Everytime I feel good about some of my art, I look at someone else's masterpiece and immediately lose all self-confidence

Also, everytime someone says "it just takes practice," I feel like I'm being told a hollow promise (even though it's valid advice).
I sometimes feel like I'll never get better at drawing.

it's definitely hard, and it often feels like you won't get better. drawing as often as possible and practicing is truly the only way to do it, and if there were other methods, you bet ur butt i'd go and try it out LOL because practicing all the time is certainly tedious.
if it makes you feel any better, try putting together a year to year type thing, or even month to month to try and document your progress. i do that sometimes! here's mine;;

this one is inCREDIBLY olD. 2012 LOL. thE ART IS sO BAd compared to where i stand now omghg, , ,
but anyway hahaha...
you can see improvement in just over a year, like. the line quality drastically increases, starts becoming more clean and less messy.


this one is my year-2-year that goes from 2010 all the way up to the end of 2015.


it can be a real ego boost to put together something like this and look back on it, hahaha. i assure you you'll notice improvement, even if it's the smallest thing!

I usually feel good about my photography after a shoot, then I see other people's work on a similar subject matter and end up feeling shity about my own stuff. This usually happens at photography club and while I try not to compare my work to everyone's else's it hard to stop myself

When I sit down at home with real drawing tools and blank paper:
-No motivation
-No ideas
-Why draw when you can surf the web

When I'm at school with lined paper and a dull pencil, supposed to be paying attention to a lesson:
-woo hell yeah it's drawing time

Holy shit I hate it when that happens


I'm drawing General!Hieroglyph and Dominic (another character of mine) in one of those dumb "draw the otp" things and it's proving to be a very long and tedious journey

It's much easier to draw with a pencil than with a mouse

Proportions and shapes in general are hard. I can't draw anything without it looking like Squidward's paintings
