Sometimes I find stashes of old art and I think, “WOW I WAS PROUD OF THAT? IT SUCKS.”
I still have a lot of old artwork laying around in my computer and around the house. Even some from last year that I think are HORRIBLE. Ugh.
The great feeling is that you can say, “WELL I’M MUCH BETTER NOW.”
Should I upload my old artwork? I was thinking of showing it, but I’m too embarrassed to show it to the world.
In fact, I even have stuff that I hate that I made months ago.
If I DO upload it, I hope that people who’ve told me that my artwork was good, can see that if THEY try really hard enough, they’ll improve! Seriously, no one is just magically born with amazing art skills, they’ve practiced, practiced, practiced! If you want to be great at art, believe in yourself and you will be! 🙂
Anyways, for those who think they suck at art, please stop uploading pictures of artwork you’re not proud of. I hate it when people upload pictures and say, “UGH IT’S SO BAD AND TERRIBLE!”
SERIOUSLY, ALMOST EVERY ARTIST IS LIKE THIS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jffptxOZ5w
I don’t mind if you do a request and say, “sorry if it sucks!” Because when you’re doing requests sometimes you don’t clearly know what the person wants. Or, if you say it sucks and point out the flaw that you’ve made, I don’t mind either! If you ask for criticism, I also don’t mind! 🙂
BUT, if you say it sucks without pointing out what you think looks bad about it, it’s not a request, and you’re not asking for criticism, I actually feel like pointing out flaws in your artwork and even saying that it looks bad (even if my subconscious mind says that it’s wonderful.)
