I have a horrible attention span which is preventing me from finishing anything other than comms :'D
I need to like figure out how to block my browser and my browser only for when I'm drawing XD and even then when I draw I get up and randomly walk around every 10 minutes or so :'D

Do you have Google Chrome? There's an extension on the Web Store that allows you to type in certain websites you want to block/unblock, for specific time intervals (ex. 15 minutes blocked, 5 minutes unblocked, and the cycle repeats). The only way to override it is to remove the extension!

I do the same thing all the time, I was working on some art 15 minutes ago, next thing I know I'm listening to traditional Swedish folk music and posting on FT.

All my drawings look like they were drawn by a different person. I just can't seem to stick to a style! :?

I feel like the last drawing I finished is a direct downgrade from the one I finished before.

I can't seem to draw alva and be happy with it, I feel like he has a good design but I can't draw him well for some reason

Super minor rant and I'm guilty of doing it myself but I wish people would love their art more! I totally get being self-critical and it can be good at times but when you're really just shitting on your art it's so sad. I know this is contradictory to this whole thread for the most part but being around TONS of art kids lately, it's surprising to see the lack of confidence. Love your art and your talent!!

^ Same, I like it when people are more confident in their work. Its a shame its kinda the in thing to hate on your work, I mean I get it not all of us are happy with our own art that's completely normal and helps us improve but I get sad when someone calls their art trash and totally just picks it apart ;w; I find that works the opposite and discourages people to quit.
Another thing that's unfortunate is that if you are confident about your art your generally seen as arrogant :'D people suddenly get this "oh you think your better than everyone!" mentality for some reason xux
I know my art is good and am proud of myself, its not near perfect but I'm quit happy with it and it'll only get better but I don't say it often to avoid people thinking I'm arrogant :'D

--------------------------------------------------------

I'm super happy with my recent piece but I murdered my hand for it, I was suppose to work on comms today ;w;
Take care of your hands kids and take breaks often and stretch, your hands will thank you for this <2 oh and also invest in a wrist brace XD

Nobody in this fandom likes cuter art, I've been offering up comms to people who are looking lately and just nobody has any interest :/ When I post to groups my stuff is always ignored but people eat up the realistic stuff. I've been working on some Halloween YCHs but I feel defeated, like there's probably not even a point in opening them? My YCHs don't ever get interest outside of my friends (which I'm thankful for but I DO need a wider audience)

Yes I know some people do like cute art, please don't quote me saying this is untrue, I'm allowed to rant ah
