getting better

Sat Jan 5, 2013, 11:45 AM


Hey guys, if you're a new watcher and think you suck, look at this www.youtube.com/user/pokehunte…
Don't think you suck because someone is better, try to become better. I used to seriously look up to people and try really hard to be like them and be noticed by them by bettering my work. I managed to get Bianca, Macky and Riley to add me to their watch and it was the best feeling ever to have people I admired to admire me in return. Bianca and I became such good friends and never would I have thought that I would be able to have a conversation with Macky or even have her say I encourage her. Now please don't look at it like I'm bragging, but I'm telling you this to show that I'm only here because I pushed. I feel bad when you guys say you cry when you see my art because it's like giving up and you should never give up. It's okay to have good and bad days with your art so don't let that get to you either, just take some time off. When I was a kid I could only make one drawing a day because I would run out of "drawing juice". I see everything as a sign and I draw so much lately and then I hit this massive block where I would cry and want to give up in art. I said I wanted to take a break, but I still went back to draw a bit and force myself to draw and find inspiration. I then just stopped completely and drew when I wanted to and cared and didn't see it as really drawing, but doodling. I didn't find inspiration, I found out how to rest and not force myself to do what I love. Love is not forced, so if you "love" drawing, don't force it. After realizing this I am now full of ideas and my passion for art and painting is now "back" and I am so happy and excited to draw for you and myself. A guy came and talked to me today and I stumbled over my words and I said "I cannot English speak right now." and he said don't say that because it only puts yourself down, even as a joke. I later said my memory was becoming very bad lately and I'm starting to think it's due to some mentally weird things going on with me, but he said don't even think that. So if you are having a bad day with your art, don't think it's the end of the world.
I hope this helped you guys! Love you guys! BAI!

Work hard so that you will be better than me when you reach my age! I worked hard and Riley said I did better than her when she was my age and that felt so good! Aim for the best possible :D
