I'm going through a huge art crisis right now; I hate my style and I know that's nothing unusual, but that's on top of being unsure about my career choice ??? Like I love graphic design but I'm so bad at it, I used to think I was okay but getting into upper-level classes has made me realize that's not true. After I graduate I might just do drawing/crafting freelance completely and give up graphic design, but...idk. I feel like that'd make me a failure as an artist or something? A waste of my degree, at least :/

haven't been inspired in a while and it kinda upsets me because I use art to deal with stress and I have a lot of stress but like nothing to draw

I'm not sure where the cable of my drawing tablet is. I really hope I didn't lose it because right now I don't know if I can afford a new one >-<

I sometimes feel like I barely improve with my art at all, even if I always sketch stuff 24/7  :/

I feel like my style is way to inconsistent I can't settle on whether to draw more serious or cutesy x.x

I finally got a computer that doesn't crash every ten minutes, downloaded Fire Alpaca, but my tablet doesn't work on this new computer.

How the heck do male bodies work! I can't draw a decent masculine male to save my life XD

Also how do couple poses work? I wanna draw some cute stuff for my boyfriend and I(especially Halloween icons) but nothing turns out right even the simplist poses X3 don't help that I'm bad at male body types.

Exactly how I've been feeling the whole month XD sucks I had a lot of plans for Halloween themed art and adopts too and now its almost over ;_;

And reference sheets are such a pain, I can't even get past step one and when I do idk what to add end up leaving it for later and end up unhappy with what I got so far and start over anyway.
