Things that don't make you wanna kick someone (Artist Edition)
« on: December 29, 2016, 07:14:25 pm »
I feel like we need a more positive counterpart to the Artist Rants thread. I mean, even though we artists often hate our own art (while the rest of the world struggles to see why), we do in fact sometimes feel proud of our work, or think that we did something right for once. Or sometimes there's just things that artists get excited over that others might not. (Getting pencils for Christmas? Awesome!)

Anyways, I'll start. I'm over-writing things.  :fox-:P:
I often think I'm not improving much with my art at all, but then I look at my 2015 art and remember that I've gotten much, much better. It's honestly a nice confidence booster.

Yes, whenever I'm feeling like my art is getting no where I look at my old art even from a few months ago. Its such a nice confidence boost ^^

Also I'm happy with how my new icon turned out, although a tad bit dark when shrunk ^^''

I'm at the point in my art where, if I really put my mind to an idea and practice a few times, I can draw anything! It feels really good

Seeing how rapidly I improved over the last year is a big thing for me. I went from rectangle nosed, sausage legged wolves to anthros that I think are pretty good, sometimes.

I drew some concepts for some anthro dragon characters (a bard, scholar, warrior, blind judge, and thief), and I don't think they look terrible

Also, I've had more motivation to draw lately
