Most of us know that feeling of drawing something that you really like but never being noticed for it. I drew this not only for other but also for myself for I am no where near excluded from this.
I have this habit of comparing my art to other people’s art and getting upset and downing myself when it gets alot of attention and I get little/none. I know I shouldn’t do that but I do it anyway. But for a matter of fact, I do not suck. And I have been told this many of times. I may not be as detailed as other people or popular or anything. But what really matters is that you are happy and that you know you are improving. We dont need hundreds of notes, thousands of messages and billions of fans to assure us that our work is up to par. We can do that all on our own. If your drawing could come to life, they would tell you that you dont suck. You put in the time and effort to give them life, I would be pretty grateful for that.
And I hope that someday, I will be able to accept this. I know that someday, I will have more confidence in myself and my abilities. And when that day does come, no matter where my artistic abilities stand, I will look at it and say “I did fucking good” and I wont need anyone for clarification. I will be able to accept praise generously, and criticism humbly.
And I will know, for a fact that I dont suck.
