My name is Nienke. I love Doctor Who and Matt Smith. Other stuff you might find here: Harry Potter, Sexy Youtubers, Sherlock and books. If you want to know something, just ask me. I don't bite. Usually.
just fucking draw. don’t compare yourself to other people, don’t stop because you drew a lot last tuesday and you haven’t visibly improved. it takes time, effort, and a lot of perseverance. besides, no matter how “bad” you think you are, there’s still gonna be someone who thinks the stuff you produce is the best goddamn thing they’ve ever seen in their entire life. the artist you were five years ago would have their mind fucking blown by the artist you are today. so just draw a fuckton, because every new thing you draw is one drawing better than you were before.
^^^ EVERYTHING about this. Also, don’t call artists “naturally gifted” or say “Oh I could NEVER be good at art like you are” because skilled artists have put blood, sweat, tears, and years of their lives into getting as good as they are. If you did that, you’d be good too. If you want to compliment an artist, say “All the work you’ve put into improving your art? It’s paying off.”
