Is it wrong or stupid to take a step back, look at your art you've made in the past year or two and compare it to that of another, and realize you're going backwards in comparison? Because I do this a LOT and that always seems to be the result I get. >:( <-- lol i added parentheses
personally, i tend not to do this. not because i think its wrong or stupid, but because im lazy. personally, i accept that others may have/have not made more progress than me and try to focus on MY art instead of sulking at what others have done/can do.
How the fuck do you not give a shit about your overall progress compared to that of others and just focus on your love for art?
i do care about my overall progress, i really do. i know that i havent made leaps and bounds, but every little thing counts.
maybe, if you really think you "arent improving" (which, in my opinion, you are getting better every time) you should try to do something thats out of your usual spectrum. i dont want to go as far as saying to do lineart (the horror!), although it might be fun to try, but do something you dont usually see in your art. perhaps something robot-related, space-y, or bright and happy? i like your art as it is, but if you experiment, you might find something else you might enjoy, and it might help you "improve" :)
I realize talking out of line like this will probably win me negative internets, but whatever.. I never get off what sits on my chest, so I might as well try.
fuck negative internets.
