Monster of Self-Doubt


There is tons of work involved in an artist youtube channel. In every video an artist question him- or herself if the content is good enough for the channel. A lot of ideas has been tossed away just out of self doubt. 

WIP: https://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/8ce550f08b26a5fcae6c8e66927a2c40

In my drawing:

Selfdoubt is a monster, created by thrown away ideas and sketches because it was ‘not good enough’ 

Youtubers are humans, as are we. They have insecurities, like we have. Still, every time they put themselves out there, they fight that monster. And we can help. Like, share and give positive feedback, to make the monster grow smaller. 

Monster is made out of papers, wads of paper, broken pencils and a camera as every-eating-mouth. The artist army are colourful fighting the ‘Monster of Self Doubt’.

Hi BRIX! Nice you stopping by my contest entry too! I am not agreeing on the 'losing' part, because I have been entering many many contests already and only got mentioned once or twice. The other times I still gained a lot of experience and learned new skills. I always make sure the process is educative so I will grow in the process. It makes me a better artist. Check out my channel to see how I have grown in skills: The first time doing the contest I didn't even own my digital programs yet!
You see? As long as you enter, you don't lose: you gain.
Only way to loose is not to enter the competition! Always keep that in mind ;)

Selfdoubt is one of the biggest problems of every artist I think. A lot of thought is put into "is this good enough" or "am I good enough", but if we put this aside there are so many great artists in this world :-) Love your idea, reminds me of star wars and artists as jedi :-D
