I've just seen a lot of really good artists lately who express how much they hate their own art...I feel like it's even more common for artists who have real skill, and real potential, and even a considerable fan base who tell them time and time again how amazing their work is. I've definitely heard this before but lately it's been catching my attention and I just don't understand why or how someone could get into that mindset.... 
I can understand bullying or lack of feedback, but this doesn't seem to happen nearly as often to those who draw for fun/whatever they like. It seems to happen mostly to genuinely popular and skilled artists, and it just really makes me sad. At the worst of times, I've felt that I could improve on my art but I never disliked or hated it. At the best of times, I've considered creating art a real emotional/spiritual outlet for me and couldn't imagine doing anything else. 
What's the point of making art if it makes you feel bad about yourself?

Don't hate your own artwork guys. It isn't about what other people think, or what it looks like, it what the subject is, or what your weaknesses are, or any of that. Art should be a fun hobby that you enjoy, even if you do it completely alone and don't show anyone else but yourself. I did that for several years and now fully enjoy sharing art with others online. 

And seeing how close art is to me, and how much it's helped me mentally/emotionally all these years, it just breaks my heart when it does the opposite for others. I guess I just don't understand it...? Have confidence in yourself guys, sometimes it's all you have to get through.
