breaking my tumblr hiatus bc i’ve unearthed this drawing from 3 years ago. it’s always a nice experience to see how much you’ve improved over time because it gives you this sense of fulfilment. anyway, i’ve decided to post this to remind artists out there that you will always see someone who you think is better than you, but that doesn’t mean you should lose your motivation. use them as inspiration instead, and never compare yourself to them. the only person you should compete with is yourself. draw a lot, keep practicing, look at your older drawings and see how much you’ve improved. strive to get better every time on your craft, not so you can be better than anyone, but because it’s your passion and doing so makes you happy.
