naruto Dancing

I heard a quote recently : You should be happy to fail, because each failure is one step further toward success... the important thing is to keep going''


Toons of practice haha

Exactly! As Bob Ross said ''There are no mistakes, only happy accidents.''

Even if it's not something you like very much, it's really intriguing and inspiring for us to see the things you make. You've got a very unique style, and even if you're having an off-day you'll still create something that no one else is creating.

And it's always okay to post things you're not too proud of because we all know you're a capable artist. Just because you make one bad painting it does not mean you're a bad artist! (And I'm not saying this is bad at all, I always liked seeing your colour scheme variations!)

As long as you post often, I really don't care what you post, cuz all your pointy stuff is awesome! To me anyway. Like I said before, Ilove those crazy proportions just as much as you do. Sexy ladies, Action guys, animals...outrageous proportions are just fun dude!! More pleeeease!! ^ U ^

Naaah, It's cool.

I've got the same king of struggle with posting stuff I don't really like myself and I don't like the most part of my stuff, so I have something like 3 pieces in my gallery ))
But yours is so clean and nice so it's just shame to have it buried in your desk. I'm not the one who have right to tell you that, but one of the biggest things out there is consistency, so the more you post the more people you attract to you art, the more responce you have, the faster your style evolve etc etc.

I personally really enjoy to see the evolution of your art. So keep going, keep sharing!

Always cool to see alternate versions of a character in color, it's interesting to see the process of trial and error, it's all part of design/illustration and it's
just fascinating to see what earlier considerations were being put into place.

Overall, fantastic work!

She has the perfect body type for a satyr.

As for the self-esteem thing, there's one artist I follow, he said this a while back, he said, "Are you kidding, my fan base is so big I could upload a picture of my foot and it'd still get like 60likes." While he said it in gest , it occurred to me he was right. I'm not saying your fan base would let you slack off, but we do wanna see your stuff lol
