IMPORTANT: I keep on writing motivational notes. And I post them because I hope they may reach someone who needs it. Maybe you'll stumble across this random post from some random person (me) on accident, and you decide to read it. Maybe it'll add to your confidence. I surely hope so. I hope my messages will be heard. As long as there's a possibility (which is always there) I will keep on writing. Just a stranger trying to help ✌
The struggle of artists who are ashamed or insecure about their art.
Everyone who creates is an artist. Artists are dreamers, creative people, lovers, thinkers, feelers, perceivers and so much more. Who dare to put their souls on paper/skin/poems /whatever medium. Beautiful minded people who dare to express themselves. Artists pay attention in other ways, and see things in other ways, than people who aren't active in art.
Therefore I think artists are very important to our world, and often underappreciated or underrated.
Art is important. ☆
I am shy about my art too. I think we're all a little insecure. But it's important to share it. Critisism is good as long as it doesn't stop you from growing and improving. So don't let it stop you. Sometimes art doesn't turn out the way you wanted. But that's okay because we all have our little flaws, we just don't show it. If you only post your best stuff, it'll create a wrong image. So our mistakes are okay. Our failures are important and crucial for further improvement. You can't be perfect all the time, and as a perfectionistic drawer I know this feeling perfectly well. Just don't be too hard on yourself.
I'm not saying you need to post your 'failed& #39; sketches, but you can at least accept and appreciate them. They are valuable.
Don't compare yourself too much to other artists, too. They're different, have different methods and/or artstyles and different minds, they also have other experience and practice. That makes it incomparible. Doesn't mean you can't learn from others or be inspired by others. Those are great. Again, don't be too hard on yourself. Everyone grows at his/her own pace.
We are the dreamers ✌
