Hey there! I'm not sure if this is a weird thing to ask or anything, but is there a way to be confident in your work while youre working? I really admire your style, and its a huge influence for me, I'm having a rough time with my art, I don't feel like its good enough or that I'm improving no matter how hard I try, and I see so many people younger than me be better at drawing and animation and I went to art school too, I'm not sure, what are your thoughts, if thats okay to ask ;;
Oh man, it’s totally cool to ask this! I think it’s important to remember that everyone goes through exactly what your feeling. I’ve always gone through bouts of hating my work and laying on the floor feeling like my art career is over.
The important thing is to try not to compare yourself to others. Everyone grows in different ways and you might be surprised at how many people look at your work and think it’s more amazing than anything they could do. Even if you’re still just learning, try not to put yourself down. <3 It’s not easy to do, and sometimes we all just need to sulk and wallow in self pity, but pushing through that and continuing to make art afterward is the mark of a confident artist. (At least in my book. ^^)
I hope that helps! And I hope everyone feeling down about their art right now can still have a great day! I believe in you! <3
