This has been something that has been bothering me for the past few years, every time I encounter someone who’s just started as an artist, they put themselves down because they’re intimidated by artists who are more experienced. Intimidation is something that every artist has (or will) encounter in their lives, and they need to pull through that fear in order to grow as an artist. Take that intimidation and be inspired about it. What makes it intimidating? What makes their work look so unique? That’s where your learning opportunistic moments will occur, you find those reasons and you create something new out of all that you’ve learned! I believe that anyone, ANYONE, can become an artist. It takes dedication and determination, but I promise you that drawing is one of the most rewarding art forms I’ve ever experienced. You will always learn something new with it, therefore, the fun never stops!
Never stop trying.
Had to reblog since so beautiful and inspiring. I am new to digital painting and picked up my tablet again last night and quickly got discouraged since I felt it wasn’t “good” enough. I’ll think of this and practice, practice, practice!
When are you past the point of no return on the stairs where you realize you forgot something and think to yourself: “fuck it, I didn’t need it anyway.” I almost had that moment on stair #2 in regards to my glasses today.
