Let's Pretend To Be Artists! by RemnantComic Let's Pretend To Be Artists! by RemnantComic
It's one of THOSE weekends, children! ^____^

Nothing I draw seems to look like what I want it to and, more importantly, look right. It's been that way for DAYS now. Ah, to be an "artist"! I wish I had a useful talent, like refrigerator repair.

We all go through this feeling, I reckon. : ] If not with art, with SOMETHING. The best way to deal with it, I find, is to accept that you're a fraud and no one will ever really think well of you. THAT gets me through the day! : D

More art! : D

Let's read a comic!

You might consider a pair of glasses. Your art ain't bad. Or maybe look at it through a mirror? Usually helps to see your illustrations the opposite way you intended them.

Ah! How very, very kind of you, Devu! <X D I admit, I can be a bit harsh on myself, but as much as it is me being pragmatic it's also a useful tool to never get complacent! What's more obnoxious than an artist who goes "Aren't I great? I am, of course!" ; D

And the mirror trick is very useful! I've used it in the past, but you know what I've found is equally good? Smartphone pictures! Yep, I take a shot of a drawing with my iPhone and if there's something really blatantly wrong with it, I can usually figure it out! : 3

I noticed the smartphone trick, myself. Never used it for that purpose though.

And sure, you are very welcome! Everyone has a way of self improvement and for some it is self-hate (for a lack of a better term). Some positive or neutral feedback is quite nice every once in a while, so, I'm glad you are taking it the way you are. Fascinating, really! The way an artists mind is using the push of one self and the pull of others to keep balance... I'm confident, that you will be fine.

Hahah! It's ALL of us, my friend! <X D Even the best artists, the ones who make a handsome living off their skills (and notoriety, many times) have these moments. Especially in the quiet times, when no one is there to go "No, nooo, you're being too hard on yourself." heh!

Right, I am learning that more and more. As a perfectionist I struggle with fear of failure and mediocrity a lot, but when I push through it I usually manage to achieve something, even if its simply learning from mistakes.

Lol sometimes the aether just doesn't flow correctly and we can't warp it to our liking. Mayhap a decrease in aether because of the great art that we do in our other time. I wonder if at higher artist levels they learn to make great art using less aether, thus keeping a native flow between themselves and the pen! Mere conjectures of course, but I think if we were to draw things we don't normally draw, we could create another siphoning port in our body to weave that bit of aether that surrounds us....yes....the aether...ALL PRAISE THE OLD ONE, GIVE ME ALL THE AETHER!

I feel like this all the time, mainly because I could never draw in the first place and I usuall6 give up on learning because I still suck afterwards.

The act of getting out of the bed in the morning is criminal. It is against my will, this is oppression. I would say we should rise up, but I'd rather roll over. :iconthefonzplz:

Nop,e nope - it's across the board, I'm sure. I mean, maybe there are a few apex predator elites who NEVER feel this way... but I bet they go mad with power and self-destruct before anything can come of their gifts. ; D
