Pandy..what do you do when you want to quit drawing because no matter how hard you try you just cant get it right?
I have never felt this way and I’m going to tell you why. It’s not because I had some innate talent or something. Or was just “naturally good” because I was not. Not at all. If you were around to see me go through my old art, you’d know what I mean. But, the reason I have never felt this way is because I loved drawing. I loved immersing myself in the my own world, in my own head, seeing the characters interact and appear on paper. They were crappy, everything was wrong, but I didn’t care, because I had fun. Honestly, I didn’t really share my art or compared my art with others until much later, until I had already ingrained my loved for drawing within me. I think this is where the issue lies. We get so caught up in “wanting to be that artist” that we forget to enjoy drawing. That path is going to suck and you’re work is going to be crap for a long time, but if you really love it, if you really enjoy drawing and want to keep going, improvement and success will come to you.
