Ever look at your art then look at other peoples art and just think to yourself "wow, I suck"...

Totally demoralizing but I realize that that's the only way you get better, the only way you can improve. If you ran around thinking that your work is super great and no body out there can draw what you draw better than you then your work would be static because there's no drive to better it really.

I look at my work and I can see A LOT of room for improvement and I'm glad in a way- I think if I keep drawing, by this time next year I'll see a lot of improvement and that is one of the most uplifting rewards I think an artist can give themselves.

Sometimes it does get a bit overwhelming, seeing such amazing art and thinking you'll never be as good as that. Especially for a person like me, who hasn't been drawing for very long.

I guess I just look at it as negative reinforcement to a degree. It sucks to see a ton of art way better than yours but it really makes me strive to try and get better
