This is a slightly optimistic quote I came up with because, like many other artists, I get really frustrated and fed up with my art on many occasions.

I start getting all down on myself and my artwork and I tell myself how shitty and awful it is. I then begin to wonder what value anyone sees in my art and I keep telling myself that I CAN'T draw at all. But in fact, the reality is that I CAN draw... I just sometimes can't draw how I would LIKE to.

I'm sure many artists have felt poorly of their artwork simply because they cannot draw how they would LIKE to be able to. But seriously, you're not a fail for such reasons. And you don't suck at art and your art ISN'T crappy and useless and hideous and etc! YOU can draw, ANYONE can draw! Just don't go hating on your artwork simply because you expect so much more from it.

Besides, we all have to start somewhere with our art, and only in time and with lots of practice will it get any better. So please try not to hate on your artwork, and instead, see the beauty in it. Point out the things you like and make note of what you would like to change. (: With time, patience, determination, and lots of cold hard practice, you CAN draw how you would LIKE to draw! Seriously. But improvement doesn't happen overnight. D: Unfortunately.

So anyway, be kind to yourself and your artwork, everyone. Have a fantastic day~!

I doubted my self when drawing. But hey. If it's too hard. You just gotta make it simple.
My style of drawing is BUILT on this. I don't make poses well however. And I just feel like copying if I use a reference... Thanks for this stamp.

I can totally relate to you, as I'm sure many other artists can too D: It's okay, just keep at it! I feel the same way about references, but it really isn't copying. If you use references to help with your anatomy and posing but make the photo "your own", you're making it unique and still learning. The next time you try to draw that pose that you referenced from, I bet you'd be able to understand better how to draw it WITHOUT the reference ^^ References are good [: And you're very welcome for the stamp! ^^

My story on that stamp :lol: You're not alone. Quite a lot of us can't put down on paper/canvas/whatever what's in our minds or the style we want. (even the best, famous artists feel this way. They are at times their own worst critics.)

Yesss, that's exactly it a lot of the timeee! D: You really think famous artists feel that way too? S: I guess maybe sometimes, but definitely not as much... I would think, anyway d:

Oh you'd be amazed. If you're an artist, you have doubts...sometimes. No artist is completely confident. They're lying if they say they are. ^^; All artists are human. They have the same "are my arts going to be accepted as art or booed off the stage?" feeling as anyone else. Go around the Net and read what other artists have to say.
One young man went to learn piano under a master's care. He said "Master, why is it the music sounds MUCH better inside my head than when it comes out my fingers?"
The master replied: "Oh, and do you think that ever changes?" (See--the master knew that too. I guess we can be too hard on ourselves. :blushes:) (The young man was named David Bayles...who co-wrote "Art & Fear"...a book about artists and their doubts. Worth a read.)
