I really want to start actually drawing with my hands. My most recent art pieces are done on Adobe Illustrator app with my fingers. I also have so much art to catch up on RIP

I'm beginning to realize just how amateur of an artist I am. God, my stuff is so bad.
It also doesn't help that all of my friends have improved so much and are all so much better than me and I've gotten virtually no where.

I'm wondering why I wanna raise my prices when out of the 400+ followers I have not even one who wants to commission me or like only one in every ten openings.
(but I also blame myself for not advertising a lot, but its not like I get comments asking for openings or anything either...)
Like I'm actually liking my art where its at but I feel like others don't think its worth the measly $10-$20+ yet :/

I have to draw a dog's mouth for a reference sheet, so I'm looking up reference images and all the similar suggestions are obscene furry things. I don't know if I should laugh or cry.

When you draw the lineart on the sketch layer and don't notice until you have to erase the sketch.

My art has gotten worse. I can't draw anything right without a reference, and even then it's bad.

One of the worst feelings is trying to draw vent art but then not being able to draw it well at all
It just makes you feel even shittier about yourself / the situation you're in

I always come back to murder or attempted murder in a story I'm writing. I can't think of any actual story.

(Don't know if this should be here or in "Minor Rants" but I'll just through it here)

I gotta stop working on everything in one canvas, I lost so much progress cause I do that and cut everything out and save individually later x.x and I never learn!
I was almost done with a new icon for myself now I gotta start ALL over

Have you ever drawn something

And felt like it looked familiar

And noticed you accidentally made it look just like another art piece

And you gotta redo
