You can, but it is preferred to put it in your art thread or if you don't have one then start an art thread.

I know, so just put it in the thread and ask for criticism.

I actually forgot all about that, myself. Would have come in handy a few times before, so hey, thanks for the link.

It's really depressing not being able to completely copy something you have in your head, or think of something on your own. Just nothing I draw seems to come out the way I want it to. I look at all my artwork and think this can be improved, but how... I try to just look at other people's art to see what I could do, only making myself a little more upset. Cause I should be thinking of it myself not have to look at others work.

I also don't want to just keep working on the same pictures I have, because I won't really improve that way either considering they are mostly anime drawings. I want to do something with my art, but at this rate I really can't see myself going to far with this. I am not improving as fast as I should be.

It's just a little discouraging that when I see a really cool picture, and I ask the person how long they took to make it and they say like "oh only an hour or so". I am like shit... 1 hour and I barely get the the picture drawn out before I decide to color it in.

Hey, man, don't worry about it - it really just comes with practice, you get faster and better and stronger (lulz). I wouldn't compare yourself to any other artists unless you really are aiming exactly for their art or whatever, because it will just serve to discourage you.

Everyone gets to the stage where they figure out that there are ten million artists out there better at art then they are - just don't let it keep you down, man.

Hey man, don't sweat too much. I used to be the same way when it came to looking at other peoples art for reference or inspiration, I always thought I was copying or ripping them off some how. Then I learned that most of those artist looked at reference themselves. Maybe not during there current works, but at some point in their practice they had. And once I realized it took time to build a mental visual library by looking and studying tons of different art, artist and photos, I felt a lot better about using reference.
But even if you memorize hundreds of different photos or images, sometimes seeing the reference right beside your work to compare or correct yourself is often the best way to go about it. Even when making something that is completely new that doesn't have specific reference, find the different elements that make up something and then just use the reference for that specific area.

Example: Cthulhu's tentacles, find photos of real tentacles :P

So yeah find what you need on Google and buying reference books when you can and then practice, practice, practice.
I hope this encourages you and helps you
