I'm getting my art motivation back
Problem is I'm still recovering from surgery especially since complications came up
So its hard for me to do art when I feel pain

I have a fursona named Tabbystar. I've had her for years and she's literally my baby, I'd do nothing to change her.

But I just found out there's so many different OCs that look exactly like her. One is called Queen Paint, which is literally Tabby but with yellow eyes.

I feel so bad. Is my fursona really that unoriginal? What if I get accused of copying?

Okay, as a guy, I find drawing the female form a nightmare, biggest reason, boobs. I have NO IDEA what to do with those, they are either too big and I feel perverted, or they're too small and all the girls in my art class are like, "make 'em bigger, breasts have size."  I'm fine with the hips too, those aren't a problem, it's breasts, and head proportion, but you don't feel dirty if the heads the wrong size.

Why do people think I was just born with the ability to draw? Why do people think fetus me just developed art skills? People are constantly telling me "well I practice a lot and I'm still not good. You're just naturally talented you probably never had to learn!." Like no, I started drawing seriously in 5th grade. I drew everyday. It was all I could do because I didn't have friends.

yea u just gotta look up a lot of tutorials and female drawing references. it was weird to me too for a long time, but eventually you get used to it and it becomes normal.

Even as a girl I found it very awkward when I was younger(though for me "perverted" was "lesbian"). I actually find the female form very fun to draw now boobs and all XD
Just look up plenty of references and practice, you'll loose that awkwardness eventually if you keep doing it and you'll get the hang of them. How I saw one person describe them is kinda think of them as waterballoons. Its pretty accurate tbh X3

Oooh I know this one, people love to tell me how talented I am and how they could NEVER be as good, and I'm like, I've been drawing since I was like... 5. And I draw almost constantly. That is legit the only reason I am good at art, it wasn't a natural skill, I was utter garbage when I was younger and my kindergarden pictures looked like any other kids. I just... Didnt stop doing art so I got better. Thats how it works.

I said this in things you find annoying thread but why do people feel the need to edit art they didn't do?
Like get the original artist to edit it or just commission a new piece
Someone made that piece its not your place to add your own things to it
Eh :/

I have that problem quite often with my drawings :0 Usually it's when I'm drawing a pose or a perspective that I'm not used to doing and just practicing doesn't help if I don't know where to begin <x3 One thing you could try is looking at some examples of the perspective that you want, and, at first, seeing if there's another thing you can use to hide their lower jaws ^^ Tho I'd say giving it one or two tries before trying to hide it would help in the long run :fox-:):
