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.

So?

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? ;)

Other artists may offer better quality and have more experience to show, but there isn't a single person who can offer the same ideas, technique and style as you. Just become few will see never withhold your brilliance to the world

((Sorry for such a long comment on a slightly outdated post))

I often feel below everyone else, but at least I'll just keep showing what I can do.

I do it because even though I'm not the best, art is all I have to live for.

Pretty much everyone here is better than me, but I can tell that I am improving.  Plus, I really enjoy drawing!Painter

I had actually given up on art some years ago when my mom criticized one of the finest works I personally think I have ever done, and when I went to fix it (I used new paints, and the colors were too dark, she said), I destroyed it.  I haven't drawn or painted since, and no Paint program (except for my mad Times Table Chart! XD), either.

I think I need someone to tell me what to do or give me an assignment... perferably digital, because I cannot upload images, but at least if I drew something again, I'd be doing something with my hands and heart again.

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.
