I have internet for like 10 minutes so I’m uploading what I drew yesterday
Here’s something I wish someone had told me when I was a little younger: If you spend more time worrying about being a bad artist than you do actually making art, you’re right. You are a bad artist. If you’re letting the fear of failure or mediocrity keep you from something you enjoy, you won’t improve.
The ONLY way to get past that fear is to embrace the joy of making art as only you can make it. Don’t make art as a means to an end, with the ultimate goal of reaching some predetermined point at which you reach a definitive level of skill and satisfaction. Make art because it’s all part of the process of learning and growing and most of all because it’s fun
Yes, it’s okay to vent. It’s okay to find solidarity within a community of people who feel the same way. But if you ever indulge the urge to complain instead of making art, you’re digging yourself deeper into your own grave. As good as it may feel, there is no situation where sitting around comparing yourself to others is the right thing to do
You don’t need to suddenly have confidence, you just need to focus on the joy you feel when you’re doing what you love to do. So shoosh your precious face and make art. Challenge yourself even if you want to cry. You will learn and you will grow. What you make, no matter how flawed, is special because it’s yours
