When you try to redo a piece of art to make it better, and it comes out worse than the original.

I know the feeling, although I haven't had anybody steal my art yet(that I know of) I still hate having to put an ugly watermarked across the middle of my work cause people can't keep their hands to themselves :/
That's like the first thing your taught as a child why do people feel its okay to do that with art o.O

I know I'll never be as good a musician as I could be if I devoted myself to it
I know why and I'm not going to change my mind
But it still hurts.

I can't stand when people dismiss my photography because "they can do the same on their phone". No you cant. I'm using composition skills (rule of thirds, unique angles etc etc), these people are just snapping photos for memories. My photography is an art form, please don't devalue my skill since cameras are available to everyone now

I'm not a photographer but I completely agree! My art history courses take us to a lot of local and modern museums, where a lot of photography is displayed for professional works and shows. I constantly hear all these snide remarks about how 'anyone' can do it and it is really upsetting.

There are similar instances in photo-manipulation, that it's not 'real' art since you didn't physically make the scene. Like, stop lol

I have this weird dream of wanting to be able to make dumb animations of my characters/fursonas, but I've never even attempted animation, I don't know where to start. And I can barely do digital art, at least not without a traditional drawing first. How in the world could I ever make smooth animations? I don't even like how my normal art looks most of the time.

Try starting with little things, like characters blinking or smiling or waving?

And I can barely do digital art, at least not without a traditional drawing first. How in the world could I ever make smooth animations? I don't even like how my normal art looks most of the time.

Do what I do, picture how your fursonas/ocs would interact with each other. Like for example, if a character always acts cocky, how would the others react around him/her? Annoyed, uncomfortable, supportive maybe..? Use the character's traits/personality to your advantage, especially if you want to develop your ocs/sonas-Imagine them in adventures and scenarios

I do the exact same thing, picturing and drawing my sonas/adopts interacting with eachother heck, my latest piece is my sonas all bunched up together, 'the original four' or regals is what I call them

For smooth animations, try experimenting with different facial expressions or poses-I like to use expressions a lot, because that's what people seem to focus on more-The face, eyes, etc..

(EDIT): Also to add more 'pizazz' to your sonas, give them characteristics that stand-out. Try giving them a certain gait (like walking with a high chest, this could show the character is confident or has a very dominant nature) or maybe hand-gestures they often use when engaging with others

Simple things like that could make a big change, if you think about it
