Journal Entry: Sat Oct 27, 2012, 2:48 AM
Okay, this is where I get all serious. This might be worth reading for everyone who is feeling down, has problems and I would like if 'popular' artists would take the time to read this too!
I have no idea how long this journal is going to be, but I want to make use of the space to help as much as people as I can.
People find their art ugly, or don't think they improve at all compared to other artists. they say some of their friends 'surpass' them in drawing.
You can NOT compare artists with each other. everyone is different. regarding the high skill of someone means they practised ALOT. maybe even more than you do right now. That is something you should be happy for. Be happy that with the patience and time it is possible to reach any level you have been aiming for!
just telling yourself that you will never be good does not help. Everyone has their ups and downs at drawing and you need to accept that. maybe you will have more urge to draw today than tomorrow. But please don't draw if you only do it to be better than other people.
GOOD ARTISTS ARE THE PEOPLE WHO NEVER GAVE UP!
For the 'popular' people, maybe it is good if we encourage the starting artists. I always try to comment as much as I can. I saw the improvements in some people and it really makes them happy if you comment on their art. A watch can make the difference in someone's confidence, because they know we are interested in their art.
Now, I am not trying to serperate the popular from the unknown, but I am trying say that if we all work together we can help each other improve and be happy. Seen today, this difference is just too big and clear.
I hope I could settle my point there for a little.
I also want to say that I am here for everyone who has problems. wether it is about art or problems in real life, I am ready to help! Note me, comment on this journal or contact me on skype.
If you note me is up to you, I might not know you. you might not know me, but I would even be ready to help with personal problems. If you want critique on your art, you can ask me too! I might not be the best at drawing but I know where mistakes are.
If you want to discuss anything or want to add something to this journal, just say! c:
oh, and I would love if you spreaded this for a bit? I actually want people to read this.
