on comparing fan artists
i know i'm gonna catch some shit for this but
hey! did you know that a lot of artists don't like it when you compare their stuff to someone else's stuff - specifically when you compare their stuff to that of their peers, say another fan artist from the same fandom? i know you probably (hopefully???) mean it as a compliment (or at the very least don't mean anything bad by it), but at best it comes off as suggesting the person is "just" unoriginal, and at worst it comes off like you're accusing them off copying someone else and trying to pass it as their own. fan artists are conditioned from the very beginning to know that there's nothing worse than copying someone and trying to pass it off as your own, and one of our biggest fandom-related fears is that we accidentally do that, so being accused/implied to have done so is Really Hecking Bad.
and to be perfectly honest? stuff like gangster/mafia scenarios, pirate scenarios etc. are not super original, so it's perfectly possible for severa

How to feel good about your Art
We've all had those moments as an artist where we just can't seem to like what we're doing, where nothing seems sufficient and everybody else seems to draw so much better than ourselves.There's a few simple things you can do to avoid feeling like that or that you can remind yourself of should you already be right in the middle of this mess.
Draw for yourself, not an audience!
     The first and probably most important point, especially for any artist on here who in one way or the other seeks feedback and recognition from their fellow deviants. You should never forget that your art is after all YOUR art, so it should be a means to express yourself, relax yourself, be proud of yourself etc and not anyone else. Never let yourself be pressured to do anything you don't want simply because your watchers might demand it or do anything for the sole purpose of getting more attention. It might make you happy in the beginning but loosing track

Find your way around DA#4: Composition+Perspective
A good composition can turn an 'average' artwork into something memorable. It's more than just 'how to make things look nice'. A well thought-out composition can guide the eye of the viewer, telling a story in just one single image. Even artwork that's technically perfect can be boring if no real though was put into the composition.
It's not always the case, but composition often goes hand in hand with perspective. Many artists struggle with this (both beginners and more advanced), but a basic knowledge of perspective can really take your work to the next level. It's an essential tool for drawing credible backgrounds and landscapes. 
The basics for these two skills seem easy, but more advanced composition and perspective can be real brain-breakers. I've collected tutorials here to help you get started. Read, learn, practice, and be amazed by your own work!
Tutorials and quick tips to get you started

An alternate method to expand your comfort zone!
Anthro Week
Everyone has probably experienced something similar to this: you consider yourself being fairly good at drawing this specific thing and you enjoy it too. But you want to get good at drawing something new, and hope that you can start this subject off with equal ease and experienced intuition. However, upon tackling this new thing, you suddenly are met with feeling like a beginner all over again and quickly lose your enthusiasm. After all, it's not enjoyable to be bad at something while knowing what your best can look like.
I'd say this is the common artist's dilemma of the "comfort zone", and broadening it is a struggle most artists go through at some point in their journey.
What does this have to do with anthros?
Well, first of all, I consider the term "anthro" being a similarly broad term as "humanoid" - thus when I talk about anthros I describe creatures that simply have both human and animal characteristics.
So, I've noticed some common occurrences here
:iconremarin:Remarin 144 27
Are You Procrastinating?
Raise your hand if you're procrastinating. If you have something you should be doing, but you're not. If you keep saying, I'll start it in ten minutes, which quickly becomes more. Or even if, like me, you want to work on something, maybe an art piece or story, and you just can't bring yourself to do it.
I'm betting there are quite a few hands up. Even if you can't see them, they're there. Mine is. So it's nothing to be ashamed of, and I think that's something really important to remember, because beating yourself up about it certainly isn't going to make you want to do it more. 
Maybe you don't enjoy this thing you should be doing. Maybe you're scared of it. Maybe you haven't the foggiest idea why you just can't seem to get around it, and that's okay too.
I've found that lately this has been a problem with a lot of my hobbies. It happens a lot around crunch time for my university work (which is now), but instead of not being able to study, I can't draw, or write, or play video gam
