It's all so beautiful...I think I'm gonna cry...
People with your kind of talent make me want to throw out my sketchbook.
and I mean that in the most wonderful and positive of ways.

Oh sweetie... come here and let me love on you....
I was just looking at one of my old sketchbooks the other day (and I mean...old, not to date myself, but it's from like 15+ years ago), and my art when i first started out was crap. Well... let me correct myself, it wasn't crap, it was beginners art. You learn by doing, and something I love is being able to see the progression of skill as I better learned how bodies fit together, how proportion works, how to draw hair, eyes, clothing, etc. I know its hard when you're so close to it, but try not to hate your efforts. It really upsets me when I hear that people tear pages out of their sketchbooks or throw away their art because all I can think is that in 15 years they won't have anything to go back to to show themselves how far they've come.
We're our own worst critics. Always.
And if you're putting your effort and passion into a piece of art - that genuine effort and passion and dedication is beautiful, even if the art itself doesn't look the way you want it to yet.
(And one final word of wisdom: it will NEVER look 'the way you want it to yet'. You will always look at your art and think of how you could have done x, y, or z better. So try to love it for what it is ♥)

that is the nicest thing someone has ever said to me about my art...
I guess I never thought of it that way. Thank you, I feel a little better now. :love: :glomp:

Of course! Please believe it! I know it's so hard to look at someone's art you admire and to feel like you will never ever compare (I know, because I'm there, all the time!) but you never know who is looking up to you. Some of the artists I admire the most are not the people who have technical excellence, but are the people who I see constantly striving to learn and improve and don't seem to give a shit about what other people think of their art. The people who started learning to draw later in life, or after they'd been told a thousand times that they sucked at art, and just kept at it because they loved it.

Your art is already 100x better than where I was when I started out, keep on keepin' on and as long as you love it keep doing it! ♥♥♥
