EDIT: Wow, I'm gettin' llamas already, lol :O

EDIT2: Oh, cool-- got front page for 8 hours again xD Thanks everyone!

EDIT3: Um, I apologize if I don't reply to your comment ^^" I'm kinda swamped-- but really, I'm reading them all! Promise :D

EDIT4: Thank you for all the llamas, points, watches, and favs~! :la:

Will it? Will it stop you?

There are going to be more talented artists out there. That's life. But is that going to stop you?

There are many incredible artists here on dA. Does that mean you can't become one yourself?

Some of us come by talent easily. Some of us have to work a little harder to get it than others.


One thing I've learned while being here on dA is that just because an artist is better than me doesn't mean I suck at what I do. It really doesn't. It just means they're more talented in that area.

Is that going to stop me from doing what I LOVE to do?

I love love love to draw.

I don't do it for the views. I don't do it for the favs. I don't do it to keep watchers.

I do it because I LOVE to do it.

Does that mean I should stop just because there a ton more artists that are better than me at drawing?

Heck, no! :lol:

Why should that stop me? That should ENCOURAGE me to get better! It seems as if the term "role models" hasn't been used all that recently these days.

So, yeah. Same with all of you out there that write, draw, edit, etc-- are you going to stop doing what you LOVE to do just because someone happens to be better at it?

I hope not!

As one of my favorite characters in the D.Gray-Man manga lives by: "Keep walking. Never stop."

So don't give up, yeah? ;)

Yes it will

If it seriously stops you, then you're clearly not determined enough to improve artistically.

It can be pretty disheartening to find incredible artwork done by someone younger than you are... (I've seen professional stuff made by 13-year olds on here) but I'm not stopping just for that.

Aye, I know the feeling. I get so many comments on this stamp saying "yes" that it'll stop them from making art that I've pretty much lost the patience to give "YOU CAN DO IT!" speeches :'D

NOPE :3 because I will never be as good as them if I don't keep going and practice, my favorite quote it
